My favorite blogs to read are those that teach me something. Even if there’s something me and the blogger have in common and I think I totally know it all, I usually end up learning something new just because there’s a whole other perspective there. Here are some of the blog posts I’ve “favorited”:
- Terrible Minds (author Chuck Wendig’s blog) — How To Maximize Your Word Count And Write Every Day and 25 Humpalicious Steps For Writing Your First Sex Scene, by Delilah S. Dawson — I absolutely adore the way Chuck writes a blog post! He’s LOL funny in the rudest, crudest, most honest ways and always has something helpful to say about writing. Even if I wasn’t writing anything, I’d still read him because he’s just that good (and FUNNY!).
- NY Times — Yes, I’m Really Bisexual. Deal With It. — Wilson Diehl does a fantastic job, I think, explaining why it’s relevant — even when in an opposite-sex relationship — that someone’s sexual identity is bisexual. Given that this recently came up here when Jazz answered a couple questions, I thought you all might like even more information from another source. It is a touchy subject, Jazz can get really growly about it, and I can understand why. When we were first dating, it was a big conversation. Now? He’s bi, I’m gay, and we’re married. No biggie. But it still matters.
If you’re a slash fan, here’s something you might get a kick out of: Archive of Our Own. There’s probably a bunch of you who’re already so cool you knew about this ages ago, but I only recently found it. Since then? Ravenous devouring. I’ve got a special bookmark and updates that come through when anyone posts a story involving Supernatural slashing of Dean and Castiel. (Wing porn? Got it! Priest kink? Yeppers!)
My latest discovery, though, went sideways and upside-down when I found a Supernatural/Labyrinth slash. Yes, you read that right, Dean gets stuck in the Labyrinth courtesy of Sam (filling in for David Bowie as Jareth). So, OK, yes, it’s mostly the Winchester boys getting naughty in the Labyrinth setting, but it works for me. If you want your Jareth being naughty with the girl, Sarah (or Jareth with Toby, the baby brother all grown up!), well, they’ve got that too.
And pretty much every TV Show or Movie ever made has a slash story in there!
(You can read without an account, but getting mine only took a couple hours without an invitation. And I really recommend using the Sort & Filter options to get exactly what you want. “Kudos” is their version of “liking” something, so sort by that if you want the archive’s “best of” kind of listings first.)
