You've wrote a story...now what...? You get to write a synopsis for that story. Easy, you say? Not so much, say I.
I've been sitting here trying my best to come up with a small synopsis of my little ghost story and I'm finding this harder than the actual writing of the story, itself.
Sure I know all the small plot points and character developments I've placed throughout the story but how do you give a small cliff-notes version of that without saying too much?
It's different with a novel, I'm supposing, since you can basically explain the opening chapter and then you can leave the rest of the book to do the majority of the talking for you. With a short story, though, you can't do that. I've got 60 pages, depending on your font size, that I need to condense into a small blurb. A blurb that will decide if people hit the 'buy now' button on their ereader or browser. Just a little bit of pressure.
Any ideas, out there, on the best way to go about this?
