Stepping Stones: Level-up your writing

Stepping Stones MF

I follow many different blogs on writing. During my self-publishing journey, one of the most important things I’ve discovered is there’s a lot to learn about writing and writing well.

If you’re a writer, you probably know Chuck Wendig’s blog is always good for a swift slap in the writing-chops and a reality check on publishing. I follow him and if you don’t, you should.

There are also other fabulous blogs on writing and publishing, too many to name here, that offer really good advice. And when I say good advice, I mean as soon as I’m finished reading the article, I’m not only sharing it on social media, but jotting down notes for my current WIP.

Sitting up yet? Good. Below are links to three of the bloggers I follow and the articles they’ve posted which have greatly impacted my thought process lately.



These ladies and their insight into the craft have been extremely helpful to me and my writing. I suggest following via Twitter, Facebook, etc., and I believe all of those links can be found on their blogs.

I hope these articles get your writer juices flowing. For me, the insight and information these bloggers share are just the stepping stones I need to reach to a new level in my writing. Always learning. Always moving forward. Up and onward.

Do you follow a blog that has shaken up the way you write? Feel free to comment and share. Let’s all level-up our writing. (Ally, you’re an editor. Can I use level-up as a verb?)

Happy reading.

I was born and raised in San Francisco, CA, and have a husband and two children. Music is an addiction. I can often be found in the car, singing along at the top of my lungs to whatever is playing. I work full time, and I split my spare time between family, reading, blogging, and writing. I’m a habitual quoter. Lines from films and TV shows constantly pop into my head—my kids are the only ones that really get it. I’m an only child, and so of course I married a man who is one of ten children. Other than English, I speak Spanish, Moroccan, and a little French. I love to travel, but don’t do enough of it. Reading has been a passion for most of my life and I now love writing. I’m klutz, and in my own mind, I’m hilarious.
