HOWEVER: There is an honest-to-goodness neuroscientist grad student at MIT who uses serious brain Science to help writers craft amazing things. Yes, she may look 20 years old, and frankly, she could be 12 or 257 years for all I care, because she is a freaking genius.
Her blog about using brain science to help writers is seven entirely separate types of awesome, and it is a public service to writers all over the planet.
Governments should give her big fat tax subsidies. Billionaires riding around on their yachts should take a second to write her a grant or six.
If you’re a writer, a reader or at all literate in the English language, go visit her blog to get educated and enlightened. She also has a book, which you can purchase with your fake digital monies over the Series of Tubes.
