This dog looks a bit insecure. Dontcha think?
Woe is me. I'm in the same dog house as this cute fella above. Insecure.
Who? Me? Insecure? Let me count the ways.
A New Experience with Low Content Book Creation
1. I am using articles from this blog to create a journal for those who want to tell their life stories.
I have never put together a "low content" book/journal. It's all new to me.
2. I have to figure out what journal format to use and design lined pages and activity
3. I have never formatted a book for print.
4. I have never created a cover for a print book.
4. I have never marketed a journal.
Rather than go on and on and on, I think you get the picture. I'm excited about it, challenged,
and also very insecure and nervous about the project at the same time. The content is
no problem since I have been presenting workshops on writing life stories since 2004.
I find that I am scouring the Internet for helpful tips on all of these challenging items. It's easier
to read blogs and books and watch webinars on "how-to" instead of actually diving in
and working on accomplishing the tasks.
This weekend I came to the conclusion that I will attack this journal and learn from my
mistakes. OJT (on-the-job) training is the best way to learn.
However, if you have any helpful ideas for me, I'd appreciate them!
