As anyone who reads this blog knows, I struggled with writing a synopsis. You know, struggled as in fought for my life against a rogue polar bear kind of struggle. But I did it. (Yay, me!)
Now, I’d like to write the next one while the story is in progress. The story is fresh in my mind, I know where I want to go with it, and why not have that one bloody thing done?
Now, anyone who reads this blog will also know I am big on spreadsheets and templates. How can I make this thing easier? So, I created a very brief but self-explanatory template for a synopsis.
You are welcome to try this template–who knows, it may help you. Keep in mind: I write using a 4 act structure. I think the template could easily be modified for 3 act, but… just so you know.

Hey, I like this template you have created. I believe writing a synopsis is one of the only things that eludes me. Thanks for sharing this. I Can’t wait to try out your template.
