Last week’s logline blogfest was awesome. So many comments, so much feedback, so many versions. I’d love to keep that momentum going. How about a one-line pitchfest?
Two lines was great practice for the MSFV contest next month and for query letters, but sometimes you just need to write one sentence for a contest, or to pitch an agent in person, or to start off a query letter. And our non-writing friends and family will listen to one sentence with much more patience (and less of the glazing-over eyes) than two. Am I right?
So let’s give it a try. I can’t promise the same turnout as last week, or the participation of an awesome author like Michelle McLean, but maybe someone will see what we’re doing and offer some help.
To start the ball rolling, here’s mine:
Sixteen-year-old Rwandan Cecile Kwizera survived the genocide that killed her father and classmates, and now she must put the past and the guilt behind her long enough to keep her housekeeping job and provide for her family.
Please offer feedback in the comments, as well as links to your own posts with one-line pitches.
Thanks again to Steena Holmes for giving me the –fest bug and helping me link in to her awesome community!
