30 Days of Fic: 16 & 17

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

Ugh, summaries are the worst. I mean, as a reader I like having good ones so I know what to expect out of a fic, but as a writer they are awful. I have such a hard time coming up with ones that don't sound stupid or overly vague or boring. Most of the time I just copy a line or two from the fic that I think sums everything up pretty well or that I think will intrigue readers.

17 – Titles – Are they the bane of your existence, or the easiest part of the fic? Also, if you do chaptered fic, do you give each chapter a title, or not?

Titles are also the worst. Same with summaries, I usually take a word or short phrase that's important in the fic or sums things up to use as the title. I've used related song lyrics at least once, but I don't generally have a specific song in mind to connect to a fic so that usually doesn't work. I've never given chapters titles bc dang, I have a hard enough time just coming up with one title for everything!
