Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup and Poll

23 Oct


Here are some great links on writing, the industry, and all things book related. Some are serious, and some are just downright hilarious. We highly recommend you read them!

  • Writing By Hand Helps the Brain
  • – VERY interesting article on how writing by hand is good for your brain! (So start breaking out those notebooks!)

  • Stereomood
  • – Here’s a site that organizes its songs by tags like “Summer,” “melancholy,” “calm,” and “just woke up.” Great way for writers to find the perfect songs for their writing!

  • Behind the Scenes… “The Call”
  • – A transcript of “the call”.

  • Thinking Literally
  • – An interesting post concerning metaphors.

  • Superb Literary Hair
  • – Yes, that’s right. A post about the wonderful hairstyles of some notable writers! This made me chuckle.

Happy Saturday everyone! Be sure to share any interesting links/quotes you’ve come across in the comments!
