I've been learning InDesign, which I need for my book cover design course, and cursing it profusely because or despite having watched several tutorials. Its all a bit overwhelming.
And I say that as someone who likes learning new things. And ironically, as someone who used to do magazine design back in the day with QuarkXpress and Adobe Pagemaker. Gosh that probably ages me.
These last few weeks have been spent compiling a list of things I have to do to get my book out. Beside the cover design, there's also the interior layout, which I'm using Vellum to do. Then there's learning about copyright, another book to read. In addition, to all that there's the marketing plan, which is just about the most uncomfortable thing I'm having to get to grips with.
All of this has gotten in the way of doing much of anything else. Hence the lack of updates. Still, if you want to read the piece I wrote about Gerry Anderson's Fireball XL5 you can go here.
