Question on the dreaded synopsis
Not sure if this is the right place to ask but I have a question about the dreaded synopsis 😖
I know there is no standard and different people people specify different things so I have written what I hope will be generally acceptable (the only criterion that I have for a particular submission says 1 page.) But I know some people say max 500 words and other things.
As it currently stands my synopsis is size 12 font, just under 500 words, 1.5 line spacing and exactly 1 page long.
However my gut feel is that I have smoothed over the plot ups and downs too much to meet the length requirement. Is it ok to go to single line spacing to enable more plot detail? Although that would take me over 500 words! 😵 it’s a minefield!
Any thoughts gratefully received.
Ps I have posted my synopsis in peer to peer critiques if anyone has time to read / offer thoughts on how it can be improved. Thanks very much 🤞
