That synopsis you’re trying to write may progress with less head banging if you step away from your manuscript long enough to see the big picture. Being close to something (like a story or a person), lends itself to overinflating the details—details that other people (like editors or friends) may or may not be interested in knowing about. So get some perspective by walking away for a day or two, and then return to the computer to pound out the key points.
