Personality Insights from Your Writing

needs1

This was such an interesting test. I don’t agree (or like) everything it had to say about me from my writing. But, the sample I chose was about art, so that may have biased the results. I’m going to try it with a couple of other articles I’ve written. Maybe some from years ago even just to see what kind of results I get overall. You are unpretentious, boisterous and explosive. You are empathetic: you feel what others feel and are compassionate towards them. You are unconcerned with art: you are less concerned with artistic or creative activities than most … Continue…

Obsolete and Forgotten – Technology Changes Lifestyle

So much technology is becoming obsolete right now. Our current time mirrors the Industrial Age for changes to mechanics, industry and our daily lifestyle. I wonder how much we take for granted from the lifestyle of people before the Industrial Age. We imagine them like ourselves. But, think of the simple changes in our own life from cell phones. Wrist watches, pay phones, cameras and other gadgets and tools we relied on are now seldom used and, in the case of pay phones, rarely seen. This changes how we live, how we communicate too. How different, therefore, would it have … Continue…

Describing Sounds to the Deaf

How would you describe a sound to someone born deaf? Think about explaining how your alarm clock sounds. How does a cat’s meow sound? What sound does your keyboard make when you type? Simple things to people who have heard sounds before. What can you hear right now? What little sounds are going on around you, unnoticed? Pick one sound in particular.

Write Dieselpunk

Dieselpunk is an alternate history/reality science fiction sub genre that takes much of it’s flavor and attitude from cyberpunk. It is usually set between 1915-1950 and like it’s cousin steampunk it is retro-futurism. Even though it is compared to and pigeon-holed with steampunk it actually has more in common with cyberpunk. Think of it as cyberpunk as seen through a pulp, art deco, filter. If you like all things early 20th century vintage and retro-future you’ll love Dieselpunk. Source: Dieselpunk from Facebook
