Seven Writing Links -- Volume 166

This Week's Writing Links

Sigh... Another week gone without a Wednesday post. Surprisingly, it's not from a lack of topics about which to post. In fact, I have more ideas queued up than I've had for a long while, but time is tight these days and I'm loathe to steal time away from my story-writing to ruminate here. 

Of course, I'll definitely be posting next Wednesday since it'll be the Insecure Writer's Support Group bloghop and I'd never miss that one. Alex does not tolerate slackers! :) 

Enjoy the links and have a great weekend!

  1. You don't want to be caught slacking.

    1. True. Alex is always watching.

    2. Does Alex have eyes everywhere? It makes me wonder if he has coded a way to keep track of all IWSG bloggers. :)
      Just kidding.
      Happy Writing!
