Well, the revisions to You'll Think of Me are almost done. A few tweaks here and a few tucks there.
Now I have to do that blasted synopsis.
A friend told me that the synopsis can make or break the story. She's right. If the synopsis is poorly written or doesn't hook the editor then you might not as well have written it.
But I also know that there are those editors who skim the synopsis to see what's going on without really paying attention to the mechanics of it. They want to get to the actual piece of writing - they want the skinny and go straight to the story.
Note: you can't write a crummy synopsis and plan to get an editor who doesn't look at that part of the submission. Reality happens and most of them read the synopsis. If you have a chunk in the synopsis that doesn't show up in the story, they'll know. That might even break the deal.
So, I must get back to the synopsis. (If you can't tell, yes, I'm procrastinating.).
Toodles and wish me luck.
