I’ll give you a hint. It’s the same answer to ‘What is your novel about?’
Twitter pitches - or loglines - are both approximately the same length, under 30 words. To summarize your novel in so few words and make it interesting is the mark of a good writer. How to keep them legible, informative, and grammatically correct is the bug in the pudding.
Every logline needs the following:
- Main Character
Piece of cake, right? Eh, not so much.
This week is part Fun and part Submission.
- In the Comments section, write a logline/twitter pitch for a famous book or movie without revealing the name.
- Submit your WIP’s logline to beccoff(at)nwmo(dot)com and I’ll post them for review.
To start the creative juices flowing, here is a twitter pitch for a famous book:
In the 1950’s, summer ends with six-year-old Jean’s introduction to racism when her lawyer father defends a black man in the Deep South.
What is the name of the book?
Remember; send the logline for YOUR wip to the above address for posting.
Use comment section on this post for a famous book or movie.
