Passing Thought on the Synopsis

You know, I go through a lot of emotional ups and downs when I write a novel. Some days I'm convinced I'm the most brilliant author who ever set pen to paper. Other days, I'm a washed-up hack who should have his fingers broken to prevent me from inflicting this garbage on the world.

It's all part of the process of creating a novel, and I've gotten used to it.

However, over the past two weeks, I've written two synopses. Remember, a synopsis is a highly condensed version of a novel.

Suffice it to say, I'm feeling a bit of emotional burnout, and I want a cookie.

Happily, I think I'm done, and if all goes well, tomorrow I'll be mailing all of this junk to my agent (who has glanced at both synopses by e-mail, and approves).
