5B2021* Journal, Issue #5 – Let’s Write Five Books! – Medium

Writing is only part of the project I’ve set out to tackle this year. I need to write, and then I need to edit. And when that’s all done, I need to actually design and publish physical artefects. And in the past, it’s the publishing bit that takes a lot more effort than I bargained for.
So I recently drag and dropped a giant un-edited manuscript of words into Blurb.com’s app called Bookwright (pictured below), hit publish, and a week later a real book arrived in the mail.
The spacing, typography, sizing, and positioning are all just as wrong as I assumed they would be. But now I have a physical copy to compare against professionally designed books so I can see what sorts of changes I need to make. Onward!
