My presentation on story structure last night went well, so I can finally get back to writing again. As usual, being forced to organize my thoughts on the subject reminded me of things I need to fix in my story, so it was definitely worth the effort.
It didn't occur to me until just before the talk that this was the perfect time to be giving such a presentation, since NaNo is right around the corner, and trying to finish NaNo without a good outline is just plain hard. Hopefully a few of the attendees will be psyched for entering NaNo this year.
This week I'm also including a video you might enjoy. Chemists answer the question: How Much Candy Would Kill You?
Yes, we chemists are a strange lot. For example, the old timey name of lead acetate is "sugar of lead." Why did chemists call it this? Because it has a sweet taste. How did those chemists know this LEAD containing compound tasted sweet?
Take a wild guess.
Chemists didn't always live so long back in the old days.
Have a great weekend and enjoy the links!
P.S. For those of you watching on mobile devices, please let me know if the video doesn't work properly.
