Kate Sterling's Mischief & Magic: Kate's something of a fellow-traveler, an artist/writer who shares many of my own triumphs and challenges. Unlike me, she seems to do it with perfect good humor and an unbeatable sense of optimism. Every visit to Kate's blog leaves me inspired.
Avery DeBow: Or AvDeeBee, as she's taken to styling herself, has got one of the coolest, wildest, funkiest literary experiments on the web: She's writing a serial novel, with her readers submitting nouns, adjectives, key verbs. It's like the old game Mad Libs, except that Avery writes with assurance and brio enough to pull it off!
Angie's Desk: Angela Benedetti is another great inspiration to me. Her advice on technique, industry insights and general good humor keep me coming back to her blog again and again.
All three of these women are excellent writers I'm proud to call friends.
