I came late to blogging. It's a long story having mostly to do with writing under more than one name and the main name - Annie Jones - being soooo hard to drive traffic to a webpage for and then not really sure what to blog about - which I am STILL pretty undecided about (am just sick of writing blogs, but then I was submerged in a long list of them for the last 3 years or so).
My 'for fun' blog titled Helen Helps! was just that, a fun thing that now I need to whip into shape. It began with the idea of sharing advice I'd found in old magazine, pamphlets, etc. But quickly expanded, especially as I discovered how many people love VINTAGE ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING.
So time to apply the old proven writer's technique - HIGH CONCEPT. I still don't have it for that blog (this one is in the title - I decided to write joyful/encouraging things about the writing life - have failed a few times and removed at least one post).
High Concept - it's easy. Super easy. If someone gives a long explanation, they don't get it.
Sure, it can be Gidget meets the Sound of Music but better yet, sum it up in the title: The Flying Nun (which is better - see it's about a nun who can fly and every plot will be about the nun stuff and the flying stuff, done)
It can be The Godfather meets the Hero's Journey - or better, the title The DaVinci Code ( Da Vinci, smart Italian guy, code - a secret to be deciphered)
Writer's Brain... Engage! Oh and if anyone has a suggestion - am open to it.
