First of all, for those about to NaNoWriMo (and those who started at 12:01 this morning), good luck! Here's a little inspiration:
I'm in the middle of revising the first novel of the Season Avatars series and drafting the next installment of the Catalyst Chronicles series, so I'm not willing to abandon them to start a third project.
Whether or not you're participating in NaNoWriMo, you can participate in Sci-Fi Month at Rinn Reads. Please see this post for the complete schedule. I'll be posting myself on 11/20 about my favorite books/authors. There are so many to choose from that it will be hard to pick only a few!
Finally, of course, here are some science links for the week:
Warm winters let trees sleep longer
Feeling pleasure at the misfortune of those you envy is biological
New substance effectively combats multi-resistant bacteria
Moral in the morning, but dishonest in the afternoon
Scientists: we can tell how creative you are in just a few words
Even in the dark, brain "sees" its own body's movement
Incurable brain cancer gene is silenced
Natural compound good for 3D printing medical implants
Animal personalities are more like humans than first thought
New stem cells go back further
Quantum reality more whimsical than previously thought
single brain cell can perform computations
Finally, this month's issue of Scientific American has articles about worlds with two suns, why the brain prefers paper (even though I really, really love my Kindle), and a one-stop carbon solution that would store carbon underground while harvesting energy. Check it out!
Enjoy your weekend, and see you Monday with a Blog Ring of Power interview!
