Writing a synopsis is hard...but so is writing a novel if you've never done it before, or fixing a PC. So here's a little game for us all so we can learn how to write synopses.
1 - Take any book off your shelf that you've read, whether it is fiction or non-fiction.
2 - Sum it up in one sentence.
3 - Sum it up in one paragraph.
4 - Sum it up in two paragraphs.
5 - Repeat every day with a different book.

Happy synopsis writing!
