Indie Life/Writing Wibbles

Welcome, Indie Lifers, to the free-range insane asylum! Don’t forget to hit the linky at the end, and see what other indies have to say about their travails, triumphs, and tips this month.

It’s summer, and summer means vacation! Vacation means getting away from work stuff, and sometimes family and life stuff. If you’re lucky, you can turn off your writing brain for a while—because, whether you’re making a living at this or just getting started, this is your work, right?

So when it’s time for a break, take that break. Keep a notebook in case you need to remember something, but give your Muse a rest.

(And yes, I’m posting this while on vacation.)

Thanks for reading, and check out some of the other Indie Life writers this week!


  1. Turning off my writing brain is so hard, even on vacation. I wish you the best of luck with it though and hope you have a great time!

  2. Hope your vacation is fun. I don't think I've succeeded in turning off the writing part of my brain. No matter what it's always going. I need a switch. ;)

  3. I'm commenting while about to go on vacation, so good luck!

  4. I needed to hear this, so thank you! Breaks are super important, and I haven't taken enough in recent months. I lowered my word count goal for the summer, so I only need to write a couple of days a week for the next couple of months. Definitely good for me. :)


Comments are welcome, and they don't have to be complimentary. I delete spam on sight, but that's pretty much it for moderation. Long off-topic rants or unconstructive flamage are also candidates for deletion but I haven’t seen any of that so far.

I have comment moderation on for posts over a week old, but that’s so I’ll see them.
