Synopsis Misery

Right now, I am in synopsis hell.  I’ve been stuck there for the last couple of days. It usually takes me about two weeks to write one, (Good synopses take time; you can’t slap them together quickly.) and I have three to write for my NIGHT FABRIC TRILOGY. Finally, yesterday, I managed to find the right angle for the first and second one. The only problem is that I have two different openings for the first and can’t figure out which is the most gripping of the two. Super! :-/  As for the third one…well, I’m still in the dark about it. 

For some helpful advice on the subject check out these two articles: How to Write a I-Page Synopsis and Writing a Good Synopsis.
