I’m back in town after a long weekend in Montreal (lovely city, and in fact closer to us than Boston); in lieu of anything more substantive, have a couple of amusing links:
Life Beyond Words, a blog post by Judy Tarr about equine perception and communication. Horses are one of the things aspiring fantasy and historical writers tend to get wrong. Reading all the posts on the horses tag on this blog would go a long way to remedying the matter.
And then there’s Shady Characters, a blog about the history of punctuation marks. It’s a book now, too, and most of the more recent posts are concerned with that, but you can dive into the archives for discussions of pilcrows and interrobangs and octothorpes.
