In an attempt to distract myself from the opening three chapters of this MS (and the fact that no one knows if the 5 finalists for SYTYCW have been contacted-or when they will be contacted) I’ve decided to work on the synopsis. Again.
As I’m reading I’m struck by the heavy back story and baggage I’ve saddled my hero and heroine with. I mean, I do love deep trauma and drama, and I love reading about characters that have had to overcome obstacles. I love seeing the character at the beginning of the book then changing after his/her journey and becoming a stronger person by the end of the book.
But I’m wondering if this is a little much. Then I started thinking that maybe if I could take away a little of the load-maybe some stuff that happened in the past that isn’t integral to the overall GMC…
I’m clearly having issues with this book.
Or maybe it’s the ongoing, never-ending SYTYCW…maybe it’s messing with my head…yes, that must be it.
