Post-Holiday Grab Bag

Yesterday’s Independence Day observance leaves today – a Thursday – orphaned between a holiday and a weekend – not an enviable position for a day to occupy. This particular Thursday has all the appeal of Monday without the preceding two days of laziness to take away the sting. More so for those of us who hosted barbecues, and stayed up far too late enjoying company, fireworks, and the leftovers that we might have grazed on as we cleaned up the kitchen after everyone departed at midnight.

Might have done that.

Might have regretted it this morning.

But most of us (myself included) went to the office anyway.

Here’s a grab bag of entertainment to get you through the Monday-That-Isn’t:

1. Yesterday, I guest-posted at Writers in the Storm about how writers’ personal and marketing skills can help them succeed as published authors.

2. Author, blogger and friend Tammy Salyer has a fantastic Independence Day post “For the Ones We Lean On.”

3. Heather Webb announces the winners of her recent Query Corral contest at Between the Sheets

4. Chuck Wendig interviews Alex Adams (author of The White Horse) at TerribleMinds.

and, last but not least, NickMom has The Ramen That Describes Me Perfectly. (Hello, Dinner!)

What’s the best thing you found on the web this morning? Let me know in the comments!
