So the synopsis for my book is completed, checked, changed, checked, tweaked, completed and checked again, and submitted. The publisher will format it for me and write the ‘about author’ part using the bullet points I added. I actually made a cup of tea and stared at my computer for a few minutes before clicking ‘send’, which sounds daft but that’s what a big thing this is for me.
Now, I can’t sit and do nothing while I wait for the sample spreads to be sent back to me, so I’m starting to make everything up, get the artwork done, write up the instructions, then, and this is a new thing for me, make them all up again to match the different stages.
I haven’t taken photos yet, I’ll do that when I’ve got a few made up.
The good part is, while working out some designs, I’ve led myself into yet more, which I will be putting into tutorials over the next few weeks, whenever I fancy a break from the book.
Meanwhile, the Anya earrings, Clara bracelet and necklace are all back on sale, I decided I didn’t need to use them.
Sitting at my work table this morning, I was hoping to get a better view of the solar eclipse. Instead, this is what I got. I had a better view online with the various live videos running. What a disappointment! The most annoying thing is, by 10.15am the cloud suddenly cleared and the sun came out…and shone all day. So for the duration of the eclipse, it just looked like it was going to rain any second.
I'm Teresa, the designer and writer of the tutorials you see, and a bead addict.
