The time has come…

November 28, 2011 at 12:26 pm (Day to day updates of my project research and development)

For me to photocopy all my carefully taken notes of my research and stick them up all over the walls in my house! Then, out come the colour stickers and post it notes….then comes the biggy, I will start writing this book…and it shall be great! Hope so anyway, but I’ve got a good feeling about it! Also, I’ve posted up my notes on two more books I’ve read (boring books may I add with only snippets of information that I want to refer to in mine) so if anyone wants to take a look, be my guest!

Also will be uploading some more of my markmaking to show what my rough ideas are to date on the illustration style I want for this book, stay tuned!

Technology and media ppt

I think this ppt certainly has alot more visual quality than my last one. I feel I’ve answered the questions well enough and am confident on where I’m taking this project…happy days!

This time plan thing is working well!

November 24, 2011 at 4:39 pm (Day to day updates of my project research and development)

Now, I balance my time better between note-taking, preparing power- points, watching research documentaries, mark making and everything else in between! I can really feel this project beginning to take shape…research takes such a  lot of time and organising! I’ll upload my new power-point due for next Tuesday if anyone wants a sneaky peek! Just click into my power-points category.

My mind has been considerably sharpened today!

November 23, 2011 at 8:59 pm (Day to day updates of my project research and development)

I’ve made a start on planning out how and when I’ll be writing, designing and basically putting together this book. Yesterday after class, I felt overwhelmed but today, after looking over all the work I’ve done to date, I have most of the research I’ll want for this project gathered. At the moment I’m processing that research into personal notes and placing those notes on a wall so I can start planning the sections of the book and the essential information for the final piece. This, I feel will be the cornerstone of my entire project becoming a success. From there I can branch out on the platforms for it; eBooks, iphone apps, poster campaigns, audio piece, video etc…

Okay folks, here’s the plan…

November 16, 2011 at 12:06 pm (Day to day updates of my project research and development)

I’ve alot I want to do today. I’ve been watching lots of amazing new documentaries, I’ve taken important notes on each one and will be posting them under each series. I’m taking personal notes on all my pages to create a wall of evolutionary history with them pinned up in different areas. This I hope, will help me to structure my book and see the information before me. I’m in the mood for mark making, I’ll post up what I’ve done to date later today…wish me luck! (phew!)

aaaghhh! Richard Dawkins…my nemesis!

November 15, 2011 at 9:57 am (Day to day updates of my project research and development)

He has released a new book ‘The magic of reality’…with lovely illustrations and clever typography! He must have heard me talking about him last week as the competition, and beat me to it!

Despite the shock, I’m still confident that my ebook has a different audience. Mine deals with evolution as a whole…not just a few interesting questions and I’m not in competition with him in the hardback publishing market, as he would win, hands down because of his celebrity profile…THE SHOW MUST GO ON!
