Emma is indisposed today so it's my turn to step into the breach.

Banes at 12:00AM, March 1, 2018

Welcome to March!

I thought I'd try a connected theme of Thursday articles this month. I've had some half-baked ideas floating around on the subject of “Point of View”. They haven't coalesced completely but I think I can figure out four articles on this topic over the ...

The Turn

Tantz_Aerine at 12:00AM, Dec. 23, 2017

There are few scenes more dramatic, more alluring and more riveting than the moment when the one of the main characters of a story makes the Turn: the moment where they change their convictions- for better or worse.

Quackcast 353 - Beautycast

ozoneocean at 12:00AM, Dec. 19, 2017


This is the Beautycast. We decided to have a chat about beauty. What IS beauty? is it universal? I would contend that it's not and that's what we tended to agree in the Quackcast. Beauty is a highly relative concept dependent on many factors like symmetry, rarity ...
