IWSG: Some Blog Love



This is a post for the Insecure Writer's Support Group, which exists so the community of blogging writers can share and support each other, blog-hopping to cheerlead and commiserate. To find out more, visit: Insecure Writer's Support Group.



I love all my blogging pals who offer encouragement and share their personal experiences to help us realize we aren't alone.  But I have to admit I have some favorites -- ones I go to for more than encouragement.  These people's blogs always help me learn new things and make me feel I have a chance to get a handle on this great big (and kinda scary) publishing adventure.

Nathan Bransford's Blog
Definitely my one-stop-shop for all the best news on the net about writers and writing. His blog is just incredible!

Falling Leaflets
Jess always has the latest contest or special submission info.  I don't know how she keeps up with it all, but just keep doing what you're doing, Jess!

Sarah Nego Writes
Sarah recently got an internship at the Corvisiero Agency and gives insider tips in special posts called "Agency Lessons." I love that she shares the real scoop with us!

Writing on the Ether
Jane Friedman offers a weekly round-up of articles she's found on the net that offer amazing insights into the business of publishing.

Marsha's Musings
Okay, I don't go to Marsha's blog for info exactly.  I go to laugh my head off -- she's a riot! :-)


Thanks to all the writing bloggers who band together and offer each other such generous support! I love you guys!

Those look like a good group of blogs, with some excellent information. I would really love to check out, and read them all. A support group is a great idea. It's difficult to accomplish these mighty tasks by yourself, but with the support of friends, one can not fail.
