Losing to the blurb

Training cats3What exactly is the trouble with writing a blurb? I can do blurbs for other people all day long. And when other folks get at mine, it’s like TWEAK! TWEAK! and there you go. And it looks so easy.  >..<

A morning spent on the blurb for Training Cats, so far has resulted in this:

Evan dies inside a little every time he sees Brent and Tyler together. Can’t Brent see he’s being taken advantage of and treated like dirt? Why does he put up with it?

Now that the gloss is off the relationship, Brent’s asking himself that same question. He has a better chance of teaching a cat to sit and stay than of convincing handsome, glamorous Tyler to be thoughtful, and it’s time to stop trying.

With the right bait, Evan can teach a cat to come, or a man to observe what’s before his eyes. A trail of M&Ms leads Brent to notice the considerate, steadfast man who’s been part of the background too long.

Once this is declared done, I post.

  1. You know what I think it is? When you read someone else’s story, you’re better able to pick out the major threads and facets, the stuff that really should make it into a blurb because it’s so important to the story. When it’s your own, you think everything’s important!
