If you read yesterday’s post, you’ll know that I’m trying to write a 35-word pitch for Tangled so I can enter it into a super-awesome competition. But summing up 170 000 words in just 35 words is surprisingly difficult – who would’ve thought!
I’ve come up with four pitches and I’d like your opinion on which one you like best (or whether you think they all stink).
- Ceara and Seb – country teenagers and complete strangers – are both moving to the city for uni. Ceara’s terrified of her flatmates; Seb’s sure he’ll fail his studies. Will they survive the semester ahead?
- Tangled follows the intertwined lives of country teenagers Ceara and Seb as they struggle to adapt to uni life, infuriating flatmates, romantic rejection, family betrayals and shattered friendships. Can they possibly survive the semester ahead?
- Ceara’s desperate for love; Seb’s desperate to get laid. Ceara adores reading novels; Seb hasn’t finished a book in years. Two strangers, both moving to Brisbane for uni. A recipe for love, or disaster?
- Uni’s supposed to be fun. But for country teenagers Ceara and Seb, adapting to inner-city life seems impossible. As family secrets are uncovered and enduring friendships are shattered, they’re forced to question everything they believe.
Hard to believe they’re all for the same story, right? Anyway, I have less than 24 hours to enter so, no pressure…
