This month is heavy on the tech and programming side of indie, but if you're more of an indie writer, you might be interested in Annie Mueller's course on prolific non-fiction writing. (Or if you're an indie developer, maybe you want to crank out blog posts faster to promote your product and get more incoming traffic.)
Write More Words, Faster launches tomorrow, with pay-what-you-choose price tiers. I'm looking forward to this one, especially because I think Annie's been reading my mind, or hacked into my business metrics dashboard and realized how much content I need to crank out every month to hit business goals.
What's On Next Month:
