Writing my Synopsis (And Star Wars)

When you finish your fourth draft, but then you realize you have to begin querying agents. 


Even though I'm nervous, I'm so glad I have gotten to this point. Normally I’m the type of person who gives up because I get hella (do people still use this word?) lazy. But this is something that I just don’t see myself giving up on. I am 100% certain of this. I absolutely love what I do, and I can’t see myself doing anything else. It feels surreal. I can still remember planning out my story. I remember how exciting and frustrating it felt. I sat at my kitchen table, wondering when I would be finished, not knowing how proud I would be of the finished product. 

Unfortunately, I had forgotten that some agencies request you send a synopsis along with your query letter to an agent when you're trying to find one. I have not written a synopsis yet, so guess what I’ll be doing for the rest of the week! I’ll probably spend the rest of my free time sleeping, or I'll be on Netflix. I have like twenty shows in “My List” that I haven’t started yet. It’s not that I don’t have the time or anything– because I do. It’s just that I am not always in the mood to binge-watch a show because I prefer to be productive. However, this doesn’t mean I’m ALWAYS productive. I spent three hours on Youtube watching videos of the Star Wars cast. I watched The Last Jedi on the day it came out in theaters (it was AMAZING) and it has been on my mind ever since (that ending has me so angry though. Just sayin'. Besides this, I wanted to mention that I had to pay $7 for a regular size popcorn at the movie theater. SEVEN DOLLARS. That's too much. I usually don't even buy popcorn, but I was so hungry at the time).

OH. Also, if you don't know, my brother is a photographer ( and he was sweet enough to take photos of me for my website! I am so excited, and I hope they turn out well! The outfit I wore in the photos (minus the booties) was what I wrote to Star Wars: The Last Jedi. I didn't feel like changing, nor did I have a lot of time. I did, however, change into plain, black flats just to be a little bit more comfortable.
