Pecking Away

Editing is going well. I have reached the point where I can read without changing anything. Yeah! Hopefully I will complete edits in the next week or so.

Now, on to the synopsis. Boo. I had started writing one months ago, sometime last year in fact, until I realized that I needed to restructure the story. So after a major re-write, it should now be simple to do.

If anyone have any tips on writing a synopsis, they would be appreciated. How much is to much detail? What is not enough? The book is about 1500 pages, so I should probably be brief! ;-)

Have a good day, everyone!

PS Hopefully next week, I will update the chapters on this site. Right now, I have updated pages posted to Authonomy.com. Here's the link

  1. HI, LaFleur, Thanks for visiting me. Yes, synopses can be very hard to write. One page is perfect but you've got to make sure that you include an overall idea of what your story is about.

    In my view, a blurb is for the reader, but a synopsis is for the publishers - so it should be geared towards them.

    Have a look at my synopsis if that'll help. I'm not saying it's perfect, but I had advice about it from a published writer, so there may be something there.

  2. Thank Anne! I will be sure to check it out!
