Whelp, it took a little bit of crying, but I think I finally figured out how to format my book so that createspace will accept it. I’ve had to add these new borders; I opted to make them colorful. I think they look pretty snazzy.
I had attempted to contact my old graphic design professor. He emailed me back pronto, but after I gave him the specifications that I needed for margins and whatnot, I just have this feeling he’s not going to email me back. Maybe he’s busy with the holiday. Maybe it went into his spam folder. Maybe he doesn’t care. Whatever. I think I’ve got it now.
It was a long, hard day. Work was so monotonous, for some reason I couldn’t comprehend. I usually love working. I think my energy was a little stagnant. I’ve been waking up congested, and with a lack of purpose since my book has lost momentum.
And I’m a little homesick. And when I’m homesick I latch on to my boyfriend. He’s the only person I’m ever vulnerable around. (I should really work on making more friends so he doesn’t have to bear the brunt of it.) He was out of town these past couple days for his job. He’s at a friend’s tonight. He works hard and deserves to blow off some steam. It’s also not his fault I’m needy, but I’m still took it personally, even if it wasn’t rational. (You and I are both glad to know I didn’t voice my personal affront. I mean, I’m completely fine right now.) Who wants to hang out with a red, poofy faced girlfriend, frustrated at her computer, when you could drink a cool refreshing beer with your friends? Mmmmm… I should drink a beer right now. That would make me feel a lot better.
I probably just need some sleep. I mean, I was just staring at a trial version of InDesign, weeping. I’m not normally a person who weeps.
But I think I’ve got it figured out now. Good night, World!
