The normal threads should stay relatively on topic. But this is not a normal thread so we pretty much talk about everything under the sun.

There are "hangout" threads on many sub-forums. The sci-fi forum, for one thing, has a hangout thread.

In hangout threads, we can do this!

Synopsis are fun when you are TALKING to someone. Less fun when writing them.

Quick synopsis method: Setup, one sentence. Inciting incident, one sentence. Act one climax, one sentence. Act two climax, one sentence. Black moment, one sentence. Climax, one sentence, Resolution, one sentence. Now rewrite to join up the dots. No problem.

This. So this.

I'm somewhat done with the second draft of my WIP, and I really don't think I improved it at all. I probably made it worse, in fact.

Ah, well.

But Para, erm, how does one like synopses?

ETA: Following Zoom's advice, here's something funny to share.

I was thirteen when I joined, don't worry! I'm almost sixteen, now. A little over a month 'till my birthday. Nice to meet you, Snow!

I write many genres... the only thing all my books have in common is that there is always a bit of murder involved.

*sheepish glance at everyone who's read MAAH* okay, a LOT of murder.
