Writing Synopsis


Writing a good and attractive synopsis is part of packaging your book. It is equally important to write a gripping synopsis as it is to write a good story. A well written synopsis can attract readers toward your book. I don’t recommend writing a lengthy synopsis. Keep it short but make sure it has the essential elements.

A good synopsis should have the following:

  • Main characters of your story.
  • Setting of your book. Many writers give the setting of the book as much importance as the characters themselves.
  • Main conflict (very important)
  • Emotions associated with the main conflict. Emotion is what hooks the reader, therefore it is important to include this piece.

Don’t include subplots in your synopsis.
