You should look at this and then look up more things about the changes coming, especially if you’re an author or have great aspirations to become one someday. If it doesn’t play correctly go to this page for it: http://edudemic.com/2013/02/book-of-the-future/
After watching it I began wondering how such a book would be written by an author. Maybe they’ll make a special program for that, like some of the author/writing programs available. It could be interesting. And the future should be filled with more readers because more and more people are loving their gadgets.
Sorry I’ve been away. I’ve been working on several books at once. That’s how I do it. When something can’t move forward on one, I go to the next. I’m focusing on my anthology because my writer’s club is publishing theirs and it has several of my short stories in it. Since they’re not doing a copyright and I want to, I’ll have that part done by the time their book comes out. Mine will follow soon after…next month sometime. I’ll post it.
I finished my granddaughter’s book, but all kinds of technological problems have haunted me about it. I keep wanting to blog about what I’ve learned, and will soon, when I get a minute after its finally completed.
I have four proofs I’ve reviewing and an old story I wast editing for the anthology, but it will be a novella…too long for a short story. Another to miss the anthology pages is one I wrote in a day. It needs a couple of more chapters or parts. It’s for middle grade readers so I want it a little longer. I have another for my granddaughter, but the illustrations are still figments of my imagination at the moment.
It’s the same old problem I wrote about last time. I can’t finish one because another idea pops up. The story I most want to write is waiting in the wings for me to finish the ones with less to do for a finish.
Oh, but I finally found myself on the Library of Congress list – one out of three copyrighted books. It must take a long time to get those things cataloged.
Well, I did spend the day posting everything that came my way and a few I looked on the meteor in Russia today on my tumblr site~Menagerie. And I listened to the comments on the other “big” asteroid that did a flyby. It was a spacey day for sure. And not one of my family or friends on FB “liked” any of the postings I also put on my FB page about it. Very disheartening.
I did find this tidbit on the books of the future. What an interesting future it will be. We’ll just got to step lively through the muck on the way to tomorrow. Hope I’m up to it. I have a lot of editing to do. Did you ever notice that edit is a four letter word?
