Friday Links -- Volume 24

Woohoo! Another weekend approaches.  Actually it's not as big a deal for me, since I seem to get more writing accomplished during the week than I do during the weekend.  Go figure.  I will be meeting with my local SCWBI group on Saturday, so I'm pretty sure there I will do some writing.  The meeting calls for a massive critting session, which should be great fun.  My only concern is that the chapter I plan to share has a college-age MC, which might be pushing the MG/YA boundaries of SCWBI.

I'm still recovering from co-hosting April's Insecure Writers Support Group bloghop. I met more great writers and my inspiration levels shot up into the stratosphere.    I'd like to extend a special thank you to all the other co-hosts: Hart Johnson, Candilynn Fite, Terri Rochenski, Clare Dugmore, and Lilica Blake!  Thanks again, Alex.

Have fun with the links and enjoy your weekend.

  1. Go ahead and push the boundaries...
    Glad you had a good time co-hosting. It's much more fun on the host side.

  2. What can they do? Throw me out? Hmmm... possibly.

  3. I too seem to get more writing done when I don't have long to do it. When I have all day, I procrastinate more.

  4. Your Friday links are torture when I don't have time to read them. Or if I did, I wouldn't finish your critique. Now which should I do? And college age MC? Is that your new book?

  5. I have all day Saturday and Sunday to write--but on the nights when I have maybe two hours, three tops...I am so much more productive!

  6. I tend to write more during the week too. The weekends are usually filled with family...

  7. Great links. Thanks! Hope you're having a wonderful week. :)
