A Writer’s Work

Who ever thought the easiest part about publishing a book would be the writing? Certainly not me! Difficult plot points, uncooperative characters with attitudes, and settings that just don’t work, used to be the worst that I dealt with while writing.

The ebook version of Elementals: Discovery is available for both the Kindle and the Nook. But since not everyone has an e-reader, and some people have also asked for a print version, I’ve been busy trying to get that finished. Different formatting. Different file requirements. It’s enough to make a person scream and inhale a chocolate bar, and I may have. Several times.

But you know what? After all is said and done, I’m very proud of my work. Not in the, “Hey, look at me, I wrote a book, wahoo, I am awesome!” way. But in the, “Hey, I wrote a book, and I learned about cover design, ebook and print formatting, website building, marketing, and I’m still going!” way.

Just because something is difficult doesn’t mean it isn’t worth it. And if writing is the easy part, well then. This truly is my dream job!

So I’m going to unwrap yet another bar of chocolate, crack my knuckles, (sorry, Mom!) and get back to work. Happy Friday, everyone!
