Welcome back and happy Friday! If you, like me, are doing NaNoWriMo this year, congratulations for taking on the challenge and making it this far. I hope this can act as a good break between your writing sprints. If you’re not doing NaNo, you still deserve a break.
Happy November, everyone! For our first Around the Web post of the month, I have two articles about writing the other, a look at Elton John’s reading habits, and a list of words that have been borrowed between languages.
Hope you enjoy!
