5 Steps to Make the Writing Process Less Painful

5 Steps to Make the Writing Process Less Painful | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

When you can send a prospect a well-crafted article that addresses his exact question, you've got a powerful tool. You'll get extra points if it's published in a major news source in your industry or has high engagement via social media.

 

So what is the best way to actually get pen to paper (or fingers to keys) and start laying out some prose? Given my seventh-grade love for alliteration, here are the five steps I use when trying to bring out my inner Hemingway: Environment, Exploration, Extraction, Expansion, and Editing....

Every business needs storytelling skills, but there's a key component many companies forget in telling their brand story.

What a cool article. I love the point made about innovation: there are actually 6 different types of innovation in business -- and each is also a story type or genre.


Brilliant. And the author, Clay Hausmann, shares good examples for each type of innovation. Now all we have to do is craft stories for the types of innovation we are involved in.


My guess is that in some companies all kinds of innovation is happening. Here is your list of the types of stories you can tell that reflect the types of innovation at play.


The lesson for us all? Within a story type -- customer stories, let's say -- there are sub-types of stories to capture and share. In my work, sub-types of customer stories are leader stories, fundraising stories, advocacy stories, influence stories, etc. I could drill down into each of these sub-types and find additional story types. For example, leader stories can be broken down further to confidence, visioning, particular values, etc.


The point is that there is an infinite number of stories a business can tell. Use this article as a jumping-off place and start mapping your story types and sub-types. You will be amazed at the material you have, and the different angles you will find!

Content curation requires more than just the selection of information. It’s the assembling, categorizing, commenting and presenting of the best content available.

Blogging as Pedagogy: Facilitate Learning

Blogging as Pedagogy: Facilitate Learning | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

 

Blogging should not be an add-on, not an isolated project, but should be seen as PEDAGOGY.

Ann Davis shared a definition of Pedagogy beyond a  simple “method of teaching” (unfortunately I was not able to find a source of the definition… it seems to be floating around in so many spaces without a common attribution or source.)

The strategies, techniques, and approaches that teachers can use to facilitate learning.

This column will change your life: how to think about writing

This column will change your life: how to think about writing | NGOs in Human Rights, Peace and Development | Scoop.it

The key thing to realise, Pinker argues, is that writing is "cognitively unnatural." For almost all human existence, nobody wrote anything; even after that, for millennia, only a tiny elite did so. And it remains an odd way to communicate. You can't see your readers' facial expressions. They can't ask for clarification. Often, you don't know who they are, or how much they know. How to make up for all this?


Pinker's answer builds on the work of two language scholars, Mark Turner and Francis-Noël Thomas, who label their approach "joint attention". Writing is a modern twist on an ancient, species-wide behaviour: drawing someone else's attention to something visible.

I want to take a look at curation through the lens of blogging. How can educators and students use their blogs to become their own information curators and content curators for others in their learning community.
