The synopsis currently covers 32 of the 40 chapters. My goal is get to 36 by next Thursday (Final Exam day), and then all 40 by Thanksgiving. Then ..... all of December is for editing the synopsis.
I am shooting for 2 writing conferences next year -- the big one is in Colorado in September, and I will try to hit one more before that. But early in '09, I'll start the agent search.
