I need a tag line!
I've been thinking about this for some time. I need something that encapsulates what I write, will immediately communicate the type of stories I create, and will give a sense of the characters I form. Jayne Ann Krentz (at a workshop I attended at the RWA conference in DC) called it a writer's 'core story'. That so resonated with me, I think about it all the time. I've looked at so many websites and blogs lately that have fabulous tag lines. I wish I'd thought of many of them first! It makes me wonder how those writers came up with their tag lines - how they boiled down what they do to so few, but very powerful, words? I've already given myself enough objectives for January, so I'll be adding this goal to my February list - 'Create a tag line'. It has to be short. It needs to be original. It must be brilliant! Easier said than done, right?
