Seven Writing Links -- Volume 154

Question:  When is the worst time to come down with a cold and chills?

Answer:  The day after your furnace breaks down.  

It's not quite as bad as it sounds.  The furnace is partially functioning, so the house is holding somewhere around the low 60's.  And we have a gas fireplace that helps keep the family room warm.  

Last night I attended my monthly critique group meeting and received some positive feedback on my story.  That's the kind of thing that fires up my creative writing juices and I usually attack my manuscript the next day with a vengeance.  Right now, however, all I feel like doing is crawling under an electric blanket and sleeping for a day or two.   Hope this cold goes away soon.  

Have a great weekend and enjoy the links!
