No Wasted Ink Writers Links

It is no secret that I am a huge Jane Austen fan. I am writing a fan-based series of books based on her novel “Persuasion” and I’ve read every book she has written. When I discovered that Austen was featured in a few articles this past month, I had to share!  I also have several great writing craft articles for you as well. I hope you enjoy this week’s selection of links here on No Wasted Ink.
