Pay it Foward - Part 6

Today's links are brought to you by the Pay it Forward blog hop.

Here are the rules:

List, describe, and link to three blogs that you enjoy reading.
Visit and follow blogs that you see people pointing to.
Visit all of them if you can, but if you can't then that's okay too.

It's simple.

Just test out the links below and if you like them, follow them. Today, I share some of the blogs or links that have helped me the most. Some have been spotlighted before, but deserve repeating.

One of the new blogs I have been frequenting is Owen Jay Nelson's. He always has something informative to read and he puts a lot of thought into his blogs. Stop by and follow him.

Amie Kaufman always has a blog that is like a Pay it Forward daily. She always has articles written by friends that pertains to whatever she is writing about. She covers all sorts of subjects that are helpful to writers.

And Janet Reid covers everything a querying writer should know. She gives tips, holds contests and gives more tips. One of my favorites to read.

Thanks for checking out my blog today and I hope to earn your follow. Next week we will be hosting a number of short horror stories and a contest.

Since I have a growing interest in horror (okay, I'm re-finding my inner teen's love of horror), your blog is definitely a follow. Glad you joined Matt's blogfest.

Hi ya, Draven! I'm also a writer and am querying for my first novel, a thriller. And I'm a new follower of yours, as well. Found you through the PIF bloghop and I couldn't resist the name of your blog. Too cool! And so is your name, by the way. And your job, too. Guess that makes you a pretty cool guy!

So I know QueryShark, Janet Reid's blogs well (who doesn't, right?), but not the others so I'll have to check them out. Thanks for sharing.

Draven Ames said...

Nancy - Why thank you. Checking out your blog now too.

Isn't Janet amazing? But I'd be scared to death to query her. =D

You aren't kidding, Donna.
