I read somewhere, a tip for writers with a new WIP, particularly a novel, that you can make it more real by designing a cover for your book. So I tried it. Did the front, spine, back blurb and all.
This is kinda fun. Here are some covers made with affordable stock photos and PhotoDelux -- the really, really old (Windows 98) home version of PhotoShop (I still love it and use it a lot, even though it spits at XP now and then, and vice versa).
