Seven Writing Links -- Volume 135

Two days ago, I whined about having trouble finishing a scene that I needed to turn in to my crit group. The crit meeting is next Thursday, and since our requirement is that submissions must be submitted via email one week before the meeting, that meant the scene was due yesterday. So on Wednesday night, I settled down in my writing chair, caffeinated drink in hand, determined to have that scene finished on time. Then it occurs to me that I'll be out of town next Thursday, so there's no point in submitting anything until next month. Arg!!!

On the bright side, I'm pretty sure the scene will be in better shape by then.

Enjoy the links and the weekend!

128 Words to Use Instead of "Very"


  1. Well, you have time now!
    I can write under the pressure of NaNo, but don't think I could do it pressured by a writing group.

  2. LOL, Guess the universe is on your side for writing. Too funny.

  3. Good one--the boxed set. It's something I've been wondering about.

  4. I'm like Alex, I don't think I could write under that kind of pressure. It would make me nervous and I'd end up doing nothing. Although lately that seems to be what I'm doing all the time anyway LOL.
    Thanks for the links!

  5. Thanks for the links. Goodness knows I use "very" way too much! Good luck with the scene. :)

  6. Funny. I've done something similar and once the pressure was off I was good to go.

  7. You're having the same week as I'm having. You're right, the scene will be even better.

  8. Good luck with the scene, Ken. Thank you for the links.

  9. Love the "very" link - great to use with my students!

  10. Thanks for the links. Saved by the trip, huh? Whatever works.
