It’s been an up and down week for me, and all I can say is THANK GOD for my fellow writers and critique partners. So for them, here you go:
Here are some of my favorite writing-related tweets from the past week. Hope you find them useful.

- This is an awesome list. It’s PR Daily’s 20 (more) signs you’re a word nerd from Steve Vittorioso (@savittorioso). These include “You know that Chicago style doesn’t refer to deep-dish pizza,” and “Excessive exclamation points drive you to drink.” Ha! [via @KatheStanton]
- Writer Jennifer Jensen (@JenJensen2) shares her inspiring experience in Can a Writer’s Blog Really Help You Get an Agent? Hey, it worked for her.

- If you’re a romance fan (and really, who isn’t?), check out this list of RomanceNovels.me’s Top 1,000 Best Romance Novels. It took them four years to finalize the list.

Have a great weekend!
