All right, the faire is over for the season, I’ve had a week off to relax and recharge, so now it’s time to get back at it.
I’m returning to Bostonia to give the manuscript a (hopefully) final polish before sending it to the agent who, alas, ultimately rejected Action Figures. The big hurdle, of all things, is writing a damn synopsis, a process I HATE because cramming a 120,000-word novel down to a one-page overview forces me to strip out everything that makes the story good…you know, pesky little things like theme, characterization, dialog, subplots, etc.
My wife’s at a wedding Saturday so I plan to spend the day cranking away on the synopsis. I’d like to have it done by the end of the day, but we’ll see how the Muses are treating me.
