Oh, flist. I am very tired. I managed to get my big bang ready to submit, and now I'm stuck on the damn summary, which is never going to get written, because everything I write sounds like something out of the badfic hall of fame.

For instance:

Spencer Smith’s routine never varied, day to day. Get up, go to work, go home and go to bed. He had an orderly and tidy life, and things were good.

Things were okay.

All right, things were kind of terrible, and Spencer suffered in a mental institution for it. But he made it through and now he’s back out, trying to find his place in the world again.

Life was okay. Or at least it was going to be.

Can Spencer find love after life in a mental institution? Will he succumb to the pressures of routine? Will he ever manage to shake the feeling that his life is being narrated by an old for trees woman with the sinus headache from hell?

All these questions and more will be answered if you read this story!



All right, I added the part in italics when I was starting to get punch drunk, but you get the idea. This shouldn't be more difficult than actually writing the story, and yet.

I mostly totally like that. and I'd totally read it. What about

Spencer Smith’s routine never varied, day to day. Get up, go to work, go home and go to bed. He had an orderly and tidy life, and things were good.

Things were okay.

All right, things were kind of terrible,but he did the mental institution already and survived that, so things have to get better.

Right?


IDK. Obvs I haven't read it. Is this like SPN BB in that this is trying to get someone to do "art" for you?

Yep, that's exactly what it's about. Although we have a limited amount of artists, so I'll probably get just a music mix. Which I'm totally okay with, because anything is awesome.

And I may go with that. I can't think of anything else. But I don't want to give the wrong impression, since the reason he's in the hospital is because he attempted suicide. Of course, I'll have a warning saying there's there's attempted suicide, so maybe that speaks for itself.

I AM OVERTHINKING THIS.

I KNOW, I CAN'T HELP IT.

Well, either way, I sent it, so it's done. Yay. (That's my subdued yay, because I'm nervous.)

*cuddles and eats delicious cookies*

Summaries (and titles!) are the worst. I gave up on a title, and my summary was partially written for me by [livejournal.com profile] restless_jedi
