If you’ve found yourself wondering where all the good writing’s gone, I’ve decided to share some of my favorite links with you on a weekly basis! It might be short fiction, it might be news articles, it might be random blog posts from me and from others!
None of these links are sponsored. I really just liked them!
Don’t forget, you can check out previous weeks’ lists in the Fave Links Friday category!
This week’s links are a lot more fun than last weeks, but I strongly encourage you to call your representatives and tell them you won’t stand for concentration camps. You can use Common Cause to find out who your reps are and what they stand for if you aren’t sure.
