Helpful Hashtags

Helpful Hashtags

If there's one thing that can distract writers, it's the internet. I'm a horrible offender of this so much so that I wrote a blog post about how to make your procrastination productive on the website that I run with Kristen.

Well, this is a part two of sorts in the sense that, if you're on Twitter, I'm going to give you some of the best hashtags you can follow if you're a YA writer or reader. That way you can be on Twitter, and still be productive and learning about your craft and your fellow writers.

To see what people are saying in each category, all you have to do is click on the links I've already provided for you, or go to the search bar on the Twitter webpage, and type in the world with the hashtag in front.
  • #YA - Mostly just tweets about books that are young adult.
  • #YaLit - Tweets relating book articles, writing tips, and young adult books.
  • #YaLitChat - Wednesday night YA chats. You can find the schedule here.
  • #YoungAdult - More tweets about YA blogs, book reviews, and YA in general.
  • #AmWriting - Tweets about writing (not just for YA).
  • #Writetips - Tips about writing in general (Not just YA).
  • #AmReading - Where people tweet about what they are reading or want to read.
  • #AmEditing - Where writers tweet about editing and if you're me, how much you hate it.
  • #AskAgent - An amazing hashtag where you can ask questions and agents will drop in and respond.
  • #QWish - Where people retweet listings from agents on what they would like to see in their inbox.
What are your favorite writer-ly hashtags? Did I miss any amazing ones? 
Let me know in the comments below and I will love you forever.
