I have now have a 1000 word opener for Flyht and for Blood & Fire, I even have a 200 word appreciation of Diana Wynne Jones. All I need now is a 350 word synopsis for each. And herein I discover why it is that how ever much writers’ plan their work, they still leave the synopsis till last. Tag lines, and catchy openers I can do, but synopsis the whole story in something short and meaningful…?

Of course back in the days when I produced project proposals for tv drama, it was easy – I produced them at the drop of the hat. Unfortunately I seem to have lost that knack.

So I sit here, with Írafár on the stereo and try and come up with something. Something? Anything…?!!
