No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links

writers-linksThe topics for this week’s link roundup are a range of subjects, they feature more about handwriting, marketing as an author, and general writing topics. I’ve also included an article about slide rules. Why? Well, Robert Heinlein’s science fiction is filled with references to this mathematical tool and I’ve been fascinated about them for that reason. Call it a quirk!

  1. A great list of links this week, Wendy!

    One of the advantages to being an old codger is that I still have the slip stick I used in college. How old am I? Well, let’s just say that I was one of only three students in my freshman engineering class who had a handheld electronic calculator in addition to a slide rule. It would add, subtract, multiply and divide. That’s it, It cost $200 and with a minimum wage of $1.65 per hour, it took me a long time to save up enough money to buy it.

    Thanks again for the great list! 🙂

    1. I remember when calculators cost that much. My father purchased one for several hundred dollars to do his taxes with. I have never used a slide rule, but I know about them through reading classic science fiction. The other day when I was looking at computers at the local store, I met a retired engineer who frowned at the computers and declared his calculations were just as fast and an accurate with his slide rule. The poor clerk was confused by the reference. I just smiled. Slide rules got us to the moon. 🙂
