257200-MP_general.jpgSome hopefully helpful links for you today. A few are holiday related, like Lifehacker’s recommendation of Make’s open source gift guide (good for givers on a budget.) Or, too busy working to go to somebody’s lame holiday party? Use the excuse generator from Enlighten. Want some cool gifts for writers? The chicks at the Renegade Writer love the stuff from See Jane Work.
The Journalist’s Toolbox has resources on holiday business trends and dangerous toys/child safety. There are also travel tips, food, and holiday box office links on the miscellaneous page.
And a few that just aren’t really related to anything:
From the BBC, script formats for scriptwriters (might be different for US writers, though.)
Writer Unboxed has listed several sites that can be used to inspire or break writers block, so check them out.
