Seven Writing Links -- Volume 181
Well, this week was pretty much a disaster writing-wise. Instead of making up for last week's lack of production, I doubled down and managed to write even less this week.
I left work on Friday with good attentions, determined to spend the late evening hours writing up a storm, but then decided I was too tired to be creative and headed off to bed. The plan was to rise early the next morning and write, but that's when I discovered the family (including me) was spending the day at the North American Auto show down in Detroit.
So much for writing.
(Side note: The Ford exhibit featured a virtual reality simulator that made you feel as though you were diving off a skyscraper. Whoa!)
On Sunday I realized I had a beta read due for another author, so no writing on my manuscript that day either.
Monday through Thursday was then ruined by a bout of bad intestinal flu, so I missed my Wednesday blog post--again.
At least I managed to post these links today. Enjoy them and have a great weekend!
Oh, and stay healthy too!
