Formatting for Kindle

Thursday, February 21, 2013
I have written an e-book for Kindle.  It's a book of very short and simple writing prompts for writers.  At the moment, it's 365 writing prompts (obviously, my idea was one for every day). I have bought numerous writing prompt books and they are always filled with all sorts of plots and story starters giving a good amount of detail.  The thing I don't like about these books is that the prompts offer too much detail and leave very little to the imagination.  My book will be the other extreme.  It will give very simple and short opening lines that will leave the details to the writer.
Ok that said, I wrote the book and today, I started formatting it for Kindle.  I'm fried.  I should have researched this before finishing my first draft because I have each prompt on a separate page (I hate writing prompts books that just lump the prompts into a numbered list - it doesn't look inspiring to me - the prompt on an empty page shows so much room for creativity).  I've given myself quite a headache and at the moment, I want to throw my laptop out the window!
I may get my head around it in 10 minutes time and finish the formatting in 20 minutes, but right now, I'm feeling overwhelmed and really frustrated!
