Linguistics, Style and Writing in the 21st Century - with Steven Pinker
 
53:41
Does writing well matter in an age of instant communication? Drawing on the latest research in linguistics and cognitive science, Steven Pinker replaces the recycled dogma of style guides with reason and evidence. Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe Watch the Q&A here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7rYAnYXIhL0 In this brand-new talk, introduced by Lord Melvyn Bragg, Steven argues that style still matters: in communicating effectively, in enhancing the spread of ideas, in earning a reader’s trust and, not least, in adding beauty to the world. Steven Pinker is an experimental psychologist and one of the world’s foremost writers on language, mind, and human nature. He is Professor in the Department of Psychology at Harvard University and conducts research on language and cognition but also writes for publications such as the New York Times, Time, and is the author of many books, including The Language Instinct and How the Mind Works. Melvyn Bragg is a broadcaster, writer and novelist. He was made a Life Peer (Lord Bragg of Wigton) in 1998. Since then he has hosted over 660 episodes of In Our Time on subjects ranging from Quantum Gravity to Truth. He was presenter of the BBC radio series The Routes of English, a history of the English language. He is currently Chancellor of the University of Leeds Subscribe for regular science videos: http://bit.ly/RiSubscRibe The Ri is on Twitter: http://twitter.com/ri_science and Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/royalinstitution and Tumblr: http://ri-science.tumblr.com/ Our editorial policy: http://www.rigb.org/home/editorial-policy Subscribe for the latest science videos: http://bit.ly/RiNewsletter

Proselint: The Linting of Science Prose, and the Science of Prose Linting | SciPy 2016 | Michael Pac
 
23:32
Writing is notoriously hard, even for the best writers, and it's not for lack of good advice — a tremendous amount of knowledge is strewn across usage guides, dictionaries, technical manuals, essays, pamphlets, websites, and the hearts and minds of great authors and editors. But this knowledge is trapped, waiting to be extracted and transformed. We built Proselint, a Python-based linter for prose. Proselint identifies violations of expert style and usage guidelines. Proselint is open-source software released under the BSD license and works with Python 2 and 3. It runs as a command-line utility or editor plugin (e.g., Sublime Text, Atom, Vim, Emacs) and outputs advice in standard formats (e.g., JSON). Though in its infancy – perhaps 2% of what it could be – Proselint already includes modules addressing: redundancy, jargon, illogic, clichés, sexism, misspelling, inconsistency, misuse of symbols, malapropisms, oxymorons, security gaffes, hedging, apologizing, pretension. Proselint can be seen as both a language tool for scientists and a tool for language science. On the one hand, it includes modules that promote clear and consistent prose in science writing. On the other, it measures language usage and explores the factors relevant to creating a useful linter.

Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing
 
01:15:52
The Harvard Initiative for Learning and Teaching (HILT), in collaboration with the Harvard Writers at Work Lecture Series, welcomed Professor Steven Pinker and Visiting Professor Jill Abramson on December 9th, 2014 in a talk at Harvard titled, "Mastering Style: The Learning and Teaching of Writing." The discussion, inspired by the recent publication of Professor Pinker’s book, The Sense of Style: The Thinking Person’s Guide to Writing in the 21st Century, was focused on the teaching and learning of writing, associated challenges, and practical recommendations. The starting point of effective writing, Pinker shared, is for the author to determine a mental model of the communication scenario between the writer and the reader. Pinker shared the “classic style” theory of interpreting writer/reader communication from literary scholars Francis-Noel Thomas and Mark Turner. Classic style aims to help the reader see objective reality, which can be accomplished by focusing on the thing being shown and not on the activity of studying it, as well as by avoiding clichés and “metaconcepts” (concepts about concepts), among other recommendations. Academic writing, in contrast, is frequently written in postmodern or self-conscious style, one that includes apologizing and hedging.

Hemingway's Writing Style and Voice: The 10-Point Discussion
 
08:51
Heay! Josh here, welcome to the WriteRightRite (: All literary critics understand that Hemingway as a minimalist writer, and that his style — his voice was one of the most unique writing styles of the time, and still is. But our question is, how can I write like him? How do I find the voice and style of the minimalist writer, like Hemingway? This list of 10 ways Hemingway wrote like a minimalist should point us in the right direction. 1. The "Hard Boiled" Style Hemingway wrote in a masculine, scientific, and at times rigid and abrupt way... 2. Be Efficient Hemingway despised superfluous literature... 3. Write the Truth "All you have to do is write one true sentence. Write the truest sentence that you know." 4. Find Solitude "Although far from a recluse, Hemingway always wrote in solitude or near solitude when conditions didn't allow. In A Moveable Feast he recalls the cold of his room, warmed by sticks in the winter: "It was either six or eight flights up to the top floor and it was very cold and I knew how much it cost for a bundle of small twigs, to make a fire that would warm the room." 5. Write Standing up In 1958 a reporter named George Plimpton interviewed Hemingway. He writes: "A working habit he has had from the beginning, Hemingway stands when he writes. He stands in a pair of his oversized loafers on the worn skin of a lesser kudu -- the typewriter and the reading board chest-high opposite him." 6. Find a Secret Writing Place This is not just a place of solitude, but a different place than your normal haunts. 7. Write With Pencil and Paper It's not everyone's forte, especially in the modern world of laptops and wi-fi. But this was Ernest Hemingway's way. 8. Short Sentences Are Successful Hemingway was once challenged to write a story using only 6 words. He wrote: "For sale: baby shoes, never used." 9. Use Language Aggressively That doesn't mean cuss every other word, although at times Hemingway did that too. The more energetically forceful words are, the less need there is for more of them. Consider these 10. Keep the Good, Trash the Bad In 1934, Hemingway told F. Scott Fitzgerald: "I write one page of masterpiece to ninety-one pages of sh**. I try to put the sh** in the wastebasket." -Josh Photos by: Thanks for the great photos! - Marie-Lan Nguyen http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Boiled_egg#mediaviewer/File:Egg_spiral_egg_cup.jpg Janet Ramsden https://www.flickr.com/photos/ramsd/11075130845/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Improvana http://improvana.tumblr.com/ Geraint Rowland https://www.flickr.com/photos/geezaweezer/13519812124/in/photolist-7anDgu-aAvh9L-jvULdT-9YdeZ4-iae6-jVhfXr-4jRfvE-54yxHY-5osiWk-mAGz83-6Ewshz-hSEWxP-da4Pmd-kx2b3k-5U3ihF-6nzWoW-nazkHt-7F8ukc-jmNcZi-iKqkQc-bo1UfR-fMfTmm-doH1wo-nmpsYt-6y65Ha-6y5UsB-7hFHDj-cKczVA-9SBogZ-fKhf8J-dXXEdW-d1pogh-fK1FYo-4NFgXf-7EVvgf-6MWhZA-mjqpwg-a55puw-B78H8-6tERqT-RC5ZR-tRTwU-5DeHyu-9GJP3P-61sd5t-jGvqiG-6RFNzH-6pkj4W-2Vb39b-sCTj Tobias Vemmenby https://www.flickr.com/photos/toobydoo/11350433966/in/photolist-hyH1UN-cResdL-6fWNYP-9aXQzK-6YEhtv-fhCMtq-jUqYE-4uLWG6-4MfCNH-7SyD2r-cUv4i3-6YJjjy-4f2GNe-btBcgy-cXfuvm-8uAuod-ihZWzm-84G99h-8gVDyg-jg1yUu-9EwYzB Laura Ritchie https://www.flickr.com/photos/lauraritchie/7874958188/in/photolist-cZTdHb-b3JagT-5b7m8i-7GHQjM-6iriP7-74kT37-iTBuer-aafHex-fUw3tp-b18J7g-8FDhnK-atwsgk-73EYvL-dVr5uX-963van-9vNiDT-9vZQbU-6CAqjw-6tbFKY-8kCy1P-6KDN3R-aNgqzX-7fw487-ax9Wxo-6FdyvF-8rEo7Q-ar28sq-ba2bue-b18FWx-6KDvJR-74gcCn-b18JHa-aubwL4-azLAn1-6w5iMm-jeNbbb-bifZjM-mmjP9P-8Z25y7-aiuSwC-613NTr-eetGE3-81uiaD-6zMFTc-6tbFU3-9WhLYe-6NjxHx-iAn97x-9TfHCw-8KffUP

How to write using Classic Style
 
20:45
Based on the first half of The Sense of Style by Steven Pinker. Here is the summary frame at 19:50: Start and finish strong. You have something important to say and you want to share that with the reader in conversation. Use the mind’s eye with concrete images. Insert a surprising word or two, and use words that sound as they mean. Start by jotting ideas down on cards and look for the links. Remember the rules: Light before heavy; Topic, then comment; Given then new. Take the reader on a journey, arrange ideas in a logical sequence, or tell a story with a narrative arc. Do not use: Meta-discourse, meta-concepts, very, hedge, clichés, passive voice, zombie nouns, It or There…, that, which, who, mixed-metaphors, jargon, latin. Open with a question, in other words, qualify, self-contained summary, pronouns, split sentences, therefore, moreover, however, for example, as in, such as, chunk. Use ordering schemes to connect your ideas. Are you showing resemblance, contiguity, cause and effect? Is there plausible negation and a sense of proportion. Are you consistent? Share your work. Return to it yourself. Read the passage aloud. Omit needless words. Paragraph breaks, taglines, pull quotes, and examples.

This lesson comes from a request by Aditya from Maharashtra, India. Aditya says he is preparing for a competitive exam and he has to do reading comprehension exercises as part of the exam, and he wants to know the best way to do these. Before we start, if you want to request a lesson, just leave a comment. In your comment, tell me your name, and I will mention you in the video. OK, in this lesson I will give you some important tips and strategies for reading comprehension exercises. I will give you a reading plan that you can follow, and there are exercises in this lesson for you to practice. Alright, now my teaching experience is mostly with exams like the IELTS and TOEFL, but the tips that I give you in this lesson will help you in any exam situation. So the first thing is: when it comes to reading in an exam, budget your time. That means: you should know how many reading passages there are in the exam, how many exercises there are and how much time you have. In the IELTS exam, for example, there are three reading passages and you have one hour to do all of them. So then divide your time amongst those passages – for IELTS, you might spend roughly 20 minutes per passage. In some exams, one passage might be shorter or easier, and another passage might be longer or more difficult. In that case, obviously, you should plan to spend less time on the short passage, and more time on the long passage. And you should time yourself – if you are allowed to wear a watch in your exam, look at your watch and keep track of the time. If you plan for 20 minutes per passage, stick to that plan. Now, if you’re not allowed to wear a watch, then use the clock in the room or hall, or ask the invigilators how much time you have left. Alright, that’s the first thing: budgeting your time. So now the exam starts – and you have the first reading passage in front of you – what do you do? Well, I’ll tell you what you should NOT do – don’t start at the beginning and read slowly to the finish. Many students do this – and the problem is that when you get to the end, you will have forgotten a lot of the details in the middle, and when you read the questions, you have to go back and read the passage again to find the answers. Instead, here’s the plan that you should follow: your first step in reading should be to skim the passage. What does that mean? Well, skimming is actually something that we do with milk. It’s when you heat or boil milk, and the fat rises to the top in the form of cream. Removing that layer of fat is called skimming. When it comes to reading, skimming means to read the surface of the text quickly to understand the overall message. So if there’s a heading or title to the passage, and if there are subheadings, read all of these first. They will tell you the subject of the text. Then read the first sentence of each paragraph – they will give you a good idea of the overall message. Let’s practice this. You see two paragraphs on the screen, but only the first sentence in each paragraph is visible. Stop the video, read the sentences and try to understand the main topic in each paragraph. Alright, so what do you think the topic of the whole passage might be? It could be the negative effects of social media on children. What about the first paragraph? What is it about? Well it says that using social media can affect a child’s writing skills. And the second paragraph? It says that some people don’t agree with this – that is, the first paragraph – for two reasons: scientific reasons and practical reasons (pragmatic).

Steven Pinker
 
01:13:16
Cognitive Scientist Steven Pinker is one of the world’s leading authorities on language, mind, and human nature. His latest book is The Sense of Style, which looks at writing in the 21st Century and why good writing is so difficult. His lecture was witty and irreverent, and included some great examples of classic prose. One explanation for why academic writing is sometimes gobbled is what he calls the Curse of Knowledge, or, when you know something, it’s hard to imagine what it’s like for someone not to know it.

Exam skills: 6 tips to help you with writing exams
 
02:26
Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Watch this video to find out six top tips to help you in your writing exam. Then visit our website and test your understanding in our quiz: http://www.bbc.co.uk/learningenglish/english/course/english-you-need/unit-15/session-1 Transcript Rob Your writing is one of the aspects of the English language you'll be tested on – so as the exam approaches make sure you know what to do. Listen to our top tips to help you on your way! Well before the exam day, familiarise yourself with the structure of the writing test – do plenty of practice tests, preferably in timed conditions. This will help you look at the timing and the type of writing you're expected to produce. But don't just do them – get feedback on your writing and act on it so that you learn from it. Try to rewrite your work based on this feedback. Once you're in the real exam, keep calm! This is examiner, Mark Shea's advice… Mark Shea, Examiner Doing an exam successfully is to a large extent a question of good time management. If you’ve done practice exams before, you should have a good idea of how long each part should take you, and when you have to hurry. Rob So manage your time – know how long you have for each question. Now, read each question carefully - paying particular attention to instruction verbs such as discuss, examine, compare, contrast. Next, make a plan before you start writing – you could possibly write down all your ideas and arguments and plan how to use these in your writing. Now it's time to start writing – as you write, don't forget to keep the appropriate structure in mind and when you've finished, make sure you read what you've written and correct any mistakes you've made – and that you've actually answered the question! Remember the feedback you received for your practice papers and make sure you've acted on this in the real exam. Follow these tips and hopefully everything will go smoothly. Good luck!

Writing Skills: The Paragraph
 
14:33
http://www.engvid.com The paragraph is the most important unit of a well-written essay. The paragraph has a specific structure and standards that make it effective and enjoyable to read. In this writing lesson we will look at how to construct good paragraphs and improve writing with better flow and clarity. After the lesson, take the quiz: http://www.engvid.com/writing-skills-paragraph/ TRANSCRIPT Hi, welcome again to www.engvid.com. I'm Adam. Today's lesson is about the paragraph. It's a writing lesson, and I want to show people what a paragraph is and how to construct one, what to do, what not to do so you can write very clear, very tight paragraphs. This is especially important for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students but everybody has to follow the exact same rules. Now before I even begin, I must say that I'm talking mostly about academic writing or even business writing. Creative writing like novels or short stories, anything fiction, you can do anything you want. Only always remember: somebody has to read what you wrote so it has to be clear. But academic essays, for example, certain rules you have to follow; you have to be very careful about them. So let's begin. In terms of like the actual way a paragraph looks: you have to indent or skip a line. So let me just make sure you understand what an indent is. This is an indent, the first line a little bit pushed in or you can make sure you skip a line between paragraphs. But don't do both. If you skip a line, don't indent. Okay? That's the main thing. Now, that's in terms of the way it looks. In terms of content -- and this, I can't stress this enough -- very, very, very important: one central idea in one paragraph. Okay? I've seen many people, I've seen many essays where you start a paragraph talking about one thing, and then you go off on a tangent and talk about something completely unrelated. So for example: if you start a paragraph and you're talking about apples, continue to talk about apples. If you go to oranges, that's maybe okay because you're still talking about fruit. But if you start with apples, go to oranges, go to bananas, and then end up with monkeys in space there's a bit of a problem; the reader has no idea what you're talking about. One paragraph, one central idea. Now, make sure that you tell the reader what this central idea is. This is your thesis statement. Okay? It's a very general sentence. All it does is introduce the topic of the paragraph, nothing else. All the details comes after. So speaking of details, we'll talk about details in detail, but all other ideas, all the other sentences, all your sentences with the details must directly relate back to the main idea. So let's say here is your thesis statement; very general, every sentence after must relate back to that thesis statement. Okay? You can't go off to another idea. Everything must support this, must talk about the same topic. Very important. Okay? How long should your paragraph be? Technically, a paragraph could be one sentence, but in an academic essay that rarely happens. But it could be any length you want, as long as you're still on that one topic, as long as you still have things to write and things to say about that topic, say it. If you have four sentences, fine; if you have 10 sentences, also okay. Again, for IELTS, TOEFL, SAT students: four, five sentences should be your limit. You can't be too long because you don't have time and you're going to start making mistakes. So now, the details. Very important to have lots of details. Why is this topic important to your overall idea of your essay? Not only tell me what is the topic, what is the thesis statement of the paragraph, make sure you explain to me why this is important to the general idea of the essay. Give me your reasons. Now, why is it important? And then reasons, why you think what you're saying supports this idea. Examples, always use examples because giving me the reasons is okay; examples make me see exactly what you're trying to say. Very easy for me to understand what you're trying to say. Now, in terms of flow, in terms of the way the reader can approach the paragraph, you have to have bridges. What is, what do bridges mean? Basically, when you have one idea in this sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence, you must connect it to the next sentence. Every sentence must have a link to the next sentence. This creates flow, makes it much easier to read and understand, and it keeps you on the one topic. Now, key terms. If you're talking about something specific and you have to use a key term, use it as many times as you need to. Otherwise, avoid repetition. Try not to use the same word more than once in one paragraph. Okay? For example: if you're using the word "moreover" in the paragraph, don't use it, don't use "moreover" again -- use "in addition to", use "furthermore", "another", etc. Try to avoid using one word more than once, especially in the same paragraph.

How to write a good essay: Paraphrasing the question
 
14:39
Do you sometimes struggle to begin writing an essay when taking an exam? Good news! There is an important writing skill that will help you improve your essay introductions. This technique is called "paraphrasing", and it means rewriting something using different words. In this lesson, I will teach you how to paraphrase successfully and how to change essay questions into your own words. These skills are very useful for university and high school students, as well as any students writing English proficiency exams like the TOEFL or IELTS. TAKE THE QUIZ: http://www.engvid.com/how-to-write-a-good-essay-paraphrasing-the-question/ WATCH NEXT: Essay Writing – 6 ways to compare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=F8WSzwBD7GQ TRANSCRIPT Hi, there. My name is Emma, and in today's video I'm going to teach you something very important for if you're taking any type of test that has a writing component. So, if you are taking the IELTS, the TOEFL, the CELPIP, even just a university test, it can be any type of test, but if you're asked to write something like an essay or a paragraph, this video is for you. Okay? So I'm going to teach you a very important skill that will help improve your marks when it comes to writing on tests. So, let's get started. So, I have here an essay question. This question is actually... I've seen it on the IELTS. You know, you have similar types of questions on the TOEFL, sometimes in university. The question is this: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country. Do you agree or disagree?" Or maybe: "To what extent do you agree or disagree?" So, this is an example of a question you might be asked. Now, a problem a lot of students have is in their answer to this question. They see this, and they think: "Okay, education is the most important factor in the development of a country, yes, I agree." So then they... Or: "I disagree", and they start writing. And what do they write? Usually the very first thing students will write is this: "I agree that education is the single most important factor in the development of a country because..." So, what is the problem with this? Is there any problem to start off your essay with something like this, or to start off your answer? There's a big problem. So I want you to take a moment and think: "What could be the problem with starting your essay off with this sentence?" Okay, well, if you noticed, you have here the word: "education, education, is, is, the single most important, most important factor". If you notice, these are the same. They're the exact same, except for: "I agree that" and "because". The student, here, has used the exact same wording that is in the question. So, if you do this on the IELTS-and many students do this, same with on the TOEFL-you actually will lose marks, and same with in university, because you're not showing your abilities; you're just copying what somebody else has said or what the essay question is. So, in this video, I'm going to show you first off... First off, I'm going to tell you: Don't do this, don't copy. And I'm going to teach you ways in order to improve yourself and your answer by changing this wording. How can you change your introduction so it's different than what the question is? Okay? So, let's look at how to make these changes. Okay, so what we are going to do in order to change the question into a proper answer that doesn't just copy the question, is we are going to paraphrase. So, the word here is: "paraphrase". This might be a new word for you. What does it mean to paraphrase something? Well, when we paraphrase, it means we take a sentence that, you know... We take somebody else's sentence and we change it into our own words. Okay? So, we change the words of a sentence, we also change maybe the sentence structure, but we keep all the same meaning. Okay? So, the meaning from the sentence you copy, it stays the same, same meaning, but different words and different sentence structure. Okay? So it's in your words, but this other person's meaning. So, we are going to paraphrase this example of a question into our own words. So, first we're going to look at how to do that using vocabulary and synonyms. So, we have here the same question: "Education is the single most important factor in the development of a country." How can we put this into new words or our own words that keep the same meaning? Well, we can use synonyms. So, this might be a new word for you, too. A "synonym". "Synonyms" are words that have the same meaning, but are different words.

Workflow tools have become tremendously useful to scientific researchers for accessing, processing and analysing data. They have enabled the creation of rapid and robust workflows that can support a range of data analytics and informatics, and provide access to leading components for further processing. The ability for researchers to share workflows with their communities has helped foster further innovation and development, and Open PHACTS has long been actively involved with the KNIME, Pipeline Pilot and Taverna communities. How will workflows continue to meet the challenge of increasing volumes of data? How can we support interoperability among different workflow components? Join us this month for expert presentations on Common Workflow Language (CWL), using KNIME and Open PHACTS to support life science business questions, and a panel discussion with leading pharmaceutical researchers on what's next for workflows.

Composed with artificial intelligence and artists like Stromae, Kiesza... The whole album here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLDLD_n0Am-yOO6qXnB3zLsWJRiZfcEcBf --------------- “Hello World” is the first multi-artist music album composed with Artificial Intelligence. Its goal is to show that AI can be used to create new, compelling music, and not mere lab demos. The album is intended to become a landmark album in the history of technology and music creation. This project started as a research project (the Flow-Machines project, conducted at Sony Computer Science Laboratories and University Paris 6, and funded by the ERC) in which scientists were looking for algorithms to capture and reproduce musical “style”. Many scientific and technical results were obtained. Some prototypes were built, with rudimentary interfaces (and lots of bugs). However, the novelty and huge potential of the approach triggered the attention of a few talented musicians who joined the team. In 2016, we launched a song in the style of the Beatles, Daddy’s car, as well as a less conventional title (Mr. Shadow) that would become the theme of this album. Then more musicians came. At some point, artists took control, and the scientific project became a music project. This album is the result of this story. All the songs were created by artists using the technology: composers, singers, musicians, producers, sound engineers, in many musical genres (Pop, Electronic, Ambient, Jazz). With this diversity of skills, we had a single objective: use these new technologies to create novel, interesting music, yet music that would please our ears. Most importantly, music that the artists wanted to make! Melodic twists, harmonic surprises, timbral juxtapositions, with a strong sense of direction and with the uncompromising goal of making really good music, music that can touch and challenge the fan base of the artists. ...... This album was curated by Benoit Carré, head of SKYGGE and member of the Flow-Machines team. He worked with many musicians: Stromae, Kiesza, Kyrie Kristmanson, Camille Bertault, the Pirouettes, Médéric Collignon, C. Duncan, NZCA Lines, Jata and many others. This is the story of musicians who met in the lab, and took control of the technology to compose the music they had in their souls and which was unleashed by the AI.

How To Write A Novel - Novel Writing For Beginners
 
04:12
https://is.gd/jimbruce Blues Guitar Lessons How To Write A Novel https://tinyurl.com/Novel-Now Best Course Online Novel Writing For Beginners is intended to provide new writers with a set of tools that can be used immediately to improve the prose they write to tell their story. The aim of every author should be to write clear prose that flows, providing an enjoyable experience for the reader who wants to keep turning those pages! New (and experienced) writers are often so close to their writing, that they are sometimes blind to small errors, either in construction or word usage, that rankle with their readers and block the flow of the story. In the case of repeat errors, the reader may even abandon the book altogether. In the course Writing For Beginners, you will learn how to apply simple rules right now that will immediately improve your fiction and begin to answer the question 'How To Write A Novel'. Subjects included: Adjectives & Adverbs - how to use them and when not to use them all. The Active and Passive Voices - what are they and how should they be used? Special Punctuation - the use of semi-colons, ellipses and other marks to spice up your sentences. Writing Numbers - the conventions which guide how to write numbers and dates. Unnecessary Words - overused words are included as well. How to find them, avoid or replace them. Absolutes - these are also called overgeneralizations and blanket-statements. Clichés - how to identify and replace phrases too commonly used in prose. Interjections - what they are, and when to use them correctly. Vague Writing and Initial Coordinating Conjunctions - remedies for two lesser known problem areas. Variety - an essential element in good prose. How to achieve it? The beginning writer generally has a great idea he or she wants to get down on paper; this is the first requirement - to tell the story. It isn't until the editing process that the many faults within the prose become apparent. Our creative side naturally thirsts for plotting, describing the scenes and giving birth to the many characters that populate our novel, so it isn't at all unusual for the quality of our prose to take a beating, particularly when we are new to the game of writing. This course teaches how to identify the areas that often cause problems, which is to say, give the reader problems in following the story fluidly - and enjoy it! At the end of the course you will have access to a set of practical tools that can be applied to your prose quickly, thereby improving it to a more professional level. The final lecture concludes the series and shows how to edit your prose, applying the rules that will dramatically improve your fiction. #writing #novel #fiction #books #howtowriteanovel #acoustic #guitar #blues #lessons #fingerstyle #blues #guitar #acoustic #lessons #fingerstyle

Christopher McDougall: "Born to Run" | Talks at Google
 
01:02:25
The [email protected] program welcomed Christopher McDougall to Google's New York office to discuss his book, "Born To Run". From The Washington Post: "The book flows not like a race but like a scramble through an obstacle course. McDougall wends his way through the history and physiology of running, occasionally digressing into mini-profiles of top-tier racers and doctors, spinning off into tangents about legendary races like the Leadville Trail 100 Ultramarathon, while always looping back to the main narrative. Back on course, he describes his pursuit of the bashful, elusive Tarahumara and their secret to success on foot; his befriending of an eccentric gringo who became part of the tribe and is the key to McDougall's communication with it; and the realization of the eccentric's dream to pit big-name, corporate-sponsored American marathoners against the near-primeval Indians in a super ultra-marathon in the Copper Canyons. A race to end all races, in other words. A sprint to the finish between old and new. The scenario is a writer's dream. McDougall found a large cast of crazy characters, an exotic setting for drama and discovery, and a tailor-made showdown with which to cap the book. By and large it's a thrilling read, even for someone who couldn't care less about proper stride and split times and energy gels. McDougall's prose, while at times straining to be gonzo and overly clever, is engaging and buddy-buddy, as if he's an enthusiastic friend tripping over himself to tell a great story. He writes, for example, of a fellow-runner who "sluiced sweat off his dripping chest and flung it past me, the shower of droplets sparkling in the blazing Mexican sun." A relentless and experienced reporter, McDougall dramatizes situations he did not directly witness, and he does so with an intimacy and an exactness that may irk discerning readers and journalistic purists. "Born to Run" uses every trick of creative nonfiction, a genre in which literary license is an indispensable part of truth-telling. McDougall has arranged and adrenalized his story for maximum narrative impact. Questions crop up about the timing of events and the science behind the drama, but it's best to keep pace with him and trust that -- separate from the narrative drama -- we're actually seeing a glimpse of running's past and how it may apply to the present and the future." "Christopher McDougall is a former war correspondent for the Associated Press and is now a contributing editor for Mens Health. A three-time National Magazine Award finalist, he has written for Esquire, The New York Times Magazine, Outside, Mens Journal, and New York."
