Yesterday's brain-weariness was apparently the precursor of a migraine. I don't usually get the pain -- just the groggy blindness -- but today it blossomed into something more. (Possibly aggravated by eye-strain or allergies.)
In spite of this I did have a good session working on the book description for In Flight. I worked on several different lengths, but was unable to push my brain to get them to quite the point where I want to show anyone.
I also, in a moment of lucidity, wrote half of a blog post on something I learned while doing this, about writing loglines. But alas I only wrote half before my brain dived back under again.
Also alas, while I had a great epiphany about what attracts me to to a book (and it isn't what people think is necessary) I am at a loss to apply that to my own book just now. All I can say is that one or two details -- just a title sometimes -- with no context is usually enough to flag my interest.
The problem with a long book description isn't that it's long, but rather that I might not find those key details when I skim it.
Anyway, I may finish that blog post tomorrow, and if so, I'll post it.
See you in the funny papers.
