Seven Writing Links -- Volume 72

I'm really looking forward to a nice relaxing weekend.  The Midwest Media Expo is over and my taxes are finished.  Woohoo!  Time to catch up on some sleep!

The Expo was fun, although tiring, especially since I  helped my daughter carry parts of her Enderdragon costume around with her all day.  But it was all worth it in the end.
I'm happy to report she won an award for her costume.

Happiness after the award.

And to top it all off, I think I'm finally making some progress on the chapter that's been plaguing me for weeks.  Good news all around!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.
