Intro by Jami Gold:
One thing I’ve learned about writing over the years is that there’s no “one right way” to do anything in our career. No matter how well any advice works for the advice-giver, our brains, processes, goals, priorities, obstacles, complications, and situations are all different.
I’ve tried to keep that perspective in mind as I write blog posts, give feedback as an editor, and present workshops. That’s one reason I love having guest posters who can share other techniques or approaches for our writing career beyond the insights I can offer on my own.
Sure, I already have posts about many topics on my blog, but my advice might not work for everyone. So the more perspectives and methods I can offer, the better for all of us.
If you’ve struggled with writing a synopsis, query, or Amazon book description, or if the advice you’ve seen before didn’t make sense or resonate with your processes, I hope today’s guest post filling in for me during NaNoWriMo helps. Romy Sommer is an author, editor, and writing coach, and she’s sharing her 10 step plan for writing synopses that can work for plotters, pantsers, or anyone in between.
