Seven Writing Links -- Volume 136

Not much to report this week, other than the fact that I saw both Suicide Squad and Ghostbusters. Perhaps not the most complicated of plots, but still fun if you're into over-the-top action or comedy.  Hmmm.... wonder what I'll watch this weekend.

Enjoy the weekend and the writing links.

  1. Didn't see Ghostbusters but enjoyed Suicide Squad. Considering it's made almost half a billion dollars in just two weeks, so did a lot of other people.

  2. Sometimes over the top is fun.

    My tip for working with interior designers - please make it easy on your poor formatter. LOL

  3. Thanks for the links! Ghostbusters and Suicide Squad look like fun. I don't get to the movies often, so the next one I'll likely see if Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them. :)

  4. We saw Suicide Squad which was a lot of fun. Sometimes depth is simply over-rated ;)

  5. Thanks as always for the links and I hope you have a great weekend, Ken. :)

  6. I really liked the mistake with reviews link and the query link. Always good links here. :)

  7. Thanks for the links, Ken! I always find a treasure trove at your blog!
    I saw Suicide Squad recently, too, and it was a edgy kind of fun - loved Will Smith as Deadshot, the best character in the movie (at least to my taste in characters, anyway.)

  8. Hi Ken! Thanks for the movie tips. I need something to think about instead of books. Appreciate the links as always.

  9. You find some fantastic links. Thanks!

  10. Hope you saw something great over the weekend!

  11. Gosh, can we trade weeks? Whew! Hey, thanks for the links.
