Blurb writing is like a paper cut compared to synopsis writing which is like a stab wound. Both painful, one just a lot smaller than the other.
I suck at both, incidentally.
And today I will probably start my synopsis for The Baby Bargain (new title for the WIP). In preparation, I thought I'd write a 2 line blurb to go with my tag line on e-harl. This is what I came up with.
"What happens when a rancher at the end of his rope meets Alex, pregnant, alone and down to her last dollar? A bargain – but will it solve their problems or make things even more complicated?"
Suckage. Totally. But they say you get better with practice, so I'm sure other versions will follow...the scary thing is I can't write 2 snappy lines, and I have to come up with 2 PAGES! LOL
Of course, I could always procrastinate and instead do some character workups for my next ms.
Did any of you watch Grey's Anatomy last night? McSteamy (Mark) is smoldering hot. He is SO going to be a hero in a later ms. Just not this one. He won't fit. But there's a place for him somewhere....somewhere he can really use those eyes. And be damned if he won't have a dirty mistress.....(you had to have seen the show to get that).
