We’ve analyzed hundreds of millions of words, from thousands of different authors, training our linguistic models to recognize the most vivid words in the English language… the words that create the most intense sensory experiences: colors, textures, sounds, flavors, and aromas.

Based on our analysis, we’ve scanned through the pages of this book to find the two pages at the extremes, both the most-passive and the most-vivid pages, so that you can compare them side-by-side and see the difference:

drive gone?” “We’re working on the assumption that Nathan Stone has it.” “Are you kidding me? This is a mess.” “Sir, we haven’t used up all our options.” “Maybe not, but you have, Jack.” “What does that mean?” “It means you’re being relieved of your duties, effective immediately.” “Clayton, sir, that’s crazy. We’ve got an ongoing operation.” “It should’ve been wound up by now. But instead we’ve got a full-blown crisis. He’s gone rogue, hasn’t he?” “Sir, we don’t know that.” “What we do know is that things have gone wrong. On your watch, Sands. Maybe the truth of the matter is that Nathan Stone was the wrong man at the wrong time.” “I don’t accept that, sir.” “This has all gone to shit. We have that fuck on the loose in a friendly country, one operative missing, and another deceased.” “Sir, if I can interject here.” “What is it?” “The two main targets have been neutralized.” “But the fallout is potentially catastrophic. The documents on the flash drive. Are you kidding? This is so ridiculous it’s hard to know where to start.” “Sir, I’m asking for a chance to put this right.” “Jack, we go back a long way. You know how it works.” “Sir, I can fix this situation. Gimme a chance.” “You’re out of chances. Drenge is taking over.” “What? When?” “Now. You’re relieved of duties. You’ll be shipped out within the next twenty-four hours by chopper, then taken to the air base, where you will be atmosphere with Brad, his manner distinctly chillier than usual. She wondered if this was a portent of things to come. The journey lasted just over one and half hours. The mountains appeared to rise out of the cold waters of the lake as they approached the whitewashed cottages of Inverie on the shore. As they disembarked, the silence was deafening. After stopping at the luxury lakeside accommodation Brad had booked online a month earlier, Jessica made him a coffee and served up a platter of smoked salmon sandwiches. He looked in the huge refrigerator and saw it was stuffed with milk, cheese, bottled water, champagne, numerous savory snacks. It felt good to have a base, away from everyone else. Crichton ate in silence as he studied a walking guide. It indicated a path behind the cottages that led out onto the mountain trail. When they finished their sandwiches, they put on their walking gear and backpacks and began the hike. The sun glinted off the craggy rocks as they started the steep climb. Crichton felt his breathing becoming more labored. This wasn’t going to be a gentle workout at an air-conditioned gym in DC. They walked higher and higher, the trail getting narrower. They were walking in single file. About a mile along the trail, he stopped for a swig from the bottle of chilled water. He handed it to Jessica, who was squinting against the glare. She took a sip and handed it back. Crichton headed up the dirt

emotional story arc

Click anywhere on the chart to see the most significant emotional words — both positive & negative — from the corresponding section of the text…
This chart visualizes the the shifting emotional balance for the arc of this story, based on the emotional strength of the words in the prose, using techniques pioneered by the UVM Computational Story Lab. To create this story arc, we divided the complete manuscript text into 50 equal-sized chunks, each with 1316.78 words, and then we scored each section by counting the number of strongly-emotional words, both positive and negative. The bars in the chart move downward whenever there’s conflict and sadness, and they move upward when conflicts are resolved, or when the characters are happy and content. The size of each bar represents the positive or negative word-count of that section.
