Things I Hate More than Anything

Summarizing my books. Whether that's one-line summaries or full synposes. Hate, hate hate.

And it's something I seriously need to get better at.

That's what I keep telling myself as I slog through.

3 comments so far. What are your thoughts?

I completely sympathize with you.

Yeah. You made it as long as you did the first time for a reason, yeah?

More generally, it's hard to distill anything to its essence without lying for lack of words. Though maybe worth it. Should I keep an eye out for future synopses?

Catrina said...

Yeah, I suck at that too. With books I'm reading as well. "What is that you're reading? Oh, well what is it about?"

"...It's complicated."

Although, I think if I flipped over a book and that was its blurb I would probably buy it on principle.
