Synopsis Hell......

It seems like just when you think there's a light at the end of the tunnel something gets pushed in the way to block it out. The thing blocking my all knowning light is my synosis for my book Taken By Storm.

I finally typed THE END a few days ago and I saw so happy that I took a few days off just to enjoy doing that for the second time for one of my books. Then all of it went down hill when I realized I had to do a Synopsis for my book.

I can't believe how hard doing this is. I thought I had problems with my first Synposis well this second one is killing me more than the first.

It's so hard to pick out the best parts of the book break them down and write about them to draw an editor's attention. Like what should you use...what shouldn't you use.

It just goes on and on. However, it one the things a writer has to do, but it's killing me.

Am I the only one who hates the S-word? Please tell me I'm not.

i dont like writing synopsis either

its like you just want to send pubs a note saying--just read the damn thing the story is there!

the best advice i can give is where i read once to just act like your explaining the story to a friend
--just a little polished

I'm so glad that I'm not the only one.

Thanks for the advice.
