I used to write for a music webzine, but the review templates became cumbersome and restrictive. I moved on to my own blog instead and created a new scoring system to compliement my music reviews, but recently I've been posting about non-music topics as well.

My blog features mostly fantasy ebooks thought I do stray to other genres on occasion. I update a minimum of three times a week, but often more! Beyond book reviews I also share upcoming books, well done book trailers I've come across and any ebook related news I think is important.

I'd be delighted if you checked it out!

I actually have two writing blogs. One for my children's books - http://www.jacquelinekirk.com

And one for my adult books because sometimes I want to talk about things that wouldn't interest kids (do kids read blogs?) http://www.jacquelinekirk.com/jmkirk

This is my blog. http://terrycsimpson.wordpress.com/ . I do a little bit of everything on there that has to do with writing often mainly focusing on fantasy.

This blog covers a bunch of literary things.

I continue a series which documents the trials and tribulations of a would-be author as they go through the initial writing phase through editing, review, and eventually to the agent submission (and possibly beyond). This is a live story - currently in the process of writing all that has happened. Come End of January is when the top agents will be contacted and we can all watch the process as I document it. In the meantime, some of my insights in the writing process as well as focus points for a manuscript might be valuable to others - and this is the primary reason I am blogging it in the first place.  Documenting everything!

Also some of my editor friends are making me have more of a web presence. I find blogging a bit odd - but looking at it as an activity I can do while letting my current manuscript cool off.

Here be my blog!


It's largely about writing, but gaming and animation are my other favourite topics, and there's the odd free short story too.  ;D

Great idea, I will have to make my way through all these links. :)

The beginning of this year, I started a study group called "Yo Ho A Writer's Life for Me" and we are reading and discussing The Art of War for Fiction Writers: fiction writing strategies, tactics, and exercises by James Scott Bell. Ya'll are more than welcomed to come and join in on the discussions. http://jlmbewe.wordpress.com/

"Don’t let all the fuss about the rules, the should-nots and the do-nots get you discouraged. Learning the mechanics of writing builds a good foundation, but its also about balancing it with the art of writing. So as Elizabeth Swan said, “Hang the code, and hang the rules. They’re more like guidelines anyways.”

I blog about media, games, fantasy, feminism, sex... Pretty much anything that catches my interest at the time being, but the main theme tends to be media and society.


Would love for people to check it out :)

The pen is mightier than the sword, and considerably easier to write with.

Made a new blog, http://lewisdix.blogspot.com, where I'm going to log my attempt (and failure) at writing an entire novel in this month of May.

My blog contains a mix of a lot of things ... interviews with writers, info on what I'm reading, whatever really draws my attention ... but the general focus is upon writing and genre fiction.

I have a new blog this year, www.themarketplaceofopinions.com I'm not very consistent at updating, but recently I've had more to think/want to blog about, so hopefully the pace will pick up.

You can find me at http://jmarkmiller.net. I blog mostly about writing concerns, but pretty much whatever's on my mind at the time. I post short fiction there as well.
