Sometimes, writing a blog can be difficult because you just don’t have anything interesting to say.
That usually doesn’t stop me, mind – but today, having done no writing or editing (instead have been reading, doing errands and lunching with my Mum and Sister) I don’t really have any words – of wisdom or otherwise.
As a consolation, or rather a reward given the content, I’m referring you on to some of my favourite blogs about writing today. If you haven’t already got these on your favourites list, best get ready to add them!
Kristen Lamb’s Blog
A great blog on Kristen’s own experience as a writer and user of social media. Not only that, but she has a wicked sense of humour.
Change it up Editing
A blog by Candace Johnson, editor extraordinaire with a background in publishing. If you’re writing anything – short stories, novels, non-fiction – you need to read her very helpful posts on a myriad of editing topics.
Creative Writing Tips with The Crimson League
Offers just what it promises in the tag line: Creative Writing Tips and Authorial Support from Fantasy Writer Victoria Grefer. Not only does she blog about some really interesting aspects of creative writing, but she uses fun analogies too.
(BTW – I’m currently reading The Crimson League and am really enjoying it.)
Seeking the Write Life
Some really good, solid advice from Aimee L Salter who provides practical tips to improve manuscripts that make good sense.
Get Me Writing
Some useful articles on various aspects of writing – most recently about abandoning projects: why we do it, how we get back to it and how to know when not to bother.
And finally, I can’t go without mentioning Vikki Thompson‘s blog – she may have determined that a full-time writer’s life is not for her, but her blog posts about her efforts inspire me and keep me going. She’s a trooper and I’d like to think that I have that in common with her.
Hope you enjoy your travelling today. Hopefully I’ll have done some work I can write about by the time I’m next due to post!
