Writers’ least favourite job

So I’ve rewritten the last chapter of novel 1 – the adventure fantasy novel – and sent it off to my agent and you know what? The ending is better now. I wasn’t sure before I reread it that it needed changing, but he was right; the new version is superior. 

That done I’m now doing that job that every writer hates. Correct! I’m writing a synopsis of the contemporary fantasy novel. And it is a pain. I’ve had to skim read the whole novel to do this and I’m pretty happy with the story; but the synopsis? The recitation of the major events – that sucks. I don’t know anyone who claims to like doing this or does it well, but we all have to.
