Links from Kaye, third edition

Here are a few more links I found intriguing. If you've got time to go clicking around, something here might catch your interest.

For writers:

You have to see Marian's digital processor. Really cool piece of equipment, and versatile.

As a former computer programmer/systems engineer (note the "engineer" part), the steps listed in this next link are all things I do already, left over from my telecommuting jobs, for which I had to account for my time and report how much time was spent on each project. This is essential if you're ever audited for taxes, to show you are seriously pursuing a career in writing, since so many of us have so little published work to show for all our hard labor.

If you're self-publishing, it's easy and inexpensive to copyright your online work, and should be done within 90 days of publication. There's even a link to do this online, complete with a tutorial.

Not a link, but a quote by way of Hank Phillippi Ryan:
"Noting in the world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not. Nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent. Genius will not. Unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not. The world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence, determination and hard work make the difference."
Calvin Coolidge.

Read 'em and weep--the facts and figures laid bare at the Cozy Chicks.

For readers:

Sadly, the last issue of ThugLit, maybe.

For readers and writers, a couple pieces of news, signs of our times.
