Ten habits of highly paid freelance writers – it always sounds so easy…

Mittens in silk alpaca yarn – I’m considering knitting these but I’m not sure… I have two skeins of pink and one of snot green… what do you think? Maybe I should try looking for another pattern and make the mittens with stripes instead… Also found Aili’s Mittens via Ravelry, they are sure pretty too… Did you know I hate looking for knitting patterns? It’s so time consuming and difficult.

    Wow. Do I LOVE these links! You always find neato stuff. Have you committed to doing the NaNo this year? I’m not sure…

    I rarely have lots of photos at my blog, but when I was uploading them I thought of you, because they actually turned out pretty well, and they are really colorful. Your photos are alway luscious and colorful. Anyway, check them out if you wish.

    Have a lovely week!

    Thank so much for the links! Great!

  6. Thanks for the NaNo link! I’ll be writing for the first time this year, and I’m sure it will be a great help! Good luck with your novel as well. I wish I could write in Swedish AND English like you do. My family all came from Sweden one hundred years ago, but my grandparents decided not to teach their children Swedish because they wanted them to be “more” American. Very silly, and now Swedish-Minnesotans think of Sweden in terms of lutefisk at Christmas and wooden horses.

  7. I have just finished actually reading the NaNo book and it was great! I love her idea about phase outlines and the part about setting writing goals by writing down the next four things that will happen to the character/plot. Intend to try the “dice” game for not-quite-random plot developments as well. This will really be helpful come November 1st.
