well...I AM working on it...

...my synopsis, that is. I did start it last night! But I allowed life to get in the way. Eek! My usual excuse.

Mars just turned direct, according to the helpful email updates I receive from astrology.com, so I should "turn my plans into action!" And I am, I am.

I will not let this synopsis scare me...I will not...

And one day soon, I will write a blog post with more substance. I will. I just have so many things going on right now, it's ridiculous. Really. My "alter ego," my other blog, my Twitter accounts (here and here), my "day job" drama...oh, you know. You all have the same things going on in your lives!

Onward to the syno...and wish me well on that journey. Please!

synopsis hell...heaven...hell...

I am writing a synopsis. Now, this may not seem like earth-shaking news to you. But it's kind of a big deal to me! It's intimidating. It's time-consuming. It's fraught with possibilities both wonderful and traumatizing.

In a nutshell, though, it's pretty darn cool. Why? Because it means I am FOCUSED on my novel! For reals. And let me tell you, that's a big admission from me indeed. I have vacillated back & forth between writing dedication to writing graveyard over--well, my entire life, really. And recently, with some life-altering events (another post, another time), I've renewed my dedication to my writing, myself, and my future.

Phew. Big deal indeed!

Anyway. I'm off to complete my synopsis today. Wow! I love saying that. (Let's see if I post tomorrow that it's actually completed, of course.)

Bonus: some great links to help writing your own heavenly...hellish...whatever!...synopsis.
