So I finished DG3 yesterday. :boogie:
Now I get to write the synopsis so I can ship it off to my editor. They’re at this place an den people shoot at them an den there’s a snowmobile an den the helicopter crashes an den…
Besides paring the story down to what’s most important, the hardest thing about synopses is that they’re written in the present tense. Why? This is not a tense 95% of us or so write in and some of us trip over it constantly while crafting the synopsis, making the entire process seem more torturous than it is. Maybe it’s supposed to take us out of creative mode and into summarization mode, but I find it just puts me in an I’d rather stick myself in the leg with a fork mode.
But I shall persevere. I didn’t work this hard on the book to let it languish on my hard drive awaiting a couple pages of present tense an dens.
