Post rápido.
Leyendo una entrada de Wikipedia, me encontré con las reglas para historias cortas de Kurt Vonnegut. Aquí las dejo para futura referencia:

1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.

2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.

3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.

4. Every sentence must do one of two things—reveal character or advance the action.

5. Start as close to the end as possible.

6. Be a Sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them—in order that the reader may see what they are made of.

7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.

8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To hell with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.


¡Ah, sí! Y feliz 2010…

En las épocas de WFM recuerdo que se hicieron una serie de promos utilizando utensilios de todos los días: refrigeradores, cucharas, cacerolas. No recuerdo el copy del promo pero creo recordar con que la música electrónica de la estación (en forma de mix) estaba (o podía estar) en todos lados.

Hoy me encontré este video que, aparte de estar alucinadísimo, me hizo recordar esos promos.
