Redefining the Writing Process with iPads
http://www.edutopia.org/blog/redefining-writing-process-with-ipads-beth-holland
Redefining the Writing Process with iPads
Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?
When computers entered into the equation, we digitized the process. Instead of organizing and outlining on paper, we incorporated graphic organizer tools such as Inspiration or MindMeister.
Students and teachers began to draft digitally with word processing programs, and it became possible to offer feedback by inserting comments or typing directly into the document. Not only did these augmentations add efficiency to the process, but they also allowed for completed works to be published to the web.
With Writing 2.0, the process became public.

TV Tropes
http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/HomePage
TV Tropes
This wiki is a catalog of the tricks of the trade for writing fiction.
Tropes are devices and conventions that a writer can reasonably rely on as being present in the audience members' minds and expectations. On the whole, tropes are not clichés.
The word clichéd means "stereotyped and trite." In other words, dull and uninteresting.
We are not looking for dull and uninteresting entries. We are here to recognize tropes and play with them, not to make fun of them. The wiki is called "TV Tropes" because TV is where we started. Over the course of a few years, our scope has crept out to include other media.
Tropes transcend television. They reflect life. Since a lot of art, especially the popular arts, does its best to reflect life, tropes are likely to show up everywhere.
