It would help if I had a title

Yesterday was a good day, as I expected. My friend that needed the well-wishes had a good result. The office work went by quickly. And I got quite a few more entries done for A Brief History…, also known as 002.

=(88508183)+38+233+116+248+309

The latter actually was the best part. I wrote 1,611 words yesterday, and 1,882 total. Today will hopefully go just as well, but at some point, my time will be consumed by cover art and the thing my friend Erin is going through right now.

Blurbs.

They’re critical but difficult. I’m sure they’ll get easier with practice (in fact, I know they do), but per word, they’re the most time-consuming piece of publishing for me.

Cover art comes a close second. I actually had the idea that I was going to go for covers without tons of images, hopefully saving myself some money up front, but I’m not sure how that will go. You’ll see, I expect, when I have Space Cats up for sale.

That’s everything for now. I thought, since I woke early, I might go back to bed this morning, but I think naps between loads of laundry is much more plausible at this point.

Mmm…naps.

  1. Absolutely the most time consuming part of the process! 😉

    Yay for Friday being as good as you hoped. Nice pile of words there!

    I read this newsletter the other day about the evolution of a cover design, with the final result being a fairly cool text-based cover. I’ll see if I can find that and forward it to you.

    1. Ooh, that would be amazing. My design side could really turn it into a consuming event, swallowing days in the process. Writer me is like, “Slap on the title and let’s get on with this!”
