#writetip The dreaded synopsis surprised me. We all know how hard it is to write but . . .
I discovered a hole in my plot during the process of writing the synopsis. I was having a difficult time getting the story described in under two pages of double spaced text.
Then I realized the novel wasn’t coming full circle and I couldn’t relate the ending to the beginning. Why? I didn’t close off one of the story lines. I don’t think I would have discovered this if I hadn’t written the synopsis.
My point? Maybe the synopsis is not just for your agent or publisher. Maybe it’s good for you too.
