Seven Writing Links -- Volume 65

Received a lot of good feedback from my online critique group this week.  Not the kind of feedback that makes you want to throw the manuscript into the trash.  The kind that makes you sit back and think "Yeah, these suggestions will definitely make the chapter even better."  The kind that makes you want to immediately jump right back in and rewrite that scene instead of moving on and writing the next chapter like I probably should.

Thought of the week?  I wish Candy Crush had a replay button so I could figure out why seemingly simple moves sometimes result in outcomes vastly different from what I expected.  Sometimes I think the game cheats.  Doesn't stop me from playing it, though.

Enjoy the links and have a great weekend!

  1. Glad the suggestions inspired you.
    I admit I've played Candy Crush a few times on my iPad...

  2. Thanks for sharing these links. But I admit that I've never played Candy Crush and I still don't understand why people on FB send me invitations to play it when I don't play.

  3. I need to try candy crush, but I don't like the face book version. Guess I need to buy it outright.

    I love when my CPs have suggestions that make me want to dive right in and make the changes.

  4. yay for great feedback.
    You don't want to know what level I'm on in Candy Crush... sigh.

  5. Thanks for co-hosting, Ken! I'm addicted to Bejeweled and Lumosity, so I've avoided Candy Crush! Thanks for sharing these links. Have a good one!
