Here are a few stories to read this morning.

  • Did you know that Findaway Voices (without authorization) was letting Apple use authors’ audiobooks to train its AI?
  • Nathan Bransford wants you to stop writing a particularly tortured sentence structure. (I like the sentence, but I also don’t care that it would never be said aloud.)
  • A new year is a great time to refresh your writing habits, and this post will help.
  • Here’s a fascinating post on the differences between “couldn’t have” and “mustn’t have”.
  • Did you know the Library of Congress has a new Epub Reader?
  • Do nouns have tense? (And shouldn’t that be “tenses”?)
  • If the recent launch of “The Last of Us” has sparked an interest in writing dystopian fiction, here are 30 story prompts to get you started.

P.S. Yes, I forgot to publish last week, sorry. I don’t know what happened – the text was ready, but somehow didn’t get sent.

Hi, I'm Nate.

I build and fix websites for authors, and I am also a tech VA. I can build you a website that looks great and turns visitors into fans, and I can also fix your tech when it breaks. Let me fight with tech support so you don’t have to.

My blog has everything you need to know about websites and online services. Don’t see what you need. or want personalized help? Reach out.
