The January Challenge 2018

3rd January 2018 – Day Three – Blurb it out

It’s Day 3 of #TheJanuaryChallenge.

Have you always dreamed of writing a book? Now’s the time to think about it.. and if you haven’t, don’t worry! There’s always one story we can tell..


Imagine you’ve written a novel and the only thing missing is the blurb – you know, the couple of paragraphs on the back that provide a short description of the book. Write the blurb of your book, tell the story or say what it’s about. You can even write reviews of your previous work! If you’re stuck for story ideas, maybe write the blurb for your autobiography.


How did you decide to summarise your story so far? What’s the best way to grab people’s attention in a few sentences? Is it the characters, the setting or even the plot twist?


Share your writing with us – we’d love to see what achievement you want to celebrate
