Since it's a holiday weekend, I'm going to make this short and sweet.
My hot links from around the blog-o-sphere this week are:
(1) From the blog of The Bent Agency, a great post about editing out those 'as' and 'ing' phrases.
(2) Over on The Lasting Rose is a worth-reading post about choosing a great title for your blog that will encourage people to actually read it!
(3) On Your Writing Coach there's a great post on 8 Basic Creative Writing Tips.

My writing news this week: My plot board is looking wonderfully colorful as everything is finally coming together on my latest project. Chapter 1 has been started and I think I'm already in love with the hero...I'm thinking that's a good sign that I'm on the write track!

For our holiday weekend enjoyment, today I'm posting two drink recipes using flavored vodka.
TOASTED ALMOND FUDGE
2 oz. chocolate vodka
1 splash of orange juice
1 splash amaretto
Add all the ingredients except the club soda in the shaker with some ice. *After shaken, add your desired amount of club soda and pour.
3 oz. orange vodka
3/4 oz. orange juice
3/4 oz lime juice
and orange twist for garnish (optional)
Please remember to always drink responsibly and never drink and drive!
Enjoy the day!
