Small disclaimer. Senseless tech talk included.
I don’t do straight lines. I don’t pack well. I don’t fold things in littler sizes. I’m hopeless at organizing things into closets, drawers, and I really don’t read instructions well.
It either makes me really creative or dyslexic. Point of fact I’m both. Once someone tells me there’s only one way to do something, I feel positively pinched until I find my way around it.
I’m currently getting ready to publish the second volume of Sight Unseen, The Inverted Cup. I have these lovely cup drawings, one for each story, that I can easily put into a print book. Illustrations on a Kindle aren’t so easy. You can do a comic book or child’s book with illustrations on every page, or no pictures at all.
So I currently have my mobi file with the pictures in it up for Kindle review. It’s been stalled for a week.
Why do we push outside the box? More to the question is why do we insist on boxes.
It’s safer. It’s easier. It’s plug and play. And in the same way, I’ve never taken a survey that asked anything relevant. Sometimes in the effort to be easy and safe, we lose something so much more wonderful.
As an artist, I’ve never been able to keep things in a square. It’s no surprise I’m struggling with it here.
If anyone has a magic easy answer for this, I’m ready for rescue. Get on your white horse and come on over. I have no clue how to fight this. And I will thank you and heap glory on your head.
Hopefully, in a couple of weeks I can hand you all a wonderful Kindle book with illustrations. If it all blows up, I’ll be able to hand you a wonderful book. And a gallery of pictures up on the web.
