I wasn’t looking for it, but today I tripped over an old e-mail and fell into MadInkBeard, a new blog to “discuss the idea of formal constraints (mostly in writing, but also in other media) as well as offer explanations and examples of various constraints”. From there I wrestled my way out and into constrained.org, “a community site for short stories that adhere to various literary constraint”, where I was trapped for a while, eventually escaping to endless limitations.
