If I mention any new book I'm working on, please check if I've done a synopsis and if I haven't nag me until I have. Getting one written quickly for the Kobo/Jeffrey Archer/Curtis Brown competition was tough. It's been received now and is being considered along with two more. Even if I don't win I'm glad I've done it as getting the plot down to one page really shows up the strengths and weaknesses and will be a great help to keep me on track as I continue writing. I intend to always do a draft synopsis at an early stage in future.
If telling a whole novel on a page sounds tough, how about doing it in a tweet? I had to for this interview (leave a comment to be in with a chance of winning an ecopy of A Year and a Day)
Here's a chance to get a professional director and have your play performed. Among the things you can write about are 'riotous mixture of something'. D'you reckon my garden would count?
