So.... I'm trying to write a blurb....
I literally stared at a blank page for hours trying to figure out what to say.
Writing the novel was hellish. Writing this blurb appears to be equally so.
I received some help from my good friend E.D., and now I have to find a way to focus the threads of this book into a hierarchy and pitch the book according to what I find most important. Which is also difficult. There is a romance aspect to the book which is hugely important, but it's not really central. I think I want to focus on the mysterious threat more.
It's not great, but it's a start. And with that start, I managed to write one sentence.
One sentence in two hours.
It's not even a good sentence!
So, today will be spent wrestling with this thing. Perhaps I might even get it into a reasonable shape. Or not. Who knows?
I hate blurbs with a passion.
I'm cheering myself up with funny videos at the moment, and there was one that I absolutely have to share with you. Ladies and gentlemen, Hawkeye:
For the record, I really like Hawkeye (it might have something to do with my fondness for archery....), and I really hope they do more with him in the future.
Right, I'm off to stare blankly at a nearly blank page and weep.
