Sioux's Book Blurb Friday #1


My friend Sioux is bringing back Book Blurb Friday that Lisa used to do. Check out Sioux's blog for all the nitty gritty details, but basically, you write 150 words or less as a book blurb based on the picture. I’m not very good at this and mine always tend to be really short. I usually just write the first thing that pops in my head, trying not to strain my brain too much, otherwise it hurts too bad, then I want to quit, become all self-conscious, worrying about every little word and hey, this is just supposed to be fun. F.U.N. I don’t have time for anything else but FUN. Sometimes I have a hard time with FUN.  And after reading Sioux’s blurb, I started to compare what I wrote and thought, wow, didn’t even realize there was a clock in the picture, durp, but oh well, F.U.N.... F.U.N.... F.U.N....

 

My 66 word book blurb:

HEADSTONE
Taking a break from her stressful job, Joannie played on the beach having fun, she created what she imaged her headstone to be. Find out what transpires when Joannie loses her best friend suddenly, and while walking through the cemetery after burying her dear friend, she discovers an exact headstone like the one she created on the beach. Was it a sign of things to come?

  1. Lynn--Yours was much more intriguing than mine. I latched onto that clock and all I could think of was time.

    Now--get back off the blogs and get back to your book. ;) (And thanks for playing.)

  7. 66 words? How'd you do that? I used every single one of the 150. Succinctness is not in my wheelhouse.
