- Tales for Today (A collection of contemporary fairy tales penned by some of my undergraduate students and shared here with their consent.)
- CRUSH IT!
CRUSH IT! is an experimental project I am working on now. It is a systematic training plus digital writing environment that aims to help student writers (or any writer, really) increase their written virtuosity. It's not ready yet.
- Writing Form A
Writing Form A is simply a set of resizeable text areas arranged in ten rows of three columns. One may employ these areas however one likes; however, I intend them to be used as short-lived writing spaces in which to do, from right to left, freewriting, outlining, and drafting.
- Slow Serial Visual Presentation (SSVP)
Rapid Serial Visual Presentation (RSVP) is a computer-aided reading technique intended to increase reading speed and comprehension. But what if one decided to use RSVP tools to slow down reading instead?
Here's the experiment. First, set up one of the RSVP tools listed below. Then, set the reading speed to 20 words per minute. That's five seconds per word. See how it feels. See how reading this way affects your experience of reading. (You might even try writing after reading at this rate to see how experiencing a text at a very slow reading rate affects how you write.)
