Snapchat vlog on manuscript revisions – Week 3

Snapchat vlog on manuscript revisions – Week 3

Latest instalment of my revision vlog! This week I’m grappling with rewrites on the first five chapters of my new book. I’m hating how hard it is to write exposition, and loving our weird-cool trip to a plague exhibition in the National Library of Scotland, with a peek at plants used for medicinal purposes.

Plot, structure, death, death and more death

I’m fixated on plot and structure at the moment – you may be, too, if you’re a writer tackling revisions on a work in progress or a NaNoWriMo draft from last year.

This year, for the first time, I’m editing a manuscript that I’ve left for a long, long rest. I wrote it more than a year ago. I’ve never let a first draft sit for so long before.
