I’ve worked hard all day on my writing, mainly on my haiku book, but I also wrote a blog post: Thoughts on Writing and Publishing. Last night I got my drawings done from April through September (I’d done January through March the night before), so tonight I hope to finish. Today I photographed them, then cropped the photos and enhanced them so they have more contrast, and placed them in the Word document for my book. I also entered all the text changes I’d decided on when I edited by hand yesterday. In addition, I wrote the author’s blurb at the end, as well as the dedication and the acknowledgements. So if I get the last three drawings completed tonight, I should be able to send the book off tomorrow which is very exciting! But right now, I’m exhausted and ready for a quiet evening watching more of ‘Allo ‘Allo!
