Right now, I am working on the synopsis for Nemesis, and I hate it. It’s annoying. I think I’m summarizing too much. Honestly, I have written three paragraphs on the first five and a half pages. Too much, right? It seems that way to me. I suppose I’ll continue this way because I can always go back and revise it. That doesn’t make it any less annoying, though. I think what’s making it so difficult is that the book is written in first person present tense, and the synopsis is more like third person present tense. It’s not like changing the POV for dialogue tags and descriptions. Quite different, actually.

And I’m getting distracted by various things, like Twitter and other blogs.

Oh shit, I’m supposed to write an epitaph for Heather’s sinus obstruction! Um, yeah, gonna go give that a shot. Laters.

  1. Nice! I would suggest checking out CJ's blog for some ideas on synopsis. I suck at them too. It would be nice if someone else could just summarize it for us. I'm glad you are working on it, because this is the book, my friend. This is the one.
