Writers and Writing Communities

Hey Reader,

I’m always excited when I’ve found a new person who is doing something for other in relation to writing. It’s always great to find YouTube channels of authors who are posting videos with advice on writing, or bloggers who are gathering tools for others to use with their writing.

That said, I’m going to share some of the helpful people/communities I’ve found that have helped me get excited and keep writing.

1. NaNoWriMo.

For those of you who haven’t heard of NaNoWriMo, it’s not for everyone. But if it’s for you, it’s amazing. It stands for National Novel Writing Month, which is in November, and serves as an organization whose main goal is getting people to put their stories to paper. They have a YouTube channel and a website with tons of resources and advice for writers. Also, they have a NaNoWriMo challenge every November to write a 50,000 word novel in a month, and my experience with them has been great.

2. Jenna Moreci

This is an author on YouTube who posts weekly videos on writing, the hardships of writing, and advice on certain parts of the writing process. I’ve watched almost every single one of her videos, which were all awesome and super helpful, and she’s great at what she does. Also, what I’ve read of her book, Eve: The Awakening, was great.

3. Mandi Lynn

Mandi is another awesome YouTube author who is also a teenager. This was a huge inspiration to me as well, since I’m a teen author. Her first novel, Essence, was amazing. It’s sitting on my shelf right now. She had another novel come out last October called I Am Mercy and I can’t wait to get my hands on it as well (I have it on my very long list). She has a playlist of “YA Ink” videos that are great on writing advice and tons of publishing and formatting advice.

My challenge for you is to check out each of these. Really, these have all made an impact on my writing and it would be awesome to share that with all of you:)

As always, good luck:)

Thank you for reading and don’t stop writing!

Kelli Crockett.
