O Loglines!

To be 100% honest, I hate writing them. I tell myself: fantastic writing exercise! Or: you’ve just written 5 potential maybe-winners! Or: it’s midnight WTH. And: time to pay somebody.

Query letter, synopsis, logline are sometimes the ONLY bits in the way of submitting my first chapters.

Luckily, my husband is a writer and retired (although not while married to me, so forever) professional proofreader.

Luckily, I have family and friends and writer-friends who don’t mind reading logline related missives.

I grouse and am grumpy, yet carry on with this part of the getting-somewhere process–lately while wearing my new Christmas hat from husband and son.

Yours in vocation-related perseverance,
