Today I started The Designing an Illustrated Book corse by Nigel French, which I only about 7 chapters long but one major problem I have is his voice, its rather fast paced but at the same time it also vary droopy and depressing…And for a Brit thats not a good thing, because the accent only adds to the boringness of the voice. Ive done lessons that Nigel has taught before and they weren’t that bad, but this time around there seems to be something off about the way its sounds.

Chapter one is called “Its All About Planing.” but it should have been called “Its All About Non-Explanatory Set Up.” because that whats its all about, I set up the Text Variables…

I also set up the color theme for the cookbook. All of which I feel could have been accomplished in one to two videos at the most, not 8 videos that were commonly 2m to 3m  with the longest being 5m 19s long. I finally made it to Chapter 2, but for some reason it first chapter wore me out…It felt overly complicated, for a task so simple…Im really wanting to do the Indesign CC 2015: EPUB Fundamentals… Sense volume 1 is some what near completion, and I’ve started to RE:write the extremely painful to read parts (The Original Start/1st person try) that I’ve been fix to read sense the start up of the start of the novel.
