I’ve been in synopsis hell the last three days. I’m not a synopsis lover to begin with, but this one has been exceptionally hard. Why? Two words.
Man. I’ve quickly realized that the world I’ve written makes absolutely no sense in synopsis form. I include one thing, then it’s like if I include that, then I really need to include this because that makes no sense without that. It’s maddening, I tell you. Maddening.
I gave up today and just posted what I had to my CP’s. I feel bad for them. It’s a mess of nonsense and I know it, but I can’t find the forest for the trees right now and without their help, I don’t think I’ll be able to. I feel like I have to put in every detail.
When you have a shifter with a special gift that directly causes the inner and outer conflict for both your characters, how in the heck do you get that across without having to take a moment to explain, well the world isn’t built so she has the same gift, yeah she’s part shifter, but you see in my world…blah, blah, blah.
So any advice?
