Perhaps it's because you're missing a word...

Girl turned werewolf must adjust or die. Exciting!

See? That eighth word makes all the difference.

Re: Describe your character/story in eight words

gods memories continue after mortals memories fade away

or

island of mysteries spark interest in wrong people

or

wolves versus humans on strange island of seasons

They all sounds absolutely horrible but I gave it a go. Now, I read them my story make no sense. Maybe my mind is twisted around a screw?

I gotta say, even if I'm bumping an old thread, that this is one of the most awe-inspiring, imagination-igniting, and all around great quotes I've ever read.

Props man! Are you actually writing something? Cause I'd love to read it.

Alrighty:

Our hero: Nice chap, bit of a twit, starship captain.

Re: Describe your character/story in eight words

well let's try again with the new idea...

naive girl joins misleading quest - in too deep.....

characters?

wannabe storyteller, bright, wilful, led into dangerous plot
oath bound, obsessed soldier, driven by ancient tragedy
strong, silent, perfect prince, seeks to avenge kingdom
cold, mysterious warlock, murderous legend, charmed by lookalike
