Tardy Wednesday Tweet Roundup

Welcome to my day-late Tweet Roundup. (Hope you read my interview with Holly Cupala yesterday--if you check out that post and leave a comment, you could win a book! I'll pick a winner on Monday.)

Today I offer a light lunch of tweets which link to some great posts and articles on craft, technology, interviews, and events among other things. Be sure not to miss Elizabeth Law's ECLIPSE movie review, which is linked to below. (I love her bit about hair.)

Click on the Twitter handles (@name) to see the original tweets (and get to each tweeter's page should you wish to follow them). Follow the links included below to read the articles or blog posts these tweeters recommend.

Remember--whether you're signed up with Twitter or not, you can read tweets and click links to find helpful blog posts, useful articles, and timely news bits (like the ones below).
