Writer Wednesday

Juicy linky goodness! Awesome links for today plus a writing excercize, mostly because I had a friend complaining of writer's block today.

Excercise to banish writer's block:
I've used this excercise before in my own blocked moments, and in my classes. I'm a huge fan of the cut up.
Write a bio of yourself in about a paragraph (that's 5-7 sentences). Cut the paragraphy down to individual words. Mix and match.You'll be surprised what you come up with--a completely different life history! You can do this with newspaper articles, magazines, old books you don't mind cutting up, poems, whatever...
