Blog.Nathanbransford.com If you're a writer, then Nathan Bransford's blog is pretty much indispensable. He talks about everything from "How to Write a Novel," to publishing advice, to literary agents. He's consistently writing and adding new useful tips. Check out Nathan on Twitter, too: @NathanBransford
Veronicarothbooks.blogspot.com If you read the Young Adult genre at all, or listen to pop culture news, you've heard of Veronica Roth. She's the author of the super-popular Divergent series, and is now on Forbe's "Top-Earning Authors" list. This blog address is actually not active now--she moved her website to Tumblr some time ago--but all of her old posts are still live, at least for now. I love this blog so much, because it was created before she was the famous "Veronica Roth." She wrote about her publishing journey, tips on getting a literary agent, and how publishing actually works. It's an inspiring blog, and makes you feel as though she's a regular person...like you can do what she does. She also writes in a humorous style, which I love. Enjoy this blog while it's up, because she said that she'll eventually take it down! You can check Veronica out on Twitter, too: @VeronicaRoth
Thecreativepenn.com Another writing blog, Thecreativepenn.com is one of my all time favorites. This blog is written by New York Times bestselling author, Joanna Penn. I'm pretty sure this blog was one of Writer's Digest's "Top Blogs For Writers," too. I'm 99% sure that it made the list. There's a plethora of great writing and reader advice on here, and I highly suggest you check this blog out. Follow Joanna on Twitter: @thecreativepenn
YAhighway.com This is a great blog, and I think it's extra awesome, because more than one author writes on it. It's a group of contributing writers that write everything from advice, to book reviews. One of my bucket-list dreams is becoming a contributing writer for YA Highway! They're on Twitter, too: @YAHighway
Those are my top four! I could go on and on, but these blogs will take some time for you to check out. What blogs do you love?
On another note, I start college tomorrow! I'll only be attending part-time, but I'm really looking forward to it. I was considering majoring in Creative Writing, but changed my direction and am now majoring in marketing, with a possible minor in Creative Writing.
Until next time, connect with me on Twitter. I love hearing from you! @Elysia_Regina
