Preserving the Past

This tiny little corner of the world, this place where feelings are tapped into words, ideas find a place to roost, creativity stretches mine. It has been my journey through the good, the bad and the ugly. It is a record of the happiest and saddest times of my life. It chronicles the constant change that has been my life. It is me.

The writings herewith in are cherished and some even border on sacred. I bared my mind, heart and soul in these writings. Yet, this is the only place they existed. I had done nothing to preserve this part of me....that is until recently.

                  Lucy's Logic....the book

I used a free downloaded program called Blurb (program is free, finished books are not). I was able to import all of my writings and pictures directly from Blogspot, then pick and choose the ones I wanted to include in my book. Blurb allows you to format your pages, font, size etc. to get just the look you want. 

There was a small learning curve, (directions? Who reads those?) and lots of trial and error. But ultimately I ended up with exactly what I wanted. A book that preserves my journey and a way to share it with others. 

I  dedicated this labor of love to my children and gave them each a copy. For my journey is theirs as well and perhaps coming along with me may let them know me just a bit better.

I highly recommend, in order to preserve what you write, you check this out. I am sure there are other programs you can use to create your book. I liked Blurb because of the import capability. Let me know how you fair.....
