Are you a writer looking for inspiration? Or maybe you just enjoy television, movies, and books in general. Either way, this website is for you.

For a moment there, I became addicted to this site again...

Anyway… not to be confused with a cliché, a trope is a common device a writer uses in their work to reflect life. Tropes are often explained by saying “you know, that thing where…”
Let’s say you’re watching a show, and all of a sudden, really weird stuff starts happening, like little people juggling while riding a tricycle around a bewildered protagonist. Then the protagonist realizes, just as you do, that this has all been a dream, a really bad hallucination, or some other escape from reality. If you know what I’m talking about, then congratulations! You know what a trope is. If not, don’t fret! Peruse the site yourself, and you’ll understand soon enough.

Gyazo/Lightshot

Hey, you know that button above the backspace key? Yes? No?

Yeah, that one.

Your answer may depend on how often you look at your keyboard.

Anyway, I’m not going to teach you how to use that button. Why? Because this website is for fun, and tutorials aren’t fun. Instead, I’m going to show you some fun and easy ways to share pictures with your friends using one of 2 very small programs called Gyazo and LightShot.
Now, for those of you that are simple, impatient, or in a hurry, Gyazo is a fairly quick program to use. As shown on the website, you just use your mouse to trace a box around whatever you’d like to show that friend of yours, then — BAM. An image is created, and a link to it is automatically copied to your clipboard. I’d suggest pinning it to your taskbar for easy access.
Second on the list is LightShot, which is pretty similar to Gyazo, but with the option to upload, edit, and search for similar images. Either way, the choice is yours.
