Not an expert etc etc

I recently completed an incredibly useful exercise suggested by a writing/editing tutor elsewhere. (I will post the link below because credit must be given.) I found it helped me nail the ‘essence’ of my book brilliantly.

Summarise you book in 250-500 words – whatever!
Now summarise in 100 words
Now 50
Finally 25 – and there’s you’re elevator pitch. Worked for me anyway ;)
