Friday Links

Happy holidays and happy Friday! I’m afraid I have a rather short supply of links this week, mostly because I’m visiting my parents and not spending my usual endless hours per day online. But that said, I think this truncated list is a good one, so I hope you enjoy. Best wishes for the weekend. Don’t forget to get some writing done! Just a few days left in December to set all those excellent writing habits for the new year. Happy writing!
