Ava Jae: Writerly Blogger Extraordinaire! (Friday Follow)

     A few weeks back, I posted about the top five bloggers to influence me. This list is always changing for me, but if you haven't read it, you should, and you should follow ALL OF THEM! Do yourself a favor and follow these fellow writers and their blogs because they are filled with awesome and win.  Today, I'd like to follow up on and highlight one of these special blogger/writers, Avalon Jaedra. If you don't follow her twitter, you should rectify that as well: @Ava_Jae.

     While I have written for years, I didn't seriously pick up the writer pen until about a year ago. I started a twitter account and befriended Ava. We even swapped chapters of our WIP and did our best to help one another improve what we had written.  I also started following Ava's blog. I have not stopped following this information since. I could argue every post is filled with something for every writer to take away with them. That's rare to find. I know I've grown as a writer, and a blogger because of advice and points Ava has posted weekly.

     Another important factor in suggesting Ava to you is how supportive and encouraging she is. Any time I have asked her a question, she has tried her level best to reply to me and offer any support or help she can. Writing can be a lonely profession. It's easy to get isolated in the island of your WIP and lost in the boat of editing, waves chopping hard against you. And, from around the corner, you can trust Ava to fire her *Confetti Cannon* to cheer you on.

     So, RUN, don't walk to WRITABILITY, Ava's awesomesauce blog on writing tips, tricks and thoughts from one writer to cyberspace every M,W&F (another great tip I took/borrowed/okay I totally stole it from Ava Jae!):

     What do you like about Ava's blog? Or about Ava herself? Post your comments below.


  1. I don't really know what to say except thank you. This is so sweet and wonderful and I appreciate it SO much.

    I'm so happy to see that you get so much from my blog (and Twitter randomness). I never imagined I'd get such a positive response when I started up last spring.

    Thank you for being so supportive and awesome! You rock!

  2. Dear Ava,

    You are most welcome! I learn so much and appreciate your writerly friendship. Pen sharpens pen, right? Let's spur one another on to write our best and always strive to get better!
