NaNoWriMo is upon us, Gentle Reader. And lest you think of giving up remember Oscar’s wise words:
“Books are never finished, they are merely abandoned.”
~ Oscar Wilde
Or if you want something a little more harsh:
“Some editors are failed writers, but so are most writers.”
~ T. S. Eliot
So for NaNo I thought you might enjoy some 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.
