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:

she was zooming in on was deleted from the machine’s memory. She really didn’t need people inside the building working against her. “Are you handling the telescope, Ms Glory?” said Elena, as she entered the room with another two mugs filled with coffee. Glory chose her words carefully. She would only tell Elena what the assistant already knew and not divulge any new information. If Elena was being honest with her, she would apologize after the mission had been completed but right now she could take any risks as the stakes were just too high. “This is such a fine piece of equipment, Elena,” said Glory with a smile. Elena smiled back. “I am really glad that you came through to try out the telescope,” commented the Colombian lady. “Planetology is so misunderstood. There could be so many life-forms out there that we just don’t know about.” Glory suddenly realized how much she missed her children. What she wouldn’t have given just to hold the twins at this moment! She knew that wherever they were, they would be safe though. Her religious beliefs told her that her children would be safe otherwise she would not have been sent on this journey. Right now she needed to track down those artefacts, but she couldn’t work on that if Elena was present in the laboratory with her. She needed to be alone. “You look tired, Elena, perhaps you should go get some sleep,” said Glory. Ï am sure that I will be day until she felt that she couldn’t go a day without his sweet kisses. His hot tongue explored the roof of her mouth, eliciting moans from her. She was in heaven. The tip of his tongue continued to search the delicate insides of her lips while his hands gently caressed her body. He wove his hands through her glossy hair, lightly caressing it. Alan trailed kisses from her neck to her boobs. Her breasts were only a handful but they were round, soft, and pretty. They were a bit saggy and there were streaks of pale stretch marks on them but he told her that they were beautiful. Those breasts had nursed babies and he thought she was so strong to nurse two babies at the same time. Her nipples were long, pink, and puffy with dark areolas. He gently teased her nipples with his fingers until they grew harder. “I love you Glory,” said Alan. “I love you, Alan,” She moaned. He gently worried her nipple between his teeth, grazing on the tips with his tongue. He sucked on each hard peak for a minute before trailing a tingly path from her belly button down to the curly hairs between her thighs. He combed his fingers through her silky pubic hair as his mouth sought out hers again. He massaged her mound, making her moan with pleasure. He kissed every part of her body, murmuring endearments to her. Glory caressed his muscled chest and backs. Tears stung her eyes

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 1164.88 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.
