    Hi all,
    I have finished my synopsis, around 480 words, hope it’s not too short. Only outline of the story is disclosed - descriptions were rather general with no details. Is it necessary to give a bit more details into the story? Eg. They went on spellbinding sea adventures.

    Any advice is very much appreciated. Many Thanks.

    Hello all, for those still struggling with this, do see our advice page here:

    I brief:

    A synopsis is simply a clear, factual summary of your novel's storyline.
    A synopsis is typically 500-800 words. Unless an agent specifically requires a much longer synopsis, your summary should not run to more than 1000 words
    A synopsis does not have to fit on a single page.
    A synopsis is not the same as a blurb for the back of a book and the text should not be 'salesy'.

    I've posted a synopsis that started off around 4 pages! I've edited it down but I think it isn't flowing well and I'm not sure if the storyline comes across properly. Any help would be very welcome
