Fun test for writers!

I tested this using a few thousand words from one of my side-projects, but I find it super interesting- especially, I must admit, because I’ve never actually read any Agatha Christie!? Now, of course, this means I HAVE to read something by her, haha. Any suggestions?

PROBABLY… unsplash is my new favorite website.

Go to sleep, Pinterest. You can find my unsplash.com account here if you’re interested in the types of collections I’m curating or curious to see what sort of visual inspiration I’m using for either my fine art or my writing, and having free-to-use access to photos I can credit back to the original photographer is also fantastic.

LITERALLY… the only thing I wish was different is the search function. I would prefer a “search within results” kind of deal so that when I search for apples-the-fruit I don’t get page after page of apples-the-tech. But I honestly highly recommend it for curating aesthetics, collecting reference images, or just appreciating neat photos.

(And it’s not that I’m hating on Pinterest, exactly- it’s great for recipes and crafting, but not for “i need a dozen high resolution photos of rocks that I can manipulate to my heart’s content for fun and profit” type photo-gathering.)

Oh! And NASA has an unsplash page, too, so, you know, that’s pretty great. I have no idea if NASA has a Pinterest.

Not really my favorite part of writing.

The bit where you can’t proceed mentally with the story because you realized, 150 pages in, that you forgot to put in every major instance of foreshadowing and flashbacking that would have led up to your character doing the thing he’s about to do, so you go and start editing bits into the existing manuscript.

LOL, I need to stop procrastinating and get the rest of this plot banged out, seeing as I’m going to be doing heavy edits and additions no matter what I do.
