Inspired by the newest visitor to The Writing Spectacle - JenWriter - and her 5 Great Blogs by Writers (I'm one of them!), I thought I'd give my own version. Below are what I think are five blogs that consistently rock the writerly world. (Not including Jen's blog, which rocks on its own and already has the above link, or several others, because I talk about them regularly, and they already know how much I think they rock.)
One Word, One Rung, One Day - Travis Erwin shares his life, his stories and his humor with the world. In his own words: "One word ... because that is how all stories must start. One Rung ... at a time up the long, slippery ladder of success. One Day ... my name will grace the cover of a novel. A big, hairy Texan's pursuit to publish a novel."
Wendy Roberts - An awesome gal whose debut novel hit the shelves last month. Read her insights, her wit and her wisdom about this business - and then get out and buy a copy of Remains of the Dead.
Karin Tabke - This gal is busy. She's got multiple writing projects in the works, writes for multiple blogs, and still finds time to do a First Line Contest every so often. Kudos to her. If you want to know what writing / publishing / editing is really like, take a read through her blog. What a gal!
The Good Girls Kill for the Money Club - Five writers, five excellent minds... Too much fun.
Paperback Writer - Author Lynn Viehl (or S.L. Viehl depending on which of her books you're looking at) shares her thoughts and her journeys through the publishing industry. With '38 novels in 5 genres' under her belt, she also has the guns to back up her words. (And if you haven't read any of her books, you're missing out.)
Okay. I don't know if I'm going to make this a regular feature, but it's always good to give out a little link-love. I hope everyone visits the above links and takes something positive away.
(A little service announcement: My fingers aren't cooperating today, so any typos are entirely their fault. Little snits. Feh.)
