How To Write A Series 03-04 Kick-Butt Cover Copy is done!!!

Exhausted Girl Riding A Bike CartoonJust this one lesson is 124 pages. It’s done, I learned so much by doing this that I’m going to have to rewrite all my own cover copy.

But now that I’m done with this, I have to finish Tales Of The Longview 3: The Philosopher Gambit

That has to go into this lesson. Once it’s done, I can move on to How To Write A Series Module Four.

Gawd, I’m tired. I did not think I was EVER going to get through this lesson, in which I take 23 pieces of volunteered, anonymous student cover copy, dissect it for the essential elements that need to be IN a good piece of cover copy, and then write new cover copy for each story.

I’m pretty sure I totally rebuilt one corner of my brain in the process. I bruised the rest of it. But I am really, really happy with the results. It’s posted in the HTWAS classroom now, and available immediately for all How To Write A Series students at Day 23 and higher. It will appear when you hit day 23 for everyone else in the class.

    I’m really looking forward to that lesson. Cover copy is still a weakness of mine.

    This sounds really interesting! Any chance of it being available outside of HTWAS in some form (for those of us interested in writing cover copy, but not in writing series)? Or is it totally series-specific and I’m missing something?
