The full synopsis is done! I reworked and reworded until I got it just right - not too tedious and not a laundry list. The blow-by-blow ended up at 9 pages and around 6300 words. It's a behemoth, but not every agent is going to want the whole damn thing. Now that I've got it, though, I can tailor it to meet whatever each agent requires. Now I just need to move so I can start querying. Yay!

Like I said in another post, don't expect great things of me this week. I have a lot of crap to pack and move, plus a whole other bunch to sort and sell. And as luck would have it, I have a doctor's appointment out of town tomorrow which shoots that day all to hell. (No worries, it's a standard thing - I just don't have a lot of faith in the local docs.) On the upside, I will be hitting the bookstore. Unfortunately, I'm hitting it tomorrow and some really awesome books are hitting the bookstores on Tuesday. :pout: Keep your fingers crossed that some of those books end up on the shelves early. Hey, it's been known to happen.

Another great thing about a day out of town - even if the time would be put to better use at home right now - is that we get to eat lunch at a real restaurant. Sure, it'll be a chain of some sort. Olive Garden, Red Lobster, IHOP... something. Not haute cuisine, but better than the local fare.

So, to wrap this up, what's your favorite chain restaurant? Personally I'm just happy if it's not drive-thru or pizza.

Yay! for finishing the synopsis.

Favorite chain would have to be Cheesecake Factory. Love that place!

Rudy's BBQ is great but I go for local fare more often.
