Quick tip for how to write a synopsis

This is a really quick, easy way to write your synopsis. This is especially easy if you only need to write a chapter-by-chapter synopsis, which calls for only a few sentences for each chapter.

Go through your manuscript and write one sentence for each scene. If the scene is long, write a couple sentences.

Any significant spiritual or internal conflicts should be included, as well as major plot points, red herrings, symbolism, etc.

That’s it. Go through your entire manuscript. This should give you a synopsis of about 6-10 pages single-spaced.

From here, you cut your synopsis down to whatever length it needs to be.
