Seven Writing Links -- Volume 115

The last couple of weekends, the family and I have been out of town, which means my weekend writing time has been mostly nonexistent.   I was either spending my time interacting with the family, or, after they'd all gone to bed, I was too tired to stay up and write. But we're staying put this weekend, so I have high hopes for getting some real writing accomplished.

We'll see how it goes. Even though the days are becoming longer, the nights are still cold, and I often find myself sitting in front of my computer late at night concentrating not on the story, but on how nice it would be to crawl into a nice warm bed. And caffeine doesn't help.

Wish me luck.

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.

  1. Crank the heat. Although still not as good as a warm bed...

  2. Good luck! Here's hoping you have a very productive weekend. :)

  3. Great article on the unreliable narrator. They are such a challenge to both write and read.

  4. What would we do without caffeine, though. At least it perks us up a bit. I don't think I'd have completed a single book without my cup of coffee at hand. Good luck on getting that concentration back on the story.

  5. Nice selection of links this week. My fingers are crossed you get writing this weekend. :-)
