and with all this writing malarkey i have learnt these past few weeks that it would appear i am an old stick in the mud, a person who does not want to keep up with the times, someone who does eschew the modern world.
now don’t get me wrong lovelies i does love the interwebby and i love the benefits the lovely internetty thing brings me i love my art programmes and the fact i can sit in bed and write books on my netbook. So as you can see i am embracing quite a lot of the modern world but writing as much as it brings me pleasure and yes i love it it also brings with it something i really do not like; ebooks.
now how terrible is it of me to say that? well quite terrible as i have quite a long kindle list on my pc and netbook and i love reading ebooks, and this is the crunch i do not like writing ebooks. See nasty author kizzy lee does not like writing ebooks. sigh. Nope it is the formatting, for one thing i hate formatting its like being stuck in the most restrictive word processing hell ever. Worse than when i was at college doing nursey stuff. yup i once trained as a nurse i was pretty bad at the ethics though sure i have mentioned in the past ^_^ i was all soul and heart but apparently nurses are not allowed that they have to put all their compassion away and treat no matter what very commendable; i just couldn’t do it, found myself saving children against parents wishes etc but that’s me, now back to the whole ebooks thing and after the formatting we have the whole restrictions thing.
god i hate restrictions, told you i was born a rebel without a cause, or more correctly i was born a rebel who will find many causes and my latest being i shall write in any style i want!, see i am a natural born artist i cannot help myself, i see a fancy font i want to use it, i see little curlicue fancy things i want to use them, i want to paint pictures and include them in my book, i already refuse to follow the so called rules of writing novels etc and now i refuse all rules governing ebooks, yes i refuse, and shall strike until either ebooks let me format as i want, fancy fonts and all, or just never do ebooks, i have in fact always had the first three of my books available on smashwords as many of you know and out of respect to smashwords and the fact they were the first and most helpful user friendly agent i met on my writing ladder to success, theirs is the only place my first three ebooks shall ever appear, now after much stress on my part i finally agreed to make in temero humus available through amazon kindle and it taught me that was it, no matter what anyone says i will never do another.
My books from in temero humus onwards are all only print and shall remain that way; through amazon in print, because that’s the way i like it. i like fancy fonts so there ….you kind of have to imagine me sticking my tongue out rather childlike at this point ^_^ but only if you want to ^_^
have a wonderful day my friends and don’t do stuff you don’t want to do ^_^ unless you have to because it’s important or someone’s life depends on it or your mum will get annoyed but as long as it is ok then don’t do stuff you don’t want to do ^_^ ok best go do some sewing now ^_^
