Seven Writing Links -- Volume 109

Nothing much going on at our house this week.  The kids are prepping for the end of semester finals, and the wife and I are slowly beginning to pack away all the Christmas decorations that have been lying around the house for the past couple of weeks.  If only we could get winter out of the way this easily!

But best of all, I made progress on my story.  My CPs will be happy.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.
