2012 March 05 Today I think I’ve finalized my introductions to books 2 and 3. I hummed and hawed, postponed and labored for years in trying not to repeat myself in my introductions, and to make each book a standalone read like my first book. This obsession also contributed to my having what is commonly known as writers block. It finally dawned on me that I’ve deliberately written a trilogy, and so it stands to reason that some parts of the introduction need to be repeated so that the reader will know what is going on, and for the book makes sense.
I also transferred the text to my MS-Word documents and then did some re-editing to get them to fit into the page format that I had previously set up, as I didn’t want to go through that process again as it’s been a few years and I’ve forgotten how I did it. I only know that I had a hard time setting it up in the first place.
