I am trying to create a link in one of my stories that will go to an external website (eg. google.com) but it seems like Twine (or at least Harlowe) has no way of actually doing this (looked in the wiki/manual and couldn't find anything). Also couldn't find anything online. Is there a way to make a link go to an external website or can I just not do it?

You can place external urls in the link markup. 

[[http://www...]]

[[Click here.|http://www...]]

Edit. Sorry that's sugarcube. 

(link: "click here")[(goto-url: 'http://www...')]

There's also an (open-url:) macro.
