In today’s Monday’s Writing Links, the AV Club interviews ‘100 Bullets’ writer Brian Azzarello, Tor asks what the first book you bought was, JA Konrath uses sales figures to argue in favor of the self publishing/Amazon route and the coolest child’s nursery ever is unveiled.
The holidays are right around the corner, so I hope everyone is being productive this week in order to relax with family and decompress next week. Everyone needs a break, even from writing. It’s okay. Your manuscript will still be there when you get back and your characters will be just as dysfunctional as when you left them. So, especially for those NaNoWriMo participants out there, make that final push this week so you can take that much needed break next week. It will be much deserved. Until then, links!
