The Indie Author Life

On her blog Peg Brantley wrote recently about self-publishing, allowing that when she was starting to write, she “never would have considered self-publishing .. I was going to be traditionally published and agented.”

After eight years, however, she relented and allowed herself to join the indie author life – with the promise to herself that she would “do it right.” And she offers other writers the benefit of her earned wisdom:

  • Write your first draft. (I love, love, love that Anne Lamott gave me permission to write a shitty first draft. Sometimes I forget that it really is okay, but that doesn’t mean she didn’t mean it—and wasn’t right.)
  • Let it sit for a day or two (while you continue to pat yourself on the back and celebrate), then begin your self-edits. This becomes another draft.
  • Whatever you’ve done up until now, do not skip this step. It’s time to find a fabulous editor to add to your team. Someone with a solid reputation in your genre. Don’t fool yourself into thinking you can achieve this step on your own.

There is much, much more – read Peg’s complete blog post here.
