Links and Things for May 18, 2012

I’ve slacked off on the blog this week, my apologies. But I did find some interesting things in the meantime that I wanted to share. Hope you enjoy!

Blog Posts of Note

Straight White Male: The Lowest Difficulty Setting There Is by John Scalzi – An interesting post over at Whatever that pokes privilege with a pointy stick.

#The50 Things Every Creative Should Know by Jamie Wieck – Found this thanks to @freshnsteezy. Though it relates mostly to visual art, I found myself nodding at each point because creativity is creativity, regardless of your chosen medium.

When Publishing Goes Wrong…Starring Undead Press by Mandy DeGeit – Wow. Just wow. It’s hard to believe people can be this crazypants, but apparently they can. A reminder to us all: be careful about the markets you submit to.

Free Fiction

“The Tome of Tourmaline” by Ken Liu

“Ravages of Time” by Alex Shvartsman

Other Interesting Stuff

Interview with Chuck Wendig at The Contextual Life – I love his writing style on Terrible Minds and have added Blackbirds to my to-read list.

Geek’s Guide to the Galaxy Podcast: Episode 60: Brian Greene – Lovingly referred to as the “string theory guy” in our house, Greene delves into all sorts of mind blowing topics, like the notion that our universe and everything in it may be a hologram of sorts.
