Dear Fellow Writers

Dear Fellow Writers,

Here’s a list of the things we do as independent authors:

-write our books
-edit our books
-publish our books
-promote our books
-attend book signings
-attend book talks
-visit book clubs
-enter writing contests
-support other indie authors
-build an author platform
-curate social media posts
-network with others
-create a podcast
-join a writing group
-learn photography
-begin a new story
-start all over

In addition, we also read a lot. And some of us have full-time and/or part-time jobs.

Fellow writers, what am I missing?
There’s so much that we do.
The list is long, and quite diverse,
But I’m sure I forgot a few.
When we decide to write our books
We give it all we’ve got.
We persevere and dig down deep
A love for books is sought.


Keep writing,



Dear Fellow Writers
