Isn’t it great? Ebook formatting and writing fiction seem to be the perfect balance for me. Actually, one of the ebooks I’m formatting helped me realize how left-brained I am, which helped me realize that if I spend a significant portion of my day doing that type of detailed work, it’s much easier to do some right-brain writing later. (I’ll tell you about the book when it’s up for sale.)
I’ve been told my dad wanted me to be a computer programmer, but I never knew that. I did grow up playing with BASIC on a Tandy 64 (ROFL… as in 64K!), but I always thought of computers as a fun thing.
Anyway, I think I already posted this, but I was sitting here and formatting and thinking, “Gosh. I’m so lucky my author friends guided me into this business.”
So I wanted to thank you guys again. Every time you’ve asked me a computer-related question or an ebook formatting question, it wasn’t me doing you a favor, it was you helping me find my niche.
I’m a little behind (if you’re my Facebook friend, you know I’ve managed to get sick three times in a row), but I’ll be back to blogging soon.
I want to finish the Kindle Formatting series, but I’ve discovered that the more I learn, the more there is to explain. There are so many little details. It was easier to write it when I didn’t know as much. I am planning on putting together a book, though.
Also, I’ve been obsessed with book design lately, and I thought I might do a weekly post showcasing the cool stuff out there. It’s one of those things that you don’t notice all that goes into it until you start… noticing it.
What’s up with you guys lately?
