Go Blurb Yourself!

When an outline isn’t cooperating, try a blurb.

You know what kind of book you want to write.

Imagine it being done.

Imagine the back cover.

Your favorite author, that famous one, wrote a great endorsement, the blurb to end all blurbs. It tells about your book’s storyline, why your characters ring true, other books your tale reflects, and how you accomplished it all.

Stop being yourself for a moment. Take a quick trip to Fantasyland. Write the blurb like that best-selling superstar who inspires you. Put their name on those glowing words. Try to keep the plug to 100 words or less.

There. That’s what you want your book to be about.
