Our new prompt for today, January 14, is Publish

Please click on the link to see what it’s all about:


To publish a book or even a blog post takes a lot of time. I’m not going to say that using long hours to publish is a waste of time. It seems that publishing is a long journey up to when the book is published. I’ve tried my hand at publishing a few e-books and one hard copy. I first published an ebook on my flash fiction pieces. That wasn’t a big success because I didn’t have a programme to send a pdf to create space. At the end I published it and it didn’t look good. Then I did an Afrikaans ebook through Smashwords which was/is much better. This is a book on what I have written every week on the challenge run by myself. Not bad, but I put hours and more hours in for some weeks to publish it. I am also part of a writing group where we write our memories on our past. I’ve got heaps of writing. Every year we publish (print) a book, taking about six to ten of our stories written during the year. 

The year before last I decided to publish the first part of my Memoirs. I published the stories of my first six years. I used the old “create space” and made a hard copy in print on demand and then also an eBook at the same time. I enjoyed publishing this book. When I hold it in my hand I am proud to say that it looks good. My friends also said it was worth publishing the story of my life. I’m now busy with my schooling years. Halfway with my primary years. It’s still a long way from publishing, but I enjoy working on my memoirs.

          Dankie vir die aanmoediging. My familie is nie baie ondersteunend nie. Gelukkig het ek darem vriende hier. Probleem is hul kan nie Afrikaans verstaan nie so ek moet vertaal in Engels. Dis hoekom my eerste deeltjie in Engels is. Ouens het dit baie geniet.

      I agree with you. At times you just have to step away for a while before going on to finish it off.
