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.
Oh, and I’m using the space to keep running word counts and updates on project ideas and goals.
The biggest obstacle to churning out my smutty projects 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.
