Why is it so hard?

Writing the synopsis and it is HARD. I have all kinds of resources and examples.

I know how to write one, I just don't want to.

2 hours later:

Written three paragraphs. Sigh.

You only have to write 2 pages double spaced for Silhouette. That's about 650 words.

Get the basics on paper:

one paragraph on her conflict. One on his. I usually think in terms of back cover copy for these.

One on their romantic conflict.

What does she need to overcome for them to be together?

What does he need to overcome?

What does she like about him?

WHat does he like about her?

What spurs them to give up their stubborn ways and let themselves love?

And then polish it.

Good luck!

LOL, when you put it like that, Cat, it doesn't seem so hard.
