Why does this rewrite of the synopsis of Bladesman keep feeling more like a teaser trailer than it does a plot synopsis? I either go into the "this happens, then this happens…" or the "In a world…" direction. I'm not sure either is the correct function. Sigh.
But I do think this one is a little better than the last one. Maybe if I sleep on it it'll seem better in the morning. For something less than 400 words, it shouldn't be this much trouble, should it?
In the end, I need to get it done to continue flogging the book and get back to writing the next one.
