Today, I finished my one page synopsis. Turning your book into such a small description is really hard. To do this, I wrote a paragraph about the beginning of the book and a paragraph about the end of the book. After that, I wrote about the characters, their wants and obstacles. I spent the left over paragraphs explaining key plot points.
It was brisk, to the point and packed with information. I'm afraid, if someone read it to fast, that they may not understand it.
Keep your fingers crossed that I did this right. I've read a thousand different ways to write a synopsis, none of them like the other. The basic principle seems to be: Sum up your story without getting over-descriptive.
I have beta readers reading my novel right now. Keep in touch!
