Check out my Writers’ Corner update 09/03/2017!
And have I got some nice articles for you this week! In Writers Corner there is one about consensual non-monogamy (CNM), or Maybe Monogamy Isn’t the Only Way to Love. It poses an interesting idea that may be material for contemporary romance (definitely for my book 2 of the Suckers Trilogy that I’m currently rewriting!). There is also an article of Word vs. Scrivener. I use both and have only recently found out the ‘speak’ button in Word. I find both programs invaluable for my writing. There’s also an article about How Your Birth Order Can Predict the Person You’ll Become. So having a bit of backstory to your characters may help define them. There are more articles, have a browse.
The biggest hit by far this past week has been the 30+ Free E-Books That Will Help You Master Filmmaking in Focus on Filming. I haven’t had the time to download the books yet as I know I haven’t got time to read them myself. One day though…
If you wake up during the night to pee, there’s an article in Health Herald that the FDA just approved a Drug to Limit Frequent Waking to Urinate. I hate it when I have to get up for this in the middle of the night and I have found that you can train your body. Just resist the urge for as long as you can for three nights. If that doesn’t work, maybe this drug is for you 🙂 . There’s also good news for severe asthma sufferers and certain terminal cancer patients.
I got visions of Total Recall when I read that NASA wants to put a giant shield around Mars so we can live there. There really seems to be no limit as to what we can do and where we can go these days. You can find the article in Sci-Non-Fi. There’s also an article on 10 Smart Accessories for Your Car. They’re not as spectacular as I had hoped, but then again, I don’t own eight of them. Yet. And check out the article on BioLite’s new CampStove 2.
Pretty Pictures has lots of articles on how to improve your photography. I like the ones on Lightning, Creating Fours Seasons In One Photo, and Learn How to Use Tone Curves (okay, the last two are more a Photoshop articles). There’s also Going to Be a Spectacular Starry Light Show in the Skies This Month, so keep your battery pack charged!
