This is a photoshop mock-up of what I am trying to do:
And that is just the homepage. If you are curious how I am going, the website is under construction at grahamclementsauthor.com. It needs to be complete in four weeks time.Those little arrows on the side of the slideshow took hours to figure out.
I have done alright in the course so far, I scrapped in a high distinction for the previous web design subject and a distinction for the other communications subject. Nice to get high marks, but that is not what I am doing the course for, I am doing it to learn to build websites from scratch using code.
I have been averaging 40 hours a week studying and after my two hours per day exercising and gardening there is not much time for writing. I do a few minutes every day. In about five weeks my subjects for my degree will change to more theory, so less of spending four hours trying to get an icon to brighten on a web page. Then I hope to have more time to write and read, I rarely have time to read for pleasure these days.
