I’m reading the latest Blake Snyder book, Save the Cat! Strikes Back, my winnings from the “Save the Cat! Last Logline of 2009!” honorable mention. And I got a flash of inspiration!
Here’s my rough pitch:
Soul Survivor: A loner teen can see dead people, but can he save them, too? Griffin Templeton faces the remainder of his senior year in a new town with a broken past in tow. When he manages to make a friend, no wonder it’s with a dead guy. If Griffin can’t come to terms with his gifts, he’ll join the clan of lost souls attached to a demonic presence.
Think Lost Boys meets Boys Don’t Cry meets Sixth Sense.
I’m halfway through my 40 beats already!
SWEET! No stealing!
