    What a wonderful post, and such a great way to pay it forward.

    The indie route requires a unique and special courage that too often goes unacknowledged.
    I’ve noticed that indie writers possess a special beauty, if they can help another writer, they do so without hesitation.
    Make an indie artist happy – I agree!
    Happy IWSG day!ReplyCancel

      I’ve noticed that too, Michelle. Such a great community!ReplyCancel

  • Lori L MacLaughlinDecember 3, 2014 - 9:28 AM

    Thank you for your lovely words! Going indie is a hard route, but I’m determined to follow my dream and become a published author. Best of luck to you with your dream!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaDecember 4, 2014 - 10:26 PM

      I’m right there with you, Lori! Thank you!ReplyCancel

    Writers are only type of artist. Creativity is a wonderful thing in all its forms. 🙂

    I love supporting indie artists too, and am one myself. Indie artists always seem the underdog because they are doing it all on their own with no big company to help. I think that makes success all the better.

    Also, you mentioned knitting. KNITTING FTW!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaDecember 4, 2014 - 10:25 PM

      I wish I had more time for knitting. Thanks for the visit, Patricia!ReplyCancel

    When we pay it forward, something/someone always comes along and gives us a boost. Best wishes.ReplyCancel

    • LucindaDecember 4, 2014 - 10:24 PM

      It’s a great way to remember that. Thanks, Diane!ReplyCancel

    What a great post. I love the cover of that book; the temple is gorgeous! I always support indie authors by reading an reviewing their books and stories whenever I have the opportunity. Thanks so much for participating this month. Eva, IWSG co-hostReplyCancel

    • LucindaDecember 4, 2014 - 10:23 PM

      Reviews are a great way to support indies! Thanks for stopping by, Lili!ReplyCancel

  • AnneDecember 4, 2014 - 8:18 AM

    That is some great advice, Lucinda. I have to keep that in mind. I usually try to remember to support indie artists, but it’s easy to forget to take that extra effort to think outside the box.ReplyCancel

    • LucindaDecember 4, 2014 - 10:22 PM

      I think it’s easy to get in the habit that no one else knows what you’re going through when, in reality, all indie artists go through it.ReplyCancel

  • Mary AalgaardDecember 4, 2014 - 9:25 AM

    I also love supporting indies! I try to buy local artist’s work, especially at Christmas time!!

      Mary, that’s a great thing to do as well. Thanks for the visit!ReplyCancel

    You have a wonderful attitude, Lucinda, and a noble heart. It’s really hard to make it in the writing business without the big machinery pushing you up. We need to support each other, encourage other writers, and be happy for each one of us who makes it.

    Best wishes!ReplyCancel

    Yes! So true. Put in the time, put in the effort. Don’t regret not working at achieving what you most want in your life. Go Girl! We’re behind you. You are not alone…ReplyCancel

      Thank you for the vote of confidence, Lisa!ReplyCancel

    Yup. Last week I was asked, what’s your best advice for somebody who’s writing their first novel? I said: “Write it.” 🙂ReplyCancel

  • Anna SimpsonNovember 5, 2014 - 8:21 AM

    I agree the more I write the better it reads, but I still have a long way to go 🙂

      I’m right there too, Anna. Still a long ways to go.ReplyCancel

  • Mary AalgaardNovember 5, 2014 - 10:02 AM

    I am also feeling the nudge to get going. Dream. Great. Do. Accomplish.

      We can’t blame anyone else when we don’t get it. Thanks, Mary!ReplyCancel

  • JessNovember 5, 2014 - 11:25 AM

    Really love this! Once I “get into” the work, I love it too, it’s actually making myself sit down and do it that hurts. 🙂ReplyCancel

    • LucindaNovember 6, 2014 - 8:38 PM

      Sometimes we do the little things that even sabotage ourselves. Thanks for the comment, Jess!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle WallaceNovember 5, 2014 - 12:41 PM

    Your dream won’t work unless you do…great attitude!
    Happy Writing!ReplyCancel

  • Diane BurtonNovember 5, 2014 - 2:09 PM

    Well said, Lucinda. Dreams are great, but only work and perseverance can make them come true. Best wishes.ReplyCancel

    • LucindaNovember 6, 2014 - 8:35 PM

      Work and perseverance are part of the journey to the dream. Thanks, Diane!ReplyCancel

  • Charity BradfordNovember 5, 2014 - 2:22 PM

    This is so true! I just wish the rest of the world would leave me alone so I could work. 🙂 Good luck!ReplyCancel

  • Georgina MoralesNovember 5, 2014 - 9:06 PM

    I actually enjoy the re-writing process. For me, it’s a lot easier to edit than to write that first draft. I think of the process as the work of a jeweller in his most prized diamond. Each expert cut is meant to show a new facet on the stone, to make it shine even brighter. My problem comes when realizing it is time to stop. I can fix a story until the end of time, but there’s a point when you’re probably doing more harm than good. If only it were that easy to know…

    Good luck with the re-writing!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaNovember 6, 2014 - 8:18 PM

      I have a hard time writing the first draft too, Georgina. But these rewrites are almost like starting from scratch, and that’s why it’s taking me longer. Thanks for the visit!ReplyCancel

  • Shannon LawrenceNovember 5, 2014 - 11:28 PM

    That’s incredibly true. I’m working at working. Good luck to everyone as they work on their dreams!ReplyCancel

    • LucindaNovember 6, 2014 - 8:06 PM

      Thank you, Shannon! That’s how I feel sometimes, just working at working.ReplyCancel

  • AnneNovember 6, 2014 - 6:03 AM

    That is so true Lucinda. Keep at it! And thanks for sharing.ReplyCancel
