Links: Liespotting

Link to a website for a book called Liespotting — about spotting deception in people’s facial expressions.

I came across the website because I am looking into describing facial expressions accurately in my writings.

yWriter

Free novel writing software. Has lots of neat features: create profiles for characters, timelines, create outlines, and much more. Only thing I don’t like is it does not have an auto spell check like most word processors.

Check it out here: http://www.spacejock.com/yWriter5.html
