    I'm great!

    Now that I finally decided on a college to go to, I just have to sit back and wait for graduation day. How are you?

    With a synopsis for a dual-POV novel, would it be better to focus on only one POV or both?

    I'd be inclined to stick with the same one viewpoint for both the query and synopsis. Simple and clear. That's what I did for my dual-viewpoint urban fantasy. Although nobody is remotely interested in the urban fantasy, so I'd take my advice with a pinch of salt. I am truly a query genius.

    Sorry, I'm going to focus on hitting these deadlines. If you post it on the thread, maybe someone will have a spare moment.

    Yikes. I feel old. It's nearly a year since I left university with my second degree, and you haven't even started yet.
