LOL ... well there you go. I didn't know Scott had set it with the limits.

So I guess that pretty much makes it the limit. :lol:

That explained it well. You really have to have just 500 words then. So that's good to know because I'm still working on mine. Really haven't begun it because I keep getting stuck on it. But working on it. Hopefully have it done in time!
Go ahead and dream big, because God's dream is much bigger than ours!______________________________________

I'd better get busy--think I'm going to enter mine, too! But, oh! The synopsis...why do I hate them so? :?

But Dee ... the person reading the synopsis is nice (ahem). So don't get bent out of shape over it. We just need something to give us an idea of where the novel is going.

What great timing! I just finished the synopsis a few minutes ago. Now for some polish and a chapter upload and I will be ready to send it in. :wink: (And I KNOW the person who reads the synopsis is sweet AND nice. 8) )

Yay, Dee...you survived another synopsis! :mrgreen:

And I know the person reading these synopses is very nice, but I still agonize over the darn things!
