After 30 busy days where I hardly saw my husband, cooked very few meals, and hardly cleaned the house, I am happy to say that I am a Nanowrimo winner. I wrote 51K words toward the rough draft of the second book in my upcoming trilogy. I also wrote several chapters of book one of this project to fill in some plot holes and make the story richer in general. Due to my focus on Nanowrimo, this week’s links will feature topics on this subject from others that also joined in the madness that is Wrimo.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my American readers of No Wasted Ink. I hope you have a wonderful holiday filled with family and friends gathering and enjoy lots of turkey. This week, I have some interesting links for you. The first one is not about writing, but about a certain mental process that would prove interesting in character building, others are articles about general writing habits. Enjoy!
