Blogs To Follow for writers.

Hey everyone,

I have been busy doing tons of research on blogging, and following blogs. I love following author blogs especially, and some of them are really helpful to me. Some I follow constantly, and I am keeping this post short. I am giving you the top five blogs I follow.

1.http://elspeth-itsamystery.blogspot.com/ Called It's a Mystery By: .
I just started following this recently because of the helpful insights she gives in the writing process. Like these articles: http://elspeth-itsamystery.blogspot.com/2011/08/10-questions-for-your-characters.html and  http://elspeth-itsamystery.blogspot.com/2011/08/10-questions-every-writer-asks.html.

2.http://blog.nathanbransford.com/ The blog By: Nathan Bransford because he gives really good advice to writers. Like these two articles: http://blog.nathanbransford.com/2011/07/why-you-are-receiving-rejections.html and http://blog.nathanbransford.com/2009/08/how-book-gets-published.html.

He writes insightful articles about the writing process. Querying, finding agents, and book promotions are a few of the topics, but there is a lot more that I find helpful on his blog.

3. http://www.rachellegardner.com/ By: Rachel Gardner.

The blog is run by a literary agent named Rachel Gardner, and it is very helpful to writers looking for literary agent advice. She gives tons of advice about getting published and finding an agent. some examples of the articles I find helpful are:
http://www.rachellegardner.com/2011/02/how-to-get-published/ and 

http://www.rachellegardner.com/2011/06/write-a-break-in-novel/. I read her blog articles every time a new one comes out. It is helpful to read about a blog from a literary agent that actively takes on clients.

4. Life on The Fringe By: Yasmine Galenorn
http://yasmine-galenorn.blogspot.com/

I love reading her books, and I became a fan of her blog before that. She is very successful in my eyes, and I hope to be as good as her one day. I love reading about her life because she gives insight into the world of the writing process. She is not afraid to write about sex either. A few of her insightful articles are:

And

I love coming back to the blog to see her latest posts, and there are more helpful articles. Just read and you will find out what I mean.

5. From Sarah, With Joy: By Sarah Allen 
http://fromsarahwithjoy.blogspot.com/

She is a writer, and I love reading her blog because she writes really good and helpful posts.  She is also very friendly, and she was nice enough to let me guest post on her blog. A few of the articles I find helpful are:

http://fromsarahwithjoy.blogspot.com/2011/08/what-inspires-you.html
And
http://fromsarahwithjoy.blogspot.com/2011/07/being-patient-with-yourself-is-hard.html

These are just a few of the good articles she has to offer, and there are plenty more where that came from. What about you what are your favorite blogs, and would you like me to review yours, and write about it?


Until next time,
