I thought I'd highlight some of the new blogs I have found since participating in the Campaign, the Pay it Forward fest and the Insecure Writer Support Group. These are some blogs with spark that I didn't get to pass awards on to yet!
- Adventure Writes by Mel Fowler
- Angela Brown
- Angela Orlowski-Peart
- Cherie Colyer
- Creative Type by Avery Marsh
- Finding Joy in the Journey by Sheri Swift
- the QQQE by Matthew MacNish
- Wordsmithing by Elaine Smith
I also finished DIVERGENT by Veronica Roth over ther the weekend. A great book, with a disappointing end. I doubt I would read the sequel, not for a long time anyway. But my opinion is tainted because I read it too soon after HUNGER GAMES. These books are eerily similar, strong teen girl heroine in warped dystopian future who has to overcome odds to save the world by rebeling against the system with lots of violence. How's that for a one sentence summary? Anyway, they were both told very well and had opposite approaches to the romance so worth reading and each are great books that I would recommend, just don't read them close together!
And, if I make it in time, I am entering a mini synopsis critique contest put up by Cherie Colyer, one of those new fab-blogs I just listed. Spots are limited, so if you have a good query-size summary you want advice on, get over there!
Lastly, are you a word nerd? take this quiz at Writer's Digest to see =)
