The Synopsis, and Why You Should Learn to Love It

The most technically difficult part in preparing for the agent search has been…drumroll…the synopsis. This will come as no surprise to anyone who has written one. And after all the rewrites, drafts, and teeth gnashing, I don’t even know for sure if I’ve done it “correctly” or “successfully.” (Once I do get feedback, I will share exactly what did and didn’t work.) All that said, by the end of writing the synopsis I was very glad I did, something I suspect is true for many writers. 

I’m beginning to realize that all of writing is this: you start out strong and confident and finish a trembling mess of self-doubt. So let’s begin!

What is the synopsis (and do you even need one)?
