So I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on writing a good synopsis for agents and editors. I'm not sure of the length and how muvh detail it should include, and also how different it is from an OUTLINE.

If there is already a thread on this topic, could someone please redirect me? I'm still sort of new here...

Here's a linky (http://www.myromancestory.com/writingRomance/writeSynopsis.php) I found bookmarked.

Good luck. That's my 2nd least favorite... 1st of course being the query *sigh*

It says for Romance but I think it makes good points anyway.

One of the biggest differences between an outline and a synopsis is VOICE. If you're writing an outline for yourself to keep the plot moving, you're probably not that concerned about the writing. Make sure your voice is intact in the synopsis, or it has the potential to read very dry.
