Change Arc: The Inner Journey

Simply put, a change arc is the inner journey a character experiences from the beginning of the story to the end. It’s their transformation, or their lesson learned. It’s how far they’ve really come regardless the distance of their physical journey. And it’s super easy to mess up. So, here’s a cheat sheet to use when you need to either rein in a runaway change arc, or kick an underwhelming change arc into high gear. Fantasy Character Arcs In fantasy, we mainly see two types of stories—those i...

Facebook is hiring 'news credibility specialists' — after saying it didn't want to be in the business of judging news trustworthiness (FB)

Facebook is looking to hire a pair of contractors as "news credibility specialists," Business Insider has learned. The company plans to have the specialists create a list of credible news organizations that it could make use of for various features on its site. For example, the list could be used to weed out articles about politics that are promoted on Facebook from more traditional political ads. On their face, the job listings appear to be at odds with company CEO Mark Zuckerberg's statement...

This Week in Photography Books: Victoria Will

  This is a true story. Back in 2013, almost five years ago, I began writing for the New York Times. Though I’d been blogging for four years by then, it still seemed like a major leap. I remember thinking that people were whispering, can he write in a serious way? Isn’t he just the guy who obsessively talks about himself, and says fuck a lot, and makes jokes? (Obviously, five-years-ago-me thought people actually talked about him. 44-year-old-me knows people are too busy just-getting-by to wonder...

‘The Walking Dead’ and the Case Against Killing Off Television Characters

(This post contains immediate and major spoilers for The Walking Dead.) Carl Grimes is dead. In all the seasons of The Walking Dead so far, I don’t think anyone would have guessed that one of the zombie apocalypse’s casualties would be Carl, one of the show’s original and longest-running characters. For many fans, a show without Carl is like a show without his dad,  Rick – it just wouldn’t be The Walking Dead. It would be a completely different show that didn’t sign up for. You would think the ...

EXCHANGE: Losing a limb has not handicapped Pekin bowler

PEKIN, Ill. (AP) — While it might not be politically correct, a popular joke in Pekin is that Larry Weiland is the best one-legged bowler in town. Truth is, he might be the best one-legged bowler anywhere. Weiland bowls with a prosthetic limb on his right leg, starting just below the knee. It’s the result […]

Kitchen of the Week: A Modern Farmhouse Kitchen in SF (Before and After)

For three years, tech execs Brian Jackson and Thomas Ranese devoted their weekends to real estate hunting. The couple were looking for a house close to Google’s downtown San Francisco office, where they both work, that would serve as “a bit of peace in the middle of the city” and a place to cook and entertain together. What they eventually found was a well-situated 1871 Victorian that over the decades had had the charm renovated out of it. SF architect Malcolm Davis, a longstanding member of the...

Evolution of Circle Track Technology

35 Years of CT Ads: Documentation of Evolution of Technology When the first issue of Circle Track came on the scene, short track racing was in a major transition. Racing as an industry that we now know was being formed then and had only been around for several years. Prior to that time, most race cars of the 1960’s and up to the mid-1970’s were home built with parts scavenged from the junk yard. Soon after that, some enterprising individuals began what we commonly know as members of the Perform...

Your Favorite Shoe Brands Got Fashion-ified For Spring '17

Something strange is afoot, literally, across the pond.

30 Of The Most Random Music Video Couples You've Ever Seen

One of the perks of being a rock star is having the power to cast just about anyone you want in your music video. Sometimes, the results are so right. We'll never believe that Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler aren't truly best friends/maybe girlfriends, that Lady Gaga and Alexander Skarsgård don't make a hot fake couple, or that Stephen Dorff isn't the worst boyfriend a pop star could ever have. Sometimes, the results are a little head-scratching. Never mind Paula Abdul coupling up with a cartoo...

Traditional Time Management for Writers? Why It Doesn’t Work (And What To Do Instead)

Did you resolve, on January 1st, to “get more writing done” this year? Have you ever bought a book on time management, or read a bunch of blog posts on productivity, and tried really hard to make someone’s clever system work for you? How did it go?

Shame on You, Grammys: No Tribute for Scott Weiland, Maurice White, Natalie Cole. Fans Outraged!

Scott Weiland fans watched with bated breath, hoping the 58th Grammys would show some appreciation for the late rock star, singer/songwriter, and frontman of two of rock and roll's most successful bands of the '90s and turn of the century: Stone Temple Pilots and Velvet Revolver. Knowing that VR members would be taking stage in tribute of other fallen rock legends, we were hoping for, if nothing else, a sign from the musicians themselves -- if not from the corporation. Not a peep. A momentary ...
