Well, I have finally finished writing the synopses (2nd draft, hopefully this one doesn't suck) in all formats. I have a 1-line, a 1-paragraph, a 1-page, and an expanded version. Now I need to figure out how to write a decent cover letter, but when I do, the synopsis portion is ready.

I don't want to think about how long that took. But now that the synopsis-writing is finished, I'm allowed to buy myself some more booze. :p

I finished the latest permutation of the Evil Dreaded Synopsis today; it needs an edit, but currently stands somewhere short of 3 pages, which is not bad for me.

Of course, I also forgot to pack lunch for the day, AND forgot to drive to the Metro station today; I'm seeing HBP tonight, so it would be handy to have a car waiting when I get off the subway.

The 2-page synopsis for Book 1 is underway. Of course, it's already past 2 pages and I'm still talking about Gentiola, but then again I am also the writer who just managed to squeeze a 6-7 page version down to...10. My rationale is that the story is very...dense. That's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

For the short-term:

Write that damned 2-page synopsis for Novel 1. Haven't even started the stupid thing yet. Shit.

For the medium-term:

Figure out some safe, relatively practical craft for using all these damn fragrance oils. The problem with candles is that I bought the FOs without consideration for flashpoints, which means I have no way of knowing which ones are safe to use in products which are meant to be lit on fire.

For the long-term:

Learn needle-felting. I've asked my mom for a book on this for my next birthday, but that's in October. I want to make notebook covers to my own specifications. I suppose I could just knit up some fabric with wool yarn and shrink it in the washing machine, but needle-felting provides more control over decoration.
