The Laws of Power

I'm not even sure how I found this website. I did, and it's a somewhat disturbing list of how to use power to . . . well, expand power.

Aside from being fascinating and at times unsettling, I thought any one of these laws could be a great tool to use to construct a villain in a novel.

Which law do you find most . . . interesting?

Air Quotes

Have you ever heard someone say something that made you want to run to your computer/mobile device/word processor/tape recorder/pen and pad and start writing? It happens to me all the time. While listening to NPR this morning, I heard a review of a new album that features all sad songs. (I apologize for not remembering the name of the artist.) What I do remember is thinking about the sad/beautiful songs that I like and how they are just waiting (like a pulsating character in a video game before you press start) for me to write stories about them.

Here is a link to quotes for writers. Let me know which ones you like. I hope one sparks a story in you!
