The Well-Spoken Thesaurus The Most Powerful Ways to Say Everyday Words and Phrases by Tom Heehler

The ultimate guide on how to speak eloquently, including 200 well-spoken alternatives to common words and phrases. If you've ever fumbled while trying to use a big word ('lofty word,' 'pretentious word') to impress a crowd, you know what it's like to ('know what it is to') be poorly spoken.

The secret to eloquence, however, lies in simplicity—the ability to use ordinary words in extraordinary ways. The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is your guide to eloquence, featuring lessons from some of the most articulate speakers of our past and present.

Lessons from history's greatest writers and speakers, including: • Margaret Atwood • Barack Obama • T. S. Eliot • Edith Wharton • Martin Luther King, Jr. • Henry James • Barbara Kingsolver • John Steinbeck The Well-Spoken Thesaurus is the ultimate vocabulary builder for adults seeking to improve their vocabulary and speak better.

Flock - Kate Stewart Cover Art

Flock

Flock (The Ravenhood Book 1) by Kate Stewart

I grew up sick.⁣ ⁣ Let me clarify.⁣ ⁣ I grew up believing that real love stories include a martyr or demand great sacrifice to be worthy.⁣ ⁣ Because of that, I believed it, because I made myself believe it, and I bred the most masochistic of romantic hearts, which resulted in my illness.⁣ ⁣ When I lived this story, my own twisted fairy tale, it was unbeknownst to me at the time because I was young and naïve. I gave into temptation and fed the beating beast, which grew thirstier with every slash, every strike, every blow.⁣ ⁣ Triple Falls wasn’t at all what it seemed, nor were the men that swept me under their wing. But in order to keep them, I had to be in on their secrets.⁣ ⁣ Secrets that cost us everything to keep.⁣ ⁣ That’s the novelty of fiction versus reality. You can’t re-live your own love story, because by the time you’ve realized you’re living it, it’s over. At least that was the case for me and the men I trusted my foolish heart to.⁣ ⁣ Looking back, I’m convinced I willed my story into existence due to my illness.⁣

Start With Why by Simon Sinek -- Summary by Omar Elbaga

“The heart of business” Please Note: This is a summary and analysis of Simon Sinek’s “Start With Why,” not the original book. We summarize and analyze each chapter to help you better understand the original.  Simon Sinek discovers that the key to a successful business is knowing the reason behind your existence, your “Why”. Without this “why” you’re merely competing on superficial traits that constantly fluctuate with the market: price, quality and strategy. The “why” is a set of principles or a vision for the future that should guide everything the organization does. Starting with “why” and working outwards will create stronger companies, improve business, and make our lives better collectively.

Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success by K.M. Weiland

Acclaim for Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success: “Not into outlining? Then someone did not demonstrate it for you the way Weiland has in her book. If you can make a quick trip grocery list, you can outline your next manuscript to benefit your process, using Weiland’s guide.”—Leslie Hultgren “…this is one of the few writing craft books I have read start to finish, was easy to apply to my writing immediately, and helped me follow through on my first draft.”—F. Colley “Ms. Weiland presents a wonderful roadmap for writing while still encouraging you to take those sidetrips that will make your story better. I feel like I can walk the ‘high wire’ of my imagination because I have the safety net of my outline below it all.”—D. Hargan About the Book: Let outlines help you write a better book! Writers often look upon outlines with fear and trembling. But when properly understood and correctly wielded, the outline is one of the most powerful weapons in a writer’s arsenal. Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success will: *Help you choose the right type of outline for you *Guide you in brainstorming plot ideas *Aid you in discovering your characters *Show you how to structure your scenes *Explain how to format your finished outline *Instruct you in how to use your outline *Reveal the benefits *Dispel the misconceptions More Praise for Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success: “…this book has revolutionized the way I think about plotting and outlining and, after months of wishing I could find the ‘joy of writing’ again, I finally have it.”—Ashley March “Each chapter deals with a specific topic and builds a clear idea of the task ahead, and as a great plus every chapter ends with an interview with a published author, explaining how they work their outlines and their personal methods.”—Marcus J. Pinto “…a brilliant tool for any person wanting to learn more about the craft of writing.”—Cherie Reich If your writing has benefited from Anne Lamott’s Bird by Bird or Stephen King’s On Writing, you’re sure to find further inspiration in Outlining Your Novel: Map Your Way to Success. Looking for K.M. Weiland’s fiction? Behold the Dawn—The sins of a bishop. The vengeance of a monk. The secrets of a knight. A Man Called Outlaw—One man stood up unafraid. One man fell alone. One man’s courage became a legend. The Memory Lights—A pickpocket in the slums of Victorian England, she has no memory of her past . . . except for the street lamps that haunt her. One More Ride in the Rain—One last battle remains for three weary Confederate soldiers. Their only choice: to run or to fight? The Saddle Daddy Rode—Her father is dying. Her hope is fading. Where is faith when she needs it?

Remembering Simplified Hanzi Books 1 and 2 - James W. Heisig Cover Art

Remembering Simplified Hanzi Books 1 and 2

Remembering Simplified Hanzi Books 1 and 2 How Not to Forget the Meaning and Writing of Chinese Characters by James W. Heisig

At long last the approach that has helped thousands of learners memorize Japanese kanji has been adapted to help students with Chinese characters. The ebook includes the complete course (Books 1 and 2 of the printed volume) and covers the writing and meaning of the 3,000 most commonly used characters in the simplified Chinese writing system. The 5 comprehensive indexes are hyperlinked to the text for easy access. Of critical importance to the approach adopted here is the systematic arranging of characters in an order best suited to memorization. In the Chinese writing system, strokes and simple components are nested within relatively simple characters, which can, in turn, serve as parts of more complicated characters and so on. Taking advantage of this allows a logical ordering, making it possible for students to approach most new characters with prior knowledge that can greatly facilitate the learning process. Guidance and detailed instructions are provided along the way. Students are taught to employ 'imaginative memory' to associate each character's component parts, or 'primitive elements', with one another and with a key word that has been carefully selected to represent an important meaning of the character. This is accomplished through the creation of a 'story' that engagingly ties the primitive elements and key word together. In this way, the collections of dots, strokes, and components that make up the characters are associated in memorable fashion, dramatically shortening the time required for learning and helping to prevent characters from slipping out of memory.

Writing Your Story's Theme: The Writer's Guide to Plotting Stories That Matter - K.M. Weiland Cover Art

Writing Your Story's Theme: The Writer's Guide to Plotting Stories That Matter

Writing Your Story's Theme: The Writer's Guide to Plotting Stories That Matter by K.M. Weiland

Theme Is What Your Story Is Really About Theme—the mysterious cousin of plot and character. Too often viewed as abstract rather than actionable, theme is frequently misunderstood and left to chance. Some writers even insist theme should not be purposefully implemented. This is unfortunate, because in many ways theme is story. Theme is the heart, the meaning, the point. Nothing that important should be overlooked. Powerful themes are never incidental. They emerge from the conjunction of strong plots and resonant character arcs. This means you can learn to plan and implement theme. In doing so, you will deepen your ability to write not only stories that entertain, but also stories that stay with readers long after the end. Writing Your Story's Theme will teach you: • How to create theme from plot and character. • Why every supporting character and subplot should enhance the theme. • How to prevent theme from seeming preachy or "on the nose." • What to consider in identifying the best theme for any given story. • And much more! Conscious mastery of theme will elevate every story you write and allow you to craft fiction of depth and meaning. Take Control of Your Story Via a Powerful Implementation of Theme

How To Write A Book: Writing A Novel That Sells

How To Write A Book: Writing A Novel That Sells by Dan Brown

This unpretentious little guide through the perils of writing fiction follows the process through four stages: gathering the raw material, planning, rough draft writing, and revision. Novelist Dan Brown shares not only his own experience but also the thoughts of many classic masters of fiction. Teachers call it "common-sensical and wise," raising the right questions and offering suggestions, never rules. Beginning writers call it "reassuring" yet "demanding." Experienced writers say they dip into it again when beginning a novel "or just when I feel low." Beginning writers following this step by step plan will complete a finished novel by the end of this course of study. "Concise and to-the-point. This book is not just about writing; it's about being who you are and doing what you can." - Writer's Digest Dan Brown is a novelist and short fiction writer who currently resides in New York City.

Cocktails were swilled as writers, humorists, actors, and critics poked fun at culture, the arts, and one another. In this lively tribute, today’s readers will come to understand why Robert Benchley, George S. Kaufman, and Dorothy Parker represent the epitome of quips and comebacks—wit that still packs a punch decades later.

Japanese for Busy People II - AJALT Cover Art

Japanese for Busy People II

Japanese for Busy People II Revised 3rd Edition by AJALT

Volume I dealt with "survival Japanese" for tourists and other short-term travelers and newcomers to Japan. Volume II, meanwhile, turns to the basics of Japanese syntax. The book is by no means only about grammar, however. Rather, it is designed to help learners consolidate their understanding of syntactical structure through lessons that focus on how to talk about topics relevant to daily life. In addition to serving learners continuing from Volume I, Volume II will benefit those who have already studied beginning Japanese to some extent but wish to brush up on syntax. Major Features of  Japanese for Busy People II , Revised 3rd Edition, will enable learners to progress smoothly through the equivalent of the latter half of a typical first-year Japanese course while gradually building speaking and listening skills. Learners approaching mid-beginner status often find themselves suddenly faced with syntax and vocabulary much more complex than what they have studied before. Such grammar and vocabulary do not appear as frequently in everyday conversation as those words and structures they have learned up to this point, necessitating that they spend ample time on review. Moreover, learners at this stage are expected to become familiar with verb tense and aspect, time expressions, conditional clauses, and other topics that require them to have a solid grasp of context and speaker intent if they are to fully understand the differences in meaning conveyed by each. Japanese for Busy People II helps overcome the above obstacles through grammar and content topics carefully selected to be appropriate to learners at this level of Japanese proficiency. The book is designed so that by practicing talking about each topic, learners will gradually and effectively acquire sentence patterns and vocabulary related to that topic. Like Volume I, Volume II is organized into several large units, each covering topics grouped under a particular theme. In this way, the book enables learners to achieve a well-balanced understanding of grammar, sentence structure, and context.
