by Erica Verrillo on Publishing … and Other Forms of Insanity:
When my agent asked me for loglines for my book, I had no idea what she was talking about.
I pretended I understood. (FYI, “faking it” is a required skill for writers.)
Once I was off the phone, I immediately looked it up.
Loglines, I discovered, were a way of pitching movie ideas when a filmmaker only has a minute (or less) to pitch an idea to a producer.
