Postcard from camp - Happy Monday!

I'm chugging right along and feel good about my progress at camp. I know some of you are camping with me. I'd like to get an email going for support and updates, if you're interested! My cabinmates are pretty quiet so far...Let me know (taratylertalks >at< gmail >dot< com)

And here are the answers to the Tagline Haiku from Friday:

Party on dudes, (Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure)
You never know where you'll end up. (My book, Pop Travel) 
Size does matter. (Godzilla)

Don't panic. (Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) 
Free your mind. (Matrix Reloaded) 
One man saw it coming. (I, Robot)
Unleash the fury. (the Hulk)

So the show has been cancelled. But the adventure is just beginning. (Galaxy Quest)

The funny thing is these are mostly Sci Fi, and I didn't plan that...but they fit together so well and sci fi does have some great taglines! Yeah, Sci Fi!

A tag line can be a spark to catch reader interest - do you have one for yours?

Enjoy your week! Please come back Friday for a fun TT Talks interview with Christine Rains!

Glad camp is going well! I got a couple of those taglines. I don't have a tagline for my third manuscript yet. Need to work on that.

Stina Lindenblatt said...

You make it seem so easy, but I bet this awesome haiku was a lot of work!

You mean we have to write taglines, too. As if queries and pitches weren't heard enough. :P

Glad you're having a good Camp NaNoWriMo!

I used to love camp, now I'm not so sure - unless they had certain modern conveniences :)

J. A. Bennett said...

Ha! Sci-fi is the best ;) Good luck at camp. I'll bet you'll do awesome!

Theresa Milstein said...

Save the Cat by Blake Snyder helped me with taglines.

Happy camping!

Rena said...

Go Camp Nano! I, for one, am hanging out at camp SewMo. I think we're across the lake...

Heather Gardner said...

Great job on Camp!
Saw this and thought of you.
Still not sure what genre you are considering for Pop Travel but thought I'd send it anyway.

Happy to hear camp is going well! That's neat they turned out to be mostly sci-fi taglines. Hehehe!

Here's my newest for Fearless:
"Always listen when your stuffed hippo says to run."

You sound relaxed... Camp Nano must be going okay... good for you!

I don't have one yet for mine, but your right good tag lines can generate buzz. Good luck in camp!

Lynda R Young said...

I love the scifi taglines and yes, they do fit together well. Alas, I have no taglines of my own. I must work on that...

Tara Tyler said...

thanks for the camp encouragement! i'm taking a tangent, hope it works!

and work on taglines wen you get blocked, might spark yourself!

Tagline Haiku - what a clever idea, and yours are excellent. Or shall I say, most excellent, dude?

Glad to hear camp's going well. :)

Angela Cothran said...

I'm terrible at the tagline. I need to work on that :)

Tara Tyler said...
