I read on a writers' loop I'm on, how important it is to do chapter-by-chapter synopses of your books. How the publisher "needs" them, etc. Is this so the prospective buyer doesn't actually have to read the book before rejecting it? My overall problem with synopses is that I'm a seat-of-the-pants writer. I don't want to know every last hiccup before I start writing. Surprise me, story! Plus, if I could tell a story in 300 words, I'd write flash-fiction. I certainly wouldn't waste my time writing 85,000. Or am I just being ornery?
