Sunday Notes and Links – October 2, 2016

I’m a little late with this post, but it is still Sunday, at least in my part of the world. The week ended up being busier than I expected. Unfortunately I also broke the streak of writing a couple journal pages every day, almost always in my Seven Seas Writer which is nearly full. I wrote at least two pages for 61 days straight until Friday. I missed yesterday too. So it’s time to start over.

I’m also late with my monthly currently inked post but hope to get that put up tomorrow. The good news is I did a lot of writing. In fact, I tried to get ahead by starting the currently inked post last weekend but then I wrote a couple of those pens dry during the week and had to redo the writing samples and photos.

Fountain Pen Day is less than a month away. If you missed it, I’m doing a giveaway on that day but you need to get your entry in by then so don’t wait.

The Colorado Pen Show is Oct 7 – 9 in Denver while the Michigan Pen Show is the following weekend just outside Detroit.

Well, on to the links…
