We're approaching the end of the year, and to be honest, it can't come quickly enough. Why? Because it means I'll have more time for writing. :)
The night class I teach will be finished in about a week and a half, and as of two days ago, I'm officially done with my daughter's FTC robotics competition. The actual competition isn't until tomorrow, but there's been too much politicking and backstabbing going on within the team for my taste, so my daughter and I have decided we've had enough and have pulled out of the team. Hopefully her joy of working on robots will return with time.
I also have a special link for you today. The Insecure Writers Support Group now has a website and everyone should go on over there and check it out. There's even a contest that will last until the 16th of December, so be sure to sign up. I'm starting a rumor that the founder of IWSG, Alex Cavanaugh, will embarrass himself publicly as one of the prizes. :)
Here are today's links. And as always, have a great weekend!
