43 Most Inspiring Writing Advice Posts of 2009

By Jennifer Blanchard

This year there have been billions of articles about writing posted all over the Web, detailing everything from getting started to writing a first draft to self-editing to finding a publisher–and everything in between.

As a writer, I’m inspired by the words, ideas and thoughts of others. (I’m sure you are too.) And yesterday I was very inspired by Daniel Scocco’s post on Daily Blog Tips about taking part in a group writing project: By writing a 2009 Year in Review post on your blog.

So I’m doing just that.

I’ve compiled a list of the 43 most inspiring writing posts of 2009. This list is by no means exhaustive. There are probably thousands of other inspiring posts that I didn’t even come across during my reading this year. But these are the ones that inspired me most and so I wanted to share them all with you.

You’ll notice there are a lot of repeat authors. This is because some authors are just amazing and nail it pretty much every time. Larry Brooks, Joe Williams and Leo Babauta are three good examples of this.

I’ve included links to a few of my favorite Procrastinating Writers articles that I wrote this year, too.

Also, you’ll notice that not all the items on this list are specifically about writing, but I assure you, all of the advice given can be directly applied to both writing and/or overcoming procrastination.

I hope you enjoy reading the inspiring posts on this list as much as I did.

In no particular order, here are the 43 most inspiring writing advice posts of 2009:

And I had to include this series, because it’s by far the most inspiring series from 2009–Story Structure, an 11-part series, by Larry Brooks:

Whew…2009 has been one hell of a year! I’m very much looking forward to 2010 and all the inspiring words people will post throughout the blogosphere.
