Glued to my laptop as usual, but not doing any actual writing. Instead, I’m working, working, working on photo pages for Six Cats in My Kitchen. It was fun for a while but now it’s really becoming a chore. Finding photos, scanning them in, sizing, cropping, combining them in a pleasing (I hope) arrangement on each page — it all take loads of time, too much time.

Making matters worse, I am so disgusted with jpeg saves! It requires several saves to produce a finished page of photos, and with each save edges between colors become more blurred. I’ve tried cleaning up the edges, but it’s a colossal waste of time. They show up blurred again after the next save. Does anyone out there have a solution to this problem? I’m an amateur at this kind of thing and could really use some help.

I just want to be done with this mess and get back to writing. Feeling frustrated in Fort Worth!
