Hello Indie Lifers! 

1. Welcome to another month of learning and sharing along with other Indie authors. Maybe some of you don't know it but we started a newsletter that goes out the weekend before Indie Life has a reminder. I also try and include a post that struck a chord with me or helpful links! So if you haven't joined it's the time!

**If you'd like a monthly reminder please sign up for the Indie Life Newsletter!**

2. While shopping for a sketching app on my iPad for my son, I decided to search for writing apps - big mistake! There are so many cool ones out there. I wanted to share the one I did choose for brainstorming purposes. It's called Mindmeister and I love it. It's creating a visual map but I can also add notes and branch off just as if I were using a pencil and paper.

Check out the Mindmeister app.

Have you signed up for the Indie Life newsletter yet? Do you have any cool writerly apps that you love?


  1. I'm signed up for the newsletter. :) I'd never remember which day is indie life without it.

  2. I write the date of the Indie Life blog hop and the IWSG blog hop on my calendar, as well as the Christian Science Fiction and Fantasy blog tour when I'm participating. Cause I look at my calendar more than I do my email which is generally 99.99% spam.

  3. I've kinda been absent from the Indie Life scene since my husband was put on hospice care. Too many interruptions that are becoming the daily norm and not conducive to blogging. Sorry y'all.

  4. Don't worry about it J.L.! We understand. :)

    I wouldn't remember unless I put it on my desktop calendar!

  5. Sounds like a cool mindmapping app!
