Planning Nano: aim verses plot

image

Every time I write a synopsis for my nano novel it is so academic and like a critical analysis in its turn of phrase, rather than about the story itself. I keep writing the aim rather than the plot. My latest novel synopsis is:
To explore the disintegration of society and its adaptation (technological and behavioural) to a dominant environment.
The annoying part is I have a vague plot and can see the main character now, but I keep getting technical with my synopsis. It is like I am back at university and analysing a text.

Tomorrow I’m buying some A2 cardboard and mapping things out. It worked with my thesis *shrugs* hopefully it will with a novel too. I just wish I could hang a corkboard on my wall…
