Friday Links -- Volume Ten

So how's Nano going for everybody? We're now halfway through the month, so everyone should be over 25,000 words by now, right? I wish all of you NaNo participants good luck. I'm still mucking about with the so-called story I did last November, so I declined to enter. It’s nice being able to get some sleep during November.

Yesterday, I was privileged to be the recipient of many good soakings, thanks to Soak-a-Bloke day (hosted by Christina Rains). It's part of the Realms Faire, details of which can be found over at M. Pax’s blog.

In other news, Janice Hardy is offering a three chapter critique over at the Crits For Water Auction.

Okay, on to the Friday Links.  Have a great weekend!

Twitter: Are You Taking the Lazy Way Out?


  1. Hope you had fun in the Faire. Bummed I missed it this week.
    I'm probably lazy when it comes to Twitter...

  2. I've seen the faire at so many places. Looks like a lot of virtual fun! I'm still working on last year's NaNo piece, too...put it aside and started something fresh for this year. Going slow, but getting something on paper, which was the goal. I doubt I'll reach the 50K by month's end, but that was never the plan.

  3. Thanks for the awesome links, and I'm glad you had fun getting soaked! I'm at 33,000 words for NaNo as of this morning. And my last year's NaNo novel is with a few of my betas and CPs. Have a good week!
