1) I am supposed to be writing. I am actually in the middle of a very *spoilery* scene in FOREVER.
2) I already have a debut cover. In fact, my debut had two of them. I don't really need to design another.
3) I took this way too seriously.
4) This breaks about every single rule that I have ever written about not procrastinating.
5) Okay, so it was fun.
Here it is:
CREATE YOUR DEBUT YA COVER
1 – Go to “Fake Name Generator” or click
The name that appears is your author name.
2 – Go to “Random Word Generator” or click
The word listed under “Random Verb” is your title.
3 – Go to “FlickrCC” or click
Type your title into the search box. The first photo that contains a person is your cover.
Picnik, or similar to put it all together. Be sure to crop and/or zoom in.
4 – Use Photoshop,
5 – Post it to your site along with this text.
And here is mine. Yes, I was a child of the 80s and read a lot of Crichton, what's your point?
I'm far too proud of the little metro map off to the side there.
I didn't realize at first that I was supposed to type into the search engine the fake name of my fake novel at first when I randomly generated an image. So I was a bit appalled that I pulled 'break' and then the first photo with a person was a little girl in a pretty blue dress. I thought it was a sign from the heavens that I should be working.
Luckily, I instead pulled a photo of a guy threatening a daffy duck mug with a gun. Far more appropriate. Hey, did you notice that it's a one word title? So feasibly this novel could be in my future. ;p
Bah, my conscious is calling. Says something about writing a novel . . .
