I like the contrast between this post and my last. In November the test pages are wrinkled, written over and jumbled. Here, the pages are organized, clean, edited and ready to go. This book writing process has been an uphill battle on most days. Filled with computer frustration, problem solving and exercises in patience.
The first one took so much time but now I know what I am doing. I redesined the whole thing from font to layout to give this book a better feel, more uniformity and readibility.
I had a list of things to double check. Everything I had was right-every item crossed off. A I ran around crazy getting the last GPS points and hiking all the trails over again to make sure the maps were right I realized that it's done.
That picture was taken a few days before Christmas at the base of End Pinnacle. My Christmas present to myself was finishing the book. I have a few more touchups as I wait for final edits to come back to me and then I push send.
This time there are no delays due to wrong pages at the printers, no delays due to crazy last minute changes.
All I know and all I have are here, in these pages. It's time to start climbing again, Tanya
