Spring Cleaning

Friday, April 6th, 2012

In my preferred version of spring cleaning, I’ve been going through some of my old links to resources lately, trying to decide if there’s a better way to organize them and keep track of things that I wanted to use later. In among the broken links and things I meant to read but haven’t gotten to, I’ve been rediscovering some old favorites. I thought I’d share a few of them here.

Always good for a smile: Allie Brosh’s funny take on grammar on the internet in this post, specifically as it relates to the “alot” situation.

On a more serious note, Pat Holt has some very good reminders and tips in this blog post on ten common problems that writers tend to miss in their own work.

And lastly, because it’s always fun and interesting to see a child’s perspective on familiar stories – but mostly as an excuse to post a video of a particularly adorable little girl – here is a three-year-old explaining the plot of Star Wars.

I’ll probably end up sharing more as I keep going through my lists, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy these!
