There’s a fine line between admitting you have some stupid issues with technology and staring into the abyss that is underbelly of your laptop. I can’t quite tell the difference, but after six days of dealing with formatting issues for uploading the manuscripts to POD outlets the precipice is real. I’ve gone round and round with formatting (what is usually a fairly straightforward procedure) and the proof copies of the novel will reveal whether or not I have to go back into the ring.
This might be that element of perseverance that defines me as an author almost as much as sticking with the writing process. Can’t give up. Can’t give in. Must press on. Readers are counting on me to win!
