Okay, I finished my novel, I finished editing it, and now I'm trying to write a synopsis, which is not going so well. Does anyone know the standard length of a synopsis? I've read anywhere from 2-20 pages. I am now on page 5, and I'm only half way through my 400+ page novel. At this rate it will end up being 10+ pages! Is that too long? Who ever thought of the idea of a synopsis is a freaking moron! How the hell am I supposed to condence 400 pages into 10, make it flow easily, and be interesting enough for an agent to request more? Ugh! I've outlined the crap out of it, and put in what I thought was necessary, and I can't seem to get it cut down any, and I still have more to go. Anyway, sorry for ranting, but I think this is ending up being more difficult than writing the novel. I've been working on it for 2 weeks now, that's really pathetic! Any encouraging thoughts? Thanks!
