Here's a stupid problem. I've written this book. It's a paranormal suspense. I love it. I can't write a coherent synopsis of it. CAN NOT DO IT.
Every time I try it comes out in truly strange fashion. Sometimes I sound like someone else trying to write in Gail Faulkner's voice. Those times stump me. Am I channeling an evil sister or something. I do have a sister and she's published, she's not evil so it can't be her. BTW- she doesn't write erotica, or even romance. Sometimes it sounds like a romantic romp...which it is NOT. It's even sounded like History of Eastern Europe 101. Yeah, it's not that either.
I'm developing a mental block. Not really a block, sorta a "boogy man" image of writing this outline. Guess that is a block. Part of the reason I was so frustrated I wrote an entirely different book in a month was this stupid outline.
I wonder if it's acceptable to have someone else write the outline of a book one submits to an agent? I mean, um...is that lying? The facts are all the same, just written by someone who doesn't sound like a candidate for the "special" school of writing. The one where the person who DIDN'T eat their crayons last night gets a star.
okay....back to the beast, I mean book.
