Seven Writing Links -- Volume 110

Man, January is passing too quickly!  Now this isn't something you'd normally hear me say, since I typically spend the winter desperately waiting for spring to return, but this year I have bigger fish to fry.  I'm trying to finish my damn book, so every day/week/month that passes without hitting that goal, or at least making a significant dent in it, leaves me irritable.

Okay, perhaps"anxious" might be a better word, since I'm not really an irritable kind of guy.  Still, my goal this weekend is to MAKE PROGRESS ON THE DAMN BOOK."  I have two crit group meetings scheduled for the beginning of February, so it's not like I don't have incentive.  Anyway, wish me luck.

Thanks and have a fantastic, productive weekend.
