Blogs to follow for writers

There are times, for almost every writer out there, when they find themselves at a complete loss for words. Either they get backed up in a corner without a clue about how to continue further with their content, dried out of any enthusiasm and inspiration, or merely need help with building their information base.

If you're a writer, you've undoubtedly faced a similar looking wall at some point. That's when you've turned to anything resembling even the slightest form of help that could point you towards the right direction. Be it other writers, friends, colleagues, or even online discussion forums, you've probably sought it out. But if the advice does little to nothing to answer your questions, you should perhaps rethink your strategy. You might be surprised to find support and comfort lurking inside other realms of creativity.

Grammarly: Proofreading tools are the magic wands of writers, erasing errors, and editing their work to perfection. Grammarly is one of the first proofreading site that pops up when you Google it, which says much about its reliability and reputation. On top of that, it has its own blog on writing tips for articles and some more take on the fun, light-hearted side of writing.

Daily Writing Tips: This is the go-to blog for anyone confused about using an unfamiliar phrase or spelling. This is a simple writing guide that does exactly what it says on the label. It comes up with everything a writer needs to know about their use of language, delivering interesting tips, and formal writing parameters every day. 

Copyblogger: Copyblogger principally generates articles that are inclined towards content marketing. But it also focuses on the development and traits of creative writing in general. For example, it has a feature with an interview with bestselling author Dan Buettner which can be useful for many up-and-coming bloggers, journalists, and fiction writers.

Better Novel Project: Better Novel Project is an interesting blog that serves deconstructed analysis of bestsellers, pinpointing any common elements that they might have, and creating a versatile story structure with their help. Each post is hand-illustrated with a doodle or infographic, which makes it fun and entertaining for the viewers. 

The Write Life: “Create, connect, and earn” – if this resonates with your writing personality, then this is where you'll find the motivation you need to carry forward. It's the motto of The Write Life, and it signifies the engaging environment and helpful writing community that will serve as a resolute unit of support for every struggling writer. It's a refreshing way to put all that you've learned into somewhere that rewards you fittingly.
