No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links

writers-linksAs you may guess from the articles that I write for No Wasted Ink, I am heavy into paper bound journaling.  I bullet journal, keep a daily journal, and use composition books to brainstorm stories and outline novels in via handwriting.  While there are general writing articles on the list as always, this week I wanted to focus more on what others are doing with their journals.
