I forgot about daylight savings time or whatever the heck it's called (as did my husband) and so we both woke up on Sunday, went to grab breakfast at one of our fave places--only to find we were there at 10, not 11, and so it wasn't open. (Luckily, we always carry a book with us)

I don't mind it being light earlier in the day, but I really REALLY hate how it's now going to start getting dark at 4 PM. Blurgh.

Anyway! Enough about that--let's hit the links!

But first, congrats to Sammy and Kristen, who each won an ARC of The Mockingbirds

Ok, now for the links:

From Genreality--overcoming writing fear

Which would you rather have--great reviews and loads of awards...or out-of-this world sales? A fab question posed by agent Rachelle Gardner

This account of plagiarism made my draw drop--yes, it's THAT bad. For a shorter (and very funny) take on the magazine editor who did this, check out this link from Smart Bitches, Trashy Books

I think the title of this says it best: Getting Published is Not a Crap Shoot

Debunking myths about "the writing life"

Talk about comfort food--perfect yellow cake with chocolate cream cheese frosting...mmmmm

My family always makes fun of me for constantly lugging around this huge tote bag. But I always have it with me since it has EVERYTHING I'll ever need including: my books, nail polish, nail polish remover (the wipes!), my makeup bag (which holds A LOT), a tank top, tap shorts (they take up thismuch room), Band-Aids, a mini flashlight, my miniemergency
kit (http://glitzy-glam.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=22&products_id=136), some pens, my journal, crossword puzzle booklet, an electronic scrabble dictionary, my key ring, my wallet, a water bottle, my camera, and my Ipod).
It's a lot, sure, but like you, boredom is never an issue!

Love, Hannah
