This Is My Brain


This is my brain exploding.

I’m trying to get a synopsis finished today.

Will “they had sex, killed the bad guys, and lived happily ever after” work? No?

:horror movie scream:

Pray for me.

Heads up, in case any of you are interested, Miss-Snark-the-anonymous-agent will read the first 300 words of your book and provide snarky feedback if you send it to her TODAY, 8/28. Could be fun! Or just incredibly frightening! But why not? 😎


  1. Margery Scott says:

    Good luck with the synopsis. I think I’ll pass on the feedback from Miss Snark.:thumbsdown: My ego is fragile enough.

  2. kacey says:

    I SWEAR, there ought to be a law against synopsis writing!! :fryingpan: Good luck with it! (better you than me… :mrgreen: )

  3. Katie says:

    Enjoy!!! Or at least, get done.:wall:

  4. Mechele Armstrong says:

    Good luck on the synopsis.

  5. Mary says:

    Like I need any more snarks in my life!
    Good luck with the writing.

  6. Carol says:

    Good Luck! I’m sure it will be good!:yes:

  7. Caro says:

    Similar to yours, I once saw someone bewail the fact they couldn’t just say, “They meet, stuff happens, they live happily ever after.”

    I hate synopsis writing with a passion and frequently use the words “suck,” “dead” and “toads” to describe mine. :wall:

  8. Michelle says:

    Good luck with the synopsis! Crush it into submission (pun intended). 🙂

  9. MartyK says:

    Best of luck with that–I’m eyeballing one of my own from a great distance. Any tips?

  10. Teresa says:

    I wish my brain was working. I’ve been trying for hours to get something accomplished and so far. . . . NADA.

    Good luck with your synposis!!:whip:

  11. Mik says:

    OoOooOO.. I suck at synopses. Good luck! I like your idea one though. Why can’t we write a two sentence synsopsis? hehe

  12. Steph T. says:

    See, that synopsis works perfectly for me. I’d consider it done and call it a day…:thumbsup:

  13. Jill says:

    I’d rather have a root canal without drugs than write a synopsis.

  14. Melissa Mc says:

    I feel your pain! Good luck!

  15. Rene says:

    I believe synopsis writing is a direct product of the ninth circle of Hell. I’m sure if you re-read Dante’s Inferno, it’s there.

    I let Miss Snark rip on my query letter. I think I got a “not bad” from her snarkiness, so I think I will pass on further criticism.

  16. Estella Kissell says:

    What’s wrong with the few words you wrote:footinmouth:

  17. Robyn says:

    May the words for the synopsis just flow
    from your brain to the typewriter. Then you can enjoy the rest of the day.:lol:

  18. Peggie says:

    God Bless Suzanne and her synopsis.
    Don’t know how far that’ll get you but I gave it a shot!

  19. Amy K. says:

    Good luck with the synopsis. Afterward, why don’t you pluck all your arm hairs out to celebrate?

  20. Carol Burnside says:

    I feel your pain, too. I just finished a Synopsis of my own. Ugh!

  21. Gladys Paradowski says:

    The hurricane is effecting our weather. We got 2-3/4 inches of rain last night and more today. I am trying to get things done on the computer before the weather gets worse.

  22. Toni Anderson says:

    good luck Suzanne– does anyone know who Mizz Snark is??

  23. Peggy says:

    Good luck, Suzanne! I’m sure you’ll write an awesome synopsis.

  24. ruby55 says:

    Good luck, Suzanne.

    I hated writing synopses as well and that was for books I read, not wrote.

    I’ll pray everything goes AOK.:thumbsup:

    We don’t need snarky people.

    Just got a laugh out of the quote from “So I Married an Axe Murderer”. Was that there before?:wave:

  25. Suzanne says:

    Sigrun, the movie quotes vary every time you hit my site–I have a random quote thing set up so that it changes all the time for fun! I love movie quotes.:guitar:
