Page Turner- Sarah Br's Personal Project

Who has ever published a book before? Do you want to? Well I did!

For my personal project my goal is to write a short story book and publish it. I chose this because I’ve been wanting to write a book for a long time.

Process: Find out how to publish a book
Gain ideas for stories
Start writing stories
Find an editor
Finish writing
Edit double check
Print out things for project board
Do project board
Feel proud of what I’ve done

Skills I have gained: Some of the skills I’ve gained from this are connecting an ipad to a computer because when I had to preview the book before I published it, how to publish an ibook incase I ever wanted to make another one and I gained a wider range of vocabulary, thanks to the editor and how it hated having lots of I’s and the’s. Some new learning is that it takes a long time to start the publishing process because when it says ‘sign into itunes connect’ after you type in your username and password, it came up with ‘username not verified’. And after about 50 times I realised that I had an email that said ‘verify this account’ so that made things easier.

Reflection: Looking back on the journey I have come through I can’t believe I’ve managed to accomplish one of my dreams. The challenges were hard but I managed to overcome them without much stress. It’s going to be published in over 51 countries! I couldn’t believe it when I first found out. Something I could’ve improved on was taking photos of me on my computer doing the writing and publishing.
