Writing blurbs is excruciating for me. I labored extensively over one the other day only to be told (correctly, of course)
that it was a synopsis, not a blurb. (I’m trying to work on my that addiction. It’s more difficult to battle than my comma addiction and less difficult than my struggle to only put one space after a period and not two.)
So anyway. I can hear everybody thinking “If you want to learn to write blurbs, study the back cover copies on your nearest pile of books.” I’ve tried
that it. My brain isn’t wired that that way. (Can’t replace that one.)
So I’m going to write all my blurbs in rhyming form from now on. Yup. I’ll start with Twice Upon A Roadtrip:
Once a couple got stuck on a bus
And got left when she kicked up a fuss
While on that roadtrip
His wick he did dip
Is it love or is it just lust?
I’ll have to think of one for Forever Again. It’s not a comedy, so it may lend itself to some other poetic form. Which sucks, because I can only do limericks and haiku, and my haiku is really bad. Worse than the limericks, even.
So let’s see your blurb in limerick or haiku form! Come! Join me in my bizarre procrastination activities. You know you want to…
