Work on the Plot Synopsis Continues

Although my use of the word "continues" implies that I had been working on it in some regular pattern--which is not the case. But I did have a lot of thoughts rattling around in my head during the week, so today has been a really good day for getting those thoughts down on paper.

So, in short: I've filled out probably 1/4 of the plot outline into something approaching a synopsis. It's not a full-on detailed synopsis yet, but it is getting much closer. My current plan is to complete the first pass through fleshing out the outline, then go back and make another pass to add even more flesh--also some fat, skin, hair, and other details that will make it start to look like a real person story.

I may also take a remedial class in the proper use of metaphor.
