On triumphing over evil

I know I’ve got a couple of friends working on these right now, and that they are generally dreaded and universally un-fun to write, so I thought I’d share a useful link from agent Susie Townsend’s blog.

Click on over for tips on how to defeat the evil that is the synopsis.  She offers both general advice – maintaining tension and a sense of conflict, infusing the synopsis with narrative voice, etc. – but also gives some specific examples to clarify her points.  Helpful stuff.

Anybody have other nifty links for help with synopses?  If so, please share them in the comments!
