Okay, not really, but that is how I’ve been feeling today as I try for the first time to properly write my synopsis for the manuscript I want to peddle. Yes, that word degrades it a little, but that is essentially what all writers are doing when they first decide to break into the wide world of publishing. What’s wonderful — and I say that sarcastically, is that all the information I’m getting about how to do all the things related to sending eg, synopses, manuscript format etc, I’m getting from what I hope are reputable sites online as there’ s no one to ask. I have no agent — need to hunt for one that will welcome me with open arms despite my lack of best-seller background and I know no one who has published internationally and can as such ensure that my ‘facts’ are indeed just that.
Despite all this, discouragement is not an option — that would just be silly wouldn’t it? So yes, I might want to give the idea of a synopsis a kick in the face, but in reality I’m still going to drag myself back to it so I don’t waste time pining when I could be being simply awesome ^^.
