Much excitement as I have now completed my chapbook. I have added this to Blurb as can be seen below
I have made it sellable and created a preview so the book can be viewed in its entirety. I have also ordered a hard copy to check it is correct if ordered. The link to the book is here: The Book of Lost Things
I also updated my profile page here.
Overall I think in the given time this has been well executed. What I have discovered is I can't write happy poetry but can write light-hearted stories. This was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and writing The Story of Milk I really wanted to complete her journey and I am tempted to actually write the rest of her story. I do think that I could have improved the language, syntax, and descriptions in places and if I did complete the entire story I would certainly go back and edit this again. The poetry I enjoyed writing despite my gloomy outpourings! I particularly enjoyed writing the villanelle as I do think this form works really well and is fun to play with. I have noticed mistakes already though and again proofreading and checking still needed to be carried out, again and again, to improve on this.
The photographs are a mixture of my own and images from stock sites but I have listed and credited all those that I could and I think the combination works quite well. I will edit and publish this again to fix a couple of the mistakes and when I see the published copy I am sure there will need to be more that could be fixed. The process here is important and it is worth the time it has taken. I am looking forward to writing my next one!
