What Does It Really Mean To Be A Self-Published Author?

I’ve written a blog post or two about self-publishing and the tasks that indie authors have to deal with on a daily basis. A couple of days ago I came across Wordle. Now, I’ve seen Wordle creations before, but had no idea how people made them or what they were called. Now, I do and it got me to wondering: What would a Wordle look like if I grouped all of the words that I associate with being an indie author into one Wordle? So, I went to work. I made a list including the following factors:

  • Characteristics of an author;
  • Tasks that indie authors have to do on their own (with little or no help from others);
  • Challenges that indie authors face from the outside world (as well as ones indie authors create on their own); and
  • Creative process.

This is what I came up with:

An Indie Author's Journey

Every author has their own personal experiences and ideas about what it means to be an indie. Have you tried to create a Wordle based on your own experiences as an indie author? How would it look? Or do you have any words that you would add to my Wordle creation? Share below in the comment field.

If you like my Wordle, then feel free to share it with others.
