Improve your Writing: Show, Not Tell
 
06:08
Become a better writer, no matter what you're writing! I'll show you how to take simple, boring sentences and turn them to vibrant, expressive writing. As you practice this technique in your writing, you will find it carries over to your everyday spoken English as well. Before you know it, you'll be a more dynamic, compelling speaker and writer. Next, watch this video to improve your vocabulary: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QxjsWwgPjwM Take the quiz on this lesson at: https://www.engvid.com/english-writing-show-not-tell/ TRANSCRIPT Welcome back to engVid. Here we are with a writing lesson. We are looking at the skill of showing, not telling, and it's going to transform your writing as long as you put it into practice afterwards. "Show, not tell. What's he talking about?" When we're writing we want to avoid simple statements that don't really add any description or flavour. For example: "The man was stressed." [Snores] Boring. Instead, I want you to paint a picture, I really want you to describe the man is stressed without telling me that he is. So how can you do that? We're kind of trying to avoid this word, and describe it instead. So what's he doing? "The man was fidgeting. Ah, he's fidgeting. He's so stressed, he can't sort of stay still. And biting his nails." Okay? So pick out a couple of details that show how the person was. Next one: "The room was messy." Again, it's a simple, simple sentence. It's just one sort of main clause and it's not very interesting. Much better to describe the items in the room that make it messy. For example: "There was a leftover pizza, dirty clothes were strewn"... I'll write that word for you. That means they were covering the floor. "...and there were dirty plates and cups". Okay? These details give us the idea that it is messy. Example three: "The woman was confident." Okay, but it would be much more effective if you described how she was confident. So, how does she move? How do other people react to her? "She strode", that means she walked, but with purpose. Okay? So I've picked an interesting verb. "She strode into the room, and everyone turned their heads to notice her." Okay? Much clearer, more vivid idea of confidence than just saying she was confident. Example four: "The boy was careful." Tell us how he was careful. "He placed his favourite magazine in the top drawer of his cabinet." Okay? So we need to say exactly what he is placing, the object there has been missed out. "He placed"... There's no room for me to write it. You get the idea, he places his favourite book or magazine, and look how specific it is: "the top drawer of his cabinet". Next example: "The stadium was full." Again, I'm bored with this simple sentence construction. We need to make it more interesting. "The sound from the stadium was deafening", okay? And then give us some main action perhaps: "The sound from the stadium was deafening as the crowd rose up to chant the player's name." Okay? Give the sense that the stadium is full from what you can see and what you can hear. Okay? A couple of ones to describe weather. "It was hot." Okay? Well, a very young child could write a sentence like that, so if you're sort of a teenager or an adult, it's time to raise the bar. How can we tell that it is hot? Well: "The sun was causing damage to", "The sun was melting", "The sun was burning", "The sun was causing the lady's skin to turn red". Okay? Pick out details that show the effect. "It was cold. It was cold." How do we know it was cold? How cold did it feel? What can you see? "Drainpipes were freezing, ice was as thick as"... I don't know. "It was three inches thick." Whatever, you've got to show details rather than just stating things. -"It was windy." -"The umbrella was totally bent out of shape. The umbrella"-you know for keeping the rain off us-"was totally"-that means fully-"bent"-Yeah? Bent-"...out of shape", out of its normal position. "He found it funny." Right? How funny did he find it? Okay? Better to... For us to get the idea to picture what he was doing: "He was rolling around the floor in hysterics." Okay? When you're so... Find something so funny, you're like: [Laughs]. Okay? He can't control his body he finds it so funny. "Hysterics", that means like totally lost control. "Hysteria". Okay? Hysterics. "In hysterics" means finding something really, really funny. "The castle was captured." Right. I want to get a sense of drama. I want to imagine what's happening there at the castle. Is the king having his head cut off? Are the new army marching in? What's happening? "The new flag was hoisted up on high, greeted by a cheer from the crowd." Okay? Paint pictures, pick out details. Okay? It's good to have a range of adjectives, but how can you show those adjectives? How can you describe them instead? Thank you for watching today's video. Have a go at the quiz after this, and I'll see you very soon. Remember to subscribe. Bye.

Part 3 of StoryDTechtive’s series on storytelling culminates in “The Dynamics of a Scene,” discussing the four elements all scenes have in common, as well as dealing with “fragments,” those bridges between scenes so many of us struggle with when we need to transition a character from on place to another or give them time to think.

Publish Your Story: Short Fiction Writer Rosalia Scalia Says Don’t Give Up

Making submissions can be dispiriting for a writer who wants to publish a short story but gets rejection letter after rejection letter. Writer’s Relief client Rosalia Scalia is the first to admit to being a tough critic of her own short fiction. Sometimes, she says, it’s easy to want to give up on getting a short story published. But Writer’s Relief doesn’t give up on publishing a short story until all possible literary markets have been exhausted. Clients like Rosalia Scalia are regularly surprised when short fiction pieces that they had “given up on” are accepted for publication by editors at reputable literary magazines. Many writers find it hard to “see” their own writing—and that can make it difficult to develop a submission strategy that effectively leads to the publication of short fiction. Writing short stories is an emotional experience; for that reason, short fiction writers run the risk of bringing their emotions to the submission process as well. Clients of Writer’s Relief (like Rosalia Scalia) report that working with a team of submission strategists helps remove some of the emotional pressure of making short fiction submissions. Our submission assistance experts help writers determine which short stories to submit for publication at literary magazines—and we also research which literary journals will be the best fit for a given short story using our precision targeting techniques. The result? Short stories that are submitted to editors at literary magazine in the most effective way possible. Is it any wonder that writers who feel critical of one of their own short stories are surprised when Writer’s Relief helps discover an editor who absolutely loves it? When the emotional aspect of the submission process is lessened though the professional submission assistance of Writer’s Relief, short story authors often have more success seeing their short stories published in literary magazines. Sometimes, even when our clients can’t believe in their own writing, we believe for them—and our passion and enthusiasm for making submissions yields excellent results. Short fiction writers like Rosalia Scalia consider Writer’s Relief to be their “secret weapon” for getting published.

Publish In Literary Magazines: Writer Carla McGill Talks About How To Publish In Literary Magazines
 
03:44
Many writers want to know how to publish in literary magazines—especially when it comes to publishing poetry. It’s no easy feat. Not only does a writer need to determine the best literary magazines to consider for a given poetry submission, but that author must also learn the etiquette of submitting poetry for publication. Some writers want help in order to publish in literary magazines. And that’s how writers like Carla McGill came to seek the professional submission assistance offered by Writer’s Relief (http://www.writersrelief.com). Writer’s Relief is a respected submission assistance firm that helps writers publish in literary magazines. We work with submissions in the key creative writing genres: poetry, short stories, personal essays (narrative nonfiction), memoir, novels, and most fiction and nonfiction books. Writers come to us for help with proofreading, manuscript formatting, personalized literary market research, submission tracking, and all the steps a writer must take to publish in literary magazines. Writer’s Relief’s origins reflect our ongoing dedication to high quality, ethical submission assistance. A poet—not unlike Carla McGill—asked Writer’s Relief founder Ronnie Smith to help her make poetry submission to literary journals. Her goal was to publish in literary magazines, but she simply did not have the time or energy needed to get published in literary journals. Soon after Ronnie Smith stepped in to help, Writer’s Relief was born. Now, Writer’s Relief has a client list that includes a range of writers—from promising new authors to veteran bestsellers. Writers who hope to join Writer’s Relief must be writing at a level appropriate for professional submission assistance, and so all prospective clients must first submit a writing sample to the Review Board for consideration. Book authors are assisted with the process of finding literary agent representation; we help writers of creative works publish in literary magazines. It’s not easy to publish in literary magazine, but with dedication and professionalism it’s possible for writers to reach their goals. Rejection letters are expected, of course. But many writers report that working with Writer’s Relief helps to ease the sting of rejections letters—and makes it a lot easier to publish in literary magazines. To learn more about how Writer’s Relief helps writers like Carla McGill publish in literary magazines, please visit our website. We would love to speak with out about your publishing goals. https://youtu.be/CGeTTrIyTLQ

Arthur C Clarke: Writer, Inventor and Visionary
 
05:49
Born in Minehead, Somerset, England, on 16 December 1917, Arthur Charles Clarke became addicted to science-fiction after buying his first copies of the pulp magazine Amazing Stories at Woolworth’s, pursuing his interest through the works of authors H.G. Wells and Olaf Stapledon. Clarke began writing for his school magazine in his teens. Later, in the wartime Royal Air Force, he was put in charge of a new radar blind-landing system and it was an RAF memo he wrote in 1945 about the future of communications - the possibility of using satellites - that led him to fame. Clarke worked at the IEE from 1949 to 1950 and contributed the heading ‘Astronautics’ to the index system. In his spare time, Clarke started writing and his first book commission was for “Interplanetary Flight”, a non-fiction work on space travel published in 1950. The book was well received and is credited as being the first written in English to set out the basic technical theory of spaceflight. The success of Interplanetary Flight led to Clarke embarking on a full-time writing career. Clarke was the author of more than 100 books. He was also the co-author with Stanley Kubrick of Kubrick’s film version of Clarke’s “2001: A Space Odyssey”, but he was regarded as far more than a science fiction writer. He was credited with the concept of communications satellites in 1945, decades before they became a reality. Geosynchronous orbits, which keep satellites in a fixed position relative to the ground, are called Clarke orbits. Clarke’s fame was due in part to his engaging personality and his ability to articulate a holistic overview of where science was leading mankind - and vice versa. On his initial fame, Clarke noted that “Today, people call me the Father of Communications Satellites, but that’s not fair. I only thought up the idea. It took other, incredibly talented people to turn it into reality. Just call me the Godfather.” In keeping with his reputation as a science fiction visionary, Clarke continued to look to the future, declaring that, “The time of super-intelligent machines is fast approaching. I hope that when they arrive - these children of our brains - they will treat us as pets and not exterminate us as vermin. Even if we deserve it.” However, he remained “an optimist”, reasoning that mankind had “a 51 per cent chance of survival”. He concluded by saying, “Our only hope for a better future lies in science combined with wisdom and foresight. I shall be happy indeed if any writings of mine have helped towards this goal.” “Sometimes I am asked how I would like to be remembered,” Clarke said recently. “I have had a diverse career as a writer, underwater explorer and space promoter. Of all these, I would like to be remembered as a writer.” Clarke died in March 2008, after suffering from breathing problems. British astronomer Sir Patrick Moore paid tribute to his friend, saying: “He was a great visionary, a brilliant science fiction writer and a great forecaster. He foresaw communications satellites, a nationwide network of computers, interplanetary travel, he said there would be a man on the moon by 1970 - while I said 1980 - and he was right.” Some content sourced from Wikimedia Commons (CC BY-SA 4.0). 2001: A Space Odyssey footage sourced from theatrical trailer, which is now in the public domain, because it was published in the United States between 1924 and 1977 without a copyright notice.

K'Wan Foye: Speaking about Writing and Publishing Urban Fiction
 
42:57
Born the only child of a poet and a painter, K’wan Foye was surrounded by creativity. For years K'wan composed novels and tried to get published, only to have door after door slammed in his face. Finally, in 2002, K’wan hit the scene with his debut novel Gangsta, under Triple Crown Publications. It was the first novel released by the budding house and would eventually become the building block for what is now a multimillion dollar company. After penning his second novel, Road Dawgz (2003), K’wan drew the attention of St. Martin’s press. The literary powerhouse quickly signed K’wan to a multi-book deal, the first of which was Street Dreams (2004). K’wan’s titles also include Hoodlum (2005), Eve (2006), Hood Rat (2006), Flexin & Sexin: Sexy Street Tales Vol. 1 (2007), Blow: A G-unit novella (2007), Still Hood (2007), Gutter (2008), Section 8 (2009), Flirt: An anthology (2009), From Harlem with Love: A short (2010), The Leak: A Hood Rat Short (2010) Welfare Wifeys (2010), Gangland (2011), Eviction Notice (2011), Love & Gunplay (2012), Animal (2012), Purple Reign (2013) and Animal 2: The Omen, released in late 2013 under Cash Money Content. K’wan is also the author of several dark fantasy novels written under a pseudonym. K’wan has been featured in Vibe, Pages, King, Felon, Big News, The Library Journal, Entertainment Weekly, The New York Press, Clutch and most notably Time Magazine. He was also interviewed by MTV News for a feature on Hip-Hop fiction, and a guest on Power 105’s morning show as well as NPR (national public radio). In addition to being an accomplished author, K’wan is also a motivational speaker and mentor to at-risk children. He currently resides in New Jersey.
