Seven Writing Links -- Volume 119

Congratulations to those of you partaking in the annual A to Z blogging challenge. Once again, I declined to participate -- not because it didn't sound like fun -- but because I couldn't justify spending that much time on blog posts when I still haven't finished my first book. However, my goal is to finish it by next April, so I plan to join the challenge next year. Heck, I've already chosen my theme. Wish me luck!

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links.
