Why have a separate section for “word processing software”? Why not just put it all under “writing software”? Word processing software is writing software by definition, of couse, and much of the software in the “writing software” section above might equally be categorised as word processors. The main difference drawn here is that a word processor is usually used for writing and printing the final document; it shows on screen exactly what you will see when you print. The applications in the “writing software” section are more about developing ideas and getting the words down. Some users may use one of those applications right up to and including printing; many will use one of the dedicated writing applications in conjunction with a word processor, hammering out the first draft in one of the programs above and then exporting it to a word processor for final revisions and formatting.

StoryStore | Home io non sono normale: IO AMO » IL CERVELLO DEI CREATIVI Mag 18 2011 Negli anni ’60, gli studi sul funzionamento del cervello, del dottor Roger W. Sperry e dei suoi allievi Michael Gazzaniga, Jerre Levy, Colwin Trevarthen, Robert Nebes e altri, hanno dimostrato come creatività e empatia siano funzioni dell’emisfero destro del cervello. Ho ipotizzato, perciò, che la personalità creativa sia una struttura di personalità caratterizzata da un emisfero destro particolarmente attivo. Vediamo meglio come funziona il cervello e cosa significa avere un emisfero destro attivo. Il nostro cervello è formato da due emisferi, destro e sinistro, con funzioni e abilità specifiche. Approssimativamente possiamo dire che l’emisfero sinistro coglie le cose in modo analitico, lineare, logico matematico, razionale, consequenziale e oggettivo. Come si può intuire da questo elenco, empatia e creatività sono funzioni che appartengono all’emisfero destro. L’inconscio, infatti, è, per definizione, la sede di ciò che non sappiamo, delle cose di cui non ci ricordiamo più.

WikidPad - wiki notebook for Windows/Linux/Mac OS Exercises in Writing for Beginning Writers Instructor: Jim Manis Email: jdm12@psu.edu Exercises to Generate Creativity Copyright @ 2001 The Pennsylvania State University This site is devoted to offering as many exercises (and general good advise) for creative writing students who wish to avail themselves of them. The first rule to becoming a writer is to write REGULARLY. Keep a Journal: Many of us aren't sure what we should be writing about during that space we set up to write in every day. A journal can be physically made of anything that it is convenient for you to write in and carry around. Keep in mind that a journal is not a diary. Audience: Young writers sometimes make one of the two following mistakes: They either assume they are writing for everyone or that they are only writing for themselves. How then do you determine who you are writing for? Ready to try to some exercises? Click here to go to poetry. Click here to go to story writing.

List of human emotions. List of feelings. I put this list of emotions and feelings together some years ago for use in my counselling sessions. I was aware that men in particular (though of course not exclusively) often struggled to articulate their feelings. I thought it could help to give them a list of emotions and feelings to guide them towards identifying specifically what they felt. Prof. Simon Baron Cohen, in his book “The Essential Difference”, talks about 'empathising' brains and 'systemising' brains. Men are more likely to have systemising brains while women are more like to have empathising brains. The 'emphasisers' are more 'in touch' with their feelings and so can more easily pinpoint the particular emotions they are experiencing at any time. This can mean that women are generally more able to identify and talk about their feelings than men. Of course, I learned over time that sometimes roles are switched. Oh and by the way... clients couldn't care less about the difference between emotions and feelings!

Deep Underground Poetry - Poems, Stories, Spoken Word & Lyrics INTRODUZIONE ALL'EPOCA PREISTORICA In che senso l'uomo primitivo era "primitivo"? In che senso intendiamo questo aggettivo? Non sarebbe stato meglio usare l'aggettivo "primordiale" o "ancestrale"? Nel linguaggio comune "primitivo" ha una connotazione negativa, equivalente a quella di rozzo, ignorante. Il socialismo scientifico parlava di "comunismo primitivo", riferendosi a quell'epoca storica in cui non vi era divisione in classi, ma ha sempre sostenuto la necessità (o comunque l'inevitabilità) di uscire da quella formazione sociale. Quindi, in tal senso, anche il socialismo scientifico contrapponeva l'aggettivo "primitivo" a quello di "evoluto", "scientifico", "consapevole". E se prendiamo le tesi dell'ideologia borghese, la denigrazione nei confronti della preistoria è mille volte maggiore. La "storia" inizia solo con la nascita delle "civiltà": tutti i manuali scolastici e universitari lo dicono, da sempre. Perché l’essere umano è emerso per ultimo in questa linea del tempo? Da dove veniamo non lo sappiamo. Fonti

Online - Thirty Tools for Writers [Author’s note: Of the many things I’ve written for the Poynter website, none has been as popular as my "Twenty Tools for Writers." This list has been quoted, cited, praised, debated, and repurposed by writers, editors, teachers, and other professionals who care about the craft. That folks find these tools useful gives me courage. So I’m adding ten more to my workbench, and sharpening up several others. As you can see, I’m very impressed with myself.
