Hello Miss Snark (and Killer Yapp)
First off all I shall state that I am a recent reader of the blog and I think it is really not only helpful resource but a brilliant read as well. I am sure I can state on behalf of myself at least that I think its fantastic that you do this blog in your own time whilst working through your day job to. So THANK YOU!
Anyhow there was a point to this email and at this point I shall pause to get prepared for a hit or several with the clue gun. A much needed one at that.
I am currently working on a second draft of a novel that has two narrators whom break the fourth wall and talk directly to the reader. My attempt at a novel also currently uses a lot of characters reminiscing of events related to the stories present plot (for instance at one point character A reveals that character B she is pregnant. That in turn causes character B to reflect on her own child she had to put up for adoption in her childhood and reveal that to character A) . If and (hopefully) when I am ready to submit queries to agents slush piles how would it be best to include these events in a synopsis? The date order that the events happened or the order that events get revealed in the story? Or is that just horridly lazy writing and should just be scrapped?
I am curious to know your thoughts on This
Well I'm just tickled to get your email. Words however fail me. If any of the Snarklings would care to offer up some advice, feel free.
