First I have to say - I screwed up and didn't follow the rules on submitted my sypnosis and I apologize to the powers that be. I was rushing and not reading the rules. If it get deleted it's probably a blessing. :blush:

anyways I KNOW that this has been addressed before but can't find the post...and I probably even started it :tongue:

Is a synopsis for a memior in 1st or 3rd person, past or present tense. I had seen both and heard arguments for both so there a correct way or not

From what I've read, all synopses should be in 3rd person, present tense. I suppose I could be wrong, though :P
