George Saunders: what writers really do when they write | Books | The Guardian
A series of instincts, thousands of tiny adjustments, hundreds of drafts … What is the mysterious process writers go through to get an idea on to the page? 1 Many years ago, during a visit to Washington DC, my wife’s cousin pointed out to us a crypt on a hill and mentioned that, in 186

Laura Freixas: ¿Qué hacemos con Lolita?
La novela de Nabokov debe ser leída, analizada y utilizada para entender cómo el patriarcado manipula en su beneficio, y para nuestra desgracia, la cultura. Pero en ningún caso debe ser sacralizada.

In the Footsteps of Marcel Proust - William Friedkin
In the late ’80s, I returned to Paris with the sole purpose of walking in Proust’s footsteps, of seeing the places in which he lived and wrote about. Some of Proust’s world still exists, much as it did in his time, especially in Illiers-Combray, which the writer visited as a child and where he set a great deal of his novel.

Solarpunk: Against a Shitty Future - Los Angeles Review of Books
Michelle made me aware of Solarpunk, an emerging genre of utopian science fiction based on the premise that the world lives on infinite solar energy. (I'm afraid I might be short-changing the genre with this summary, but bear with me.) It sounds interesting in that it's decidedly and unabashedly utopian and celebrates diversity and inclusivity; it also sounds like it might easily turn out to be a little boring. I haven't yet read any of it, which I'll change as quickly as I can; watching a new genre emerge is always interesting. This review is an interesting way to frame it, I think. Also, I have a hunch the author is onto something with this quote that I'll end on: "We can start with what we might call the fascism of utopia. The fact that there is no abject, no excrement, in Solarpunk belies a sinister omission."

Pixar's 22 Rules of Storytelling | Aerogramme Writers' Studio
You admire a character for trying more than for their successes.
You gotta keep in mind what’s interesting to you as an audience, not what’s fun to do as a writer. They can be very different.
Trying for theme is important, but you won’t see what the story is actually about til you’re at the end of it. Now rewrite.
Once upon a time there was ___. Every day, ___. One day ___. Because of that, ___. Because of that, ___. Until finally ___.
