On Being a Writer: Engage

I am joining a group of writers who are linking-up twice a week through the month of September to discuss some of the foundational ideas in writing. The topics for this link-up come from the book On Being a Writer by Ann Kroeker and Charity Singleton Craig. This link-up is being hosted by Kate Motaung on her blog entitled Heading Home. Today’s topic is Engage:

Today’s post is all about creating a community of writers with whom you are able to engage. At this point, I’m still building that solid community. There are certain blogs and bloggers that I engage with on a normal basis for moral support in life, but really the focus for today is based on those I interact with that challenge my writing. As a writer I have sought advice from several bloggers and I would like to share those blogs with you. The following is a list of my Top 5 Blogs for Writing:

Live to Write

Kate Motaung

Michelle Richmond

Writer, Writer, Pants on Fire

Rachel Wojo

Many of these blogs offer advice, ideas, and open communication that have helped in the process of developing my skills. Some write about their faith and have authored books of that nature, while others are more raw with the type of writings they publish. There are plenty more notable writing blogs out there, and I am still in the process of building my community and looking for suggestions. Do you have a go-to blog or blogger to help challenge your writing?
