There are thousands of blogs across the Internet. Many are beyond exceptional, balancing content and community in ways that are to be admired. And some deserve more love.
October is a busy time of month for writers; with NaNoWriMo around the corner, scribes are in a flurry to prepare outlines, develop characters and refresh their memory on the various aspects of writing craft. There are a few writing blogs I follow religiously for analysis and craft, and the blog of Massachusetts-native Sara Letourneau is one of them.
Sara’s blog has many interesting, ongoing features, including a literature and tea pairing adventure, Chronicling the Craft, and my personal favorite, the Character Evolution Files. Sara creates worksheets and does in-depth analyses of character arcs and writing techniques. I am continually impressed by the amount of dedication that goes into her posts, and in addition, she’s just simply one of the friendliest, charming people you can find. Conversations on Sara’s blog are always energetic and thoughtful, and as a blogger, Sara upholds the best practices – if you’re looking for ways to improve your blogging game, definitely pay attention to her organization and communication skills.
Sara’s series on character evolution only has just started, so feel free to get caught up, and then follow this amazing blogger and author!
The Must-Read Blog Award is not a chain award. There are no questions to answer, no people to nominate, and no blog posts to write. It is a badge of recognition, which also includes a very small monetary award. I am the only person that curates the List, though I do accept suggestions.
