Reflections on the Week That Was 5

December 6, 2009 at 4:22 am (Weekly Review) (, , )

Another good week over.  Starting to get some great responses from writers about what they think writing is.  Keep a look out because these posts are going to start coming soon.  Once again I have found some great links this week.

Recommend Read:

Kerrie Flanagan from The Writing Bug has decided to try reading a book a week (ReBooWee) in the wake of NaNoWriMo.  I personally think it is a great idea but know I don’t have the time at the moment. 

My Blog Posts – In case you missed anything:

When I went to the cinema – people watching can be great for your writing

Writing lessons I’ve learned from playing computer games.

Live in the world – creating fantasy worlds

If I were a flower – what flower would you be?

Other Writing Links:
