The act or process of closing something. My time at Propel has felt short. Every minute of writing and editing finally coming to a close as the hard copy of my book is being sent to publishing. Though the semester is ending, I feel extremely accomplished with a book of my very own to close off my year.
Still Growing is my take on a boy’s life growing up in Winnipeg. My book will be hardcover and matte, giving a very modern feel. My project is in its last stages where it is waiting to be sent off to publishing. I am currently done all of the writing pieces and sent them through several rounds of feedback. I have finished all the formatting in BookWright by Blurb.com which will take approximately two to four weeks for binding and delivery. In the end, I will have a physical copy of Still Growing for final presentations. I chose to publish a book this year to showcase my love for writing and photography; so I said, why not mix them both?
Overall, Propel has been an interesting experience for me. After living through very structured schooling my whole life, I never imagined something like this. I struggled to adjust at first and accept the fact that I was at a new school, but I persevered. I stuck with it and enjoyed every minute of my Journey. A wise man once said don’t stop believing and I have to say, the progress in my writing has been substantial. Though this is my final blog post this semester, I have learnt so much and will take everything back with me to my home school. I want to thank everyone who made my experience possible; people who made Still Growing possible. This semester officially has its closure. Thank you for reading.
Yours in writing,
