Zombie Nouns

Few mistakes sour good writing like nominalizations, or, as Helen Sword likes to call them, zombie nouns. Zombie nouns transform simple and straightforward prose into verbose and often confusing writing. Keep your nouns away from the elongating nominalizations! A really interesting watch.

“We’re a generation of idiots, smartphones and dumb people” Look up.

A fantastic piece of spoken word poetry on the perils of living online. According to poet Gary Turk, ‘Look Up’ is a lesson taught to us through a love story, in a world where we continue to find ways to make it easier for us to connect with one another, but always results in us spending more time alone.

This is really worth a look.
