NaNoWriMo Links & Quotes Tip Sheet

NaNoWriMo is nearing its close, well at least rounding toward the finish line, Gentle Reader. And lest you think of giving up remember Oscar’s wise words:

“Books are never finished, they are merely abandoned.”
~ Oscar Wilde

I’m back from Singapore but a bit to jet lagged to really do much online at the moment. I promise I have a write up on the festival and the amazing city to come. I also managed to get through the first draft read through of SAS. Woot! (You guys, it’s really good.)

“Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.”
~ T. S. Eliot

So for NaNo I thought you might enjoy so really fun links to writing articles around the net! If you aren’t a writer, I apologize, and I promise to be back to my witty, useless, irreverent self in a few days.

“If the doctor told me I had six minutes to live, I’d type a little faster.”
~ Isaac Asimov
