Working on an eBook as a self-publisher is therapy. Using Sigil, Calibre, LibreOffice, these three open source tools are amazing. Writing is therapeutic! So far, the progress is going very well. I’m managing backup copies including progress with a bulleted list of notes. Learning to use the tools, tips, and features is good for my soul. My preference was Sigil and Calibre both at the same time. Using both programs made the learning curve most difficult, so I had to refrain for a few months.
The book is about self-help therapy, of course. Coping with an unlovable person is a primary topic. This involves frustration, grief, insomnia and responsibility to handle my own priorities. For instance, if it’s 11:00 pm and I have plans tomorrow then lowering the lighting early evening encourages rest. Breaking from the usual patterns, the mere thought of getting up early enhances sleep. During the daytime, a demand for power naps is crucial.
What writing therapy is actually doing is providing inspiration to finish projects: WiP (Works in Progress).
