Writing like a Fourth Grader

So the parties are over, along with the holidays and my vacation. I didn't meet any of my writing goals. But I did catch up on my sleep and bond with my two feline companions, so it wasn't a total waste.

I had planned to rewrite my synopsis which currently reads like a fourth grade book report. My apologies to any fourth graders reading this. Alas, I spent a lot my time revising my WIP.
I found some great articles on writing that dreaded synopsis. You can read these gems in my guest column called Footnotes over at the Guide to Literary Agents blog. Or click here.

I'm hoping to work on my synopsis this week. Wish me luck!




  1. Hello Nancy,

    Time spent bonding with cats is NEVER wasted! It may take a while before cats can spell and type well enough to have their writing considered for publication, but they are already making strong inroads into the creative arts. Take this cat, for example:

  2. I feel your pain. But I love your cats.

  3. There's nothing wrong with actually taking it easy during vacation!
