Writing a synopsis need not be a torment. Let USA Today best-selling author Margaret Moore take the worry away by illustrating what's necessary, what's not, what to do and what to avoid when it comes to writing a synopsis.

an appreciation for what is necessary in a synopsis, and what's not

some mistakes to avoid

some tips to make writing a synopsis easier

as well as
