No Wasted Ink Writer’s Links

Here we are welcoming in another Monday! This week the writer’s links are mainly general writing tips, a little about marketing, a little about the writing process, and a nice article about retelling myths and fairytales that I found quite useful. So sit back with your favorite beverage and relax with a couple of articles. I hope you’ll find them as entertaining and helpful as I did.

As you may know, I am an indy author who loves to take charge of my books when it comes to publishing and marketing them. This week are links in that spirit from using Scrivener, getting your books into libraries, and tips on self-publishing. There is a little bit about science fiction and fairy tales too! I hope you enjoy these. I feel they are a cut above my usual curation.

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.
