Every time I try the detailed synopsis, I go way over 1000 words, so I tried an expanded 'back cover' synopsis. You know the back cover of paperbacks where they try to get you to read/buy the book? (though occasionally those lie or are wrong enough that I doubt the person writing it ever read the book) Anyway, I wrote a 'hooky' synopsis and now I'll just have to decide if I want to send the long, boring 1000 word synopsis or the short, hooky one.
When in doubt, go for the hook.
I also got a bit more work on chapter 2 done. Oy, I'm tired of going over the first chapters of the book. SO MUCH of the novel needs my attention but here I am digging and sculpting and rearranging the first hundred pages. I wonder if every writer does this or just us unpublished folks?
