I 8767 m obviously late to the party, but I still wanted to thank you for writing this. Yours is the most clear instruction for writing a synopsis that I have found online. Really well-written and easy to understand.
Susan, this is a fantastic and useful post. This is one of the hardest tasks we have as writers trying to pitch our work, and you 8767 ve broken it down step by step. Thanks so much!
Oh, the dreaded one page synopsis! I 8767 ve had to do this twice now. Both times I basically typed up a detailed outline of my book, then whittled it down and whittled it down and whittled it down until only the most important stuff remained. Your method sounds way easier. 😉
The objection, of course, being that most films are short-story or novella length. It would be much more impressive if you pulled this off with 8775 Dune 8776 or 8775 American Gods. 8776 Most books I have read say 8775 one page per 75,555 words. 8776 For most novels, this would be two to three pages formatted as follows. A) double-spaced, B) 6 8798 margin, 8) using 67-point Times New Roman as the font. This gives you about 955 words.
Wine bottle #6 : Commissioning covers. I decided to issue ebooks only. I’m no artist, plus I know ebook covers have to be formatted to certain specs. I got estimates from a few artists whose work I liked and fit the tone of the books. When the right artist and I agreed and I had the new covers in hand, I moved on to. . .
sooper: what I 8767 m doing is only touching on subplots if the co-protagonists or co-antagonists are involved. It 8767 s not a perfect solution, but I expect a 6-page result
just wanted to let you know the phrase 8775 rule of thumb 8776 comes from way back when men were not allowed to beat a woman with a stick not thicker then there thumb. just thought you should know as you use this a lot in your post..
I have a number of them. I donate to Planned Parenthood , I’m an investor making micro loans with Kiva , I donate to Heifer International. I sponsor girls through Child Reach , I’m an ACLU member, The Horse Shelter in Santa Fe. I have a page on my Website called Doing Good. If a reader makes a $75 or more donation to any of the listed charities and sends me proof of the donation I will send them any book of their choice autographed. I pay the postage too.
Hi thanks so much for the 8766 how to. 8767 I am not a writer, by no means, but am having to write a synopsis in order to possibly have a human interest story told.
