Author Inspiration and Last Week’s Writing Links

Ciao, amici! This is Thanksgiving week here in the United States, and as you're reading this, I'm either preparing or lying in bed thinking about everything I have to do.

Author Inspiration and This Week’s Writing Links

This week, my inspirational quote is a little different than usual. Father's Day is Sunday, so that's where my thoughts are---not on the week behind me, but on a day coming up.

City Sidewalks

♩  ♪  ♫  ♬   City sidewalks, busy sidewalks...  ♬  ♫  ♪ ♩ That's all I feel safe in saying. That's a common enough phrase, but beyond this could be copyright issues.
