A synopsis is a summary of your CHARACTER'S story, not a summary of the story itselfHmm, that sounds good but it needs some thinking about...Can't help but feel it is a bit of an artificial division. Isn't the story and the characters' story the same thing? The fiction author may be attempting to explore a variety of themes but s/he does it is through the people who come to life in her prose. The characters are the story.
