This week I applied for jobs, ran errands, cleaned our kitchen and promptly messed it up again, and played video games with my husband (one morning I woke up to a pile of money and upgraded weapons! Woot!).
Here's some weekend reading for y'all: my favorite links this week.
Well-liked Canadian politician Jack Layton might be the feature of a biopic, three months after his death.
Sarah Blackwood on Bella Swan, teenage girls, the female body, realism in young adult fiction, and feminism. She raises some interesting points, and the comments section is great (I recommend the threat regarding novels featuring actualised women who like traditionally feminine pursuits). I'll have to read "Breaking Dawn" for myself to see if I agree or not. It would give me an excuse to read Cleolinda's awesome and hilarious recap again.
Need some motivation? Nubby Twiglet shares her tips.
As a lover of maxi skirts year-round, I approve of Clothed Much featuring 5 ways to style a maxi in the colder months.
Two articles on writing: the first on finding your "cause", the second on "what to do when you feel like your writing is shit".
Happy weekend, everybody! I'm off to spend mine "occupying" my couch.
