A lighter look at the depressing side of being an indie author. Best served on Friday with a martini in hand.

The Ploughshares at Emerson College blog recently posted an amusing series of graphs titled “Depressing Graphs For Writers.” Did I say amusing? Well, it depends on your sense of humor and which phase of the literary arc you’re currently in, but it might help lighten your mood after a rough week of writer’s block or frustration that your latest has yet to land on the best seller list.

Here are a few gems to whet your appetite:
