The writer's guide to giving unhelpful feedback

The writer's guide to giving unhelpful feedback | Litteris | Scoop.it

For years I’ve been participating in, and facilitating, writing workshops. I’ve been doing this as a member of writers’ groups, a student and a teacher of writing. These experiences serve as the basis for this guide, which I hope will help you improve your ability to give unhelpful feedback. Mastering this skill is very useful in promoting your own career by impeding those of your fellow writers. In this guide, I offer a variety of strategies illustrated with examples borrowed from experts in the field. Note that you’re likely to encounter here several types of feedback you’re already well familiar with. Do not doubt their usefulness though. Remember, clichés become clichés for a good reason. - See more at: http://writersvictoria.org.au/news-views/post/the-writer-s-guide-to-giving-unhelpful-feedback/#sthash.N7zrhfzH.dpuf

The Fictionary Adds Book-Specific Dictionaries to Ebooks

The Fictionary Adds Book-Specific Dictionaries to Ebooks | Litteris | Scoop.it
A lot of books have their own very specific type of word usage. Whether it’s the Song of Ice and Fire series or Catcher in the Rye, a standard dictionary isn’t always enough. The Fictionary fills in those gaps.

Story Starter Tool | Ozge Karaoglu

Story Starter Tool | Ozge Karaoglu | Litteris | Scoop.it

"Scholastic Story Starters is an online machine that randomly generates a story starter for you. You choose your theme, write your name and grade. Then spin the wheel to get story prompts. Your story starter can be ‘Write three wishes of a giant milkmaid whose tears turn things to stone.’ or ‘Write a mysterious message to a pleasant lion that has a jet pack.’ If you can like, you spin smaller wheels to change different parts of your story starter.  The tool, then, lead you to start writing your story."

Seven Tips from Edgar Allan Poe on How to Write Vivid Stories and Poems

Seven Tips from Edgar Allan Poe on How to Write Vivid Stories and Poems | Litteris | Scoop.it
There may be no more a macabrely misogynistic sentence in English literature than Edgar Allan Poe’s contention that “the death… of a beautiful woman” is “unquestionably the most poetical topic in the world.” (His perhaps ironic observation prompted Sylvia Plath to write, over a hundred years later, “The woman is perfected / Her dead / Body wears the smile of accomplishment.”) The sentence comes from Poe’s 1846 essay “The Philosophy of Composition,” and if this work were only known for its lite
