I was asked to write a 25 word log line and a 50 word blurb this week for the same novel. It took two hours of head scratching, groaning, wiping sweat beads off my upper lip, and pacing around the room saying them out loud. I think they are finished and to me they are good, but I'm not sure if someone else will think they meet the standard for merely adequate.
Am I the only one who finds this absolute torture? Any secret formula from those that breeze through them?
