I watch a lot of YouTube. Maybe a little too much. I watch more YouTube than I watch TV.
Most of the channels I watch are video game related, but I do watch some writing related content here and there. Sometimes, watching YouTube videos are the best research and it’s the easiest to find.
This channel is run by best-selling author, Joanna Penn. She talks a lot about publishing, marketing, and writing in general. Other writers are on some of the videos talking about their own journeys. The Creative Penn is Joanna sharing her own journey and sharing what she’s learned. It’s a lot of great information.
2. Ellen Brock
Ellen Brock is a freelance editor and her channel is all about answering common writing questions. She talks about writing in general, editing, and has Q&As. Her videos are short and sweet and definitely worth taking a look at.
3. Chris Fox
Chris is a best-selling author and discusses mostly marketing and business of publishing. If you’re at that stage in your writing, he’s a good resource.
Shaelin is a young author who discusses all things writing and editing as well as reading. She is also a good resource as she talks a lot about her own experiences and novels. Plus she does fun tags and such.
5. Jenna Moreci
Another author and her videos are mostly “how to” videos about writing advice for other writers. She’s definitely got a sense of humor so her videos are entertaining as they are informative.
6. Jorden Roper
Jorden is a successful freelance writer. Her videos are all about making it as a freelancer and a blogger. Whether you plan on writing novels are not, her tips are pretty useful, especially from a blogger’s standpoint.
