my favourite part of writing a book

I made a cover today. It’s my favourite part of writing a book. Although I love the process of pouring out the words and getting lost in the story, just as I hope my readers will, there is something magical about creating the cover.

I love the idea that when it goes up on the interweb, that image that I just put together on my computer will be the thing that everyone sees.

And what if that bolt of pure magic strikes and it becomes a raging success? What if it gets seen by millions of people? Well that is the joy of creating art. We never know what is happening behind the scenes, what cogs are turning in the universe, unbeknownst to us.

That is something quite amazing, and enough to make me keep creating….. even if it never happens.

I’ll keep trying.

Hope you like it.
