How the heck do I write a synopsis!?

Last night I spent pretty much….all night working on my synopsis. It was one of those nights where I knew I wouldn’t be able to get it perfect but I needed to get it done. This is a great exercise even if it doesn’t get me the agent.

I started with a 1,300 word synopsis and wanted to cry thinking, “How am I going to get this down to 700 words?!” It was 10pm, I had to wake up at 7am. I had 10 hours to complete this. Ha! That’s hilarious, because I am one of those that needs SLEEP!

By 1 am I was at 698 words. I couldn’t believe it. I have a synopsis. Is this the final synopsis, no probably not. But I am making progress and that is what counts right now. Tomorrow I am going to be sending my manuscript and synopsis to the agent and will cross my fingers that I will hear back from her.

Maybe I will, maybe I won’t. Either way, this has been a very exciting moment in my my writing life. One I will never forget, one that will keep me going!

Now….perhaps I should stop making changes to the edit. Hehehe….
