Facebook publishing for local news outlets could arrive 'in the coming months'
CJR
When Facebook unveiled its new Instant Articles feature that allows news organizations to publish directly to the social media platform — and, in the process, set off an avalanche of commentary and speculation about the future of digital news — its "launch partners" were a who's who of major online publishers on both sides of the Atlantic: The New York Times, National Geographic, BuzzFeed, NBC, The Guardian, BBC News, Spiegel, Bild, and, well, the Atlantic.

Snapchat: A new mobile challenge for storytelling
The New York Times
In early 2015, The New York Times started quietly experimenting on Snapchat, a mobile app that has been getting a whole lot of attention lately (and not just from teenagers). In late 2013, Snapchat began allowing users to create "stories," a collection of videos and photos, complete with filters and the ability to add text and drawing to your creations.

5 tips on making you a tough (and better) writer
Writer's Digest
Publishing a book is an unpredictable process, but it does come with some constants. One of those are the confessions. They'll come from all over one's social network. The people making them will invariably speak of this "book" that's been "inside" them for years. Most will expect the author to deliver some formula — a key to opening literary floodgates that have unfairly been kept shut.

Create a warm, low light workspace to boost creativity
Lifehacker
It's no secret that your environment can affect your creativity. If you're sitting at your brightly lit desk in a chilly office, listening to loud music, and wondering why your next flash of genius isn't coming to you, try swapping that environment for a warm, softly lit room. Maybe even put on some moderate ambient noise.

No, not anyone can write a good book
The Daily Beast
By Patricia Park: I went into book publishing for the same reason I suspect most people are drawn to the field: I loved books and dreamed of one day writing my own. I started as an editorial intern and transitioned to publicity in academic publishing, small independent presses, and finally the big leagues: the Random House Publishing Group.

What you're missing out on when using an e-reader instead of a real book
Mic.com
An attractive stranger sits across from you on the train, hunched over and reading. As they read on, a small smirk crosses their face. What's so funny? Maybe you and this sexy stranger share a discerning literary taste, you think. Your eyes flash down to the book to see the title. Sh*t. It's a Kindle. And the chance to connect disappears.

How to please others but still be true to your work
Save the Cat!
Write for yourself. That is, perhaps, the truest and most helpful bit of advice I can give a screenwriter. If the material that you're writing is not meaningful to you, how can it possibly be meaningful to anyone else? But there are other factors, often unexpected, you might have to deal with when you get close to production. Here's how one — though frustrating at first — actually resulted in a better script.

Visit Frida Kahlo's recreated garden to see the plants that influenced her art
Smithsonian
Famed artist Frida Kahlo was also an exquisite gardener, with a deep understanding of plant science. At her home in Mexico City, known as La Casa Azul for its bright blue color and now the site of the Frida Kahlo Museum, Kahlo cultivated plants whose images made their way into her work. A sprawling exhibition at the New York Botanical Garden, Frida Kahlo: Art, Garden, Life, is "the first to examine Frida Kahlo's keen appreciation for the beauty and variety of the natural world."
