I'll enter yours if you'll enter mine!

There's a write-a-funny-log-line contest this week at:

The prizes include a query critique or a first-pages critique (or cookies!), so you can get some one-on-one feedback. Or eat cookies.

Yay for contests!

Question, though, and this may make me really dumb, but I don't understand what I'm supposed to do. Write a sentence summary of my WIP or any book/movie? And do you need the capitalized word thing, too? I feel really stupid right now. :D

Just come up with a funny premise or pun for a book or movie. A log-line is usually a one-sentence "movie poster" line that captures the essence of the work.

EXAMPLE:
JAWS 2: Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water.

If your WIP is especially funny, use that. Otherwise, you can just make up something, like the hook for a query opening.

I think I have an internet stalker. They follow me around and give me one vote when I enter something like this.
