Creating a Logline
One instructor, wish I could remember who so I could give credit, referred to it as that line in the TV Guide that describes what the movie or show is about. In fact, as I recall, our homework was to go study the TV Guide to figure out how a logline works.
My ya fantasy's logline is a sheltered princess discovers her remarkable gifts with horses on a dangerous quest to find her father’s murderer.
My space opera's logline is a space pirate almost loses everything she cares about when she’s blackmailed into running a dangerous mission for the military.
I am trying to work up a logline for my paranormal novella and it is not wanting to come. Interestingly the 3 sentence pitch came easy with this one and usually it's the reverse. I struggle with the 3 sentence pitch (well, maybe not struggle but spend a lot of time rearranging and moving words around) and the logline seems to just come mostly formed from that pitch. But not this one.
So, how about you? Do loglines comes easy or hard?
