I attended an online chat the other day with an author who writes for Medallion Press. She said such wonderful things about them, and encouraged me to submit my ms to them. Since she's the second Medallion author who's said this, I figured I'd give it a shot.
What was I thinking?
Medallion doesn't just want a synopsis, they want a chapter-by-chapter synopsis of the story. That's what I'm trying to do now. And it's driving me insane. And I, in turn, am probably driving my CPs insane. I'm sure they're getting tired of receiving little update e-mails from me: "Just wrote the kiss!" "ACK! Seven pages in and so-and-so isn't dead yet!" "Writing the seduction." "Ten pages and still no accident!"
I can picture my CPs, sitting in front of their computer screens, snickering behind their hands. "Is she insane? What made her think she could do this?"
OK. That's not fair. Actually, my CPs are very helpful. Very supportive. They even tell me I don't need to lose weight. (A little white lie never hurts, right?)
So, I'll go back to my own little hell, work on that synopsis, pull my hair out (good thing I have plenty to spare!), and pray for the best.
