Vous écrivez? (Pas nécessairement facile ces temps-ci...) Pour vous aider à trouver l'inspiration et à bâtir de bonnes histoires, je vous propose un atelier en ligne le 12 juillet: deshistoiresquimarchent.com/at
Il reste 10 places!

You've probably already heard that on Friday May 1st Bandcamp is waiving all of its fees for the day so 100% of money from purchases goes to artists or labels. I just noticed a pretty cool addition to that: some labels are following suit and waiving their fees so 100% really goes to artists, and a bunch of musicians have special releases cued up for Friday: daily.bandcamp.com/features/ar

I hug the robot. You whisper to me through it. I run my hands through its hair while I smile at your words.
Then I let go.
It nods and leaves.
In a few hours, it will arrive at your house, disinfect itself, and call me. And I will whisper to you while it caresses you like I would.

Le célèbre Anarchopanda pour la gratuité scolaire et professeur de #philosophie partage ses cours en ligne :

« Puisqu'il faut faire des cours en ligne, j'offre le mien à la communauté. Mon 102 spécial COVID s'intitule "La philosophie face aux calamités"; nous y parlerons des cyniques, d'Épicure, des stoïciens, et de Sartre (peut-être Camus). »

Dans moins d'une heure et demie, je vous offre un microspectacle de microfictions, gratuit, en ligne, sur mon site d'auteur: ericgauthier.net/en-direct/
À bientôt!

Time you spend

On things that help

you to not "flip the fuck out"

Is never wasted

Un de mes défis pour cette année: expérimenter davantage avec de nouvelles manières de procéder -- nouvelles pour moi, du moins. D'où ce deuxième atelier en ligne que j'offre demain.
(J'offrirai aussi deux nouveaux ateliers en personne, à Sherbrooke puis Magog.)

"You are our God's Chosen One," the robed figures said.
"Er... Which god?"
The robed figures shuffled their feet and looked around.
"Our God is a minor water deity. Of the pond in the park."
"Oh. And the chosen one would?"
"Lead the Cleansing."
"Eh?"
"Of rubbish. From the pond."

It's not when you can't see home, that's still too close. It's when you can't see how to get to where you can see home. That's when you've lost home.
"There," father says, "just above those three stars in a line. You can't see it, but that's where Earth's Sun is."
I can't see it.

C'est le temps de l'année où je capitule et avoue que, oui, j'ai déjà écrit un conte de Noël: ericgauthier.net/ecrits/lectur (comme dans les meilleurs contes de Noël, on y parle de Batman aussi)

Bon, c'est parti! Les inscriptions sont ouvertes pour mon prochain atelier d'écriture, "Les défis du début", offert en ligne. Deux séances pour explorer ce qui se passe au début d'une histoire. Pour découvrir l'atelier et d'autres nouveautés:

some malaphors I think about:

-we'll burn that bridge when we get to it
-if you can't stand the bull, get out of the china shop
-where there's smoke, there's mirrors
-fool me once, shame on you; teach a man to fool me, and I'll be fooled for the rest of my life
-come back to haunt you in the ass
-lets not beat around the dead horse
-beauty is in the eye of the tiger
-burning daylight at both ends
-apples to apples, dust to dust
-a stone in the hand is worth two birds in the bush

Warren Ellis, in Orbital Operations, his newsletter (orbitaloperations.com/): "But if you ever wonder why your favourite authors "went weird" as they aged - it's because their interests and obsessions that seemed charming twenty years ago wandered off into the tall grass and mutated in the mud and filth until they became something you never needed to see."

Misinformation 

Alpha wolves are experimental wolves incorporating newly designed features. They may be expected to howl uncontrollably, explode, or randomly become lounge singers, view themselves as natural born leaders, or show other undesired behavior at any time.

Beta wolves have been tested and had the bugs worked out, and are distributed to forward-looking packs that want to gain experience with new design and behavior.

Omega wolves are the strongest and most robust of any wolf generation, having gone through QA and with the feedback of packs thoroughly considered.

Mon défi de la semaine: concevoir des cartons promo convenables en utilisant seulement des logiciels libres dans Linux. Je crois que je vais rêver en CMYK cette nuit... (Un jour j'embaucherai un vrai graphiste. Un jour.)
