Does the thought of writing a synopsis give you hives? Would you rather have a root canal? There is still time to sign up for my online workshop, “The Synopsis Queen Tells All,” hosted by the Colorado Romance Writers.
THE SYNOPSIS QUEEN TELLS ALL
Nov. 1-26, 2010
$25 ($20 if you are a chapter member)
http://www.coloradoromancewriters.org/onlineworkshops.html (Scroll down to the very bottom of the page to see the workshop description; instructions for signing up are at the top of the page)
In this workshop, I will show you how to not only make the process (almost) painless, but to use the synopsis as a writing tool to make sure your book is as strong as it can be.
I will illustrate how to break down the synopsis-writing process into a foolproof formula that will have maximum impact for minimum words. Also discussed will be how to infuse the synopsis narrative with a lively style so that it’s entertaining rather than dry as dust and gives the reader a taste of the author’s voice.
An actual selling synopsis with the parts labeled is included as a hand-out.
I’ve sold many books on synopsis alone. If you can write a good one, it’s a great time saver and career accelerator.
I will be critiquing actual students’ synopses at the end of the class. If it’s a small class I’ll do everyone’s; if it’s larger, I’ll do some type of random drawing to determine whose synopses get critiqued. I hope you’ll join me!
