So I caught my son’s cold this weekend, and just as I assured myself that it couldn’t feel worse, it does. Whatever plans this weekend were cancelled, and I remained housebound, blowing my nose, snuffling like a walrus, coughing, aching, and cursing my bad luck.
I’m finding, however, this lack of being able to do much of anything tends to clog up the creative juices. I was on such a roll last week, too. I nearly finished reworking a short story to publish, and had two more ideas for short stories ‘in the works’. That, too, came to a screeching halt.
Darn you, stupid cold germs!
So I offer a few links to interesting articles instead of anything creative or interesting on my part;
PaperGrader- online analyzer of your writing. I love using these things to see where I’ve gone wrong, and more often than not, where I’ve gone right.

Kindle-singles publishing site– If you have a story read to publish, check out this site. Remember to read through guidelines.
Free printable blog planner– I use Evernote and a MS Word spreadsheet to organize myself, but this is handy too.
