A book description
The hardest part of finishing up a novel is writing a five or six sentence paragraph about that novel. I struggled for weeks to get the wording just right for the book description for Missing Maggie. I'd honestly almost rather write another book. How can I put everything that happens in the story in one paragraph? How can I get the attention of as many readers as possible from the words I choose for the back of the book? It's stressful, I tell you. One word can turn some readers away. One word can hook them immediately. During my break from the story, I'm going to slowly work on this small masterpiece. I have other writing plans for the break too. I hope to share those very soon.
