I’ve said that I completed the second draft of my synopsis in my “Yay” post from Saturday. On Sunday was my monthly writers group and I got to read the synopsis to the group. It is just shy of 1500 words, so longish.
Everyone complained that the synopsis was sooo boring and clinical. They wanted to hear the voice of the chapter I had written to them once before. I’m not sure how to do that. I think I’ve got the whole chronological book report done, but I also ?think? the synopsis is like your “pitch” to an agent. Mine couldn’t sell ice cream on a hot summer day.
What to do?
Is the markety language in the cover letter? Do you somehow expose your voice in the synopsis? Somehow I’m going to push this boulder up a hill. And I’m going to like doing it!
