  4. Love the word lists Kathy.

    Now what I need is, “How to Write a Show Stopping Synopsis for Your First Novel”.
    There’s so much out there—any favorite ideas?

      I hope you signed up for Anita Nolan’s workshop on Synopsis at the conference. I am sure it is going to be terrific. I plan on going. You should be very proud of all you have accomplished in less than a year.
