Monday’s post—a little late!

Everything has suddenly become hectic this week. I meet with Karen on Tuesday to discuss the final tweaks for Reader 1 and also to work out the storyboard for Reader 2. 

No matter how hard I look, or how many people also proof read Reader 1 for me, I continue to find typos or, more often, word breaks in the wrong places. I even found more after our meeting. I know there are no major problems—but I want it to be perfect. At the moment I am stuck, struggling with a table, trying to get the word list to cooperate and keep the a japanese words appropriately lined up with their English meanings. This is not as easy as it sounds and I am becoming frustrated. Help is on its way, in the form of my daughter’s partner, who I am expecting to call from Melbourne any minute with a super simple solution. Then my job as writer will be almost over (for Book 1, that is). Karen is going to send me a couple of cover designs from which to choose and I have to look into ISBNs. (I know I’ve got info about ISBNs filed somewhere from a course I’ve done about getting published). It’s probably time to get out the book on self-publishing as I know there’s a lot of work ahead of me that has not a lot to do with actual writing.  

I am finding this whole challenge exciting and feel inspired and invigorated by the progress I have made so far.

By my next post I will work out how to upload some images and make this Reader project come to life in this blog.

Until Sunday! (I’ll have my head down, mastering technology)

Cheers   Trish
