No matter what writing expertise you have, we bet you enjoy reading about the source of someone’s genius. There’s nothing like success stories or professional advice to unlock your inspiration. Luckily, we, at Unicheck, had a chance to talk to Stuart Aken, a great novelist and short story writer experienced in creating stories of different genres including science fiction, romance, and horror.
Stuart has gone through many difficulties on his way and finally, he has found his own source of comfort. It was writing. Besides, Stuart has long started running his own website, which now has plenty of useful and engaging material that would certainly be of a big interest for you (the link to the site is given below the post).
Read on to find out how Stuart manages to always create unique stories, what helps him stir his creativity, and what project Stuart is currently working on. Besides, there will be also helpful advice for newbie writers. Here’s the interview we are pleased to share with you!
Ho! Ho! Ho! It’s the cheerful sound of Christmas approaching us on a reindeer sleigh. Twinkling lights and beautifully decorated trees make you quickly get into the Christmas spirit. You will definitely share the Unicheck team’s opinion that it’s also the right time to sum up our achievements and start something new.
Santa Claus also got behind the idea. He calculated the number of delivered presents, logistic expenses, scrolled down the Santa Claus activity log and re-read tones of messages posted on his timeline. Still, something was missing. Every year Santa together with a helpful team of elves, reindeer and Mrs. Claus does the same work. It brings much joy, but to some extent it reminds him of a groundhog day effect.
It was my first time at OEB where I joined my team and spent three crazy days full of tech inspiration and pep talks to smart people. You can’t even imagine what a striking feeling I had introducing new AI/machine learning technology EMMA (authorship definition). So now I would like to say a few words about the conf, what we liked, as well as what could be improved.
Education has long gone digital. Educators successfully use online platforms to exchange feedback with their students, share assignments, plan their lessons or check for plagiarism. Nevertheless, there are countless free software options available online, using them still entails some hidden costs. Actually, average expenses can reach up to 3,000 dollars per teacher. The hidden fees are usually associated with some additional features or expanding the number of users.
Student led conferences have recently replaced teacher-parent ones. There are many reasons of that phenomenon. Before attending teacher-led conferences, parents are prepared to hear teacher’s reprimands and a call to action – tell their children off. At the same time, teachers feel uncomfortable either because they mainly should talk about the pupil’s drawbacks and how to improve them, or they explain their marks basis. That kind of meeting is not efficient, and student led conferences solve that problem. Moreover, preparation takes time, and instead of checking student papers, teachers spend their time on a red tape.
