For those readers who don’t use Twitter or who didn’t catch these links the first time I tweeted them, I’ve decided to post a regular round-up of my most-popular links on writing, editing, memoir and grants for writers from the past month.
By doing this I also hope to point you in the direction of some of the great blogs for writers out there in the infinity of cyberspace.
Warning: potential time-suck.

As always, if you have any suggestions for what you’d like to see more of on this blog or on Twitter, please don’t hesitate to let me know in the comments.
