The moving truck that has all of our personal belongings (i.e. all of my books) is still somewhere between here and the Ozarks. So while I intended to write this week’s Fiction Friday about writing scenes—a topic I definitely struggle with—that’s not going to happen until next week.

So, again, in lieu of a post, I’ll share with you a great site and resource for writers. This blog post is a compilation of tweets by Pixar story artist Emma Coats. She shares, in 140 characters or fewer, more than 20 story writing ideas and tools. Here’s one:

Adieu for now!
