Have you ever been stumped by the dreaded request for a 1 page synopsis?

The first time I had to write a synopsis, it ended up being a long back cover blurb. Too much tease. The absolute wrong thing to do, but I didn't know that until after a few lovely rejections, and a few wonderful classes.

Now, I can write a pretty good 5-7 page synopsis, but unless I'm writing a synopsis for a short story, writing the 1-2 pager still takes a bit of time, and a number of rewrites.

Margaret West has dropped by Romancing the Pen to discuss shortcuts to writing a strong synopsis.
