Another quick tip for how to write a synopsis

Randy Ingermanson has a famous (or infamous) “Snowflake” method of plotting that I use to write synopses.

Now don’t have a coronary. It’s actually very easy, and I only use a couple of the 10 steps in the Snowflake method.

I do step two (but read step one to know what he’s talking about), then step four. That’s it. I end up with a one or two page synopsis.

For a longer synopsis, I do step six, which gives me a synopsis anywhere from 4-11 pages.
