Synopsis

Working on the ONE LIFE synopsis. What is a synopsis? A brief outline or general view, as of a subject or written work; an abstract or a summary.

I was super impressed by US snowboarder, Shaun White, last night during the men's half-pipe competition. The red-head stole the show! No one could come close to challenging for the gold. There have been no further gold medals for Canada...yet. :-)

Working

The Vancouver Winter Olympics are on. It is amusing to work with, "Sweeep! Sweeep! Sweep!" being shouted in the background.

I'm feeling very reflective about my writing lately. I've had to learn A LOT in the last year...both good and bad. I wish my first manuscript had a stronger opening. Oh well, you live and learn.

ONE LIFE

Thinking out loud about ONE LIFE.

To make up for lost time, sixteen-year-old, Teddy (Theodora) Owens is writing down everything that has happened since she discovered her ability to save one person from death. Her story begins two months before she makes an unbreakable promise to a handsome and arrogant young man she barely knows. For better...or for worse...this promise will change her life forever.

Certainly this concept will evolve, but feeling good about it.
