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:

was within reach, but it would be a long and difficult path. Their fist would have to be slowly closed around Latvia, proving to the surrounding nations that NATO was powerless to protect them. Internet disinformation campaigns would have to be expanded and modernized, turning countries and citizens against each other. The election of autocratic leaders sympathetic to Russia would have to be supported. Chaos would have to be fomented in Syria and North Africa in an effort to create a refugee crisis that would overwhelm Europe. Krupin had started this process, but it was increasingly obvious that he was no longer capable of finishing it. It was time for Sokolov to begin laying the groundwork for taking control of Russia. Krupin would have to be isolated in such a way that he could still be used as a power base but would have no involvement in generating strategies or setting policy. His strength and intelligence would be missed, but it was the only way that Russia could live on in his image. CENTRAL RUSSIA THEY’D been slower than even Rapp’s worst-case scenario. The back of the mountain they’d come down had been more treacherous than expected, and they’d nearly been taken out by two separate rock falls. Worse, Azarov hadn’t been kidding when he’d said his fitness had slipped. The superhuman he’d been when he trained six hours a day and pumped himself full of PEDs was just a memory now. It wasn’t all bad, though. The Russian was by the dim glow of the terminal, caused his progress to slow significantly. The chain-link fence encircling the airport appeared on his right, providing him a point of reference as he curved around to the back of the facility. The ambulance’s headlights finally appeared in the distance, pulling to a stop next to a military transport plane. The wind picked up with the arrival of dawn, covering the sound of his approach to a degree, but not so much that he was comfortable getting close. The motor cut out again and he released the accelerator, allowing the vehicle to glide to a stop about two hundred meters north of the plane. Azarov got out and climbed the dripping wire fence, running crouched through the overgrown marshland on the other side. At fifty meters, he started to enter the glow thrown by the ambulance lights and illuminated cockpit, forcing him to drop to his stomach and crawl through the brush and mud. His wool coat kept his torso dry but his pants were soaked through immediately, conducting the cold from the ground. He could hear voices but was unable to make out individual words as two men rolled Yuri Lebedev toward the plane’s open cargo bay. Nikita Pushkin and one other man remained near their vehicle, scanning the landscape with AN-94 assault rifles slung across their chests. Azarov rolled to cake the back of his clothing with mud and then scooped up a handful to spread over his face and hair

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 1891.82 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.
