I’m so amazed at how far this Workshop has come since it started back in January. We started with 16 Participants and now we are here, almost at the end, and we have 7 left! Juggling life and work can be hard especially when you are trying to also “do what you love” which is why it’s always ideal to make your work be what you love. However, we are not all so fortunate (yet…) so in the meantime we find whatever minutes we can throughout the day to write and explore and create. The 8 (including myself) synopsis you are about to read were all created in a short amount of time (some could argue too short) and before the actual short story has been written (another valid argument…) so keep this in mind when offering up your feedback.
Be kind but most of all be constructive! I’m sure and I know everyone who has been a part of this Workshop has benefited from not only the exercise of writing but the feedback they’ve gotten and implemented along the way.
Each synopsis was to be no more than one page in length, which, if formatted correctly (double-spaced, 12pt font, Times New Roman) would amount to about 250 words. In an effort to keep formatting true to the sender I will be posting each submission in .pdf form below:
Nacho (Mystery)Pt 4 - Synopsis - Nacho
BlueLikeATardis (Tragedy)Pt 4 - Synopsis - BlueLikeaTardis
Like Round Three, this round is just as extensive if not more so. There will be Four Rounds with two synopses in each post. When reading them think about the following questions when giving your feedback:
- Is this formatted correctly and the right length?
- Is there too much information given? How can this synopsis be scaled back? What can be cut?
- Can you picture the story? Understand the Main Characters goal? Is the Antagonist present and clear?
- On a scale of 1 – 10 how excited are you to read this short story? 1 = Not Much / 10 = Wicked Excited!
