Bueno, pues por fin he terminado el capítulo 17 de la reescritura de #ElUltimoSacrificio que de verdad, me tenía ya frita. Pero creo que ha quedado bastante mejor. Además sigo añadiendo matices a un personaje en cuestión que le están aportando una profundidad que en su momento no supe darle y me encanta
and things I cannot accept
like your kind of love.
peeled like an onion
tender skin and stinging tears
A predator's touch!

When we write using pen and paper, we plan texts more carefully, remember the things we've noted down more accurately, and put less strain on our brains, compared to using a typewriter or computer. @TheConversationUS takes a look at some of the studies around this, and makes the case for continuing to teach handwriting in schools.
Pues creo que voy a ir parando por hoy la sesión de reescritura de #ElÚltimoSacrificio, tengo la cabeza ya que me va a explotar.
Voy por el capítulo 16 de 21, así que no voy mal (tampoco es que tenga que acabarlo en un límite de tiempo, más allá de "lo antes posible 😂 ), pero sí que quiero darme vidilla porque son CUATRO novelas

Caught between a rock, called Israel,
and a hard place, that is Hamas.
Hey there Mastodonians.
Last week I lost my #job for the 3rd time in 2023: once to a bankruptcy, once to a toxic CEO, and last week due to an re-org by a parent company that eliminated my position.
Edit: USA northeast/remote work please!

Reasons to get a self-taught college degree education / Infographic by College Cliffs
The cost of college tuition has been rising steadily for years, making it difficult for many people to afford a traditional college education.
Meet autodidacticism. It’s a self-education – an education without the guidance of masters or institutions.
Autodidacts are often highly motivated and self-directed learners. They can also learn at their own pace and in their own way. Additionally, autodidacts typically have an in-depth understanding of the material they have learned because they have had to work hard to master it.
There are now many free online resources that can help you learn new skills and earn a college-level education without having to pay any tuition.
The infographic from College Cliffs gives a handy overview of how to give yourself a college education online for free. It provides different free online resources available, as well as some tips for staying motivated and on track.
Here are the most obvious benefits of earning a college-level education online for free:
▸ Cost-effective – there is no tuition to pay, so you can save a significant amount of money.
▸ Flexible – you can study at your own pace and in your own time.
▸ Accessible – you can access the courses from anywhere in the world.
▸ Relevant – the courses are often taught by experts in their field, and they are designed to be relevant to the latest industry trends.

An infographic by RJ Andrews from InfoWeTrust analyzes daily activities of 16 creative minds, including authors / Source: The Visual Capitalist
Have you developed a daily routine that helps you stay focused and productive? Does the routine help unlock creativity at all?
Some people find that having a regular, repeatable workday is incredibly important, while others find that it stifles their creativity.
From RJ Andrews comes an interesting chart that compares daily routines of the world’s most creative minds, Charles Dickens, Le Corbusier, Beethoven, and Thomas Mann among them.
The visual denotes certain categories for daily activities like working creatively, sleeping, leisure, exercise, or social time. One thing to keep in mind is that the clocks are 24-hour, not 12, so what’s at the bottom is a midday.
▸ The average amount of time spent on creative work for the word’s top creative minds was just over 8 hours a day.
▸ Honoré de Balzac usually spent 13.5 hours a day on creative work, while Victor Hugo only 2 hours.
▸ Maya Angelou daily routine was similar to a modern workday. She was usually writing between 7 AM and 2 PM.
▸ Balzac wrote from 1:00 AM to 4:00 PM, with only an hour and a half nap break in between. He needed 50 cups of coffee to stay focused.

¿Qué puedo decir sobre Alejandra Pizarnik que no se haya dicho ya? Muy poco
No soy un biógrafo. No he venido a hablar de historia
Este poema va sobre lo que Alejandra representa, para mi.
No existen las palabras suficientes para describir todo lo que ya significado su poesía para mi, pero hay que hacer intentos.
When Marnie was there para mí representa un lugar seguro a donde volver. Es de esas películas que podría ver mil veces sin cansarme y sinceramente, es mi favorita de Ghibli sin lugar a dudas
No fue la más exitosa del estudio y seguramente no es la favorita de todos pero para mí, fue una experiencia mágica. Así que, hace un tiempo atrás escribí un poema, podría tomarse como un tributo a Marnie y todo lo que representa. Espero que a alguien le interese leerlo
I left it unfinished for far too long and I forgot what else I was supposed to do with the illustration, but I hope you enjoy it nonetheless.
I can't wait to draw more spirit animals, I love how the bear turned out!
good deeds are like seeds
kind words like sun and water
Our lives the garden...

I'll upload new pages as replies to this thread to keep it organized.
TSQ follows a story of an unknown priestess who tries to make a pact with one of powerful sky spirit animals only to find out why nobody deals with the Dusk Serpent.
Normalmente escribo un poema a la semana, o a veces uno al inicio y otro al fin, pero bueno, aquí hay otro. Es corto y es directo, capaz no es un poema en todo el sentido de la palabra. He aquí, mis razones para escribir:
Controversial Opinion: I don't use Hero's Journey.
I did in my first book but quickly decided it was far too restrictive and not actually that useful.
The fact it has infected almost all storytelling is quite troubling, IMO.
Turns out Campbell's monomyth idea is not even close to be being correct.
From the linked article:
"academic folklorists and scholars of ancient literature almost universally reject Campbell’s theories as nonsense"
I must acquiesce
Summer is almost over
I will miss flowers...
