1/17/2018 → Wednesday Skype & Write
This week, we spent our Skype session working on synopses. Specifically, we decided on a way to attack the various synopses we need to do in order to create a submission package. We are going to begin with an overall series synopsis, then do the first trilogy synopsis, then concentrate on the first three individual books.
After we set out our schedule, we sat down and began work on the series synopsis. This encompasses all thirteen planned books, concentrating on the main story arc that revolves around the epidemic that has gripped the school, as opposed to the relationships and romances of the individual books.
One of the things that came from our synopsis-writing was that we finally got our website blurb for the series. The site has been updated here.
We haven’t yet decided if we’ll put the series synopsis on the site, so it isn’t up at this point.
That said – yes, we did write the synopsis! And yes, we are quite pleased with our work! We actually wrote it in tandem – as in, we had a shared document open and we all made suggestions, edits, notes, and wrote bits in real-time, as we discussed what we wanted to accomplish. It’s crisp and clear, and very streamlined. It’s a very good start to putting together our pitching materials.
