I am happy to report that I finally finished writing my book. I have edited the hell out of it about 20 or 30 times but it’s finally done.
I sent the file to 2 friends to proof read and send me bug reports if you will lol. Basically, they are beta testing my book for the lack of a better term lol.
The book in doc format is only 181 pages but in epub format it is 289 pages. I don’t know why there is a huge difference but there you have it.
I have learned a boatload of stuff about myself while writing this autobiography. For example, I remembered things that I had blocked because they were too painful. I don’t know how I remembered them but I’m glad I did.
The timeline of some memories were wrong in my head and it took writing it for me to remember when everything happened.
Well, I am just exhausted from writing. My eyes are killing me from staring into a white screen for 6 to 8 hours a day. I can’t even imagine this being my regular job. I mean blogging is my job but I’m not doing it for 6 to 8 hours non stop day after day. Some weeks I’m lucky if I have 2 posts written.
To celebrate my victory today I decided to play Lord of the Rings Online. I finally did an epic quest so I can check that off of the list of things I have to do in the game.
The book won’t be published until my beta testers have read through the whole thing and given me their input. When they do then I will have to read it one or two more times before I send it out just to make sure it’s right. Who knows, I may even have more editing lol.
I’m pretty sure that it is finished so I do plan on getting it copyrighted this or next week so that I can sell it through Amazon and Barnes & Noble as ebooks. If they sell enough copies then I will have it printed for those who don’t have a Kindle or a Nook.
Wish me luck!
