For anyone thinking of submitting a short story for the Big Finish Short Trips
thing, here's some advice from Simon Guerrier
, based on the stuff he saw when he read submissions for a previous Short Trips
anthology. (Point #11
is kind of interesting in light of "The Waters of Mars", but in general I the advice holds up well.)
Meanwhile, the blog Sociological Images offers this hilarious video on cliches in news reporting
taken from the British TV show Newswipe
is one of the reasons why I wish Americans could watch BBC TV on iPlayer. I'll have to go see if there's more of it floating around on YouTube.
