My Personal SoFoBoMo status
Unlike last year, where I documented pretty much exposure I made for SoFoBoMo, this year I’ve been working away industriously on my own without saying much about it.
Here’s where I am…
I have the book layout mostly done, in InDesign. Much of my books layout is simply lifted from my effort last year. Unlike last year, where I put a lot of thought into the layout, this year I’m mostly interested in generating a book in time for the end of SoFoBoMo, without losing the momentum I have built up for the project overall. I like this empty theatre project, and I see it going on for a long time – much longer than the one month effort for SoFoBoMo.
So I have the book layout done (mostly), and I have a bunch of photos laid in the book, in four sections – one section each for the four theatres I’ve photographed so far. I’ve got roughly 100 photos in the book now. That’s way more than I want for the final book, so I’m busily working on editing that number down.
To top it off, I have another session at yet another theatre scheduled for Monday afternoon. That will give me one more section, and a slew of photographs to add.
Finally, I have a lot of text to write. This is not good news, because the writing part is going very slowly. So far I have written quite a lot, and then throw all but a very small fraction.
I started this whole project on May 18th. I still have plenty of time, but I’m planning on being finished with the book (but not the project) on 14th.
