Welcome to another Monday of No Wasted Ink’s writers links.  As I am a science fiction and fantasy author, for the most part, I tend to read articles relating to that genre.  This week, I have several entries for fellow writers in these genres in addition to the regular tips.  Pour yourself a cup of joe and sit back.  There is some interesting reading here should you choose to go forth.
