A Few Blogging Friends from Northern Colorado Writers

Today I'm going to feature links to a few of our Northern Colorado Writers who have blogs. I picked the three most recent posts from my blogroll plus the official NCW blog:

Amy Kathleen Ryan writes YA (teen) novels and has been featured here before. Her blog is called Amy Kathleen Ryan -- Amy's Blog, and her post yesterday was called Asking Nicely: The Problem of Willpower.

Kay Theodoratus can be found muttering (Kay's words) about books and writing and revisions at Lessons Found in My Reading. Yesterday's post was Series End or Just Shifting Gears? She's getting ready to move to a twice-a-week blogging schedule for a while.

Linda Henk blogs at Linda L. Henk. Yesterday she wrote about the topic she's chosen for the nonfiction critique group she has joined, and using a Process Journal to help her understand what she's learning as she writes.

Kerrie Flanagan, director of Northern Colorado Writers, and four NCW member contributors post five days a week at The Writing Bug. Yesterday's post was Movie Magic: The Apple Box by Trai Cartwright.

There are more interesting writers and bloggers in my NCW blogroll. Some are published authors, some with completed manuscripts searching for agents and publishers. Others write articles or are working on their first book. All in all, a very interesting bunch of people.

But then, most folks (especially writers) are pretty interesting when you get to know them.

What a wonderful idea--featuring fellow bloggers from your region! This would be a great way for writers/bloggers and groups needing speakers to connect. Way to give to the community, Patricia!

Good morning Marian and Ann -- NCW is one of the most eclectic writing groups I've ever joined, which opens the way to many new insights and adventures in writing. And the networking opportunities are amazing. It's a great group.

"Write-on" about Northern Colorado Writiers.

Thanks for the mention. Have to go to twice a week on the blog instead of thrice because setting up a website is even more complicated than my nightmares dreamed.

Too bad I can't "speell".

Kay -- I did my website on Yahoo! Sitebuilder which was pretty easy, but I've changed computers now and need to download the Sitebuilder software again...because of that little thing, I haven't updated my website in months. If it's not one thing to fret about, it's something else.

Spelling -- writiers sounds like it should be a word -- and fantasy writres make up words all the time. Just pretend you did it on purpose. :)

Hi Patricia, I visited the blogs and left a few comments. Happy weekend. I planted some dragon fruit plants this weekend. Cool plants!
