5 Blogs About Writing Fiction – Resource Roundup Tuesday

by Anne Wayman

tuesday-writingI rarely attempt fiction, and so far, it’s always been an attempt. I have trouble plotting and get snarled up and give it up. That said, I still have fantasies of a detective or thriller book with this sexy, older, feminine heroine. With that in mind, here are some blogs dedicated to writing fiction that look helpful to me.

  • Writing FictionCrawford Kilian who also blogs at Writing For the WebI can quickly get lost reading Writing Fiction, lost in a good way. Kilian is honest and opinionated and often we agree. He writes all sorts of blogs. I subscribed to this one. (See RSS for Writers to understand subscribing to blogs.)
  • Advanced Fiction Writing Blogcontracted as a co-author for the upcoming Fiction Writing For Dummies, Randy Ingermanson seems to know what he’s talking about. And I love his humor. I may join him in his plan for world domination. I’ve subscribed to this blog too.
  • Writing Fiction Right by novelist Gail Gaymyer Martin who writes Christian romance. With over 3 million books sold she knows what she’s talking about at least in that genre.
  • Fiction Writing ~ The Passionate Journey! Writing coach and well-published author Emily Hanlon, her blog covers a wide range of topics for those who want to write fiction.
  • Ginny’s Fiction Writing Blog is an About.com blog written by Ginny Wiehardt who is both an editor and teacher. Helpful story starters and other regular features, and a decent forum make this a good bet for beginning fiction writers.

Do you have a favorite blog about fiction writing? Or write one yourself? Tell us about it.

One of my favorite fiction writing blogs is Work-in-Progress at http://workinprogressinprogress.blogspot.com. Leslie always writes interesting and informative posts, including writing tips, observations about the writing life, contests and journals soliciting submissions.

Plus–ahem–I have my own blog about the author life called My Life on the Mid-List at http://midlistlife.wordpress.com.
