The Shapes of Stories by Kurt Vonnegut via Kami Garcia

I spent my last months at Know Your Meme dumping viewcount and pageview data into Gephi, convinced that there were repeatable shapes to “meme” spread (there were and there are, I just ran out of time before I could get a bunch of brains together to figure out what any of it meant.)

And recently, I’ve been thinking quite a bit about Matt Locke’s Audience Shapes — the idea that there are distinguishable ‘shapes’ to tv viewing behavior.

So it’s reaffirming to see that someone like Vonnegut was thinking the same way, sensing patterns where they couldn’t be seen. I am not alone in my madness.

Adam Santo is a SciFi/Fantasy writer who enjoys the quiet moments to sit idly writing stories. His debut novel, Temperature: Dead and Rising, took the world for a ride they would soon not forget. Santo began plotting the second novel, Temperature: Bitter Cold, before the ink dried on his first book. Santo continues to write nonstop because he knows there is always a story waiting to get out. When he is not writing, Santo enjoys quality time with his family and friends, spending the occasional weekend at a movie theater, and reclaiming his youth when his son challenges him to a video game. Santo currently resides in sunny Florida with his beautiful wife and equally beautiful children.
