My novel skips around in time quite a lot. Is there any general consensus on how to write a short synopsis for a story that's told out of order?
Should I just go ahead and try to put the synopsis in chronological order anyway? That might make it easier, but it would have a very different structure from the book.
I've read that headers and chapter numbers are to be avoided in synopses -- I get why, but otherwise it's tempting to have these in order to demarcate separate timelines.
I have an older synopsis here which does have headers and chapter numbers, but I think I should probably re-write this from the ground up. E.g. I think it's too long, doesn't say enough about character motivation, etc.
Anyway, my main question is just how others have approached this problem. I'd love to see an example of a "good" synopsis of a non-chronological novel.
