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:

are complete before we ship out?” she asked. Once it had been decided that New Eden had to be captured, the shipbuilders had done a quick inventory of the Trimar and Morean they had left to see how many new ships they could build. They could build one battleship or eight destroyers. The decision had been made to build the eight smaller warships and do what they could to beef up the Voyager’s and the Rook’s weapon systems a bit before the fleet would head out. But they could only build the ships so fast, even with the help of the Synths. “We aren’t going to have all eight destroyers ready for you,” said Admiral Bailey. “I only want you to stick around until ship number four is complete, which won’t take that long now.” They nodded grimly. It had been nearly a year since they’d left New Eden. Undoubtedly, the Zodarks would have reinforced the system—the question was by how much. “What about transports for the ground force?” asked Halsey next. She was already trying to plan ahead, beyond the initial battle to secure the system. “That’s going to fall to us,” Bailey responded. “The TPA doesn’t have any orbital assault ships like we do. They’ll be sending a squadron of eight heavy transports to carry additional soldiers, but they won’t be able to assault the planet, not like we can. We’re going to send everything we have. “The Voyager will deliver a full battalion of Deltas. We’ve a ball cap to keep the sun out of its eyes. It had a uniform on with a vest that had some equipment attached to it. It pretty much looked just like the image they had seen on the Voyager. Once Royce had annotated the outerwear of the guard, he transitioned to the guard’s physical features, mostly the face as that was the one feature they couldn’t make out on the ship. He felt stupid calling all of these little details and items out, but he knew the intelligence weenies on the Voyager would look for all these minutiae. He toggled a button on his targeting scope, which gave him the alien’s height. The creature stood three meters tall. The beast’s skin had a bluish tint to it and was covered in thinnish black hair on the exposed parts of its four arms. From underneath the cap, Royce could see a lock of long black hair that flowed behind its body. It looked like it was braided, but Royce couldn’t tell if there was anything interwoven in the braid. The creature’s eyes were weird to look at, like cat’s eyes, with the pupils running vertical, almost like slits. There was a third eye higher on the forehead, in between the other two. It had high cheekbones, and when it talked, you could see both top and bottom rows of teeth, all similar to canine teeth, which meant whatever type of alien life form they were, they most likely ate meat

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 2154.18 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.
