Friday Links

Happy Friday, everyone! This week has galloped by, and I’m looking at a hugely busy weekend (yes, work), so I’m pretty much going to drop off some links and go. It’s a bit of an eclectic list this week, so I hope you find them entertaining. Now go read something wonderful. And don’t forget to write! Have a great weekend.

Listen to Benedict Cumberbatch Sing in Neverwhere – A snippet from the BBC4 radio audio production of Neil Gaiman’s Neverwhere, with Cumberbatch as the angel Islington.

  1. What an interesting and reflective round-up. I especially was moved by the article on Nora Ephron, who I’ve always adored. She had class and wit until the end and kept fighting and kept writing along the way. As one who watched my own vibrant, grab-the-world mother “exit” in the same way – it makes me smile knowing that Nora and my mom had the same spunk. Plus it inspires me as an author. We can offer up so many procrastinating reasons not to write and yet, Nora had the biggest obstacle of all to hold her down – and she kept on writing.

    1. I’m glad you enjoyed them. And yes, I’m a huge Ephron fan. I still can’t quite believe she’s gone. Such a talented, admirable lady.
