Indie Life: Keepin' it Real

Being indie is about being true to yourself and your story. It's about owning your characters and the choices they make. 

It's not about re-writing an ms every time a new agent rejection comes in. Or changing the ending (again) because it doesn't speak to this editor or that one. It's about telling the story you feel compelled to tell.

Not that feedback isn't a good thing, but there's this saying:

too many cooks in the kitchen. . . . 

Don't spoil your vision because of the whims of others. 
You will never be able to please everybody, so make sure you're happy, first.

Indie = Keepin' it Real.

Because being Indie doesn't have to mean going it alone.
