Decoding the Novel Synopsis

C.B. Wentworth has posted an amazing blog titled “Decoding the Novel Synopsis”. I urge all of you to visit her site and read it.  All of a sudden it clicked in my head what I’ve been doing wrong.  I’ve spent the last hour working on my synopsis and it’s flowing like mad.  I know I’ll have to tidy it up, replace boring words and phrases with active, tension-filled text, but the draft is coming together so fast.

Thank you C.B.!  Amazing.

  1. As a confirmed Synopsiphobic, any help I get is much appreciated, Jenny.

    I’ve missed so many of your posts! Why? I think I signed up using RSS feed versus email.

    Lest you think I didn’t appreciate the 11 contest, I intend to answer and post those questions/answers today. Look for a tweet and pingback. They’re headed your way soon.


    1. I don’t know what it was about this that kicked my brain into hyperdrive. I knew all of the stuff before. Maybe it was the visual. Hope it works for you.
