Writing a synopsis for a dirty story might not sound difficult, but crafting the perfect little teaser has never come easy to me. Optimally, as synopsis should be fifty-words that encapsulate almost the entire piece while leaving out just enough to intrigue a reader. Getting this right is a task I’ve always found challenging. Oddly enough, forcing myself to write a synopsis before a story’s finished often helps me to figure out what the hell I’m ‘actually’ doing.
A weird way to work…I know, but often it helps.
So I’m going to keep a working draft here until I’m happy with it. Also, seeing as I’m doing that, I might as well keep a log of what’s done and what’s not. Why would I post such things on my blog? Mostly because I can.
However, I do have practical reasons as well.
The biggest obstacle to churning out this dirty little book is the number of ‘straight’ projects I’ve got cooking. Work on this little novella keeps slipping through the cracks. Knowing the progress log is here will bug me to squeeze writing in where I can until it’s finished.
Anyway, I’m sure many readers have no interest in following the process. Those who do can check back as they please.
