So, I’m still sick. I’ve been cooped up all week and it is no fun at all. I’d so much rather be out doing stuff. Instead, I’m stuck inside, blowing my nose and chugging Robitussin.
The good news is that although I’ve been a complete and total slob these last few days, I’ve at least been a little productive. I’ve been working on my website for my publishing company. It’s not all that fantastic yet as, and I’ll be totally honest here, I do not know the first thing about web design. But hey, at least it’s a start. I’ll keep working on it throughout the next month, especially as I get closer to actually publishing my book.
I try to set weekly goals for myself. Sadly, this week’s goal has gone from “get book formatted at library” to “get healthy by Saturday so I can go to the outdoor concert and barbeque and fireworks show that my sister and I are taking my dad to for his birthday.” Seriously, we’ve all been looking forward to this concert for weeks. If I’m too sick to go, I am going to be really sad.
Anyway, next week’s goal is going to be (finally) purchasing my ISBN. All the publishing books advise you to buy in bulk, so I’m going to purchase ten for now. I’m also going to see if I can afford the bar code.
It’s getting real, y’all. I’ve just got to keep a can-do attitude (somewhat hard to do when you’re so drugged up on decongestants, you can’t really remember what happened before noon).
Anyway, here’s the link to my new publishing website. Again, it will get cooler.
