Blogosphere:

I want to read the book featured here.

I read this post on the Little Coffee Fox blog and it reminded me of a good way to help with writing.

I love notebooks. I buy them and then never write in them. So this article gives suggestions on how to use all of the notebooks I collect. If you collect notebooks too, you might find this essay and links useful.

How was your October? Let me know in the comments below.
