The Turndog Tales: 30/09/2012 – 05/10/2012





Welcome to the exciting world of Friday afternoon. Great things always happen on a Friday, and I hope to keep the streak going with this week’s Turndog Tales.

So, without further ado, I give you the best stories I’ve come across in the last seven days. I hope you enjoy…

Do You Write Every day?

If you don’t all is not lost, at least that is the message from Nathan Bransford. I probably do write every day, in some form or other. However, it isn’t always in a scheduled and processed manner.

Nanowrimo Is Coming

The time of year when everyone writes a hell of a lot is approaching. You have no doubt heard of it, and you may have participated, but did you know some great books came out of it?
