The Dreaded Synopsis

30 Mar

Today was a huge step for me. After months of complaining and hating and fighting, I finally accomplished a mighty feat. I finished my synopsis.

The rough draft that is. hehehe

I had been dreading it for so long that finally i snapped and forced myself to finish it. Trust me, I would have rather given birth to quintuplets in a barn with no meds while having a root canal and a tax audit all at the same time, then write my synopsis!

At the current moment, its 12 double spaced pages long. I’ve a few friends reading it as i type this, giving me much needed suggestions to make it pop! I need to find a way to make the agencies go “HOLY CRAP WE MUST REPRESENT THIS WRITER NOW!!!” 😀 and in order to do that, I have to write an excellent synopsis.

So far… it sounds boring. I need to add flare and cut out the crap that’s not needed. I’m still stressing over it but at the same time, I feel as if a 10 ton pressure has been lifted off my chest. Once this is complete, there will be nothing stopping me from querying agencies.

I will have my writing career.  I will write a best seller. I will succeed.

I am a writer. everything else in life is just fodder for my novels.

    why not share this synopsis with us? perhaps replace all the characters with moose for copy protection purposes and comedic effect

    Clearly, not even sleeping will stop you from querying agents! LOL! Good luck!

    Because I feel that it’s so currently horrible, that no one should view it. Maybe, at some point in my life, I will post it. 😉
