I spent hours today, quite literally, doing agonizing work in the self-publishing realm. All I can say is that I am glad actually writing the book is fun, easy, and my favorite thing in the world. Otherwise, I might give up. Not that anything I did today was hard. It wasn't. But it was long, and boring and often frustrating. Formatting pages and editing and re-editing and re-editing and formatting pages....in circles, over and over. I don't understand why it couldn't just work the first time. But I suppose the finished book, held in my hands, will be all that much sweeter because of the headache I endured to get it done.
Despite the challenges though, I am getting very excited! My first novel about to be published...for REAL! :) I cannot wait. One very fun thing I got to do today was design my cover...I could do that all day. :)
When the book is finally finished and published I'll be sure to let you know. :) Right now I'm off to go do some more 'finishing touches'....those take FOREVER.
On a different subject altogether...I'm heading off on another long trip, so there will be another lengthy silence. My apologies. I should stop being so busy, huh? We're leaving for Bible Bowl Nationals on the fourth. Hopefully we'll all do amazing and come back with bizarre stories to tell, wonderful memories to cherish...and maybe even a trophy or two. (Here's hoping)
