How novel! Jez Burrows, a writer, was inspired by a very creative writing prompt method. He concocted stories using dictionary words in the New Oxford American Dictionary--created specifically from their unique sentence examples.

 

"Dictionary Stories," his website, showcases these stories that border on the bizarre, funny and charming.

I believe we've all been there. Whether reading or writing, the words become a blur of blah, blah, blah on the page and we close up the book or shut down the computer.

Javier Magallanes's curator insight, September 29, 2015 5:39 PM

"Distracted readers? Use these 6 transition tricks For a smooth Reading Experience" tells about how you as a writer can help keep readers interested through good use of transition words. The article explains how you should always remove weak phrases from your writings and be able to read it without losing interest in what you have read. Another important point that the article brings up is the use of transition words. The author explains how transitional words make the reading experience smoother because they explain the relation between two sentences and therefore makes the reading flow a lot easier. I choose this article because I thought it was very useful for me since I have had issues trying to transition from paragraph to paragraph. The author is a credible source since he is a marketing editor and CEO of his company. He knows what good writing works consist of and makes sure that they are in his work which makes him a credible source.
