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:

Duwar. I met him at the ambassador’s daughter’s birthday party and I’m guessing he’s the Magician who’s been intercepting messages.” “So they flew into different cities but met at the embassy party,” Mayberry said. “That’s where Gromyko must have passed the gas to him.” Rose Kim laughed loudly, causing Mayberry to pause. “I don’t see what’s funny about that.” Her husband said, “You said Gromyko passed gas.” Garrett smiled. Mayberry didn’t. “Gromyko wouldn’t have wanted anyone from Antifa coming to the Russian embassy to get the canister,” Mayberry said. “He’d want to cover his tracks.” They arrived at the IEC headquarters underground parking garage. On the elevator ride to Kim’s office, Mayberry said, “I don’t think we have a choice now. I’m going to call Marcus Austin. He’s got to alert my bosses at the FBI. If he doesn’t, I will.” “Hold on,” Garrett said. “Harris is still in charge, and he won’t like it. Not when he’s lobbying for his job. If Senator Stone finds out what is happening, Harris will be done.” “Since when do you care about Harris?” Mayberry asked. “I wasn’t thinking about Harris,” Garrett replied. “I was thinking about the three of us. So far, Harris is the only one who knows what we’ve done. He’s betrayed me before, remember? He’ll do it again and blame us if it saves his own neck.” “You’re worried he’ll blame you for Pavel’s death, aren’t you?” Mayberry asked. “Have you done anything for Harris that would best be outfit. A Miu Miu cropped black denim jacket. Worn over a Dolce & Gabbana denim bralette. Skintight Prada black chopped tailored trousers. At least three grand on those three pieces. Valentino Garavani Rockstud combat boots, Italian made: $1,700? Panthère de Cartier sunglasses with gray gradient lenses: at least $900. Another $200 to have her initials engraved on the corner of one lens. Total cost of her rock girl chic outfit, easily $6,000. In contrast, Mayberry’s costume consisted of a Walmart fluted-sleeve floral-print blouse, Old Navy denim jeans with knee holes, and black Nike Flex running shoes. Around $200. It was Rivera’s handbag that most caught Mayberry’s attention. A Louis Vuitton Sac Plat Fusion Fire Led Elvim 19 black leather satchel. Did any of the college boys ogling her realize it alone retailed for $54,000? Rivera stood, having finished her drink and text. She disappeared into a nearby women’s restroom. Mayberry entered the food court and out of habit carried the crumpled cup and soiled napkins that Rivera had left behind to a receptacle before sitting in a chair where she could watch the women’s room. She almost missed seeing Rivera exit. Gone was the designer outfit, replaced by an oversize black sweatshirt worn over black denim jeans. High-top sneakers. Her hair tucked under a black stocking cap. Mayberry assumed Rivera had packed her earlier outfit in the Under Armour gym bag slung over shoulder. Mayberry followed her outside. Watched her deposit the gym bag into the BMW’s trunk

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 1823.96 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.
