Write a One-page Synopsis in Three Paragraphs

Write a one-page synopsis in three paragraphs. Synopsis for query to literary agent or publisher.

Paragraph 1. Introduce main characters and how the story starts (conflict, setting, time). What is the inciting moment?

Paragraph 2. Goals and plans of protagonist and antagonist. Brief details of what they do, how they do it, where and when they do it, and why they do it.

Paragraph 3. How does the story end? Are conflicts resolved? Are goals reached? Tie this back to the inciting moment.
