Alright, I'm going to be brutally honest with myself. After having read through my synopsis for The Third Prince, I have only one thing to say:
No wonder Tor hasn't spoken to me!
For the past four days I have been trying so hard to write a more enticing, exciting synopsis. You know, the sort of synopsis that adequately reflects my book and my writing style, that covers everything the book is about. I've been failing miserably!
Why is writing a synopsis so bloody difficult?! ARGH!
Editors out there, I promise you that my writing is far better than my synopsis. I swears it! (You'd have to read that last sentence with Gollum in mind for it to make sense.)
I am sooooooooo frustrated right now! I repeat: ARGH!
There are so many sites out there that help with writing a synopsis.... But they all say different things!
Double space it. No, single space it. 1 page for every 35 pages of story. No, that's waaay too long. Put a title. Don't put the title, editors will change it anyway. Add dialogue. Don't add dialogue. Quote. No, don't. ARGH!
I'm so lost and turned around right now, I don't know which way is up any more. Here are some of the links to the sites I read in trying to research this ludicrous synopsis thing:
Kill me now please. Slowly if you want. Just don't make me write this damned synopsis!
I know the story. I know the characters. I know the world. I can write four complete books in under two years. WHY CAN I NOT WRITE A TWO PAGE SUMMARY?
