Just Thinking

Questions I ask myself as I'm working on the synopsis -

Who is she?

Where is she in her life?

What is she searching for?

How has her past shaped who she is?

What catalyst brings the hero into her life, and what is her first impression of him?

Why can't she fall in love with him?

Why must she?

Then, of course, I repeat the process for the hero.

Anyone working on a synopsis besides me?

No synopsis here, not yet. I'm working on two contracted books, one I call the good book, one I call the evil book. Guess which one has a Thanksgiving deadline?

You have plenty of time (she says with as much sincerity as she can muster).

BTW, the good books are always the ones that aren't due soon. ;0)
