Sometime in the future, I'm buying Adobe PhotoShop with my educator discount. That way I can design my book covers and not be pestering my friends for help. I want to redo La Bruja covers. I was thinking of having the face of a woman in black and white and changing the colors of the titles for each book. I like the image in the original La Bruja in the Orchard cover, but it is muted. Now, changing the cover won't increase sales or exposure, but I have to do it for my own inner peace.
Anyway, on the writing front, I drafted a short version of the writing article I mentioned in yesterday's blog post. I was pretty happy with what I wrote because I think it speaks to advice beginning writers should keep in mind, and sometimes seasoned writers, e.g. are you comparing yourself to other writers? Stop. Stop. Stop. I thought about drafting one on character development, but there was already an article on that in the first magazine edition.
That's all I've got. I have to review essay drafts and sneak in writing time somewhere between my work and running after my kids.
Take your writing by the horns! #barrrioblues
