Friday Links

Happy Friday, everyone! I’m personally having a difficult time wrapping my brain around the fact that it’s November. Of course, if you’re participating in NaNoWriMo, you’re well aware of the fact and — I hope — off and writing like a fiend to get your word count up.

As always, I come bearing some fun links for you all. I hope they make for a nice break, or maybe provide a bit of inspiration for your weekend. Enjoy, and happy writing!
