As part of my nomination for the Liebster Award in recognition of my blog posts, I must identify eleven other blogs that I like or that provide good writing content. I’m going to list my first six here and my hope (fingers crossed) you will provide me with some other ideas. There are many excellent writing blogs out there. Some are designed for readers and some are for aspiring writers. Others are for seasoned writers. All share useful information.
I tend to read two kinds of blogs: 1) Those written for mystery and crime writers and 2) Those written for writing in general. The first type has all kinds of information needed to create suspense and mystery. They also provide good writing tips as well. The second category tends to deal with the craft of writing. The ones I listed here in both categories are the ones I read, tweet, and blog about on a regular basis.
- Kill Zone Authors. Seasoned crime writers rotate with all kinds of information for both published and unpublished writers. They also provide critiques to the first page submitted.
- Well-Storied.com Kristen Kieffer shares all kinds of writing advise, classes and workshops. Her blog focuses on the craft of writing and publishing.
- Daniela Uslan shares all kinds of content from a writer’s point of view. You’ll get everything from what’s it take to write a novel to how to find your voice.
- Live Write Thrive invites other writers to join the primary blogger, C.S. Lakin, to share their thoughts on writing. I had the pleasure of writing a guest blog on this amazing site.
- Ink and Quills a wonderfully refreshing blog by Kaitlin. Full of great ideas for sparking your writing.
- Tricia Goyer’s blog. She’s a mom with good writing advice.
Now, can you help with more suggestions?
Well, a few of my favorite blogs don’t qualify for the Liebster award because they have more than 1000 followers. So, you need to help me out. You can self-nominate! Can’t wait to hear your ideas.
