The Beginning Writer: Link Round-up For 4/19/13

I can’t believe another week has gone by already! And with the bombings in Boston, the explosion in Texas, and now one of the Boston bombers being killed, it’s been a very dramatic week. I’ve been keeping one eye on the news and one eye on my homework for days now.

But now it’s Friday, and in case you don’t know, every day I scour the internet looking for articles that are helpful to me as a beginning writer. When I find something, I will share it over Twitter. Each Friday, I will post what I call a link round-up of all the helpful articles I found that week.
