As summer begins, it hopefully offers new opportunities in many areas of life. I thought I’d do my part to contribute to summer laziness by listing three excellent blogs for writers: one with writing advice, one with discussion of topics, and one fun one.
Wordplay/ is the blog of K.M. Weiland, and has many tips for writers of all genres—practical, straightforward ones. I even won a free copy of her writing type CD once.
Another good site for writers of speculative fiction is Speculative Faith, a group blog that discusses theological and craft issues in fantasy and sci-fi, as well as reviews of some works in that area. One of my favorite bloggers on that site is Kaci Hill, who co-wrote Lunatic and Elyon with Ted Dekker.
On the other hand, Come in Character, is a fun blog where authors answer questions from the perspective of their characters.
