As you know, I've been querying agents since March. As you also know, I've had requests, but not many. However, I have put together an impressive collection of rejections. (43 and counting.)
Last week, I decided to finally get around to querying one of the agents I met at the conference I attended in the spring. I've been kind of intimidated by her, but I thought Why not? Why not just get one more rejection? They hardly even sting anymore. (Which is a lie, by the way.)
Imagine my surprise and delight when today -- only a few days after sending the query plus first three pages -- I received a request for the first five chapters along with a complete synopsis to "include the full plot of the book including the conclusion"!
Now, imagine my thought process as I remembered that I have only a one-page synopsis completed.
Ugh. I guess I know what I'm going to be working on tomorrow.
It's been a long, loooong time since I've written a longer-than-one-page synopsis. Over three years, I think. Has anyone put together a good one that you'd be willing to let me read to get my head in the right place for this task? Pretty please? I will so appreciate it!
