Friday Links

Happy Friday, everyone! We’re having something of a grey day here in SoCal, and rumor has it we might even get a little rain by this afternoon. Right now I’m pushing through my to-do list so that I can take advantage of my favorite sort of reading weather and curl up later with a good book. Perfect kick off to the weekend!

But first, I have links for you all. If you’re looking for a good read, or some writing inspiration, these should fit the bill. Wishing you a wonderful, creative weekend. Enjoy!
