Seven Writing Links -- Volume 69


Last Friday I apologized for the lateness of my Wednesday post and promised to do better in the future. So what did I do this week? I completely missed the post.  Yep.  Wednesday morning rolled around and I didn't even have a clue about what to write.  Sigh...

At least I have an excuse this week. . My wife was still recovering from the flue, I've been helping my daughter prepare for her Forensics competition which happens this weekend, and the middle school play my son is in finally goes live this Friday and Saturday. And since my wife and I volunteered to help with set changes between scenes, every night this week has been spent practicing at the school. I don't know how nervous the kids are about performing, but the sheer panic and chaos that occurs during the scenes while the parents are running around backstage, trying to figure out exactly what we have to do in the thirty seconds between the scenes is nerve wracking and exhausting.

I will be so happy when Saturday is over!

Hope you have a great weekend, too.

Enjoy the links.

  1. I bet the parents are far more nervous than the kids. Hope everything goes as planned this weekend (and if not, hopefully you can laugh about it later) and next week you can breath a sigh of relief.

  2. Sounds like a big weekend, and an exciting time for the kids. Is your wife feeling better now? Hopefully. It'd suck to head in there when still feeling cruddy.

  3. Sounds like you've had a busy week! Hope everything goes well for the kids!

  4. Boo on the flu!!!! And chaos too… I'm sending you survival vibes, Ken… and some writing vibes too… ;-)

  5. Good luck on Saturday! I hope your wife is feeling better. Thanks for the links! I've been hearing a lot lately about the awesomeness of Nick Stephenson.
