Coding a novel isn’t the scary thing I thought it was. If anything it is just tedious… or at least the way I am going about it is. You see I chose to code a 50,000 word poem rather than a prose piece. Poems require more html formatting which can be tedious. I also decided to pull a well known poem from the internet that rhymes. The rhymes create a struggle because I don’t want to mess with the rhymes in each stanza, but I still want to change the lines enough to make the final poem my own. That requires changing words in the beginning and middle of the lines only, which sometimes there aren’t sufficient words to change. It’s a struggle that I hope pays off in the end.
P.S. commas in coding are a pain in my @$$
