Get on your linking caps, because here’s a bunch of things I’ve been reading around the Internet lately, and think you should be reading too. From writing resources to books, film + TV, and even a bit of true crime. (What can I say? Sometimes my reading is eclectic.)
Got anything you think I should read? Link me in the comments below!
Where To Start in Discworld (Infographic) [Electric Literature]
I’ve been wanting to get into Discworld for years but have had no idea where to start, but now I have a plan!
Papercuts: A Party Game for the Rude and Well-Read [Electric Literature]
Apples to Apples/Cards for Humanity, but for the literary folk.
Film and TV
The Art of Editing and Suicide Squad [Folding Ideas]
A video on how editing can fail, with Suicide Squad providing examples of… everything.
Triumph of the Will and the Cinematic Language of Propaganda [Folding Ideas]
Another great video on the language of film, this time about propaganda film. Very handy in today’s media.
A Legal Analysis of The Little Mermaid That Will Ruin Your Childhood [Above The Law]

I linked to this in my Five (Major) Reasons I Love Dragon Age: Inquisition post, but I think it’s worth relinking here. A how-to guide to make a Temuera Morrison-inspired Inquisitor.
