This post is very timely for me. Not long ago, I was summarizing the plot of one of my stories to my husband over a plate of lasagne and veggies. In between chewing and swallowing, I laid out the plot while my husband’s eyes and interest grew. Then later that night, I sat down in front of my computer to lay out the synopsis and drew a complete blank. And when I did type something, it sounded bland. A complete contrast from the hype earlier in the evening. So to give my work justice, the tips in this post will be very helpful.
