For the weekend: some writing-related reflections, news, and resources to enjoy.

Next: Are you ever discouraged by conference/fellowship/residency applications that require letters of recommendation? Cathy Day shares some solid advice.
This week brought my latest “First Looks” column for Fiction Writers Review. Go take a peek at the two forthcoming debut novels I’ve spotlighted this month.
John Warner reflects on his new “visiting instructor” title (complete with full-time status, benefits, and other pleasures).
Those of us interested in freelancing have likely heard about the service known as HARO (Help a Reporter Out). But do we understand how it works?
Have a great weekend. See you back here on Monday.
