Friday Links

Happy Friday! How’s your month going? We’re coming up on the mid-point for March, so I hope you’re making progress with your writing goals — both of the month and for the year. Time zips along, after all. No procrastinating, no excuses. Just get out there this weekend and commit words to paper or pixels.

Of course, I have links for you, too, so you might want to keep a few minutes free to check them out. There are some words of wisdom for writers, book recommendations, and so on. There should be a little something for everyone. Enjoy, and happy writing!
