link love


Carrie Schneider’s Reading Women series – a stunning photo project!

I’ve been hoarding links like a crazy person lately. I used to just save text links to everything in a single Evernote, but I’ve since discovered Evernote’s web clipper and the not-so-scary joy of having lots and lots of notebooks (in fact, I think having more has made Evernote more intuitive and productive for me). Long story short, in the process of clipping links like a fiend, I lost track of just how many links – and what exactly – I’ve been saving.

But for most people I’ve met, character gender takes a back seat to story and character development, yet I keep hearing this general argument nonetheless. Becky Chambers’ essay, In Which I Am Pretty Darn Sure That Most Gamers Are Fine With Female Protagonists, pretty much sums up what I thought – I’m pretty darn sure too that most gamers are totally fine with female protagonists. Thanks, Becky.

Kayla shared the anti-preneur manifesto a while back, and I can’t love it enough.
