If you haven't checked out the SFWA LJ lately, you might want to look at them again. SFWA has been doing a lot of cool things lately, like this LJ with interviews, commentary and writing tips. It makes me want to join them again.
The Blood Red Pencil blog is something I stumbled across (can't remember who put a link there, Matt Staggs I think). I haven't read much, but what I have read has been good. Nice writing advice.
Jim Hines is giving his books away for practically nothing. Come on, books for nothing, chicklets for free. What could possibly go wrong (contest ends tomorrow morning).
