Weekly Photo Challenge: Create; How blogging has made books happen, with multimedia.


Blogging can create many opportunities for creativity!

Blogging and bloggers originally gave me the incentive to get my fantasy novels published, and told me how.

Blogging has also linked me with a writer in USA for a poetry collaboration.  

This picture, however, is of a current project which shows a small part of a creation using blogging connections. The text of my little series for very young readers has been illustrated by a blogger in Spain, and is to be be published through a blogger in Pretoria

What you see here has gone through a few evolutions. The pictures on the page started as paintings in Spain, and photos were taken of those to email to me for combining with the text. Then the computer file page had to go back to the photo format you see here, so as to go on a DVD with the orchestral music which I am writing for each character and scene. These will be an alternative or add-on to the printed versions of the books.

So far, I have completed the writing and compilation of the five books but am only one-and-a-half books into the music and DVD side.
