Does writing the synopsis make you cringe? Take a breath...Here are the basics:

Synopsis - The Bones of The Beast:

· Contact information upper left top of first page

· Genre, length and word count on top right

· Do not number the first page

· Insert a header for subsequent pages: “Synopsis/Name/TITLE

· Center title in all caps

· Begin synopsis text 4 lines below title

· Use all caps the first time a character is introduced

· Double space all text

· Establish a good hook

· Introduce key characters and set up of conflict

· Justify left margin only and one inch margins

· Make it a short and exciting read

· Don’t go into detail about what happens just tell the reader what happens as concisely as possible.

· Use third person, present tense even if your novel is written in a different point of view

· Keep events in the same order as in the novel.

· You must tell the ending in your synopsis.
