Example of a Synopsis | Scribendi.com

Next time you need to write a synopsis, refer to our synopsis example for some guidance. Writers hate writing synopses. Some find the idea of a synopsis daunting because they have spent the last two years writing a book. Others find the idea distasteful because it is less about the art of writing and more about the business of writing. Well, it's time for some tough love. Whatever reason you may have for disliking synopses, it's irrelevant; if you're going to be a writer, you just need to write them. The synopsis is written with the express purpose of enticing a potential agent/editor to accept your manuscript for representation or publication.

Abstract Art

modern art, art created from the 19th cent. to the mid-20th cent. by artists who veered away from the traditional concepts and techniques of painting, sculpture, and other fine arts that had been practiced since the Renaissance (see Renaissance art and architecture). Nearly every phase of modern art was initially greeted by the public with ridicule, but as the shock wore off, the various movements settled into history, influencing and inspiring new generations of artists.

In the streets of Verona another brawl breaks out between the servants of the feuding noble families of Capulet and Montague. Benvolio, a Montague, tries to stop the fighting, but is himself embroiled when the rash Capulet, Tybalt, arrives on the scene. After citizens outraged by the constant violence beat back the warring factions, Prince Escalus, the ruler of Verona, attempts to prevent any further conflicts between the families by decreeing death for any individual who disturbs the peace in the future. Romeo, the son of Montague, runs into his cousin Benvolio, who had earlier seen Romeo moping in a grove of sycamores.

Virtual Reality

Markus F. Peschl and Alexander Riegler The focus of this paper is the process of knowledge acquisition (KA) and which role virtuality plays in this context. We argue that there are three different modes of knowledge acquisition which can be identified both in the domains of cognition and science: the empirical, the "constructive", and the "synthetic" mode. We show that the method of constructing knowledge in the virtual domain (i. e. , the synthetic mode of KA) is not only a principal mode of KA in our cognition (e. g. , thought experiments, making plans, etc.
