Writing it was easy, but this going back and editing, formatting, expanding the thin parts, adding explanations where needed, compiling examples, zeroing in on helpful links and books for the recommended reading is tedious and seemingly endless.
I always like to hear how others do something I love to do. I’m not just telling how I have published and been paid for stories I got from the pages of my personal journal, but showing what famous authors have to say about the value of a journal.
I think best with a pen in my hand, so I write alot on the pages of my journal for this ebook. The handwritten pages become the first draft, because as I transcribe them into word, I edit, add, change, expand. It’s a way to edit that is more palatable that sitting over a manuscript with a red pen.
