Roll Call

Some weeks I write more, other weeks I read more. That's the natural pulse and rhythm of my life.

This week has been more for reading than writing - of books and papers for school, of fun reads I want to catch up on (you can see my Goodreads profile for what's caught my fancy just now), and of blogs that really strike a chord with me.

Listed below are several of the blog posts that really stood out to me this week, including one open competition you ought not to miss (though you need to get your entry in before the 12th!). Take a look at the links below for some great insights for writers.
