Anyone here love writing as much as I do? For many people, the love of books and writing/literature goes together naturally. I’m one of those people!
It make sense I’d make a list of writing blogs. Like my other mega lists of inspirational blogs, it’s still a work in progress!
Trying to divide the world of writing up is very hard, but I hope this helps you find what you’re looking for. It’s arranged into writing websites, writing blogs, creative writing blogs & fiction writing blogs, and writing bloggers.
Have I forgotten one? Do you knowone I should read and others should too? What are you waiting for? Please contact me.
Hope you enjoy this post, and find something new to read and learn from!
