Creativity Gadgets: The Most Useful Technologies for Writers

2203

Technology is distracting – the bane of the modern writer’s existence. Yet technologies also give us a wealth of tools that great writers of the past would have killed their favorite character for.

And finally, once the story is finished, tools can help you sell stories! How can modern technology, both electronic and analog, help writers generate new ideas, stay productive, and streamline the writing process for maximum quality and productivity? Bring a notepad (or your iPad) to jot down the dozens of new gadgets, apps, and websites to try!

A Real ETO Flies By

2209

We didn’t make this up. A giant cigar-shaped Extra Terrestrial Object buzzed through the solar system last year on a hyperbolic orbit, gently tumbling, looking (to the extent we could see) very much what one might expect a big derelict spacecraft to look like. While natural explanations are preferred, it seemed eerily like something out of science fiction. Whatever its origin, it was one more piece of evidence that no planetary system is an island; whether dust, rocks, comets, rogue planets or alien visitors the exchange of stuff between stars may happens more often than some might think. Could that include life?
