Friday Links

Most definitely TGIF! It’s been a busy week, running up to the 4th of July holiday next week. With it falling on Wednesday, I suspect none of us are quite sure if that means people will mostly be around, or if everyone is just going to head for the hills today and not return until a week from Monday. We’re actually closed Wednesday through Friday next week, so that answers that question for some of you.

I hope those of you who are in the US have some fun holiday plans, and that the rest of the world has a good week in general! But first…links to kick off the weekend. Enjoy, and happy writing!
