So, after a long day (and an even longer period of not posting) I am actually working on my book/story/novel/really long piece of fiction. And let’s just say, it’s not the fun part of “working on it”.
I am in the editing stage of “Darkness”, my NaNoWriMo novel. It’s really more of the aesthetic stage, where I perfect the layout, page numbering, and stuff like that. Not the most fun part of the journey, to say the least. There are about 32 chapters to go through, and basically what I’m doing right now is the same thing repeated for all 32 chapters. Oh the glories of self-publishing!
Of course, there are self-publishers out there who can actually afford to pay for such services, and pre-pregnancy I had every intention of paying for a cover. I also had every intention to have this whole thing done by May. I laugh in the face of deadlines. Mostly those sad “fade to crying” laughs that just sound pitiful in the end.
The thing is, I know Perfectionist-Me will just have to keep going back and trying to make everything just right, and she will never be happy! So, I’m hoping I can at least get this done before the next National Novel Writing Month rolls around!
Wish me luck!
Good luck! I have created a cover on Createspace for paperback and just moved it over to KDP. It seems to be the easiest way for me. :))
Happy Blogging and Writing
I’ve done a few books with createspace. I’m too much a perfectionist when it comes to editing, and I’m not good enough with cover creation to make my ideas work!
Yeah, it never is easy and the second guessing yourself is a given. Hope you get to where you want to be on the design and editing! :))
