link salad is putting Firefox on a diet
Yeah, there were two other writing-related links I forgot to include in the original post (and the follow-up post).
First, The Periodic Table of Storytelling, built from TV Tropes. There’s some entertaining stuff in there.
And second, this post over at 2D Goggles? Yeah. That is so very much what it’s like, sometimes. (Both writing and running an RPG, now that I think of it.) Especially the bit with the tiger. <evil grin>
And then, because it seems a waste of a perfectly good link salad to stop at the writing-related material:
“The Possibilian” — a fascinating article about David Eagleman, a leading researcher on brain function and how we perceive time. His take at the end, on science and religion, is particularly engaging; there’s something to be said for celebrating how much we don’t know, and could potentially learn.
What makes a body obscene? — tooth_and_claw and anybody else who really digs androgyny/playing with gender perception/etc. will dig the image. The story of what happened to the magazine is also particularly interesting.
Poor Jane’s Almanac — a fascinating tale of Benjamin Franklin’s sister, and what it meant to be a woman in the eighteenth century.
Okay, that’s enough for this round. Now hopefully my tab groupings will be a little less absurdly overcrowded.
