Friday Links

Happy Friday, everyone! Despite technically being a short week, it took forever to get to the weekend. Not quite sure what’s up with that. However, I’m prepared with an assortment of links to distract you until that final gong signals you’re free to go play. Of course, if you work in publishing, land of Summer Fridays, that will be sooner rather than later.

Wishing you all an enjoyable weekend, filled with fun and sun, or at least some wonderful reading and writing. Enjoy!
