I've been using the Gnome 3 desktop this week on the laptop. The more I use it the more comfortable it's becoming for me. I like the minimal interface it's useful on a small, 13" screen.

Stay in the upper middle and get the analytical facts. Lean to far to the left or right and you're risking fake news or news so watered down and skewed that it's useless. Get out of your silos!

The shelf of completed ARC paperbacks. I have two more books coming out this year which will put me at eleven total written novels. I'm currently writing my 12th novel and will write number 13 this summer.

Coming in March... Corvette. 

Tonight I explored the new KDP ebook and paperback service from Amazon. They way they made it sound, they would would let you make paperbacks out of your ebooks. Truth is, you have to upload a manuscript, you can't just use your ebook text. It's really just CreateSpace from the KDP control panel.

For me, the final product IS the ebook, not my manuscript. So I still have to reverse the process from ebook to manuscript to have KDP make my novel into a paperback. Sigh.

It's still a whole lot easier to do than getting a book interior designer, so I will probably start making paperbacks of all my novels. It just might take me a while.

Today's writing sprint was not very productive. But I'm ready to start a fresh chapter tomorrow.
