Sure some people like to write a synopsis. For most writers, the task is about as appealing as jumping into a frozen lake during sub-zero weather--even though some people like that, too. How is a writer to choose among all the conflicting rules, such as a synopsis should be no longer than 3 / 5 / 8 /10 pages (would somebody please decide)? Condensing this much from a whole long novel seems impossible, right? You may be thinking, why not simply read the story? This workshop helps participants identify the elements required to put together a solid synopsis without it feeling like stuffing a king size foam mattress back into that tiny plastic bag that it arrived in. Workshop participants leave with a workbook that provides concrete reminders of the steps and the techniques that help deconstruct a story to reveal the elements that should be included in a synopsis. The class will end with participants final project writing … the not-so dreaded synopsisSharon Mignerey has always known that she wanted to be a story-teller from the time she learned in second grade that spelling words could be turned into stories. She has been a member of RMFW since 1984 and says she became an “instant success” in 1995 when, within 30 days, she sold two books and won RWA’s Golden Heart award for unpublished writers. Since then, her career has had the usual ups and downs typical for most writers, which has culminated in 11 published novels and several more under submission. She regards RMFW as her writing home and loves giving back to the organization. She is a well-known and sought after speaker on the craft of writing and motivation. She has an MFA in Writing Popular Fiction and has had articles published in the Writer Magazine.
