I admit it. I’ve been procrastinating. Designing a book cover has been on my to-do list; I’ve even chosen the photos and rough drafted it out in my head. I’ve got approximated sizes. I’ve been stalling because I know the that program I need to do this, Scribus, will be another big learning curve.
Scribus is an open source desktop publishing program. An Ubuntu version is available from the Ubuntu repositories, so that’s what I have installed. I’ve discovered, however, that it is not terribly intuitive, and I haven’t set aside the time to go through the learning process step by step.
Not that there haven’t been plenty of other things that need doing, but I think I’ve put it off long enough. It’s time to go through a basic tutorial, become familiar with it, and get started.
Wish me good providence.
