Now that I finally managed to invest in the software I need to create flipbooks – which is the way I want my books to be read, I’ve also managed to make my very first flipbook. I am so proud! 😀 And it looks so bloody good – I couldn’t be happier.
The Self which wasn’t mine was written as part of my journey of exploring and finding that Self. It has most definitely brought me closer to being true to myself, and although I am sorry that especially my dad had to die for that to happen, I am also immensely grateful.
I think so too, but I am of course partial.
In short; the book takes you through some of my experiences as a child, as a teenager and a younger adult, trying to function in the middle of my parents who were extreme on the opposite sides of normal. The result of it was me being unable to create a sense of Self.
#TSWWM – the hashtag I’m using when talking or writing about the book. This is the first book I’ve written, and it was done so out of necessity. It is deeply personal. It’s not very pleasant to read, but the reaction I’ve had from those who’ve read it is that it’s bloody awesome.
On the not-so-personal side, I am equally proud of myself that I managed to get this done. The book itself was a pain in the ass writing. That took blood, sweat and tears, that’s for sure. But the creation of the actual book; choosing photographs and illustrations, doing the layout, translating it from swedish to english (since I wrote in swedish originally) – bloody hell.
So yeah, I’m good. Actually, I rock. 😀
Especially since I also managed to get the technical stuff together when it comes to actually purchasing the flipbook. I haven’t tried it for myself yet, so if anyone happens to buy it before I try it out, please let me know if it works properly. Thanks in advance.
The best part of this is; now I have no excuse whatsoever not to keep writing books. I paid money for the creation of flipbooks, and I’d really like to get them back.
