Flake-out Friday–Oddly Specific

A few weeks ago there was a flurry of activity with loglines, pitches, etc. I noticed that time and time again, the idea of being specific came up.

I agree 100%. BUT IT’S SO HARD!!!! *flails*

Seriously, how can you include everything in a pitch or logline or query?

You can’t.

But do not despair! Keep working at it…


Don’t take it too seriously. The more pressure you put on yourself, the harder something becomes. To help decrease the intensity, let me take this down a humorous path. Here’s a website that (in my humble opinion) does a fantastic job of simple specificity. Maybe we can take a tip or two from it? *wags eyebrows and grins*

Tell Me About It... Wait- For Reals? Like, For Realz?




Umm... Ummm…

Oddly... Ironic?Oddly Ironic?

    Ha, ha!! I loved those pictures, might even have to steal a few. :o) Thanks for sharing!

    And pitch lines are hard, but they should get easier the more we do them. Good luck!

  7. I LOVE the bottomless pit sign! That is too funny.

    And yes, keep on keepin’ on re: pitches.

  8. The stoplight really leaves me with my mouth hanging open. So, I guess one may turn right on red or sit there forever. I also like the Invisible thread. This one really made me smile.

    I worked where there was a door with a sign that said “caution, door may open”. The door opened two ways, and the sign didn’t help me much. I was smacked by that door more than once. Ha! How does one avoid a door that may open suddenly? I was also guilty of blasting through the door myself forgetting that I could be killing the poor soul on the other side of it. “Oh, I’m so sorry! Shall I call 911?”

    The funny side of life. I prefer it. Thanks for making my day. Blessings to you.
