Saturday Grab Bag: Mashup and Poll

23 Oct

Mashup:

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.
