Writing and world building aren’t the only fun you can have while crafting a story. It’s funny. I never would’ve gotten into Photoshop if I hadn’t jumped out of my comfort zone and went the non-traditional route to publish my stories. I didn’t think about Photoshop until I realized it’d be cheaper to make my own book images.
I’m not saying the non-traditional route is the way to go. Try jumping out of your comfort zone once in a while. You never know what you’ll discover.
Since I started selling my books, I stopped seeing writing as fun. It’s not torture, either. It’s just something I do. I still love world building. For actual writing, I’ve been working out of habit. I’ve been writing so long that I can’t stop even if I wanted to.
It’s nice to find something else in this process that I enjoy.
I’ve been in a rush to finish all my book images before I go home for Christmas. Won’t be bringing my desktop with me. I’ll only have Photoshop on a computer that can’t handle it.
I mentioned before that I’m including a family tree in each book. Here’s the one from The Sciell.
