Writing a Synopsis Before I’m Even Finished

For my working novella, Slumber Citizens, I’m attempting to write a synopsis as I go along re-constructing the manuscript – even writing it before the work is finished. I’m moved to do this, I think, because it helps shape the work for me and gives me a goal to reach. I plan on finishing this revised manuscript by the end of this year, which is very near. This is a slow process and I feel guilty for skipping two days of any kind of writing. I allowed the ‘holiday spirit’ to get in the way. Watched too many movies and ate too much, and now I feel lazy. But I just sat down awhile ago and forced myself back into that individuated space, where I feel most myself and most fulfilled.
