16 – Summaries – Do you like them or hate them? How do you come up with them, if you use them?

Generally speaking, I hate them, though from writing blurbs the past few years, I don't dread them the way I used to. These days, depending on the length of the story, I just try to come up with the one or two-sentence promo blurb that I would do for original work. The random quotes from within the story trend doesn't work for me at all, either as a reader or a writer, because ultimately it doesn't tell me what the story might be about. Ultimately I create summaries for the kind of reader I am. I'm not an all-purpose consumer, meaning I don't inhale everything I can get my hands on just because it might deal with my ship. In actuality, I'm *incredibly* picky about what I'll read, and if I can't figure out what the story is going to give me from the summary (generally speaking, I don't need/want spoilers), I'll move on.
