Last Week’s MM: Podcasts and Live Shows
I’m certain that at one point or another while scrolling through your facebook feed, you’ve seen someone share or like something from IFLScience. They have grown to have over 18 million likes.
I mention them today because I think that they are a good resource. Plus, they are entertaining if you’re a nerd like me.
They’re articles catch my attention several times a day. I feel like they help keep me up to date on cutting edge science that I may not have even known to go looking for otherwise.
Beyond that, good science fiction is rooted in good science. Being knowledgeable about a subject that you’re writing about is simply responsible. I often find articles through them that enlighten and teach me. Some of their articles even spark whole concepts for stories, or can be stored in my brain to add details to enrich worlds.
They also have a not facebook website. I suggest checking it out. And if you haven’t subscribed to their facebook page, you’re missing out.
Have you ever finished a project, thought it was just perfect, and then realized that you did something wrong?
That happens to me more then I’d like.
For example, remember that cover I put up the other day? Well, I messed up several things on it. I made it all look like I wanted, and then I looked up the ratio size that a book cover could be. I was way off! I had to squish and stretch the background. I had to create so many more layers and tweak things. Finally, I got it looking good again.
Then I realized that I had put the wrong date on it. Sigh.
