Synopsis Insanity

Why is it I can write a novel, but the simple act of a synopsis is KILLING ME!?!?!?!?!?!?

Seriously?

I am having a heck of a time condensing the story down to a pitch.  Because that is what the synopsis is. A sales pitch.

There are so many details that I get lost in this fabulous forest I’ve created.  The scary thing is that I’ve dreamed the synopsis, only to wake up to write it down and….

Nothing.

Now, that is frustrating.  I’m really starting to stress out about this.  I’ve read all the articles about writing a good synopsis.  I’ve gone out to the blogs of the agents I’m looking at to see what they are expecting.  No two people really say the same thing.

With a hope and a prayer, I’m doing my best to create a synopsis that will summarize, engage and lure and agent into my web.
