Was the crit session what you expected?
Were the crits helpful?
Critiques are opinions, not cold hard math. Never accept criticism as written in stone because so much of it is personal preferences.
They are tools. Use the ones that serve your purpose. It is your MS and only you know the path to follow.
However, if several critiques say the same thing, it is good to listen. Judge them, use them, and discard the crits that clash with your style.
Now, let’s talk about loglines and have a game of tag.
Loglines, summaries, hooks, pitches; all mean about the same thing. It is one or two sentences, approximately 25 - 30 words. It boils the premise of the book down to its bones.
Leave a comment on this post, link to your blog and post your loglines on your blog site. Members of the crit group can trail along to the sites and we will continue this ‘getting to know you’ session.
Sound like a plan?
Here is my logline for Of Oak and Dragons:
An unexpected inheritance, a snarky rapier with delusions of grandeur, and a tall stranger wreck Leah Sterling’s college schedule and throws her into the middle of an ancient war.
TAG! You're IT!
