Tonight, I am going to start writing my synopsis. I want it to be ready to go in case it must be part of the query package, or in case an agent asks for it. I found an excellent article at Forward Motion for Writers (http://www.fmwriters.com/), at their ezine Vision. It's a free site and contains articles for writers. Their magazine Vision is apparently going into their tenth year. The article on how to write a synopsis is clear.

Has anyone participated there?

Here's another site with lots of links on writing a synopsis.

Forward Motion was my first online writing community. I'm still a regular in their chat rooms, but I've come to prefer AW's forums to theirs. I know of a few other people here who are also on FM - I met a couple of them at the London meet up. :D
Vision's pretty good too, though I must admit I haven't read it for a while.

Hi Jimmy:

I became very interested in their articles. Very informative.

Thanks for sharing the links Susan. Synopsis writing is one of the hardest parts of writing and subbing.

You are very welcome, Artemis. It is difficult.

I hang around the Forward Motion chatroom quite regularly, though I prefer the forums here. FM was the first place I found when I got serious about publishing and I will always love and support it in one form or another. =)
