Snapchat vlog on manuscript revisions – Week 3

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 the ‘inside flowers’ website I found that showed a super-helpful (to me) cross-section of a hyacinth blossom.

Inspiration this week came from WOLF WILDER, the glorious wolfish adventure by Katherine Rundell, and from JACK REACHER author Lee Child. And! And! My seedlings started to grow.

My agent Jennifer Laughran has my manuscript out on submission to publishers, which isn’t obsessing me quite as much as I’d expected, probably because these revisions are so all-consuming.

I’m shooting this vlog (badly…but I’m learning) on Snapchat, where you can add me if you like at sheilamaverbuch.
