I put my sheep story together in a book form (with a cover and sewn signatures and everything) for a child. I loved looking at the story in this completed form, turning the pages and reading the story gave me such pleasure! I had to title the story in order to do this, which I’ve been resisting for a long time, but it was good to be forced to do it. I can change it in the future if I want to, but for now it’s called “Never Underestimate a Sheep that Dreams”.

I’ve got my sheep story edited to a point that I’m quite happy with. I like the ending much more now than ever before, and I’ve cut out a lot of unnecessary bits so the story reads cleanly. Thanks a lot to Rosewilder for her editing suggestions and encouragement!!
Now I’d like to see about publishing it. It’s too long for magazine publication. I’ve got an idea for self-publication that could work well I think – even if it doesn’t put much money in my pocket I’m fairly confident I would break even on it. But my first choice would be for a publishing company to fall in love with it and do all the work for me. So it’s time to write an email to my cousin’s partner – the person I know who knows the most about publishing. I’m a bit intimidated to do this, though I’m not sure why – she’s a lovely person and I think she’ll have a lot of positivity and good info to offer.
Reading Momo now, by the same author as The Neverending Story, which I absolutely loved (in movie form) as a kid. It was a gift from a friend who knows how to give good gifts.
all reading, no writing.
:( boo hoo for me.
I’ve almost finished a first draft of my story. I’m trying not to turn into a perfectionist before it’s healthy to do so; trying to remember that writing is a process and my story won’t become what I want it to be if I just wrinkle my nose up at it.
Dad asked what I want in a package he’ll be sending me soon, and I looked on Amazon.com for a guide to writing children’s stories. There were a lot to choose from and I didn’t have the time to research which one would be best, so I used a different method to pick one: one of the books was by an author with the last name LAMB!
I´ve been writing down a story that my mind has been playing with for a little while. Playing is more fun than writing with all of it´s details and exactness, but reading what I´ve written is fun too so I´ll keep on writing. I´m telling enough people about it that I feel I´ve created some accountability. My story will be completed soon!!!
I just read The Lion the Witch and the Wardrobe for the first time since my childhood. The story I´ve been writing is coming along, but slowly.
http://www.anarchadia.co.uk/ is a site about self publishing.
another idea: WWW.penpress.co.UK (a cooperative publisher) or loulou.? – honest, reliable; if your book makes money, bot you and the company makes money; if your book doesn’t make money, ??
I was speaking tonight with a fellow here on the island. Somehow we got talking about the things we’d like to be doing but aren’t. I’ve appointed him my ‘mommy’ on several of these types of things: goals that are nagging to be done but that I haven’t been doing anything about. Nice to have some accountability …
