The Dreaded Synopsis

Originally published at Joely Sue Burkhart. You can comment here or there.

Tonight, I had one task and one task only: conquer a synopsis for Letters.

This shouldn’t have been an unreasonable task. After all, I had a version I wrote months ago (before the revision/expansion was complete). Surely that first version couldn’t be that bad.

It was that bad.

So I tossed the whole thing out and started all over again. My undying thanks to Molly, May, and Ann for their quick and willing assistance. The package will go out tomorrow over lunch!

I’m also in the middle of gathering raw data for the Mayan uf. I ended up with a key idea that may or may not have absolutely nothing to do with the story when I actually sit down to write it, but it sounds powerful:

To save this world, she’ll have to kill the only man she ever loved.

Jaid isn’t a kick-ass heroine, so it’s not exactly obvious what that means.
