Blogs by and for Writers

If you’re a writer – or a reader who likes to keep up with writers – you probably like to read writing and writers’ blogs.

The Big List of Writing Blogs has a list of blogs broken down into three categories: Blogs for Writers, Writers’ Blogs, and Blogs on Blogging. Although many of my favorites are on this list, there are a few I don’t see. And, of course, there are many new ones that I’m checking out. A Writer’s Words, An Editor’s Eye is listed under Writers’ Blogs.

Misti Sandefur has posted a shorter list of her favorite writing and writers’ blogs, “some great blogs,” in her words, at Life of a Writer. I’m honored that A Writer’s Words, An Editor’s Eye is on this list that includes some of my favorites.

Dana Prince listed Some Fave Writing Spots, a short list of five blogs and sites for writers.

I read a lot of writers and writing blogs. Here are a few of my favorites.
