This is so frustrating. I've been formatting and re-formatting the print copy of my book. For some reason I can't get the page numbers to transfer from word to a PDF file.
If you can't tell I'm not that tech savvy and it doesn't stop there. Apparently I also don't have an eye for detail. I received my book cards and discovered a typo. I had to reorder five hundred more cards. Grrrr. I've now been obsessively proof reading all that I've done. Pain is an excellent teacher.
My mom and I are off to Tahoe with the dogs. I've decided to give myself the weekend off of book duty and just enjoy the process of creating my first draft of 'Twist's sequel 'Chosen'. The first draft is one hundred percent my favorite part of writing a book. My mysteries are very involved and require heavy plot outlining.
Even though I plot point like mad before I even write a word of my first draft I never know what I'm going to get. It's not until I throw adversity at my characters that I learn more about them. They always surprise me. I'll anticipate them to respond one way and sometimes they react the exact opposite. I've never written a sequel and am excited to learn more about these characters that have grown into complex people with their own hopes, dreams, fears and personal struggles.
I'm ready for my over due break from Createspace.
