Link Treats

Time to share another collection of links with you. A little bit of everything today. Enjoy!

Fat and fit?
Andreas Heinakroon takes on another controversial topic with his typical aplumb. Something worth thinking about.

A Compromise: How To Be A Reasonable Prescriptivist
Kory Stamper talks about the ongoing duel between prescriptivist and descriptivist language folk. I have run-ins with the kind of prescriptivist she talks about quite often. A lexicographer’s trebuchet would be handy.

MLK: Sanitized for Their Protection
The sanitizing of Martin Luther King is something that’s troubled me for years now. The Weekly Sift looks further into the co-opting of a brilliant revolutionary.

Winter Well: Speculative Novellas About Older Women
This link is nothing but shameless self-promotion for me and my fellow Winter Well authors. A starred review from Publishers Weekly!

You Are Worth It
Feeling down and not so thrilled with yourself. Give this post by The Belle Jar a read. She’s talking to you.

Česky: Obránci hradu

I think there’s a trebuchet in this picture. I love it anyway. Česky: Obránci hradu (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Link Treats

Where have all the link treats gone? Well, they’ve been sitting in my drafts folder waiting for me to get off my ass and post them, is where. *sigh* It’s been kind of busy/nonblogmotivational around here lately. (and that is so a word) There’s been writing, just not of the blog. (New story about to be submitted if I can come up with a title! Psychic Depression-era noir-ish detective thing–any suggestions?)

Not That Girl
I’m not that girl either. Oh wait. I totally am. Some fine writing from the Belle Jar

Today’s Time Waster: Literary Figure Collective Nouns
John Scalzi with a new game. Lots of creativity in the comments.

Evolution 101
Andreas Heinakroon talks about evolution. It’s fun and smart, as his posts always are.

10 Worst Mistakes That Authors of Alternate History Make
Good stuff to take into consideration if you’re writing alternate history. I think I did all right with “So The Taino Call It.” Did you read it? What do you think?

Rules of Writing: Get to the Fucking Monkey
Some good writing advice from Justin Robinson plus a killer song.

That Girl

Okay, how could I not use this random pic?
