Image result for copywriter club This one is a late addition to the mix. The Copywriter Club is looking for a new tagline for their Facebook group. Now, the big challenge here is, dozens of people have already posted some great lines. So I had to tinker outside a crowded sandbox. Luckily, there are a lot of themes. The group of 3,000+ writers is tight. There’s phenomenal talent in there and the big-hearted community vibe is to be commended. I can’t think of another group this supportive. If you want to learn about writing or offer advice, (and you’re not a troll), you should definitely check it out. Oh, and there are some big personalities in there. Wickedly funny, snarky, motherly… You name it, they’ve got it. It’s one big, dysfunctional family. The list is somewhat repetitive as I worked through variations of each line. Favorites in bold.

Overall: Not bad. I liked a quite a few of these. It was difficult not to tread any on the already-contributed ideas, and there may be a few contenders in here. Under normal circumstances, I’d do a lot more editing. But no excuses. Lessons: There was a very cool moment when I realized I could refer to a previous post and tweak some of the lines. This is the first time I’ve been able to repurpose a list, and essentially swipe my own copy. That’s going to be huge for future projects.

  • The previous post about Bild came in handy here. As well as my tagline post for Amy Lipner 
  • Made it about 65 lines before touching the formulas. I didn’t use them much at all. Just needed a few to keep the flow going.
  • I tried to have fun with this one. Rum helped.
  • I wish I had more time away from this one to view it with fresh eyes and strengthen it. I say that with all of them though.
