I was inspired by the movie Julie and Julia where Julia learns to French Cook and gets a recipe book published. Many years later Julie needs a challenge in her life so cooks for a total of one year from Julia’s book and succeeds with over 500 recipes cooked which was quite a challenge in itself.

I am taking up the CHALLENGE  of completing my  8 children’s stories and self publishing into a book/s starting today and what better day than the anniversary of Robert and I first meeting 13 years ago . The end date will be 21st September 2014. I will write a blog every day. I look forward to your comments and your friends comments and would also like to hear of your challenges as well.

Today I will rearrange some pages from the story The Rescue. A great chance to think this morning at Hamburg Creek sitting under the trees and watching the geese and little goslings.

    Well its day two of the challenge. It’s amazing how one and a half hours can go by quickly especially when you are changing pages around, inserting pages and seeing what will and won’t work. Turns out the horse and cart photograph I had in the story already was not on my pictures selected. Looks like I had just cut and paste it to the story from word document. So I went through photographs and found another picture and made sure this was imported into where my photographs go.

    I self publish with and the program I am using is Booksmart. Is there anyone else out there doing writing through Blurb? Also are there others that have not had as much motivation like I was and would really like to write and complete their book. Go for it. It will be a great goal. Nice sunny day out here in Outback Queensland. We look forward to the rain. Be great to hear your comments. Until tomorrow. Madonna
