Oh my poor, neglected blog!
Lazy link stuff, mostly on writing
Writing Scenes: Cooking at the Right Temperature by Lorin Oberweger (a useful nudge as I trudge through scene after scene asking myself “What exactly is it I’m trying to accomplish here? And are there any more words I could use to describe ‘snow’?”)
The Tyranny of the Word Count by Sally Zigmond (Because word counts tyrannize me.)
Utopian for Beginners: An amateur linguist loses control of the language he invented (A long piece from the New Yorker via @lillithsaintcrow. The very definition of life imitating Borges)
The Nature of Fun: David Foster Wallace on Why Writers Write (The statutory link culled from Brain Pickings)
