Saturday Shmaturday Links: Week Ending 2-2-13

It’s amazing what you’ll find when you’re supposed to be working on other things!  🙂

Caution Saturday Shmaturday

I ran into a bumper crop of of interesting links this week; so rather than sharing them in drips and drabs, I gathered them up together for your reading perusal.

So this might seem obvious to some of you, put I didn’t have a clue how to do this until I read her post.  Thank you!!!  Her site is full of awesomeness.

  • Encyclopedia Mythica  “The award-winning internet encyclopedia of mythology, folklore, and religion.”

Not sure how I haven’t stumbled upon this before, but it’s a really cool site!  I spent a good chunk of my Monday morning lost in folklore.

An excellent site if you’re researching the Victorian Period, lots of images. 

I finished reading her book, “Spellbinder,”  Sunday night.  Really interesting read if you’re in the mood for a mystery/ghost story.  It’s a YA novel, but not something that’s strictly for kids.  Regardless, you need to check out her website.  Holy cats! It’s one of the best I’ve seen.  Make sure you “click” on the red door.  Her website is really well put together.

If you feel like hopping and you’d like to join in, Author Joleene Naylor has the information available on her site.

This looked REALLY interesting, lots of information and resources all compiled together in one place.

A hard look at the images you see of celebrities in Ads and in Magazines.  I really like the before and after shots.  YES.  Real women DO have curves, even famous ones.

LMAO!!!  I haven’t giggled this hard in a while!  This is a laughing until you’re crying sort of post.  Afterwords, be sure to read the follow up post, TerribleMinds: Yes, Virgina, You Can Be A Paid Writer, Too.

A candid look at writing as a career.  There’s also a really cool character generator on DuoLit’s site.  I especially like the Mystery/Thriller Character Generator.  

Have a great day !

PS  If you’re spamming me links to nude pics of Lady Gaga…yeah…I don’t really need those.  In fact, I’m going to go out on a limb on this one, I don’t think anyone really needs or wants links spammed to them of naked celebrities, or anyone else.  I mean, I get it.  You’re trying throw a nice virus onto everyone’s computer, who knows why, and that seemed like a great way to get people to pop on over.  But I’m not a Lady Gaga fan.  Never have been.  I’m more of a Cake, The Shins, Beck kind of gal.

So here’s a YouTube bonus link!  Cake: “Short Skirt Long Jacket.”  I LOVE this song.  It’s IMPOSSIBLE to be sad while listening to this song!!!!
