Seven Writing Links -- Volume 144

It's been a hectic week.  Crit group meeting, surprise birthday party, eating too much cake, helping daughter with her pre-calculus class.  I'm soooo looking forward to sleeping this weekend.

Well, maybe I'll work on my IWSG anthology story too.  We'll see.

Anyway, have a great weekend and enjoy the links!

  1. Good luck with that story. And thanks yet again for the links.

  2. I miss pre-calculus. I hope that went well.

  3. Good luck with the NaNo prep. I need to get on this too. :-)

  4. Thanks for the links, Ken. Keep going with that story.

  5. Excellent links. Pre-calculus, eh? I went back to school myself a couple years ago so I'd be able to help the kids through math, but now that my son is in calculus, I feel pretty worthless on that front. Why is it so easy to forget these things?

    Hope you had a fabulous weekend and got your writing done!
