Tuesday Poems For #Writers #Inspiration #WritingCommunity – To Indie or Not Indie?

But I Smile Anyway...

Another poem inspired by Lucy of Blonde Write More! Thinking about the choices we make regarding publishing!

Could I do it
on my own?
Could I afford it?
Take a loan?

Push myself to

Teach myself to

Formatting for
e-books
Seeing how the
inside looks

Do I need
a paperback?
Should it be seen
upon a rack?

Or do I try
submitting?
Find an agent
who is fitting?

A person who
can take care
Find me a deal
that's just and fair

Get me published
traditionally
What others think is
'properly'

So my books will
sell in shops
And book charts?
I could hit the tops!

Both are hard
Both need your book
Both need your time
Both need a hook

Yet with one 
you sell your soul
Trying to achieve
your only goal

And the other
it's up to you
How much effort 
you put in…
