Approaching THE END

Yep -- there's not too much more to write on TWW, but, in case you've noticed that the word count isn't progressing much, there is a reason.

THE SYNOPSIS.

NOW I know why people dread it so. How in the world do you know what to leave in and what to take out to get a 30K document down to 1900 words????

I've taken my best shot at it and am firing it out to my Partners in Crime critique group tonight. We'll see what they say. . . then, tomorrow, it's back to finishing up the first draft.

Do they critique it right then, or do you have to wait to hear back?

We wait to hear back as we only meet once a month. I'm very interested to find out what our fearless leader has to say, as DL Browne is the only novel-length published author we have in the group and she should have some really good input.

I'd love to hear what DL Browne and everyone else says.
