Pacemakers

Via @cyclingtips… “On the second ascent of the Arthurs Seat climb Froome emerged from the bunch at the top once again, in search of more KOM points, and it was the former New Zealand national road champion Joe Cooper that followed. Cooper attacked over the top and Froome responded, the pair opening up a gap of 30 seconds.

With overall leader Peter Kennaugh in the bunch behind, Froome wasn’t inclined to help Cooper with the pacemaking. He sat on the Kiwi’s wheel for the entirety of the final lap before punching away at the base of the Arthurs Seat climb with less than 3km to race.” #BTMFD #SunTour

Εngineer invents safe way to transfer energy to medical chips in the body

A Stanford electrical engineer has invented a way to wirelessly transfer power deep inside the body, and then use this power to run tiny electronic medical gadgets such as pacemakers, nerve stimulators or new sensors and devices yet to be developed.

The discoveries reported May 19 in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences culminate years of efforts by Ada Poon, assistant professor of electrical engineering, to eliminate the bulky batteries and clumsy recharging systems that prevent medical devices from being more widely used.

The technology could provide a path toward a new type of medicine that allows physicians to treat diseases with electronics rather than drugs.

“We need to make these devices as small as possible to more easily implant them deep in the body and create new ways to treat illness and alleviate pain,” said Poon.

Poon’s team built an electronic device smaller than a grain of rice that acts as a pacemaker. It can be powered or recharged wirelessly by holding a power source about the size of a credit card above the device, outside the body.

I want to thanks Lee Pace's fans

Because this is the only fandom where there is no hate, some silly people annoyed me with the Lee/Richard story but they just don’t know where to stop.

I’ve been into many fandoms and to me it’s like differents world, and this world is the only one where I received so much love and no hate

Maybe because Lee himself is full of love and when you see this face you can only be nice to everyone

Thank you Pacemakers, I love you all

Chapter: 1/1

Pairing: Lee Pace/OFC

Warnings: NSFW, PWP

Disclaimer: I don’t own Lee Pace. I don’t know him personally, nor have I met him. This story is for entertainment purposes only.


This story is a THANK YOU to my wonderful followers and Pacemakers. You guys continue to inspire and make me laugh every day and I’m proud to be part of such a kick-ass fandom.

Story is based on the following prompt from nolikereally 

Lee is a good guy, a sweetheart who would never hurt anybody, all gentle slouching shoulders trying not to impose and apologetic brow. When he was a child of twelve, he kissed a girl by the swingset at Spring Creek Park, and he bit her lip until she cried; he can still remember the taste of her blood. But he is good— he is good, he is a tender lover, he is a wolf smothered in lambskin and kissing through his teeth.

He does not know it yet when their eyes meet, because her face is sweet and she only smiles; but some girls want bruises, and kisses will not do.

This is some stuff I’ve gathered over the years from various masterposts and poking around on the internet that help me with my creative writing. I hope you find something to help you, these have really gotten me far! (Note: Everything is free!)

Organization

Plotist

  • I can not stress how amazing this website is. You can keep track of your characters, events, plot lines, and settings. It’s great if your story has a lot of different characters and places you need to keep track of. You can create timelines in which you place in your characters and have a visual representation of where they are and the events happening while they’re there. There’s a lot of information about it on the site if you want specificities.

Pacemaker

  • This lets you set a goal for how many words/chapters/lines/etc. you want to write in whatever frame of time you choose. There are many options for how you can divide your time, and what your quota is for each day. It also gives you visual representations of your goals and progress. This is super helpful is you’re a procrastinator like me.

Names

Magic Baby Names

  • This site is awesome. You enter in a name, and it gives you a list of names similar to it. This is great for when you want a specific type of name (ex. specific to a time period, specific to a race) or when you have a certain feel for a name you want, but don’t have an actual name in mind.

List of Girls Names

  • Has a bunch of names for girls, both common and unique.

List of Boys Names

  • Has a bunch of names for boys, both common and unique.

Most Popular Surnames in the US

  • Having a practically unheard of surname can sounds awkward, unless it has some sort of relevance to your story. Keep it mainstream and believable by picking from this list. If you scroll to the bottom there are also options for popular surnames in America by race, which can be quite helpful.

Last Name Generator

  • If you’re not one to sit and scroll through lists, then try out a surname generator. You can also enter a first name and see how the name and the generated surname look next to each other. This can also generate a lot of other types of names, like for locations or boats or teams or first names or whatever.

Angel Name Generator

  • This generates believable sounding angel names.

Fantasy Name Generator

  • This site has a lot of different options for mythological creatures, and you can also choose what length you’d like.

Inspiration

Pinterest

  • Having some visuals can be quite helpful if you need inspiration. Just play around with search terms and you’ll find some cool, inspiring stuff. You can also create an account and pin pictures that inspire you to look at later. If you want, you can have different collections of pictures if you want to organize your pinned pictures with different labels. As an example, here’s mine (which you could also use for inspiration).

Tumblr Blogs ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 )

  • (Warning: Some of the links are nsfw and/or potentially triggering) These are a couple of blogs that have some cool pictures that are good for inspiration. Also, I recommend creating a blog that you use to reblog things that inspire you for whatever your writing. I have one for a novel I’m writing and looking at it always gets me inspired.

Music

Noisli

  • I love this site. You can turn on sounds like river, fire, storm, railroad and others. You can combine them to create different environment sounds, and choose the individual volume of each one. Another thing this site does, is it has a space for writing. It’s very simple, just an empty space, but the background slowly changes color as you write. It’s not distracting like it sounds, it’s actually very relaxing, and the change is nice so you’re not staring at the same-looking screen for hours.

myNoise

  • This site is good if you want to hear the background noise to your story. It has themed generators for specific sounds like a battlefield or a spaceship, but also other types of sounds. It’s great for getting into the mood or the scene.

Night City Sounds

This is great if your story is set in the city, or even a town. It sounds extremely real and is very relaxing.

Star Trek Bridge Ambience

  • You don’t have to be a Star Trek fan to find this useful. It’s really good for any type of future-y setting, especially a spaceship or work setting.

8tracks ( 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14 15 )

  • 8tracks is my go-to site for writing music. You can search by mood, genre, fandom/character (good for fanfics), or anything else that comes to mind. There are also tags like “writing inspiration” and “character inspiration” that have great stuff. You search multiple tags at once, to get the exact feel you want. You can also make collections of playlists, which is helpful to organize by things like “fight scenes” or “insane characters.” I’ve linked playlists that are great for writing inspiration above, each with a different theme. Also, here’s a helpful masterpost that has a collection of 8tracks playlists for writing that are categorized by scene type.

Video Game Music

  • Video game music is designed to get you hyped and concentrated, which is great for writing! It’s also quite fun to listen to, so if you’re looking to write an exciting but light-hearted scene, this is good to get you in the mood.

Future/sci-fi music

  • This is actually just a link to one of Daft Punk’s ablums. It was the soundtrack to Tron: Legacy, so it’s super intense and future-y sounding. You can listen to the album anywhere, really. They also have songs that aren’t on that album that are good for future writing.

Information

Other Masterposts ( 1 2 3 4 )

  • These are some masterposts I use a bunch that have lots of great writing resources. They’re mostly resources for writing characters, but the first one touches on a couple different topics.

List of Character Flaws

  • If you feel like you’re character is a little too perfect, here’s a bunch of flaws you can give them. However, know that this list was originally created for RPG characters, and anything that would give the character a disadvantage would be considered a “flaw,” so that’s why a few of the suggestions are a little odd. It’s a great list otherwise, and extremely helpful.

Color Symbolism

  • This is a site that explains what all the colors stand for and mean, and what they’re associated with. Throwing color symbolism in your story can be really cool and an easy thing to do to make your story a little deeper.

Survive Nature

  • Realistically depict your character being stranded or going on an adventure in a challenging terrain. There are guides for being stuck on a island, in the jungle, in the forest, in the ocean/open water, in the desert, and in the snow/extreme cold.
