The Secret To Writing Lyrics
Lyrics are one of the most important aspects of songwriting: They're the first thing most people listen to, and they convey your song's story more clearly than anything else. But they're really hard, right? Language is so complicated and weird that many of the structural approaches we theorists like to take for chords and stuff just don't work. Well, fortunately for us, we're not the only ones asking these sorts of questions, and the answers are out there. We just have to look a little further afield.

Parallelism: The secret to great writing
Parallelism or parallel structure is one of the secrets of great writing. It gives greater balance and power to the way you communicate. It will help you get higher grades, improve your job prospects, and look more professional. In this lesson, I explain all about parallelism -- what it is and how to use it correctly. This easy but important lesson will take your English to a higher level. Follow up by watching my lesson on the Magic of 3 to strengthen your English even more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0FcAub-xqGQ&index=94&list=PLxSz4mPLHWDZgp8e6i0oyXOOrTAAaj0O7&t=0s Take the quiz on this lesson here: https://www.engvid.com/parallelism-great-writing/ TRANSCRIPT Hi. I'm Rebecca from engVid. This lesson is for you if you want to learn how to communicate more powerfully in just a short time. This lesson is about something called: "Parallelism" or "Parallel Structure". Now, in case you've never heard of it, or if you've heard of it but you're not sure what it is, I just want to tell you that it's something really important, especially in academic circles or in the business world. All right? And also socially. So, whether you're speaking, or whether you're writing, this principle of parallelism will help you to communicate more effectively. So, first of all, what is parallelism? So, it's a speaking or writing technique in which you communicate more powerfully by balancing different parts of your sentence, and I'm going to show you lots of examples so you understand exactly. So, when we create a sentence that has parallel structure, it means that when we have a list of items in our sentence, all of the forms of speech should be the same. For example, you have verbs, verbs, verbs; nouns and nouns; adjectives and adjectives; adverbs and adverbs. Now, that seems obvious, but in real life when people speak and write, they don't always do that. So I'm going to show you: "What are the benefits of using parallelism?" and also exactly how to use them in a sentence. So, some of the benefits that you will get when you start creating sentences with parallel structure are that your sentences will have more weight, they'll be more balanced, they'll have more rhythm to them, they'll have more style, more clarity (they'll be more clear), and also you'll be able to emphasize things more. And as a result of all that, your speaking or your writing will be much more dramatic and much more powerful. And you may not realize why, but it's really important that this parallel structure exists. Now, in addition, it's not just something to make it better, it's not just something to improve your communication. In academic circles, if you don't follow these parallel structure rules, it's actually considered a mistake in writing; it's considered very weak writing, bad writing, poor writing, and you will get lower grades as a result of that. Okay? So it's really important, especially if you're in the academic world or writing anything serious or in the business world, to write this way. Let's look at some simple examples first. Okay? So, this sentence, the first one: "Janet sings and dances." So here, what do we see? We see verbs and verbs: "Janet sings and dances." If somebody didn't write this sentence properly, they might write: "Janet sings and is dancing." Now, here it didn't match because this was present simple, so this should be a verb in the present simple; they should both be verbs, they should both be in the same tense, and so on. Okay? Let's look at more examples. "We enjoy reading and cooking." Here we have two gerunds: "reading", "cooking". Next: "I like to watch movies and to travel abroad." Okay? Now, you see how that seems really balanced? Okay? So we have: "to watch movies", so we have an infinitive and a noun, and "to travel abroad". "To travel", infinitive and a... Well, it's not a noun, but it's like a noun, it functions like a noun. Next: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." So here we have three adjectives. Now, up til now we had two, now we have three. And if you've watched my earlier lesson on: "The Power of Three" or "The Magic of Three", you will know that this is really special. This is like parallelism on steroids. This is like the best kind of writing you can do, and a lot of very famous leaders and writers write this way, using parallelism in threes to make things much more effective. So, if you haven't watched that other lesson, I will tell you where you can get it; it's called: "The Magic of Three" on our website. So: "The reasons for my view are political, cultural, and social." Three adjectives. "The police acted quickly and carefully." Okay? So we have here: "quickly", "carefully", two adverbs. And last: "We enjoy comedies, dramas, and documentaries." So you have here three nouns. Right? So that's what's important: nouns with nouns, adverbs with adverbs, adjectives with adjectives - you get the idea. Okay? Now, if you get the idea, work with me, stay with me. […]

THE Secret to Writing a Powerful Speech
Secret to Writing a Powerful Speech Public Speaking Coach | Ken Richters | Presentation Skills Coach https://www.workingthestage.com Using blocks to structure a speech is the key to presenting a successful talk. In simple terms, a block represents a self-contained story within a story. Think of each block like a chapter of a book, magazine article, or a scene in a movie. Each block is a story with a beginning, middle and end and, more importantly, a block has a reason for being. A block makes a memorable point AND reinforces the central theme of your talk. A block should run 3, 4 even 5 minutes. But remember, audiences don’t like and won’t pay attention to boring. So the bigger the block the better it has to be. According to a recent scientific study, which surveyed 2,000 participants, and studied the brain activity of 112 others using electroencephalograms, the average adult’s attention span, what they call Selective Sustained Attention (or Focused Attention) is approximately 5 minutes -- and that the good news. The bad news is that our Transient Attention (our short-term response to stimuli, that temporarily attracts or distracts our attention) can be as short as 8 seconds. The average store-bought stick’em in a fish bowl and flush‘em down the toilet when they die goldfish has a 9 second attention span. Which means human beings have a shorter attention span than a goldfish.

Orhan Pamuk: The Secret to Writing is Rewriting
"Pay attention to people's lives," explains the acclaimed author. Then don't be afraid to rewrite and edit and re-edit and re-rewrite and so on. Pamuk's latest novel is "A Strangeness in My Mind" (http://goo.gl/anfSo2). Read more at BigThink.com: http://bigthink.com/videos/orhan-pamuk-on-what-we-can-learn-from-writers Follow Big Think here: YouTube: http://goo.gl/CPTsV5 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/BigThinkdotcom Twitter: https://twitter.com/bigthink Transcript - Other people can learn from a writer's life many things because writer's lives are so different, some are possessed with something that comes from outside, some are possessed with their visions. Likes of me are different. I work like a clerk and then also my books are more like frescoes and epics. So I start from a corner and continue and continue without even knowing what the final picture would be in the end. Forty years of devotion to the art of the novel taught me one thing, that is to pay attention to people's lives, to pay attention what you hear about people's lives. This novel, A Strangeness in My Mind, is based on interviews that I did it with lots of people, that also taught me to be modest about people's lives and play around with the details of their lives until it really sounds more real than reality. Most of my life I did not have a proper editor since I was writing in Istanbul. I am my own editor. But the secrets of writing is rewriting, self editing, reediting, reading to your beloved ones, to your wife, to your daughter, to your partner and hearing the story from other people's point of view never giving up your high standard of criteria, of good writing, and continuing on and on and on and on and editing and editing and taking out, no matter how much time you gave to that beautiful page, perhaps that can also be cut out.

5 Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel — Secret #3: Your Story Structure
Writing a novel without first creating a structure is like building a house without even having a floor plan. Learn how to create the SIX KEY MOMENTS in your novel; these are essential scenes that shape the direction of the story. Get more info: http://www.writetosellyourbook.com/work-with-diane Transcript: Hi! I’m Diane O’Connell, book development expert and founder of Write to Sell Your Book. Welcome back to my video series: Five Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel. Today I’ll share the third secret: Your Story Structure. In my 25 years working with authors, I’ve seen many first-time novelists who write by the seat of their pants without first creating a structure. That’s like a homebuilder who hammers away, building whatever room inspires him before he has a floor plan. Can you imagine the disaster? In creating your structure, you must first establish your novel’s key moments – the blueprint for your book. These are the essential scenes that shape the direction of your story. Key moments that create conflict and raise the stakes higher and higher. Without this, your story takes too long to get going, drags in the middle and ends on a whimper. Here are the six key moments to include: The first key moment is your Current Reality, which establishes your protagonist and novel’s setting. It’s your main character in his everyday life when the story opens. For example, in The Godfather we meet Michael Corleone. His Current Reality is he’s a war hero, determined to avoid his father’s way of life as a Mafia Don. The Second key moment is The Happening -- the event that changes the protagonist’s reality. For example, when Michael Corleone’s father is shot by an adversary, this event is the happening, which he must respond to. The Third key moment is The Choice, where the main character makes a decision that will change his life forever. After Michael gets his jaw broken on orders of his father’s adversary, he vows to seek revenge and masterminds the murder of the rival family. Michael will never go back to his earlier way of life. He has now been pulled into the Mafia. The fourth key moment is The Moment of Truth. At this moment, your character is at his lowest point where he will either rise above his problem or sink into it. Whatever your moment of truth is, make it dramatic. Michael Corleone’s moment of truth is when he decides to decimate the rival families. Michael has sunk deeply into a life of crime. There’s no turning back. Shortly after the moment of truth is The Final Confrontation this is where the main conflict comes to a head. While Michael and his family are in the midst of a baptism, his soldiers carry out his plan, unleashing a torrent of death upon the family’s enemies. The final key moment is the New Reality. For a story to be truly profound, your new reality must be worlds away from the Current Reality we started with — at least in your main character’s eyes. When Michael’s wife accuses him of ordering the death of his brother-in-law, he boldly lies, denying it. He has gone from idealistic war hero to kingpin of a corrupt family business. These key moments raise the stakes, making for a suspenseful, emotionally wrenching story. Crafting your key moments in advance will save you from countless rewrites and will ensure your novel is riveting. I’ll talk about this more in my next video, where I’ll show you how to write your draft quickly. I’m Diane O’Connell. Thanks for joining me. See you in the next video!

If you've ever stared at a blank screen wondering what to write next, you know what I'm talking about. That's how it used to be for me, which is why I have two books that I started which are now collecting virtual dust in my computer. Recently, however, I discovered a method to quickly produce that important first draft. Using the methods that I share with you in this video, I'll show you how to write a book in a way that has enabled me to achieve over 180 words per minute, and 36,000 words within two weeks! I've already completed the first draft of my next book, and I needed to share this method with you too. Of course, there are a lot more steps to take after that first draft, but getting started is the hardest part, and I hope this makes it a little easier for you. Make sure to visit the blog to leave a comment and let me know what the next book you're working on is.

5 Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel — Secret #5: How to Write a First Draft Quickly
Follow these tips to know the things to put in place BEFORE writing your novel's clever dialogue, beautiful imagery or intricate action. Get more info: http://www.writetosellyourbook.com/work-with-diane Transcript: Hi! I’m Diane O’Connell, book development expert and founder of Write to Sell Your Book. Welcome back to my video series: Five Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel. In this video, you’re going to learn How to Write a First Draft Quickly. The best way to do this is to write each scene beat by beat and make sure these moments work before you write clever dialogue, beautiful imagery, on intricate action. This draft should be a plain Jane version of your novel. So what is a beat? Beats are those major moments in which something changes: the moment a character falls in love, decides to make a change in her life, or takes a risk. Then, there are the smaller moments: a character catches another in a lie, realizes she’s made a mistake, or confronts another character. Think of beats as the notes of a song, each note moves the song forward. Here are THREE TIPS to write your draft quickly: First, write only the major beats — of each scene — the beginning, middle and end. This may include external elements: a letter revealing key information to your hero. Or, internal moments: your villain gets an idea. Second, keep it spare. Don’t toil over descriptions, metaphors, or snappy dialogue. Avoid observations, musings, and transitions. Think nuts and bolts. Third, write in short bursts. Use a timer and give yourself 10 minutes per scene. Avoid the temptation to go back and make corrections. Push to the end of your draft. Building the skeleton of your novel or what we call a Mini-Draft, will help you see if your story is evolving properly. Before you flesh out this draft, read it through to see if every scene has a purpose, if the story progresses logically and if the stakes keep raising higher and higher. At this point, you can fix anything that doesn't’ work. Once you’re satisfied with the Mini-Draft, you can go back in and add the language, dialogue, metaphors, imagery, and other finishing touches. Take your time with this step. In fact, you may need to accomplish this in several passes. The Mini-Draft may be plain, but it will show you if your structure is sound before you invest hours and hours in writing. I hope you found this information helpful. These videos are meant to give you an introduction to writing a successful novel, but it’s just the tip of the iceberg. If you’d like to know more about how we can work together, please contact me and let’s get started. Thanks for joining me. Wishing you success in becoming the successful author you are meant to be. www.WriteToSellYourBook.com

5 Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel — Secret #4: Constructing Your Scenes
Learn how to construct the scenes in your novel in the most efficient way possible. Before you dive in, you need to answer two key questions. Get more info: http://www.writetosellyourbook.com/work-with-diane Transcript: Hi, I’m Diane O’Connell, book development expert and founder of Write to Sell Your Book. Welcome back to my video series: Five Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel. Now that you have your key moments, it’s time to create the scenes that fall between them. In this video, I’ll show you how to construct these scenes in the most efficient way possible. Each scene of your novel is made up of one or more of the following: Characters, Dialogue, Action, and Emotion. Additionally, each scene must have a purpose and advance the story. Before you dive in and start writing your scenes, you need to be clear about why you have each scene and what will happen. Otherwise, you’ll end up with scenes that don’t move your story forward and you’ll bore your reader to death. You must first brainstorm a list of possible scenes. Aim to come up with 25-100. Take what happens in the scene and distill it into one to three lines. For example, John asks Mary out on a date, or Greg lies to his father about his promotion. Scene: John asks Mary out on a date. Scene: Greg lies to his father about his promotion. Once you have your list of scenes, it’s time to flesh them out. You’re going to create a stack of scenes on index cards, with one card per scene. If you have multiple points of view, use colored index cards — one color per character so you can keep track of whose point of view you’re using in each scene. Each card will contain: WHO is in the scene WHEN the scene takes place WHERE the scene takes place WHAT happens in the scene WHY this scene is in the novel HOW the scene will be approached Take your scene stack and lay out the index cards in the order you envision. Now — without judgment — read each card in the order you’ve laid them out. Ask yourself these questions: Is there enough variety in settings? They should enhance the scene, not constrain it. If you have too many indoor scenes, bring some outdoors. Don’t be afraid to try unusual settings. Does it have a clear purpose? It’s not enough for a scene to be emotional or funny or colorful or scary. It must have a reason to be in your novel. Does each scene offer something new? If you find there’s overlap, ask yourself “which scene is most essential?” Is the order effective? Here’s where you can play with the order of the scenes to see if the story is stronger if told in a different way. Are there too many points-of-view? Aim to have no more than 5. If you have more, see who can be eliminated or combined with another character. Stick to one point of view per scene. When choosing which character to use, ask yourself, “Who has the most to lose or gain?” This should make it obvious whose point of view to choose. Here’s why this is crucial: If your scene isn’t clear on a 5 x 8 index card, it’s not going to be any clearer in a 20-page chapter. And, in one glance, you’ll be able to see how your story is unfolding. If something’s not working, it’s far easier to fix it in this stage than after you’ve written hundreds of pages. Once you’re satisfied with the number of scenes and the order, stack them back up. In the next lesson, I’ll show you how to use this scene stack to write your novel quickly. I’m Diane O’Connell.

5 Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel — Secret #2: Creating Memorable Characters
Even if your story is unique and your writing is fresh, if you don't create original, multidimensional characters, you can sabotage your chances at a publishing deal. Learn the 4 key elements of memorable characters. Get more info: http://www.writetosellyourbook.com/work-with-diane Transcript: Hi. I’m Diane O’Connell, book development expert and founder of Write to Sell Your Book. Welcome back to my video series: Five Secrets to Writing a Bestselling Novel. In my last video, we talked about defining your novel’s big vision. Once you’ve done this, you’re ready for the next step: creating memorable characters. During my years in publishing and as an editor at Random House, I’ve read many manuscripts that were not engaging. The author created a vivid story or an original premise, but the characters were not compelling. If you don’t create original, multi-dimensional characters, you’ll sabotage your chances for a publishing deal. It’s essential to understand your characters inside and out before you write your scenes. If you address these 4 key elements, you’ll ensure your characters are true to life, multi-dimensional, and memorable. First, ask, “Who is this person?” What are his biggest strengths and weaknesses? What past mistakes does he regret? What is he hiding? What is his Dream vs. the Reality he now finds himself in? The second character element is: How did this character get here? A character’s history colors how he views the present situation and how he reacts to the twists and turns of your novel. The third element is: What does my character want? What your character wants is what determines the events in your novel. And it’s the series of events that drive the story forward and form the plot. Once you know what your character wants, you need to dig deeper to uncover the final — and most important character element: What does my character need? The character’s need is the deeper psychological reason he wants what he wants. This is the greater journey your character is on — the thing he needs to overcome internally. Ultimately, this need will motivate his actions, and his actions will drive the plot. Once you thoroughly discover the 4 key elements of each character, you’re ready to start crafting the structure of your novel. I’ll explore how to build a structure that creates a page turner in my next video. I’m Diane O’Connell. Thanks for joining me. See you in the next video.

The secret to using metaphor (writing tip 67)
A commenter on a previous video noted that “You can get carried away saying 'this is like this and this is like this and this is like this.' It can reach the point where you just want to say 'shut up and get on with the plot.’” It’s a fair point and generally I think you need a good reason to use a metaphor. Usually, for a metaphor to be worthwhile, it has to do at least two things. The O’Connor example is taken from advice on metaphor by Janet Burroway’s excellent Writing Fiction.
