I’m a rather single-minded person, and by that, I mean that I have trouble focusing on one thing at a time. My daughter finds it impossible to not do at least two things at once—she has to have noi…

Are you tired of everyone telling you not to work in these troubled times? Here are some thoughts on the matter that might help... https://meredithbond.com/keep-writing/

Almost every day my Facebook feed and my blog list on Feedly have new articles telling me that “it’s okay if you aren’t able to work/focus/write”. Don’t expect too much of yourself in these times. …

I’ve been learning a good deal recently about writing journal and writing planners. There’s a difference! A planner is a book where you have pre-designed organizing tools, like in my favorite Ultim…

Summer is hard. Life is hard. There are so many things distracting us from working, from writing. Personally, I’ve been traveling and readjusting to being back in the US (we’re just here for one mo…

Classifying Yourself

Last week I told you all about this cool way players of Dungeons & Dragons classify their characters based on how well they follow laws or rules (lawful/neutral/chaotic) and what sort of person…

Classifying Your Characters

I've been very silly and haven't been posting links to my blog here. That's going to end!
Here is last week's blog post. Lovers of D&D will get it right away, everyone else will learn something new and interesting. :-)
I blog every Sunday on writing and self-publishing topics. https://meredithbond.com/classifying-your-characters/

Involved in all this complication is a really interesting way of classifying a person based on how law abiding they are (lawful, neutral, or chaotic) and what sort of person they are in general (go…

I've been having great fun embedding a font to use in the drop caps. It's a bit trickier than just using a font in a heading style, but so worth it! Anyone want me to post the instructions on how to do it? I'd be happy to share!

Well, I didn't manage to get my beginning Jutoh video created and up on Youtube as I'd planned, and I'm very sorry for that. I will do my best to get that done this week--although it might be a little trickier with my children at home, but they can be quiet, so I'll give it a shot. Once it's up, I'll be sure to tell you all.
In the meantime, a very happy holiday to all!

Do you know the difference between page breaks and section breaks? What about when to use each?
Use page breaks in your Smashwords formatting and when preparing your document for Jutoh; section breaks only go into your CreateSpace document after you've copied your book into the template (or adjusted the page size to the size of the book you want).

Have you been wanting to learn how to format with Jutoh? Now you can! I've got a new course where I show you, step-by-step, how to prepare you document, import it into Jutoh and then format it as an epub and mobi file.
I cover basic formatting, conditional formatting so you can create a different book for each vendor, and embedding pictures and fonts.
