Check out this periodic table of storytelling.  Mix and match your favorite movie, or use it to help plot your next story.

Wonder why old books have such a distinctive odor?  I’m an unabashed book-sniffer, and I love the smell of used bookstores.  Compound Interest breaks down the chemical processes at work.

Mental Floss has a great piece about authors who made cameos in films based on their work.  A glaring omission is Charles Beaumont in Roger Corman’s The Intruder.  Chuck wrote the novel (his only) and the screenplay, plus he played a crucial role in the film.  Turns out not only could he write, he had acting chops as well.
