H. P. Lovecraft's Advice to Aspiring Writers, 1920 | from Brain Pickings. "A page of Addison or of Irving will teach more of style than a whole manual of rules, whilst a story of Poe's will impress upon the mind a more vivid notion of powerful and correct description and narration than will ten dry chapters of a bulky textbook." "We must remember that there are fine distinctions betwixt apparently similar words, and that language must ever be selected with intelligent care."
H P Lovecraft's The Shadow Out of Time - YouTube (This film isn't that great but it's worth seeing. Really cool animation mixed with disappointingly literal visuals and weak green-screen acting. There's a lot you can learn from something like this.)
