I haven’t been reading many articles thanks to having a novel to write. I missed out on last week’s because of a busy weekend writing and hanging out with friends. So here’s two weeks-worth of pretty interesting articles and links. The next week is going to be filled with frantic writing to make sure I hit my 50,000 word goal with Nanowrimo. Also, starting tomorrow I have a fun surprise! Come back tomorrow to see what’s happening!

I read a lot of articles and blogs during the week. I do this for a few reasons. I like knowing a lot of things about a lot of things, though this is not always the best thing in terms of staying productive. It’s easy to find myself reading, clicking links, reading more and then I’ve spent 20 minutes reading about everything from new bridge designs in Montreal to the science of moisture wicking fabrics etc. I have various methods to keep this under control which I’ll share at another time. For right now, I want to share some of the articles I’ve read this week that are worth sharing. I may have already tweeted the articles or not.
