No Wasted Ink Writers Links

Welcome back to another Monday of writing links here on No Wasted Ink.  There is plenty here to entertain or inform you about the craft of writing. I hope you enjoy this week’s selection. I apologize for not having a links post last week, but I was away at a science fiction convention for a week and between the trip and prepping for the event, I missed a few posts here on No Wasted Ink. I’m doing my best to get back on track for you.
