Marcel Proust, Writing In Search of Lost Time: Proust's Notebooks and Paperoles | Palimpsest
any other paper lying about would do. Envelopes, magazine covers, scarps of paper of different length and format were used: Proust called these "paperoles". Pages were torn out of notebooks and pasted elsewhere, and paperoles were often stuck together sometimes forming two-metre long scrolls. The creative process for Proust involved "writing fragments, putting them together and then separating them in order to re-assemble them in another way", writes Jean-Yves Tadie.

Facebook self-censorship: What happens to the posts you don’t publish?
the company collects information you choose to share or when you "view or otherwise interact with things.” But nothing suggests that it collects content you explicitly don’t share. Typing and deleting text in a box could be considered a type of interaction, but I suspect very few of us would expect that data to be saved. When I reached out to Facebook, a representative told me that the company believes this self-censorship is a type of interaction covered by the policy.

Shutting out a world of digital distraction - Telegraph
Every writer needs the freedom to be creative and the self-control to stick with a project until completion, but Smith has something rather more 21st century in mind: Freedom © and SelfControl© are computer applications that can be downloaded and configured to increase productivity by blocking access to the internet. ... “The internet is of no relevance at all to the business of writing fiction directly, which is about expressing certain kinds of verities that are only found through observation and introspection. It’s an incredibly powerful tool and you’d be stupid not to use it, but it’s a distraction in the actual business of writing.”

The Weird Thing About Facebook: Status Updates Are The Most Memorable Writing You Do
The use of emoticons, misspellings, and poor grammar had no impact on memorability. And since participants had no idea they were even looking at Facebook posts, Mickes says there was no way for them to think, “‘Oh, Jen would definitely write something like that,’ which could help prompt memory.” Nor were the Facebook posts funnier or more emotional than the published literature.

Virginia Heffernan - The Medium - Television - Internet Video - Media - New York Times
Our redeemer is Scrivener, the independently produced word-processing program of the aspiring novelist Keith Blount, a Londoner who taught himself code and graphic design and marketing, just to create a software that jibes with the way writers think. As its name makes plain, Scrivener takes our side; it roots for the writer and not for the final product — the stubborn Word. The happy, broad-minded, process-friendly Scrivener software encourages note-taking and outlining and restructuring and promises all the exhilaration of a productive desk: “a ring-binder, a scrapbook, a corkboard, an outliner and text editor all rolled into one.”

Occupying MLA - ProfHacker - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Was it literature? To our delight, the Twitter aftermath contained solid literary criticism about character, voice, plot, our writing of women, et cetera. After decades of campaigning for electronic literature to be viewed as literature, this thoughtful response feels like a huge victory, and the points are well taken. As the second MLA e-lit exhibit has proven, digitally born poetry and narratives are now an accepted part of literary study. We think netprov is literature — collaborative and participatory literature. We did the best we could.

Archive of Our Own » home
The Archive was entirely built and designed by volunteers from fandom. Many of our volunteers started out with no knowledge of coding / design / documentations and learned their skills on the project. We think it's a pretty amazing achievement! If you'd like to join in, please volunteer via the OTW's Volunteers page.

dickinson pinned fragments (ebr6:werner)
Freed from the forty bound fascicles, the accumulated libraries of her poetic production, and whirling confusedly around the absent center of the "book," Dickinson's (un)pinned fragments resemble the distant and disoriented migrants that do not come fully into focus and that no longer constitute a clearly delimitable constellation. [...] Fragments are "small, rickety infinitudes"; they try their chances. De-archivized, they fly to the lyric's scattered ends: the "proceedings of a birdsong," the vibration of poetry freed from the all devices.>23
