    Synopsis

    Discussion in 'NaNoWriMo' started by UnrealCity, Nov 7, 2013.

    I am currently writing my first novel in an attempt to win the NaNoWriMo 30 day challenge. I began writing my synopsis and wondered if a synopsis needs to be written in the same past or present tense as the story is written in? Or does it not really matter?

    Can a synopsis be written in present tense, while the story is written in the past?

    I think it's typically in 3rd PoV, present, and very active.
    Kind of like you telling a quick story to a friend as its happening.
