The Psychological Benefits of Writing ~ Sparring Mind

The Psychological Benefits of Writing ~ Sparring Mind | Litteris | Scoop.it

by Gregory Ciotti

 

"The mental benefits of writing are numerous; here's the best research that details just how essential writing is for the intelligent mind.

 

"In these cases, writing has just become another tool for thinking, expression, and encouraging creativity; cabin dwelling novelists be damned.

 

"So, should people who don’t consider themselves writers bother with trying to make writing a regular habit?

 

Maybe.

 

"Writing can be an incredibly useful outlet for many people, but let’s look at some of the research on how writing can affect the mind, and you can make the decision for yourself."

Ken Morrison's curator insight, July 20, 6:48 AM

Things just got interesting as Amazon releases "Kindle Unlimitted" service. You can borrow 10 books at a time from their library of 600,00 for $10 a month.

 

Other options include Oyster and Scribd at similar monthly prices.

Ken's Key Takeaway:
The contracts with publishers is what will determine your satisfaction.  For example, I wish Amazon had a contract with Penguin Publishing. Those books will not be included in this service.  Each service offers a 30-day trial so choose wisely.

Two Politically Incorrect Ways To Improve Writing - Edudemic

Two Politically Incorrect Ways To Improve Writing - Edudemic | Litteris | Scoop.it

"When I killed the five-paragraph essay, it wasn’t because I thought there was anything wrong with it. Some like it–I don’t object, but I started wondering, “Is this how I read?” If not, am I being honest to my students forcing them to write this way?

 

The way we communicate is changing. We have to be willing to change along with it.

 

Over time, we’ve trained our students to ask a question I hate, “How long does this have to be?” as if length alone determines the quality of the work. Like a Zen monk on a hill, I answer “Long enough to leave me feeling smarter when I’m done.” I tell students to perform “The Test.”"
