In the near future, I am going to an event where I will be presenting a synopsis and a short sample of my novel to Important People. This, logically, means I will need to write a synopsis, which is what I've been doing for the last week. I have now completed a version I can read without wincing, so it's time for the inevitable blog-hashing of what I feel I've learnt from this.
And for anyone who is actually worried, my synopsis itself does not feature in this post, so there will not be any spoilers for my half-edited unpublished novel about Satan. Furthermore, if you have a scary dream which you think would serve as a good ending, absolutely post details in the comments - there is still time for me to use it. Thanks.
