Happy mid-week all! Some quick links for this week:

Simple editing tip from the Writer’s Digest blog: cut one word per sentence.

Much needed perspective from Tawna Fenske on editor tastes (and more importantly, how it relates to wine!).

This week’s Link of Awesome: if you’re writing a fantasy, make sure you take this quiz to avoid clichés. I think #33 is my favorite (also via GalleyCat; I seem to be in cliche-finding mode).

Now to try a new chicken pot pie recipe…
