To paraphrase a famous frog, “It’s not easy being indie.”


Actually, it’s not easy being any kind of writer/author, self-published or traditionally published, but wearing the many hats in every Indie wardrobe–author, marketer, social media manager, designer, newsletter editor … did I miss any?–presents special challenges. We’re talking about the kind of challenges that either drive you to drink,...

“You may be a serious writer if ….

10. your hard drive is littered with random notes and story ideas … but not nearly as littered as your head.

9. you keep pen and paper next to your bed. And in the glove compartment. And in your gym bag. Also on the rim of the bathtub.

8. a day without Roget’s Thesaurus is a day without sunshine.

7. your emotional landscape includes creativity, confidence, elation, frustration, and the occasional neurosis.

6. you’ve ever had to clean peanut butter and bread crumbs off your keyboard, because the work was going well, and you didn’t want to stop for lunch.

5. grammar and punctuation turn you on.

4. your interest in a new acquaintance is directly proportionate to his/her potential as a secondary character.

3. you’ve worn the white e, r, s, and t clean off your keyboard.

2. the search history on your web browser would raise red flags with the FBI, CIA, DEA, and mental health professionals everywhere.

1. you have stories to tell, and you just. Keep. Telling. Them.”

Robert Frost

“I still encourage anyone who feels at all compelled to write to do so. I just try to warn people who hope to get published that publication is not all it is cracked up to be. But writing is. Writing has so much to give, so much to teach, so many surprises. That thing you had to force yourself to do---the actual act of writing---turns out to be the best part. It's like discovering that while you thought you needed the tea ceremony for the caffeine, what you really needed was the tea ceremony. The act of writing turns out to be its own reward.”
Anne Lamott
