Trying to Get Myself Together Links

I don’t know what’s up with me today– or yesterday, or the day before– I am having trouble connecting with the world. I suspect that I am just overwhelmed. You know having too much to do can make you do nothing? I’m kind of there. Yesterday, at my writing date, I was having such a hard time concentrating. That said, here are some links until I can get it back together.

      I like playing around with these “writing rules.” Another one is, “show don’t tell doesn’t mean that you don’t need to tell!”
