NaNoWriMo Links & Quotes Tip Sheet (Important for Writers)

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

    LBGTQ reunion romance featuring your favorite reluctant werewolf dandy, the return of a certain quietly efficient Beta, and a very unexpected gift.
