One of my 'old' raw pics (lentil sprouts). But we're not allowed to use old pics for sofobomo.

In 2006 I challenged myself to nanowrimo (to write a 50,000 word book in a month). The result was Daisy Chain, which I wrote in about seven days (top speed stream-of-consciousness).

Recently I came across sofobomo, which is the photo version of nanowrimo. The challenge: you have 31 days to take 35 photos (easy enough), make a book of it and upload the book as a pdf. In between all of the other things I am currently doing, I am taking photos and creating a mini version of the raw recipe book I've been intending to make (and which many have been clamouring at me to do) for ages now. It will be a simple book, designed simply to start and finish the sofobomo challenge ... but the important thing is, it is a start - something that can be built upon later if/when I choose to.

Thanks to the course I've been doing (Masters Course in InDesign) - the last day of which is today - I now know how to design books and magazines. This helps in the creation of my book for sofobomo. I'm happy with how it's turning out.
