One More Suggestion from Dakota About Writing a Synopsis

Genereally I don't post on the weekends, but I woke up this morning remembering something Dakota Banks said last week at Saturday Writers. I'm going try it to get my YA novel back on track.

It's a suggestion from Dakota that I didn't mention in my earlier post: Use the synopsis as a planning tool while writing – you’re going to need one as a marketing tool anyway.

Eureka! This hit me just as I was waking up this morning. Next week I'm going to work on the synopsis for my novel to see if that will help.

But tonight? O-S-C-A-R-S. That's what I'll be watching. I'm rooting for Sandra Bullock.

Chance of showers, high 59 degrees.


  1. When you're done will you work on mine? Pretty please with pink hearts and glitter.

  2. Hey Donna! Great idea! I'm like you. Sometimes I get inspired in a way I never expected. Let me know how it works for you! I'm sitting here watching the Oscars, while I'm blogging!
