Almost done with the short synopsis. Well, almost done writing it. Then I have to actually pare it down to one page. Luckily, the first draft might not go longer than a page and a quarter.
But I ask you this: is it bad that I’m really, really tempted to sneak “Aliens arrive on the farm” into the middle of a paragraph? Because I really, really want to. If I were an agent (especially one who kept up with Miss Snark) I would enjoy finding that in a synopsis. It would give me a giggle.
Of course, the problem is that there are some writers out there who actually have aliens arriving on the farm out of the blue in Chapter 14. That’s why we have synopses in the first place.
