This time I’m asking more questions, getting more of a feel for my characters — but the fact is, I’m trying in three hundred words or less to nail a story that’s going to end up being about 100,000 words long. There just isn’t all that much room to go deep.

I hate writing synopses. In fact, one of these days I’m going to do a synopsis how-to for the site entitled "I Hate Writing Synopses."
