Fast Food for the Mind: Stories or Tweets?

Fast Food for the Mind: Stories or Tweets? | Creative Writing | Scoop.it
Through social media interactions via online venues like Facebook and Twitter, our society today is overrun in the same way with “fast food for the mind.” Just as our bodies can tolerate only so much unhealthy food, our minds equally have a certain cognitive bandwidth. But instead of spending our bandwidth on deeper thoughts, we often sacrifice it for the instant gratification and distraction of the mind offered by myriad online venues.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, April 10, 2014 9:43 AM

Here is a quick but powerful piece to get you thinking today. It's not a heavey message, it simply calls into question some of our social media habits, and helps put storytelling -- business and personal -- into a different light.


For many years in my work I've talke about the difference between junk food stories and healthful stories. The author, Souvik Choudhury makes the distinction here between fast food stories and wholesome stories. Love it love it.


Go read the article and figure out which ones you want to be telling most of the time (hey -- an occassional fast food story is fun too!).

Once again Carmine Gallo has written another great article on what to do to give a "WOW!" presentation.


As he says here, he watched 150 hours of TED videos and deduced the top 3 things speakers did for success.


This is a quick read, but well worth keeping around. Next time you give a presentation, include these 3 pieces and you can "Wow!" people too.

Writing is love

Flurries Unlimited's curator insight, March 10, 2016 10:17 AM

 

This is a post from my website that I wanted to share with other authors who feel they are in a rut. This happens to all of us from time to time, but doesn't have to be a reason to be intimidated and stop writing.

 

There are a couple of books which helped me jump start my creative thought processes and begin writing again. The added benefit? I was also able to nearly double my written words when I did sit down to write.

 

I've summed up the process in 11 simple steps at the end.

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought

50 Apps That Clarify 50 New Ways To Learn - te@chthought | Creative Writing | Scoop.it

pot"Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

 

Learning through play. Self-directed learning. Flipped learning. Mobile learning. Collaborative learning. Social learning. It’s all here. Alone, none offer the turn-key approach to education that textbooks have traditionally turned to. But this is a strength. As education technology grows, we can adapt to new learning models that take advantage of the fragmented but enormous potential of self-directed, creative, collaborative, and almost entirely mobile learning."
