REAL SECRETS_BOOK TRAILER

http://www.stockfreeimages.com/

Finished! Whew...that's how I felt after completing the book trailer for my latest release "Real Secrets." I started on Wednesday and just finished it tonight (Friday). I thought it would be as simple as putting together my selected pics and music, uploading it on Youtube and tada! Hmmpph...boy was I in for a surprise. There were times when Marvelous made me walk away from the project, to eat, sleep, and breathe so that I could come back a little clearer on what I wanted to do. The key to completion of a lengthy task is perseverance.

The picture selection process was not difficult because I had pre-selected the images that I wanted. However, trying to set the background and the layout of the wording was another issue within itself. While I did not encounter difficulty with selecting my wording; I did find selecting the proper layout to be time-consuming.

The music selection did not take as long as the other parts. Finding the song that clicked with me would not be a problem in the beginning. Listening to various tunes, I dismissed one after the other as they did not speak to me or the heart and soul of my book. The problem that arose was whenever I heard a song that I liked I wanted to hear it out completely, even if it did not convey the message of the book. This of course was time consuming also. But finally, when I had my song selection just right and narrowed it down to two choices, I listened to both repeatedly. My husband talked me through the process, enabling me to dig down deep within to understand how each song related to my book and spoke to my heart.

Those minute details can really become troublesome and time consuming. When I first began to write that's all that I wanted to do. I never understood until these latter years that there was so much more to it than just writing. As I always say the writing is the easy part...it's everything else that can become tedious and mind boggling. But in the end is it worth it? A thousand times over I will say YES! YES to infinity!
