Book Process (Part 2)

Oh my gosh working on the final stages of my books drove me crazy. There was this battle inside of me. 

I keep editing because well, I don’t want to publish a book with a misspelled word. On the other hand,  I stall when I’m on to SOMETHING. I do this all the time. Only these days I recognize this resistance as lizard brain. 

I will never forget the day I thought I was done and IT FELT GOOD. What do I do? I delete the file I’m working on. I I actually published my first book with highlights. Yikes! Thank goodness it was an easy fixable e-book. Imagine if this edition had gone to print. 

There’s so much involved in working on a chapter book. I need to find a new program to help me put together the book layout. Word is terrible. I would edit a picture and the whole layout would shift. 

The best part is I completed my goal. All three books are done. I realize more than ever that I don’t need to draw or paint like my favorite artists. The world already has them. I can make mistakes. 

I have lots of designs that I sketched years ago. It’s only after these books that I can share them. I’ll never make that mistake again. 

What a roller coaster ride…
