I must get going with creating my logline and finding the prefect title for my still untitled project.
It is something that will not happen if I don’t put my foot down and pull myself in the collar.
So, the 25th I’ll present the title and the logline.
I’ve heard other writers who do not dare to publish these things on the Internet. Am I a fool? I think not. Attention is the best thing a writer can get. If I write that I write, but do my best to hide what I am writing on, the situation will be quite comical. If I present a stunning logline and tell that the script is on the way, I have amped it all up.
Stealing? Sure you can write a script on my logline, it is a risk I take. But it will not be the same script. And if it comes down to it, it does not look good to write a script of someone else’s logline, which is so obviously published on another writer’s page. I dare say I take a greater risk, not publishing. A logline must be fretted by other people. I must tell it to others to know if it works. Please, do not prove me wrong on this one.
By the way, I’ll rewrite the logline for Sunlight when I’m on it. It sucks.
Here are some resources for writing longlines:
- Present the main character.
- Tell us what he/she strive for.
- Add the hook.
All in one stunning, selling sentence.
