SLEEPLESS NIGHTS & POETRY

the past two nights, all weekend actually, I didn’t sleep at night. It’s been awhile since I’ve had long sleepless nights. Especially two in a row. Although I did get quite a lot of writing done, I actually got to a word count of 20,000! I’m participating my second year in NANOWRIMO, I need to reach 50,000 words in a couple of days. I’m not giving up- and to all those out there in the same predicament as me DONT GIVE UP KEEP WRITING KEEP GOING KEEP DREAMING YOU GOT THIS-

Short thoughts on DIY book publishing

I’ve always dreamt of publishing my own book. Even better, that it gets transformed into its very own movie or TV series. It is my dream, well one of them anyways. 

I’ve been dreaming for years, now it’s time to get moving.

I’m currently participating in NANOWRIMO 2016. It’s basically trying to reach a word goal count of 50,000 in a month (November). I tried last year and never reached the goal. Now I’m trying again, only 9 days left and I’m at 6,000 words so far (still trying to win).

I’ve decided to publish a poetry book. Although it started as a science fiction, I might get back to it-but my little heart tells me poetry is my gendra these days. 

I’ve learnt quite a few things doing some quick research. 

1. Don’t stress or get overwhelmed by the steps needed to reach your goal

2. Be patient and have fun 

3. Purchase your own ISBN 

4. Use social media to get your name out there 

5. Get your book edited 

6. Have a catchy title and great book cover 

7. Use Amazon and start with an e-book 

I’m sure there’s a million other things I can add to this list. Right now, this is my goal. 

GOODLUCK to all nanowrimo participants and to all those self publishing their own book at the moment!
