No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links


Here we are at another Monday.  It is time for another batch of writer’s links here at No Wasted Ink.  This week I got into the nitty gritty of old fashioned paper communication, from research in old libraries, to printing paper, and even origami pop-up books.  I hope you enjoy this different spin on the modern age and go a little analog with me.

  1. Hey Wendy, great stuff here!
    Especially liked “library love.” Having just finished grad school, I’ve logged more old school research hours in the traditional “stacks” than any one person should ever have to!

    1. I love libraries. I spent plenty of time in my university library during my college days as well. I occasionally return to do research for books too. As handy as the internet is, you find much better source material in the “stacks”. 🙂
