Weekly Links #109: Skip Week

It had to happen sooner or later. For the first time since I'm keeping this newsletter, not a single tweet or blog post caught my attention enough to be worth sharing here. So this has to be a skip week. I blame myself. Maybe don't unsubscribe just yet though. Please?

I will, however, leave you with a thought if I may: It occurs to me that game genres are the equivalent of literary forms, and there's nothing wrong with liking sonnets over flash fiction. And when you decide what to write next, you don't just choose a theme, but also how best to express it. Will it be an epistolary novel? An epic poem?

There's nothing wrong with choosing a time-tested form. Just do it with purpose.
