This week’s post continues Chapter 15 with Scene 2 (1.15.2).
It took me a week to get over the cold – which has settled into my chest with a nice cough, but for a while there I could sing Old Man River with the best of the basso profundos. Really. I meant to get around to recording myself…
From the scene:
Some of the things learned this week:
Setting up a proper website – without WordPress holding my hand. Scary!
Buying my domain http://www.prideschildren.com – and no, it’s not open for business yet.
Getting an EIN from the IRS so I have it to give to Amazon (it’s like a Social Security# for businesses and the self-employed).
Picking a WordPress theme – and learning how to customize.
Tackling Pixelmator – lots of nice videos on YouTube for this powerful Mac graphics program – which I will use to re-do my cover in a more powerful way (sez me) – and permission from my friend Jon Gwenn to use his photos, for real and in writing.
Learning and starting to use Wattpad (don’t worry, they’re way behind here for serializing). I hope to have PC Book 1 serialized several places as the easy start to reading. And of course I hope no one who reads past a couple of chapters won’t stay for the long haul – we’ll see.
Writing – remember that part? And editing – the last chapters are in rough shape, and no one sees them that way.
Plus: learning to walk with my new AFOs; riding the bike; some tiny amount of weeding; paperwork for my Dad; family stuff; …
The list seems endless – and didn’t come with any more energy attached. I get things done by an iron discipline: two hours up – and get thee to bed for that nap; repeat. Boring – but at least some things are getting done.
Additional beta readers welcome – contact me if you’d like to participate (and get to read things earlier).
Typo reports extremely welcome! Thanks!
