I came down with a cold this weekend and bam! It's like everything shut down. I still feel pretty bad, actually, but I had to drop by here and say hi to everyone--and say congrats to the winner of ARC of Beautiful Darkness, Lynsey, who once saw her mother open a can of green beans, and--well, she hasn't touched them since!

I'm getting ready to head back to bed, but I have loads of links that need to be shared...and check back next week for your chance to win a copy of Mockingjay!

A writer's worst fear, or Honey, I Deleted Your Novel

From Writer Unboxed, posts on cliffhanger chapter endings, common writing mistakes, and a great one on burying all your I can't(s)

More problems at Dorchester (and news on that here as well)-- and Barnes and Noble

Agent and author Nathan Bransford on writing query letters -- and a good explanation of what publishers do

An editor talks about passing on a book--this one is fascinating, as editors don't usually open up so publicly about books they've declined that have gone on to do well

Pimp My Novel guest post on envy

From Muderati, What Is A Writer? and a lovely post from Tess Gerristen on The Unplanned Career--"And that no, most of us don't plan out every move in our career because baby, in this career, there ain't a lot of planning you can do.

Maggie Stiefvater offers advice and encouragement about writing in-- Seven Steps to Writing a Novel

A cold in August? That's rotten. I hope you feel better soon. Because while Sudafed works wonderfully for nasal decongestion, it does nothing for looming deadlines.
