Using a draft of your work-in-progress, write a 500-word synopsis of your novel idea in the style of back cover copy.
Then, answer the following questions:
Is this story substantial enough, interesting enough?
Does the main conflict of the story open to several mini-conflicts?
Why do you think this story is interesting or universally appealing?
What is the concept of the novel?
Who are the main characters and what is the primary conflict? (Your answers to these questions should not exceed 300 words.)
