Friday Links

TGIF! I hope you’ve all had a lovely week, and that you possibly indulged in a bit of fresh writing courtesy of my mini writing challenge. There were some wonderfully enthusiastic folks on Monday, but it’s been quiet since then so I can only assume you’re all busy scribbling.

However, Friday means links, and so here I am with a batch to keep you entertained through the weekend. There’s a bit of this, a bit of that… I hope you enjoy. Have a terrific weekend, and happy writing!
