As long as I’m blocked on blogging (and no, I don’t want to talk about it), maybe it’s time to list some writing-related links I’ve been saving for just before National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) starts on November 1.

Meanwhile, here’s “10 Smart Things To Do When Writing” to get you (and me, too) revved and ready to write daily till we’re done.

Now, I’ve got some reading to do before I get back to writing.
