I planned to enter a new novel I recently finished in Page Turner Contest. After reviewing how to write a synopsis, I am confused. My concern is that the major plot does not begin until late in the third chapter. The first three chapters contain two challenges that help the MC and her husband make the decision to leave their positions and go on a short term mission trip to Appalachia. The main plot begins in chapter four and is full blown in chapter six.
Question: If the MC, the plot and the conflict must happen in first paragraph of synopsis do I leave out the first chapters out of the synopsis? Help please.
Thanks and many blessings.
