Day 1,000,000 – April Update

Has it come to this? Monthly updates? lol.

I started from the beginning again recently. Put another hour and a half in this morning. Crafting. Trimming. Polishing. I like this book. I like the intricacies (I think I’m) weaving into the story. There is a lot more give and take between the two main characters than I thought there was at first, a lot of subtle undertones. Is it enough? I’m not sure about that… Others will tell me, I hope. That’s one thing that I’m still working on — unlike my day job writing, I’m still not 90% sure whether this is “good” or not. It’s humbling (in a good way) to have to rely upon others’ viewpoints to get me through this.

But as I say, I like it. That’s a start, I suppose.

  1. I’m just finishing up an annual report that feels like I wrote a novel, leading me to wonder if I never got into copywriting — neatly avoiding any long-form writing — because my attention span just didn’t extend past a headline and 162 words.

    Edifying thought, that.

    I’m curious about the mechanism you’ll eventually use to send sample pages (or the whole thing) to your friends/ex-friends/readers. Is that going to be a word file, or are you planning to tart things up a bit with a more readable pdf — or even an ebook (epub)?

    I guess I’m fascinated by writer tech the same way small children are fascinated by shiny things.

      Ha, I’m in the middle of Annual Report season myself…

      I’m planning to send sample pages in whatever format the readers want: Word, PDF, even hard copy. And yes, even an ebook format — it’s not too difficult apparently to lay it out using InDesign, if you know what you’re doing (luckily, I do, somewhat…) It will give me a good practice run at doing it too.

      I’m all about the tart…
