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:

Why does there have to be something wrong? Maybe I just want to visit.” “Yeah, right. You only call when something is wrong. Are you okay?” He chuckled. “Okay, you’re right. I’m going to be fine, but a blast wave threw me against some bricks and I banged my head. I’ve got a concussion so they’re making me lie around doing nothing.” “How bad?” “I’m on sick leave. They’ll restrict duty until I can prove I’m fine. Which I am.” “Hm.” Caitlyn mumbled something Logan couldn’t hear. “Sorry, just getting Ren into the truck. I heard about the bombings in Denver. I can’t believe you didn’t tell me you were involved.” “I’m telling you now. Anyway, how’s Renegade’s training coming?” Logan had helped his sister choose and begin training her German Shepherd-Malinois mix during the low time between the Army and going to the FBI Academy. “He’s doing great. He’s so smart. Sometimes too smart for his own good.” Her voice softened whenever she talked about Ren. “How’s your new dog? Gunner, right?” “Yeah. He’s outstanding. Gunner is staying at the K9 facility while I’m in forced lock-down.” “Stop complaining. Be glad they want to take care of your brain and that you have the best care for your dog while you’re down.” “I guess. How are things at the ranch?” “Mom and Dad are traveling again. They’re in Cancún, enjoying retirement and soaking up the sun. Otherwise, things are the same. Dylan is still being an ass.” “Still won’t She tore the thin musty covering away and held the gown out for scrutiny. The fabric on the sleeveless fitted bodice was a midnight blue-on-blue damask with a broad scoop neckline. Addison liked the elegant top that hung to her mid-thigh, but the underskirt was ridiculous. The seamstress made it with yards of navy tulle covered in sparkles. Bling was not her thing. She tossed the dress on the bed and went down to the kitchen to pour herself a glass of wine. It was only noon, but she needed the boost and savored the rich taste of black currants. Logan told her the wedding was casual. The sparkly gown was too much, but her long belted sweatshirt dress was too little. Frustration pressed down on her, tensing the muscles in her neck and shoulders. She never went anywhere nice. Jeans and leggings were her go to. Why did she care what anyone thought, anyway? Logan. At the thought of him, a tickly sensation bloomed low in her belly and wriggled through her body until it caused her to shiver. Emotions she didn’t want to think about flared inside, and she downed the rest of her wine to douse them. I am SO not going there. Addison stomped back up her stairs, determined to figure out something to wear. She stood in the doorway to her bedroom and stared at the blue dress tossed on the backside of her bed. Only the bodice was visible. The ballerina princess skirt hung

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 1284.58 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.
