Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules of Writing

Neil Gaiman’s 8 Rules of Writing | Litteris | Scoop.it

In the winter of 2010, inspired by Elmore Leonard’s 10 rules of writing published in The New York Times nearly a decade earlier, The Guardian reached out to some of today’s most celebrated authors and asked them to each offer his or her commandments. After Zadie Smith’s 10 rules of writing, here come 8 from the one and only Neil Gaiman:

The Difference between Proofreading and Copy Editing, and between Copy editing and Content Editing

The Difference between Proofreading and Copy Editing, and between Copy editing and Content Editing | Litteris | Scoop.it

I am frequently asked what the difference is between proofreading and copy editing. Then there is content editing. What is the difference between copy editing and content editing? Contrary to what most authors think, there are distinct differences among the three.

Hi Sue, I really like your suggestion! For there to be a community of readers, there necessarily has to be a community of writers. It could be anything from fiction to non-fiction. Would be really great!

What’s in a literary name? | OUPblog » Blog Archive

What’s in a literary name? | OUPblog » Blog Archive | Litteris | Scoop.it
“Names and naming are topics of perennial interest, but until recently there were few general discussions of names as a literary feature. This is strange, since questions about names keep coming up in criticism. How are character names chosen? Are literary names always meaningful, or are some characters named quite casually? Does each genre have a list of first names available only for that sort of writing? Corydon, a stock-name for a shepherd, is obviously pastoral, whilst Hodge is clearly georgic. (Thomas Hardy wrote of the farm labourer ‘personified by the pitiable picture known as Hodge’.) Is it necessary for fictional characters to be named at all? After all, in romances a name can be withheld for much or all of the story. When it does emerge it may not be a full name.”

BubokWriter, nuevo editor gratuito de libros electrónicos en formato ePub

BubokWriter, nuevo editor gratuito de libros electrónicos en formato ePub | Litteris | Scoop.it

Ya hemos hablado en más de una ocasión de Bubok, la plataforma española de autopublicación de libros que está presente en España, México, Argentina, Suecia, Portugal, Reino Unido y Colombia. Ahora lanza BubokWriter, un nuevo editor gratuito de libros electrónicos en formato ePub para crear el contenido directamente en la web.

De momento se trata de una aplicación beta, y lo cierto es que se nota cuando lo utilizamos. Cuando estamos trabajando con el editor de libros y tiene que aparecer cualquier cuadro de diálogo me aparecían desplazados a la derecha, lo que resulta muy incómodo si no trabajamos con el navegador, en este caso Chrome, a pantalla completa.

Winning the reading war

Winning the reading war | Litteris | Scoop.it

"At school, reading books usually meant reading about characters I didn’t care about in situations that didn’t ignite my imagination. At home, my Dad tried to bribe me, offering an allowance based on a nightly page-count. He shared his childhood favourites like The Hardy Boys and the Tom Swift novels in an effort to inspire me through a type of intergenerational book club. I rarely made it past the first chapter of those books. They simply could not compete with the mythology and immersive worlds of the "Star Wars" films or even the "Transformers" television show.
But fortunately I did find my way into reading, and I can still clearly remember the two inflection points that fueled my transformation."

How To Ask [for stories]--And Listen [to stories]--Like You Mean It

How To Ask [for stories]--And Listen [to stories]--Like You Mean It | Litteris | Scoop.it

Questions are the expressive, probing language for growing others; listening is the receptive, facilitating language for growing others. These two complementary approaches form a continuous growth conversation loop.


Leaders who are helping others to grow and innovate are always trying to craft the best questions to make a difference. Here's how to ask the questions that will propel your team and your organization forward.


Listening -- I mean listening really well -- is sometimes hard to do. Here's a great article by Kevin Cashman, author of The Pause Principle, reminding us that the more deeply and authentically we can listen to another, the deeper our questions go, and the deeper our understanding becomes.


Listening deeply is the first storytelling skill to build -- so you know which story to share or ask for. And then so you can dig more deeply into the story to understand what it really means.


For leaders, this is essential. For anyone wanting to master business storytelling, it is critical. Many marketing and branding folks have still not caught on to listening as being a vital component when using stories.


Sooooo -- here's a reminder that also contains some great insights, a list of what not to do, and a nice section on the power of authentic questions.


Now I'll go on a hunt and see if I can find an article for you just on the Art of the Question. For as they say in Appreciative Inquiry, the question is the intervention -- so knowing how to craft and ask the question is key.


In the meantime, enjoy this article.

Narrative Exposure Therapy for Depression

Narrative Exposure Therapy for Depression | Litteris | Scoop.it
“Narrative exposure therapy (NET) is a relatively new form of psychotherapy for treatment of individuals with traumatic pasts. In NET, the patient is asked to repeatedly talk about the most traumatic and painful events from their past, dwelling on the pain and ideally re-experiencing every emotion associated with the event. NET---while new---has been demonstrated to be an effective short-term treatment for post-traumatic stress disorders and is best-suited for depression sufferers who've experienced extremely painful pasts and whose mood disorders directly result from those events.”
