Writing Week in Review: 11/5-11/11


I am certainly glad that I set aside time last weekend to write because as you may have guessed from the rather softwarewebsite, and data heavy blog week, I was not interested in writing much about the intricacies of being human. Some times are like that, I suppose.

Regardless, I have continued to make progress on my novel experiment. In addition to crafting the work’s innards, I’ve begun working more closely with my design partner on the details of the cover. We may end up going on a small adventure to find a new base image, and I am excited about the prospect of that. (In another life, I would have loved to have a better eye for design, but alas, I do not.)

Though I am fairly happy with how my self-imposed deadline is going, the due date is looming ever closer. I want this work done by the end of the year after all. As long as that bit of pressure results in productivity rather than paralysis, I should be fine.

I hope that your weekend is a productive one as well!

  1. Cover design is such a specialised skill, isn’t it? A well-designed cover gives me confidence the author cares deeply about their content. Personally, I steer clear of books that have a “cookie-cutter” approach to their cover.

      1. With a first draft, the main task is just to get the words on the page – don’t break the flow to keep editing unless your mistakes will impact on the subsequent plotline. You can edit later, once you’ve the novel completed. Hope that helps!
