Like to read? Check out these blogs

I’ve been following and participating in Rachael Harrie’s Writers Platform-Building Campaign, as I’ve mentioned. I try to visit a couple of blogs of other participants each day, and comment on blogs that I like.
This is by no means a comprehensive list, nor even a systematic one. I just randomly clicked on some of the blogs and links in Rachael's page. If I liked the story, blog or writing style, I took note of it. And if I didn't like the writing or the story, I'll just ignore it from now on.

Here are some that I think are worth visiting. Maybe I'll have a chance to review some more.

KM Walton’s “Some Things I Think,”

Michael Haynes’ “A Writing Blog,”

1000th Monkey,

Richard P. Hughes’ “Writing and Living,”

Barbara McDowell’s Blog,

Jolene Stockman,

Michelle Helene’s “A Wanderer in Paris,”

JR Williams’ “My Road to Freedom,”

Rebecca Emin’s “Ramblings of a Rusty Writer,”

Shelly Koon’s “Dark Writes,”

SL Pierce’s “Pierce Books,”

I like their writing, their contributions to the Campaign, and/or their blogs, themselves. Check them out!

One more thing: I have to give some extra praise to SL Pierce's writing. Her entry led me to her site, with more of her stories. I really liked "Never, Ever Bring This up Again." A great example of the noir mystery with lots of twists and double-crosses, deftly condensed into a very short story (but just a little too long to fit Harrie's requirements). And I'm very intrigued by her other stories, as well. Great characters!
