Hello all.

I am currently writing a more fully synopsis (read: plan) for my novel, As Yet Untitled, for which I spoke about the major characters’ names yesterday. The snowflake method I am following states that after this section is complete, if I have been published before, this would be a good point to sell the novel. Alas, I have not been.

Nonetheless, I feel that it is probably something that my readers would be interested in seeing. Essentially the tale is of Irgard and his bringing about of Ragnarok, set in a world largely inspired by Nordic myth.

Is this something you would like to see?

I need at least three responses before I will release the synopsis, and I would like some justification.*

* Just like I request of my students.

    I’m curious to read it. Perhaps if you do find a willing audience you could distribute it to them? That way it’s not available for all to see, but you could still get the required feedback (which I presume is your goal)?

      Hi Chris, thanks for replying.

      Yeah, my goal is to generate feedback and excitement for the project both. I’ve already decided to freely share with a certain subset a number of the stages. However, only those that want to read it will, which is why I generally advocate free access.

      There’ll be released teasers either way!

    I wouldn’t worry too much about keeping it secret. In my humble opinion (and it is just that) a novel does not succeed solely on the strength or originality of its ideas. It’s the execution of those ideas that lingers in the memory, and no-one can plagiarise that.

    I’d love to see what’s going on!

      These were my thoughts too. Concept is minimal (except perhaps in cyberpunk – I want to patent advertising on CCTV); execution is of the greatest import.
