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,” http://skateorbate.blogspot.com/

Michael Haynes’ “A Writing Blog,” http://michael-haynes.blogspot.com/

1000th Monkey, http://1000thmonkey.blogspot.com

Richard P. Hughes’ “Writing and Living,” http://richard-writingandliving.blogspot.com/

Barbara McDowell’s Blog, http://writenowlife.wordpress.com/

Jolene Stockman, http://jolenestockman.blogspot.com/

Michelle Helene’s “A Wanderer in Paris,” http://wanderingparis.blogspot.com/

JR Williams’ “My Road to Freedom,” http://jr-williams.com/blog/

Rebecca Emin’s “Ramblings of a Rusty Writer,” http://ramblingsofarustywriter.blogspot.com/

Shelly Koon’s “Dark Writes,” http://shelleykoon.com/author/

SL Pierce’s “Pierce Books,” http://slpiercebooks.blogspot.com/

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!
