I just spent like 30 minutes working on a few hundred words of my story descriptions. I read through some of them online, got the general gist, and word vomited.
This writing has been something I want to work on because my friend Yankee is going to Kindle my books. I hope I didn't annoy him by trying to do some of the work. I sent him "The Long Walk" and "Paranoia" to Kindle as a set. I added a table of contents and acknowledgements and a copy-rite section. I skipped the author section. You'll see those soon after Monday. "The Long Walk" is a test publication for me, before putting out "La Bruja del Barrio Loco". You can sample some of them in Antojitos.
I also fooled around with a free software called Calibre which is pretty easy to use. The only thing is I am not sure why my table of contents font is bigger than the rest of the font. It's quite odd. I made a *.mobi and Amazon file (forgot the file type), and looked at them in my e-reader. I guess I will have to pick Eric's brain about why that happened. Like my mom says, "Tiene su chiste." Kindling books has its nuances. Like, should I add page numbers? I supposed if they get printed, yes.
Anyway, in real life, breakfast took longer than I had planned. Then, I decided to wash dishes before fooling around with software and reading manuals on Smash Words about formatting files and what-not. Now, I am going to try to break the 300 page barrier in The Harvest. If not, I'm going to look over old stories. I tell you, I really am becoming an early morning writer.
Actually, I think it's time to revise. Let's see what pops out, crying for attention.
Honor your writing process, even post-crepes-from-scratch energy. #Resist
