Well, that new WIP that cropped up around Christmas hasn't gone away. It took on a life of it's own. The MC nearly sprang from my head all Athena-like, fully formed and ready for battle. I struggled with aspects that kept wanting in, then relented and let them in. I researched my butt off and found the aspects I'd tried to deny actually deepen the story, heighten the tension and in essence make it uber cool. I outlined it with pivot and pinch points (something I've never done before). Then, thanks to a tweet by one of the agents I stalk follow on Twitter, I started tussling with taglines for it. Here's the three I'm chewing over:
Tag 1: Cursed with seeing everyone’s future deaths, seventeen year old Echo Miller uses her death-o-vision clues to unravel the thread of a
sinister plot in her school and stop a massacre before it starts.
Tag 2: Using her curse of seeing future death to stop a tragedy will bring seventeen year old Echo face to face with her own mortality.
AND, (Tweetable) Tag 3: Avoiding love, teaming with a Reaper, and using her curse of seeing future death to stop a massacre just might get Echo killed.
I'm not sure which one I like better. They all have a tid bit or two I love... Maybe it's the lack of caffeine?
Opinions? Ideas? Wanna join the tussle?
Am I going to have to start a new group? The Tagline Tussle... has a certain ring to it...
