The Source of Bad Writing

The Source of Bad Writing | Litteris | Scoop.it
The 'curse of knowledge,' writes Steven Pinker, is the result of writers' assuming readers understand the subject. This causes bad writing. Good explanations start with imagining what it's like to be ignorant of a subject

And again: THINK ABOUT YOUR AUDIENCE. That combined with the other elements of the writing triangle--your purpose and your tone/style--will help combat the "curse of knowledge,"

¿Por qué el cerebro prefiere el papel?

¿Por qué el cerebro prefiere el papel? | Litteris | Scoop.it

“El cerebro humano puede percibir un texto en su totalidad como una especie de paisaje físico. Cuando leemos, construimos una representación mental del texto. Al pasar las páginas de un libro de papel, se realiza una actividad similar a dejar una huella tras otra por un sendero, hay un ritmo y un registro visible del transcurrir de las hojas impresas.”

» Chaos and Creative Expression - The Creative Mind | Litteris | Scoop.it

Creative people and writers about the creative process often say creative work is a way to release or make use of inner chaos; what is this turmoil?

 

"The very impulse to write, I think, springs from an inner chaos crying for order, for meaning, and that meaning must be discovered in the process of writing or the work lies dead as it is finished." Arthur Miller

Writing for Business is Not Like Writing a Novel

Elaine Roberts, Ph.D's curator insight, September 25, 11:00 AM

This might seem obvious, but sometimes it's too easy to overlook the obvious.


For any kind of writing situation: THINK ABOUT YOUR AUDIENCE. In business writing, think about your secondary audience--the individuals to whom your text is going to be forwarded. As you craft your writing for your manager, imagine it will be read by those at one or two levels higher; imagine it is going to be shared with unexpected readers, perhaps even the media. That's not going to happen for many of us, but as we think about the audience, we think more carefully about the tone and style we use as we make choices about the words and structure we use because we think more specifically about the purpose for which we are writing.

Outlander reforça o sucesso das adaptações literárias para TV | Litera Pop | Litteris | Scoop.it
Adaptada dos livros de Diana Gabaldon, a série de TV produzida pelo canal Starz já pode ser vista como um sucesso, inclusive tendo garantida a sua segunda temporada. A trama que apresenta Claire, que de forma fantástica regride na história encontrando uma Escócia antiga, cheia de conflitos e batalhas, a adaptação é mais uma prova que corrobora a capacidade quase interminável com que a literatura é capaz de fornecer conteúdo para outros meios

Inspire Thoughtful Creative Writing Through Art ~ edutopia

Inspire Thoughtful Creative Writing Through Art ~ edutopia | Litteris | Scoop.it

by Denise Cassano

 

"Children naturally connect thoughts, words, and images long before they master the skill of writing. This act of capturing meaning in multiple symbol systems and then vacillating from one medium to another is called transmediation. While using art in the classroom, students transfer this visual content, and then add new ideas and information from their personal experiences to create newly invented narratives. Using this three-step process of observe, interpret, and create helps kids generate ideas, organize thoughts, and communicate effectively."
