Oh God, it's back!

The synopsis.

The blankety-blank, you know what, fill-in-the-space-here-with-whatever-word-you'd-like, synopsis.

We all hate it-and rightfully so-as it sucks. However, I was under the misapprehension that as soon as I got an agent, my synopsizing days would be over. Yeah, turns out that was stupid of me. Had I have thought about it, I would have realized that editors, reviewers, and probably countless others would also want a synop, but I didn't think about it, and now, well, I dont' have a choice.

With any luck, it won't be a horribly long process as I have a synopsis already done, it's just not as honed and polished as it needs to be. But hey, at least I have something to work with.

On top of that, my left shift key broke this week and now only works half the time. How annoying is that! I have to go back and re-capitalize everything! Sorry if I missed any above, but i think i got them all. BAH! See! I'm leaving those two to show you what I mean. Annoying!

O-well, guess I'd better get started...

PS. - Any of my fellow Query Trackers noticed that that the little rejection face has been changed? It went from pissed off 'Grrr' face to a sad 'Aww' face. I don't know about you, but I think the 'Grrr' face was better, or at least more appropriate. :)


  1. Haha! Yes, I noticed that on QT ;o) I'm with you--I like the pissed off faces better than the "woe is me" face :)

    Good luck with the synopsis!

  2. Oh God, so it never ends? I'm in the synopsis bog right now and was hoping to be climbing out soon. Guess that's a pipe dream.

  3. Yea, the sneer face was much better. Made me feel like I was actually doing something, you know kind of like the virtual finger. LOL.

  4. Hi Marian! I tagged you for a writing meme (no pressure to participate if you don't want to). Stop by my blog and check it out.
