Draft 1 of my book almost done

on October 14, 2010

Well it is Thursday evening and I have been fighting with Word over page numbering because it has decided at the end of my book about Robert Brouk, to skip a page in the numbering. The only way it seems to add it back in is if I add a blank page. Am I just tired and don’t see the easy way to fix this? Regardless, I have not done much blogging or anything else this week because I have been desperately writing to finish this book and let my editor take it for a bit.

I am learning a lot (which will hopefully make my next book a little easier to write) and hope to have this published in January. Please send good vibes because it is so important I finish this project soon because I want Robert’s widow Virginia to have a copy of it. Without her love, encouragement, support, stories and photographs, Robert’s complete story would never have been told. Thanks to her, he will live on and be remembered for the great things he did in his brief but shining life.

  1. Good for you. Finished a project, or a phase of a project, is very satisfying… and energizing. Keep up the good work! ;-)

    Jen–sorry no advice for Word, other than to step away from your computer for a little while and come back with a fresh mind. I’m a fan of Microsoft Publisher if Word isn’t doing the trick

    Good luck finishing, although I’m sure you won’t need it. What service are you going with to publish?
