In trying to move to the world of writing original fiction as opposed to fan fiction, (sort of like Pinocchio trying to become a real boy) I read a lot of blogs either by writers or those who have good information for writers. For the fun of it, I thought I'd share a couple of my favorites.

Chuck Windig's blog, Terribleminds

I especially like his "25 Things you should know" posts.  Most recently this one called, 25 Things You Should Know About Plot

A precautionary word about this blog.  Chuck has the mouth of a sailor...if you can't take foul language and the occasional donkey dick joke, you might want to skip this. However, if you want to become a better writer...well, it's up to you.  'Nuff said.

I'm also fond of Kristin Lamb's blog.  She concentrates on how writers can benefit from using social media and about blogging for writers.
If you're looking to build a fan base, and enhance your web presence..this is the place to see how it's done.

Although geared for the Urban Fantasy market, there's much good information on the writing process here at Lilith Saintcrow's blog, A Fire of Reason. There is also much madness and self promotion, but hey, isn't that why we do this as well? (Who else but Lily would do a picture spread on Gilbert the Zombie Garden Gnome?  Well, don't say I didn't warn you!)

So, what blogs do you read?

In Peace...

I don't read many writing blogs (I really should change that), but that post on plot is really helpful (plot is my weak point... :P)
