Monday Mentions: Sniper Cats & Writing Tips

I am this close to having my edits on the LOST AND FOUND thriller completed to send back to the editor. And I am THIS CLOSE to having all my lines learned in the current theater project we rehearse nearly every night. Also, there have been some challenges in one of my membership organizations that have me (and many others) concerned and so overtime dealing with that has created unexpected deadlines. So I’m putting on my flame-retardant sparkles for the duration.

In between times, the usual writer-icity deadlines continue to flog and dog my calendar, and I’ve been a wee bit remiss keeping up with my Sweet Tweets over at the Twitter-verse. I hope y’all will forgive me…very soon I’ll be back up to speed on everything.

Monday Mentions is the mash-up-day of all the neato-torpedo links and videos, pet schtuff and bling and writer-icity crappiocca collected over the past week. Some of this “schtuff” can be hard to categorize and may fit more than one topic so I urge you to at least scan them all.
