We’ve been busily working away on a writing section for the site but it’s taking a bit longer than expected. For you, the writer, not good news. I could tell you that you’re going to get your own gallery tab in the main nav, how you’ll be able to specify the extract of your work to show in search results, how you won’t ever have to touch that dirty “blog” again, how it’s going to revolutionize your very concept of the form. But words, words, words – you may be writers but I know you just want something tangible. Something you can see. Something that isn’t just hyberbolic marketing spin.
So today I’m going to tell you how you can get a sneak preview of what’s to come in the comfort of your own home (or, let’s be honest, work place).
You’re going to need sticky notes, scissors and a pen. If you’re like me this may require a trip to the stationery cupboard. Or an unattended desk (I recommend lunch time). (Don’t tell Xavier R).
Head on over to your mybubble art page, and print it out. You can do it on your screen if you’re really keen, but seriously, just print it. We’re going for tangible, right?
Now, take your print out and put a sticky note over anywhere it says “art” – just like whack-a-mole – and trim it with scissors to not cover up the whole page. Then write “writing” on it with the pen. Use the remainder of the sticky notes to cover up any thumbnails on the left hand side. This make take a while if you’ve uploaded heaps, but I didn’t think about that because I only have two things in my portfolio. Last step is to cross out anything that starts with “For Sale”, because you can’t sell writing works.
And that’s it!
Admire how you will manage your haiku! In the future. In the near future. Promise. If it’s not out next Thursday I’ll do something highly embarrassing. Suggest in comments.
