The Latest Links


Have had a busy week... 

With more stuff happening this weekend, so am looking to implement those procrastination busting tips from Monday's post. Who's with me? :) Three cheers for getting writing and other projects done!

In order to streamline my week a little, thought I would share the latest link discoveries as a weekend send off to you, my treasured blogging friends.

Here goes:

Tony Eldridge's Marketing Tips for Writers always has interesting fare, from a recent post by L. Diane Wolfe on preparing for speaking engagements to great writing tips.

As always, the Coffeehouse for Writers has great workshops running. A new session begins June 27. Their many offerings can be viewed here.

Taking a break to attack the WIP and other things that are calling my name. Will return around June 27.


What's the latest and greatest tip you've run across? Got any fabulous weekend plans?



Happy Father's Day weekend!


Blessings,
Karen
