First thing this morning, I finished the synopsis I started yesterday. So I have a synopsis of sorts. It's exactly 2 pages long and does not contain any mention of Gregor.
It therefore needs a whole plot strand inserting and corresponding pruning to get it back down to under 2 pages.
This will take one more pass at least.
In other news, our son-in-law has embarked on negotiations on our behalf for the Daihatsu. With luck the deal can be concluded this week so G will have a vehicle capable of travelling to the conference he is attending next week.
