Happy Monday!  It is time for ten links to amazing articles about the craft of writing here on No Wasted Ink.  There is a bit of bias toward science fiction writing in this months links, but since I generally highlight science fiction and fantasy authors and concepts here, I didn’t feel anyone would mind that.  Enjoy!
