Having trouble with my story today, so I took a moment to refresh my memory of the 3 Act Structure. My search took me to this brilliant little page which was just what the Story Doctor ordered.

That's when I realized I accidentally solved all my problems before the story even started, which is why (of course) that I can't actually write the silly thing. So back to square one where poor Eryka gets the important things taken away from her by her evil author.

Sharing strangeness from my morning brain. Let me know what you think. It may (or may not) become a real story.

I love stuff like this. I want a color wheel designed from this too. Maybe I'll make one myself.
 
A Rainbow of Wavelengths - This still image is based on data from NASA's Solar Dynamics Observatory, or SDO, showing the wide range of the sun’s wavelengths – invisible to the naked eye – that the telescope can view. SDO converts the wavelengths into an image humans can see, and the light is colorized into a rainbow of colors.

Yellow light of 5800 Angstroms, for example, generally emanates from material of about 10,000 degrees F (5700 degrees C), which represents the surface of the sun. Extreme ultraviolet light of 94 Angstroms, which is typically colorized in green in SDO images, comes from atoms that are about 11 million degrees F (6,300,000 degrees C) and is a good wavelength for looking at solar flares, which can reach such high temperatures. By examining pictures of the sun in a variety of wavelengths scientists can track how particles and heat move through the sun's atmosphere.

The non-entertaining version of the movie. (Hence the reason Hollywood didn't give the apes our technology in the first place).

Flying Pen Press is shutting it's publishing arm. Most of its titles are going to be out of print by the end of January 2014. It's a pity this happened, but not surprising. The publisher has shown a consistent tendancy to break the contract over royalty statements. He kept not sending them as promised and the one he did send was a year+ late.

Of course, the letter I received tells me that I get my story rights back as of January 2013 (last year), which means I can republish Liberty Jones before then without hassle. HA!

I forgot to share this on Sunday. A little RPG #writing  commentary. (A lot, actually). Want to know what a project spec is and how it works? Here's my take, along with how I deal with them.

Let's try this again...

Death by ergonomics. Be afraid. Be VERY afraid... of your desk.

Mental illness doesn't make them crazy. Video games don't make them violent. Maybe we need to stop assigning blame and try to find out what's really going on in the shooters' heads.
