No television, all work.

Howdy Folks!

This August, we’re going to do something a little different here at Indies Unlimited. Since some projects are backing up, and the minions have been working so hard, we’re going to go to a one-post schedule for the month. Don’t worry, your favorite minions will be working hard on awesome articles for you in September, so don’t go anywhere.

The admin will be working on the print version of the 2014 Flash Fiction Anthology and other projects during the month, so don’t think she’ll be sitting around eating bonbons and watching Oprah. We’re sending her where there is no television to make sure she gets these projects done. She’ll be hard at work in the charming little place we’ve reserved for her (pictured above). There will be no slacking!

In case you need to know what the schedule for August will look like, we’ve put together a chart for you. Here it is. No matter what you’re doing or where you are, we hope you’re having a good summer or winter and we thank you for being a part of the IU family.

Back To Work

penguinI’m back after a few weeks away from Indies Unlimited. Sure does feel good to be among friends, aspiring writers, already there writers and others again. While this site is not a “I went to the store yesterday” kind of blog site, I think it’s important to share with you what’s been happening in my life. In fact, it has a lot to do with writing.

For the past 16 years, I’ve worked for myself in many different areas: sales, marketing, freelance writing, social media community manager with a few other things sprinkled in. This past January, one of my clients made the proverbial “Offer I couldn’t refuse.” Continue reading “Back To Work”

Do You Schedule or Go With The Flow?

How does your brain work?

This week’s post is more of a question than anything else. I’ve written before about schedules and planning. I think it’s essential for helping you attain your goals. If your life is like mine, you’re doing about ten things at once. You might be attacking your WIP, editing your about-to-be-released masterpiece, working for the man, working for yourself and everything else that comes with life.

Here’s the question. Is it okay to blow up your schedule and plans? Personally, I think part of the power of goals and planning is the ability to alter and adjust as needed. Beyond that, I think you have to go with the flow sometimes. Continue reading “Do You Schedule or Go With The Flow?”
