Best Blogs for Budding Authors

A while ago I blogged on some of my favourite books about writing.  Today I’m highlighting a few of my favourite blogs about writing – the craft of writing, techniques to learn, pitfalls to avoid, advice on developing as a writer, tips on building your public profile as an author, and, of course, on getting published.

My favourite of all is Moody Writing, a very active blog posting superb articles on every aspect of the craft of writing; fresh, coherent and packed with good sense and great advice.

I also value craft tips for writers from Sue Healy, who shares a wealth of journalistic and writerly experience.

For practical business sense for authors, I’ve found Write to be Published author, Nicola Morgan and her blog, Help! I Need a Publisher to be worldly-wise, informative and helpful.

Lastly for now, there’s Writer Unboxed, a collaborative blog with contributions from multiple authors; great for getting a variety of perspectives on every aspect of the writer’s experience.

I learn from these generous bloggers every day.  Doubtless there are other blogs which could also prove invaluable to the novice writer and if you know of one, I would love you to share it with us all, so do respond with a comment and a contribution if you can.
