What I have been staring at this week

This week we have a mix of writing tools, tv shows and sneezing pandas in the link list. As always if you have something you think I should be staring at next week leave me a link in the comments below.

Here is a tool I use whenever I am stuck on a writing project and need a kick in the head to get me started. It gives you a character in a situation and a second character with a job and an action the rest is up to you.

I have mentioned before that I love the TV show the Prisoner now the good folks at amc have all the episodes available to watch online. If you aren't familiar with the show go give it a try, it is an interesting look at what it means to be an individual and an adversary of conformity.

Mental floss had some interesting items this week as well. The story of Red Adir firefighter to the world was quite interesting. The time lapse graffiti art project was stunning to see and rather metaphysical to think about at least for me.

Here is something that always helps me when I am feeling down. The sneezing panda video. I probably should have listed it as item number 5 in my list of techniques for not dwelling but here it is now.

And lastly here is an interesting little problem solving game I have been playing. What sets The Company of Myself apart from a lot of games is the story and is worth playing through to the end on that basses alone. The game play is fun and at times challenging, enjoy.

I hope you have a great weekend and if you think there is anything i should be staring at next week let me know in the comments.
