New publisher authors trust: Themselves
The New York Times
When the Pulitzer Prize-winning playwright and author David Mamet released his last book, "The Secret Knowledge: On the Dismantling of American Culture," with the Sentinel publishing house in 2011, it sold well enough to make the New York Times best-seller list. This year, when Mamet set out to publish his next one, a novella and two short stories about war, he decided to take a very different path: He will self-publish.

Kobo unveils limited edition Aura HD e-reader
engadget
Late last year, Kobo went small. The introduction of the 5-inch Mini was no doubt, at least in part, an attempt to offer up a bit of variety in a space whose parameters are largely defined by two Goliaths: Amazon and Barnes & Noble. The device offered a compelling alternative, but ultimately not one enticing enough to recommend it. Announced at roughly the same time, the company's first take at front-lighting technology, the Glo, suffered a similar fate.

9 illuminating lessons on creativity
Psych Central
Creativity has a kind of ethereal, ephemeral quality. It's the muse that comes and goes as she pleases. It's the breakthrough you can't explain. It's the aha! moment you worry won't happen again. But creativity, while magical in many ways, is concrete practice. It's a garden that needs nourishing, planting and plucking. It's the muse that sits at her desk at 9 a.m. So how do we cultivate creativity? What does it really look like?

The science of paper versus screens
Scientific American
In a viral YouTube video from October 2011, a 1-year-old girl sweeps her fingers across an iPad's touchscreen, shuffling groups of icons. In the following scenes, she appears to pinch, swipe and prod the pages of paper magazines as though they, too, were screens. When nothing happens, she pushes against her leg, confirming that her finger works just fine — or so a title card would have us believe.

Taking criticism
David Farland
Recently I heard of a director who took a meeting with a writer and presented some story ideas. His opening words were, "I don't want to be challenged on this!" and he made it clear that the writer would be fired if he questioned the director's judgment on the least detail. Obviously, this director is living in La-La land. People will judge your movies and stories regardless of how insecure you may feel about it. Sometimes their judgments will be fair and accurate, but just as often they'll be biased, foolish, unfounded or downright deranged.
