Friday Round-Up - #55

Laura Spencer gives a light-hearted look at freelancer personalities, asking, "which one are you?" She describes the loner, the anti-corporate type, etc.

This week I discovered a shop catering to writers. Now, be mindful that this isn't a Christian site, so there's a few less than tasteful entries. Cafe Press sells mugs, shirts, tote bags, and other products with sayings relating to writing and other things. I ended up spending a half hour scrolling through their offerings. They're also more reasonable than some of the other websites with writer items.

A new antique/thrift store opened in our area a few weeks ago. Last Thursday, I stopped in to explore it. I picked up a cool item from the $1.00 table. It's called, "Punctuation and Capitalization Flipper." Over four hundred rules, definitions, and examples are arranged on quick-reference cards.

My fascination drew me to their website, and surprise, they have flippers on many subjects, including writing. They're great for people 6-Adult. I can think of many uses, but writers top my list. Homeschoolers would also benefit.

Have a great weekend!

Wow, thanks for this great info, Susan!

I have ordered from Cafe' Press, and was very happy with their service and pricing.

Isn't it fun to find bargains? That was a God thing for sure!

We had a wonderful weekend. I capped it off by editing a chapter of my book. Now, I'm on the Net visiting all of you. :)
