I've started proposal #2. First sentence:
"This story is an ellipses, a space between the news making moments that have shaped history – in particular those moments where belief and political power have intertwined."
Ugh! That sucks!!
You know, I walked around the Plaza for an hour yesterday, my brow all furrowed, before I finally came up with that line.
Another one for the scrap heap.
This is going to be a bitch.
It's so weird, too, because I can really feel it with this idea. I feel like I've got a good one somewhere down there in my brains. But, dude, proposals are hard to write. Think about it:
A 300-page book summarized in 12 pages. But not just summarized. No! Brought to life. Sold. Teased. And whatever other discriptive words I can't think of right now.
Not that I'm complaining... What an incredible privilege! Right?
