This last year has been a not so great time for me. I’ve spent a lot of time focusing on family (often at the expense of my writing) while my family minimizes my written work and suggests with full candor that I would be better off doing literally anything else. I might be a stone cold bitch that habitually writes about getting away with murder but that still hurts, a lot.
Thankfully other writers are always there to remind me that awful as that is, it’s also kind of normal. We all have to fight for the time and space to do that thing that no one else really understands and seems largely composed of staring at blank walls from time to time. And we’re all here to help each other out and deepen our craft as we go.
So let’s do a relink of some of the more visited posts on my blog that are full of helpful tips for other struggling Indie Authors out there.
Starting with the most important step:
- The writing process
- Wallow in your novel & Individual Timelines/Outlines
- Write the damn thing
- Re-outline, reorder, rewrite
- Export Draft
Once you’ve got that you should update your series “bible” before tackling the beast that is formatting for paperback.
- Chapter Headers
- Getting Fancy
- Paperback Book Cover Design
- The Dreaded Page Number
- Doting Your I’s and Crossing Your T’s
There you go Indies, a recap of everything that I’ve written on writing in this digital era that should prove useful to anyone looking for the information.
