I have always been poor at writing things without including excessive detail, but I managed to rewrite my synopsis with very little detail and with personal detailed side notes not included within the actual synopsis. It is solely the overall plot, but it is still 18 pages. Is this too long?
Quote from the linked source, which pretty much summarizes the article:
...if you ever send me five page synopsis for every 15K words I'll toss it unread. 3-5 is the MAX no matter how long your novel is. And no cheating by using 5pt fonts and .25 inch margins. Synopsis are not a blow for blow recitation of the plot. It's major points, turning points, character description and development and it's SHORT...
