I've been a long time coming to this place. Dude has been written for nearly 2 years now. I edited it this spring. It's ready to go, provided my cps don't say it sucks. Which they won't. Because it doesn't suck. It might be a little rough around the edges (God, I hope not too rough) but it doesn't suck.
For the first time since I began writing, I'm serious about submitting. I know people who have come to this place much sooner than I. They wrote, they submitted and were either rejected or they've sold several times already. Not me. I was too busy faffing about.
But writing the synopsis presents some issues for me. Are my characters fully developed? Have I shown their conflict? Does their attraction make sense? Am I a complete screw-up?
I won't know until I submit, I suppose. So for the rest of the week, y'all will have to deal with me being more manic and neurotic than usual. I wish you luck.
Good luck, you can do it!
For me, writing a synopsis is far more painful than an entire 450 page manuscript. So sympathies.
And good luck. You are way talented, and I'm sure, that, above all will be noticed.
Syns sux. No two ways about it. But just write it, like you're telling a friend about your story. Then go back and fine tune it. It's a bit hard to begin, but trust me it gets easier.
I have my chapter meeting tomorrow, so I'll have to beg one day's reprieve on getting the crit back to you. Yeah, I know you're soo disappointed at the delay. ::snort::
Well, just shucky darn, Jaye! *gg* That's too bad. I suppose (insert patently false heaving sigh) that I'll just have to extend my deadline to next Friday, the 19th.
Ugh. The S word. You should be beaten. But you're right - it does kind of make you see if you have all those elements that are needed, huh?
Gonna share with us where ya plan to send it out?? :)
