A Tiny Rose For You!
This morning I photographed this lone little rose in my garden. I can’t imagine how she survives, because it’s almost 40ºC in the shade! But she struggles on, and grows, alone in her singular beauty…
Some days I feel like that! Small, alone, tired, and struggling against the natural elements…
As you know I’m formatting my ebook to be published as a paperback with CreateSpace, and the process is driving me close to a nervous breakdown!
That said, I’m feeling more positive this afternoon, for several reasons.
Firstly, the formatting process is looking better, I’ve managed to get the page numbers, and headers right with mirror format (or whatever it’s called), and I’ve found a lovely scene break symbol, instead of ***, but it’s not the right dpi!
There are so many new words, and acronyms, and Microsoft Word, and Adobe PDF are so stubborn, that sometimes I want to cry, or maybe shout…
If I sound incoherent, it’s because I’m feeling confused… But let me go back to my optimism.
Secondly, I’m feeling fortunate because I have so many virtual Friends who ‘are really there’.
I’d like to thank you all for voting, and commenting on my book cover. I’ll let you know what I finally decide. Thank you also for your encouraging comments and support. Nobody else (in my ‘real’ life) understands what I’m going through…
Thirdly, I’ve had a ‘mirror interview’ published today in Iona’s fabulous blog readfulthings, please check out her blog, if you don’t already know it.
Fourthly, I have another 5***** review on Amazon. I met Amanda quite by chance, through Goodreads, and she kindly offered to read and review my book. I’m grateful and fortunate that readers are enjoying my novel.
So really, what am I complaining about? A few little letters and symbols? some silly computer progammes?
Come on! Pull yourself together, Luccia, you’re a *!
