Today I’m wading through reviews of Sharon Creech’s books. Since she’s such a popular author, there are dozens of reviews of each book, and I won’t use all of them, but I need to stockpile as many as I can so that I can extract all the good lines and weave them together to make a nice, seamless narrative when I do write about her books myself. This is probably the most tedious part of the process because reviews about her books don’t tell me anything about her, so there’s no excitement for me, no discovering something interesting about this author that I can connect to and rework into my version of her story.
But it has to be done.
Back I go.
