Sweet Success

My blogging has suffered during the past two months because of several new projects I had going. When I bought my iMac it came with a string of new programs, which I have promised to master. One of them is iMovie. Another goal was to convert a collection of forty-year old home movies to DVD. Right after Thanksgiving, I had the movies converted by Dave and Joe of Retired Fim Guys, and I  loaded them into iMovie.  Since then I have produced One Mile High, The Four Presidents of South Dakota, and The Tea Party Kids. These movies are a legacy of Busia Barb that I am leaving to my grandchildren. One Mile High won the First Award in 1970 from the South Side Cinema Club.

The fifteen minute long movies have a lively music background, and One Mile High has voice over narration. The super-eight movie quality is terrible compared to today’s video, but the story lines, music and narration make up for the lousy picture quality.

The second project, that consumed me involved publishing “Nightmares From Obama,” on Amazon Kindle as an eBook. Gladly, I can report that you can now buy and download the book to your computer, or to your Kindle reader from Amazon for $2.99. You may even get lucky and get it for free during the introduction period.

Publishing the eBook put a strain on the iMac. I learned that Amazon set up Kindle publishing on a Windows machine. In order to make my book happen, I switched back to using a PC. Most authors write books without graphics. Nightmares From Obama is a book of cartoons (47)and text. Learning how to format the manuscript to show the cartoons was a challenge to this aged brain.

Both projects have been on my list of goals for some time. The fact that I accomplished them both is what I consider a success. Success breeds desire to do more, and I now have plans for a dozen more movies, and a minimum of nine more eBooks.

  1. Congratulations!!! Seems as though the ‘productivity bug’ has bitten you. Job well done. Keep it up.

    • It is what happens when you write down your goals. You “see” the commitment you made to yourself and don’t want to fail. You will love “Tea Party Kids.”

  2. Grumpa, May The Lord Bless you in all that you do. Chuck
