clippings from this book

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:

of a supercarrier may join us?” he asked incredulously. Smiling, Hill nodded. “Well, we have a few diversions that are going to be created to help with flushing the ships out of port before they’re fully crewed. If the full crew were already on board, there’d be no way they could pull it off. The admiral’s goal is to remove the ship from being used against us. We obviously can’t crew it, and the ship won’t have its airwing, so it’s not like we can use it in any sort of military sense. However, removing the ship from being a part of a blockade or military function that could have been used against us will be a huge political win for our side. It’ll help to show the public that even the military isn’t falling in line with that dictator.” McKenzie sported a devilish smile, which suddenly turned sour. “If Sachs moves forward with this blockade, we could be in trouble. Will the current naval officers actually fire on our ships?” Hill scratched his chin before he responded. “I’m not one hundred percent sure they’ll fire first. I know if they’re fired upon, they won’t hesitate to fire back, but as to whether or not they’ll fire on ships attempting to run the blockade, I don’t know. If they were issued a direct order, I’d say it’s probably fifty-fifty that they would.” “OK… what about the Atlantic side?” McKenzie asked. Hill nodded. “The captain of the USS Colorado, which is M240G machine guns, sending a wall of lead at the enemy soldiers. Red tracer fire raked the German positions as the Americans laid into them. The rest of the Americans’ sixteen Stryker vehicles also joined the fray with their M2 fifty-caliber heavy machine guns, their 30mm chain guns and two Mark 19 automatic grenade guns, showering the enemy soldiers with an unbearable amount of withering gunfire. Popswoosh. A third Javelin flew out of their lines and went straight for the German tank that was doing its best to help its countrymen and kill the missile crews that were still gunning for them. The tank’s main gun leveled at the center of the American lines for the briefest of seconds before it belched smoke and flame. BOOM. BAM. A clump of trees, dirt and underbrush exploded when the nearby Stryker vehicle blew apart. Several other soldiers close to it screamed out in pain as they were hit by the hot shards of flying shrapnel and debris, adding to the chaos erupting all around them. A second later, the Javelin crossed the distance between the two warring factions and slammed into the rear side compartment of the tank. This time, the warhead punched right through the reactive armor, shooting its jet of fire and molten copper directly into the engine and ammunition compartments of the tank. The fuel tanks and ammunition locker instantly ignited and exploded in spectacular fashion. Flame shot up into the sky as the ammunition locker’s blowout doors

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 2336.72 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.
