Tools for Writing 4 – Scrivener « Mike Shevdon

Tools for Writing 4 – Scrivener « Mike Shevdon | Litteris | Scoop.it

The initial interface presented by Scrivener is relatively simple, showing a rich text editing window together with a structure pane to the left.  The name of the item being edited is shown above the editing pane together with forward and back button so that you can skip back and forth between items like a browser.

There is a button bar across the top with view and search options and a status bar at the bottom which controls the viewing scale and shows the word-count and target.  This simple interface hides a great deal of functionality, preventing Scrivener from appearing daunting to the novice.

Será que o papel da leitura na era digital corre perigo?

Será que o papel da leitura na era digital corre perigo? | Litteris | Scoop.it

No especial da Veja A revolução do pós-papel da edição de 19 de dezembro de 2012, André Petry, correspondente internacional da revista, apresenta uma matéria que propõe esclarecer e desmistificar as mudanças e consequências que a transição da escrita para a era digital trouxe consigo. Sabiamente abre o primeiro parágrafo com Sócrates e suas considerações suspeitosas acerca da disseminação da palavra escrita. Grande defensor da tradição oral, o filósofo temia que os jovens perdessem o hábito de questionar e exercitar a memória, sendo a escrita um recurso tão gratuito. Para ele a irrupção do registro escrito não representava uma solução, mas sim o risco de a palavra deixar de transmitir a veracidade, passando a oferecer apenas a aparência da verdade.

Ebook ainda é clone do livro impresso

Ebook ainda é clone do livro impresso | Litteris | Scoop.it

Por que continuar fazendo ebooks com o mesmo formato dos livros impressos? Essa é a pergunta que ‘martela’ as inúmeras mentes digitais que circulam por ai. O ebook é um novo meio que está em fase de crescimento e nunca irá substituir os livros impressos. Mas, será que precisa? Comparar os livros impressos com os digitais é como comparar relógios mecânicos com relógios digitais, ou carros manuais com carros automáticos.

O problema com os ebooks atuais é a falta de experiência do usuário com a inovação. Como os primeiros programas de TV que exibia gravações granuladas de espetáculos de teatros, os livros digitais tentam ser um ‘clone’ dos livros reais com page-turns e efeitos sonoros, mas essas interações não satisfazem um verdadeiro bibliófilo.

Steal Like Picasso: How Outside Inspiration Can Fuel True Innovation

Steal Like Picasso: How Outside Inspiration Can Fuel True Innovation | Litteris | Scoop.it

Austin Kleon, author of Steal Like an Artist, has quoted Steve Jobs, who cited Picasso’s apocryphal line, “Good artists borrow, great artists steal.” No one knows for sure exactly what Picasso meant (or, for that matter, if he ever even spoke those words), but what is not in dispute is that Picasso was very clever when it came to theft. Instead of stealing from the celebrated artists of his day, which would have made him a second-rate version of Cézanne or Van Gogh, Picasso stole ideas from artists far outside his own milieu.

Queen Mary's University, London, have now made available for free a set of online EAP resources for supplementary study. These were previously developed and only made availablje internally to QMUL students. The task bank is now open access.

This looks like a very rich resource suitable for intermediate university learners and above.  Content is divided into Writing, Reading, Speaking and Grammar, and presented in short sections with activities for learners and feedback which can be hidden or revealed.

TidBITS: Living through the Evolution of Etextbooks

"Now that I’m finishing up college and have some broad experience using etextbooks, I can confidently say that I prefer them over physical textbooks. They aren’t even close to being perfect, but since they are digital, they can at least be iterated upon and improved, hopefully quickly."

Conduzir os alunos para o aprofundamento do conteúdo de um texto exige dedicação do professor. O aproveitamento dos vários contextos de um livro, por exemplo, deve ser instigado em sala de aula para que o aprendizado seja realmente assimilado. Além disso, há o desafio de não tornar a tarefa enfadonha.

The second you walk through the door, even before you kick off your pinchy-toe shoes, you’re saying, “You’re not going to believe this . . .” as you launch into the story, complete with revealing hand gestures, passion, and well timed pauses that effortlessly build to the riveting climax."

Anyone who knows me knows that I love telling stories. (Usually more than once.) The above excerpt essentially describes every single day of my life. Sharing life experiences with people who mean something to me is what makes these experiences that much more exciting.

I am a Realtor not a writer. I still have to use the story in both pictures and words to tell the story of a home I am selling. It is true a picture is worth a thousand words and together a picture and a caption should be not just information but a story. Call me. I can show you the difference.

In the Future, Will Everyone Be a Publisher?

In the Future, Will Everyone Be a Publisher? | Litteris | Scoop.it

For now, publishers can still rely on those services and their print distribution to attract authors. In the future, they won't have that. And as those services become the central differentiator, you have to wonder if the adversarial approach publishers occasionally take with authors (slow payments, lack of transparency) will give way to a true service-oriented approach.
