No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links

writers-linksWelcome to No Wasted Ink’s Writer’s Link Mondays. One of the many hats I wear as an author is that of a Nanowrimo ML.

Many of the articles this week speak about Nanowrimo. If you are a fellow wrimo, I’m sure it will intrigue you and if not, it might help you learn more about the non-profit and why it has such a following.
