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:

the details. “I can’t believe this! I’ll see if I can take some personal time and be on my way up there as soon as possible.” “There’s nothing you can do right now. I’ll let you know if we need you to come, but for the time being, I was wondering if you knew of a good defense attorney you would recommend? I’m deeply concerned that the sheriff is working under a confirmation bias. I get the sense he’s trying to prove what he wants to be true and doesn’t care about the actual truth at all. I don’t think he’s investigating anyone else.” “It wouldn’t be the first time a law enforcement officer interpreted case evidence in a manner that confirms their own beliefs or theories. I’ll ask around about a lawyer. Are you sure you don’t need me to come up? I think I should.” “Right now, I’m just worried about Dylan’s rights. I think the presence of an attorney will force the sheriff to run this investigation by the books. I don’t believe he has enough evidence to hold Dylan. I’ll let you know if we need you.” Logan was silent for a minute before he quietly asked, “Did he do it, Catie?” It was Caitlyn’s turn to pause. She sighed. “I don’t know.” This was a question she didn’t want to face. “Dylan has been angry and defensive lately. He hardly talks to me. I’m doing my best to find out all the information I can overgrown road. “Roadwas a generous term for a six-foot-wide grass and rock two-track pathway that the forest service cut through the trees probably fifty years ago, or more. A wheeled vehicle had recently matted down the tall grasses, but unless he was searching for them, he wouldn’t have seen the tracks. Colt switched to four-wheel drive when he turned on the path. He followed the trail as it veered upward, bouncing through aspen groves, high meadows, and thick patches of pine. Spring wild flowers were in bloom. He tucked this secret location away in his mind. This would make the perfect place for a long private picnic. He pictured Catie sitting on a blanket with her face tilted up to the sun. At the top of the ridge, the path veered to the right and opened up to a flat rocky area. Colt parked his car. The air was crisp, prickling his nose with the sharp scent of pine. He breathed deep and, scanning the surrounding mountains, attempted to reconnoiter his location. Behind a row of trees stood a barbed wire fence, which he followed until he came to a gate. The back of his neck prickled. He hadn’t realized that the rarely used road lead up to the BLM side of the gate on top of the ridge where Catie found the body. Adrenaline surged through his brain, and his pulse flew. Caitlyn was right to want to investigate the forest access road. Careful of where he stepped

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 1262.40 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.
