The general rule is that a synopsis should be written in present tense, third person, regardless of the tense/perspective of the manuscript. I sometimes hear that this doesn't apply to a synopsis for a memoir, which should be written in past tense, first person, just like the memoir itself.
Which of the following is appropriate, then?
A. The following spring, I enrolled at Frogparts Academy and met Joe Prince.
B. The following spring, Jen enrolls at Frogparts Academy and meets Joe Prince.
My thinking is that it depends on context. I should use A if I'm writing a synopsis as part of a pitch to a publisher, while someone writing a plot summary of my book for Wikipedia would choose B. Thoughts?
