Chinese Characters with Associations: Easily Memorize 300 Chinese Characters through Pictures (HSK Level 2) by Lusine Torosyan 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Some Chinese characters are very simple and are made of just a few strokes, while others are made of other simpler characters, which are called radicals. Radicals are simple characters that combine to create compound Chinese characters. They have various meanings and can usually help you to understand the meaning and the pronunciation of compound characters. There are around 200 radicals in the Chinese language; therefore some people compare those radicals with letters or the roots of words. This book focuses on the above-mentioned idea. Here, all the characters are broken into radicals to help you perceive Chinese characters as logical compounds, each representing a part of Chinese history, culture, and philosophy. The book will also show you how each character is used in sentences and phrases. Some characters come along with short grammatical explanations and cultural facts. Most of the character associations in this book have no etymological value, that is, they do not show how the character originated. The associations are made by the author for the sole purpose of remembering how to write the characters. This book is for you if: • You decided to learn Modern Standard Chinese, called "Mandarin" or Put?nghuà. • You want to start learning Chinese simplified characters. • You want to pass HSK Level 2, or you want to start learning in a fun way. • Having the HSK Level 2 vocabulary list, without any explanations, visualizations and grammar points is not enough for you. • You have Visual Memory, so it is easier for you to remember something with visualizations, associations, and games. • You love to have fun while learning!

The Picture of Dorian Gray: The Uncensored 13 Chapter Version + The Revised 20 Chapter Version by Oscar Wilde (e-artnow) 4.3 Stars (3,454 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

This carefully crafted ebook: "The Picture of Dorian Gray: The Uncensored 13 Chapter Version + The Revised 20 Chapter Version" is formatted for your eReader with a functional and detailed table of contents. The Picture of Dorian Gray, the only novel by Oscar Wilde, was first published in 1890. A substantially revised and expanded edition was published in April 1891. For the new edition, Wilde revised the content of the novel's existing chapters, divided the final chapter into two chapters, and created six entirely new additional chapters. Whereas the original edition of the novel contains 13 chapters, the revised edition of the novel contains 20 chapters. The 1891 version was expanded from 13 to 20 chapters, but also toned down, particularly in some of its overt homoerotic aspects. Also, chapters 3, 5, and 15 to 18 are entirely new in the 1891 version, and chapter 13 from the first edition is split in two (becoming chapters 19 and 20). The novel tells of a young man named Dorian Gray, the subject of a painting by artist Basil Hallward. Dorian is selected for his remarkable physical beauty, and Basil becomes strongly infatuated with Dorian, believing that his beauty is responsible for a new mode of art. The Picture of Dorian Gray is considered one of the last works of classic gothic horror fiction with a strong Faustian theme. It deals with the artistic movement of the decadents, and homosexuality, both of which caused some controversy when the book was first published. However, in modern times, the book has been referred to as "one of the modern classics of Western literature. Oscar Wills Wilde (1854 - 1900) was an Irish writer and poet. After writing in different forms throughout the 1880s, he became one of London's most popular playwrights in the early 1890s. Today he is remembered for his epigrams, his only novel (The Picture of Dorian Gray), his plays and poetry, and the circumstances of his imprisonment and early death.

Making Sense of "Bad English": An Introduction to Language Attitudes and Ideologies (Open Access) by Elizabeth Peterson (Routledge) 5.0 Stars (1 Review)    Price verified 4 hours ago

Why is it that some ways of using English are considered "good" and others are considered "bad"? Why are certain forms of language termed elegant, eloquent or refined, whereas others are deemed uneducated, coarse, or inappropriate? Making Sense of "Bad English" is an accessible introduction to attitudes and ideologies towards the use of English in different settings around the world. Outlining how perceptions about what constitutes "good" and "bad" English have been shaped, this book shows how these principles are based on social factors rather than linguistic issues and highlights some of the real-life consequences of these perceptions. Features include: • an overview of attitudes towards English and how they came about, as well as real-life consequences and benefits of using "bad" English; • explicit links between different English language systems, including child's English, English as a lingua franca, African American English, Singlish, and New Delhi English; • examples taken from classic names in the field of sociolinguistics, including Labov, Trudgill, Baugh, and Lambert, as well as rising stars and more recent cutting-edge research; • links to relevant social parallels, including cultural outputs such as holiday myths, to help readers engage in a new way with the notion of Standard English; • supporting online material for students which features worksheets, links to audio and news files, further examples and discussion questions, and background on key issues from the book. Making Sense of "Bad English" provides an engaging and thought-provoking overview of this topic and is essential reading for any student studying sociolinguistics within a global setting.

How to Improve Your Writing: Write Better Faster with 7 Practice Habits to Improve Your Writing Process by Mason Engel 5.0 Stars (4 Reviews)    Price verified 3 hours ago

Featuring Q&As with bestselling authors like Andy Weir, Jodi Picoult, and Gregg Olsen, How to Improve Your Writing presents an uncommon but effective method of becoming a great writer. How do you get better at writing? The "write a lot and read a lot" method of improvement is insufficient. Writing and reading are both necessary, of course, but if that's all you do, you're eventually going to hit a plateau. What then? Engel has the answer. Actually, he has seven. After conducting an online survey, asking over 1,000 writers how they improve their fiction, Engel grouped the answers into seven main categories, 7 Drills to help you write better. With these writing habits, you can level up your craft and reach your publishing dreams. If, that is, you have the secret sauce. The 7 Drills are effective in their own right, but to get the most out of them, you need something called deliberate practice. Pioneered by the researcher who coined the "10,000-hour rule", deliberate practice is practice on steroids, crafted from several principles. This book explains those principles in the context of the 7 Drills, gives real life examples, and provides a step-by-step guide for how to convert your knowledge into effective habits. Take ownership of your talent. You can be better. You just need the right drills. "After surveying the working methods of over 1,000 writers and researching best writing process techniques in available literature, Mason has distilled that information into a very solid, practical, clear, and accessible approach to writing." -Steve Adams, Pushcart-winning author and writing coach

Praise for Story Crisis, Story Climax 1 "This book is not only a great read in that the writing is engaging and well-crafted, but it gives practical examples in the form of a guide I plan to keep on hand for future reference. In addition, the author goes over each point, starting with the inciting incident, turning point one, etc. in such great detail, and without overwhelming, I finally understood these principles I've long heard of and studied to some degree yet never fully grasped. That's not the case any longer after reading Stephen Carter's book." - Silvia Villalobos, Author of Stranger or Friend About the Book Why spend years learning by trial and error? Accelerate your learning curve by watching the key elements of story structure at work in a range of films. Whether your focus as a novelist is writing characters or writing action, in this book you'll see the elements of structure in relationship to each other, the story itself, and others of its genre. Learn the storytelling craft You'll see how a novelist knits together an inciting incident, turning points, and the closing crisis decision and climax. How can story arc help you? See how the process of story change (revealed by the story arc) stretches between two decisions, from Turning Point 1 in Act 1 to the Crisis decision in Act 3. In the former the protagonist commits to the story - to solving the problem. In the latter she commits to the endgame - to confronting the antagonist so the solution is applied. At a loss for story ideas? A person (protagonist) faces a problem (Inciting Incident), finds a solution (Crisis decision), acts on that (Climax), and along the way encounters secondary problems (Act 2A Midpoint, Act 2B TP2). Your next story idea could be any such life-problem that seizes your imagination! You'll discover: • How to harness events to an Inciting Incident early on that crystallizes the one new problem confronting the hero • How to guide your characters into theme-tied ...

High-Tech Trash analyzes creative strategies in glitch, noise, and error to chart the development of an aesthetic paradigm rooted in failure. Carolyn L. Kane explores how technologically influenced creative practices, primarily from the second half of the twentieth and first quarter of the twenty-first centuries, critically offset a broader culture of pervasive risk and discontent. In so doing, she questions how we continue onward, striving to do better and acquire more, despite inevitable disappointment. High-Tech Trash speaks to a paradox in contemporary society in which failure is disavowed yet necessary for technological innovation.

The Plot Dot: An eight-step visual guide to plotting unforgettable fiction and writing a book readers love. by Derek Murphy Price verified 9 hours ago

Writing a book doesn't have to be so hard. A plotting guide for fiction authors who hate outlining. If you've read dozens of books on writing but still struggle with finishing or polishing your story, get stuck in the soggy middle, lose motivation to fix your book after the first draft is done, or can't get readers to stick with your story, this book is for you. After early criticism made me give up writing for nearly a decade, I spent years studying the craft of fiction and boiled everything into a simple, eight-step framework authors can use to improve their writing. Then I added a unique visual framework for creating powerful scenes that readers will love. This book will help you: Organize your story so you can finish a great book, faster Unlock hidden potential in your scenes that you didn't know was there Hook readers faster so they don't quit too early Whether you're a panster or a plotter, the guided exercises in this book will help you gain greater visual clarity, plot and outline your novel, edit and revise your first draft, and renew your enthusiasm for writing fiction. The Plot Dot makes an excellent workbook for writing retreats, is simple enough for children to use (it's never too early to write your first novel), and introduces a new and useful way to organize your book, improve your writing, and create unforgettable scenes that will make a deep and lasting impact.
