As an Indie Author how are you spending your summer? Is it a time of year when you go for lighter reads? Do you take advantage of the warm weather and do more of your writing outdoors? I spend more time outdoors but still enjoy curling up on the couch and settling into a good book. However you’re spending your time, enjoy the warm months and let your muse entice you to create, and even expand into new genres or disciplines.
Indie Author Weekly Roundup
This week I consciously limited the Indie Author Weekly Roundup to four posts. I think you’ll learn a lot from the following selection.
If you only read one post, read this one:
Metadata Tools by Elizabeth S. Craig: “When I first heard about metadata, it sounded like the most boring (and confusing) thing I’d ever heard of. I became curious as I continued hearing more and more about it. I attended a couple of talks on metadata at a couple of different conferences. I read slideshows on it from conferences I hadn’t attended.”
Note: I’ve been more serious about metadata of late as well. I took a course by Jane Friedman, offered by Writer’s Digest, and she also discussed metadata. I, too, always thought that metadata was this huge subject that I could never penetrate or understand. Jane made it easy to understand and the posts that Elizabeth mentions here are also helpful.
