Crowdsourcing Words: Hiring Others to Write

It is nothing new. Alexandre Dumas crowd sourced the writing of his greatest work in the 1800s, The Count of Monte Cristo. It’s true! Some say that he had up to eighty ghost writers who worked on his novels. In fact there was a joke circulating at the time that went something along the lines of,

Alexandre Dumas says to his son, “Son, have you read my latest novel?” To which his son replies, “No dad, have you?”

The Basics of Transcription Service

From time to time it pays to step back and look at the fundamentals of what you do and why. For transcription service providers, the answers for what and why may be complex and that is especially true if the transcription services cross professional fields, and it’s compounded again if transcribers are crowd sourced. Nonetheless, the self-review process is an important one for those who provide transcription services.

Obviously, transcription services cater for those who require conversion of voice data to text data – that is transcription service at its most elementary level. The reasons to engage a transcription service are many and most commonly are for archival purposes, sharing, storage and publication. As such, the numbers of professionals who use transcription services are many and varied but not limited to those looking for the above solutions alone. For individuals who must regularly address an audience the imperative of a transcription service is even greater and indeed, quite different.

The Essence of Communication

Untitled design-11

On a personal level, the reasons for communication are self-evident. We wish to relay a message or make a request. Dialogue is arguably the most meaningful exchange in personal communication. Dialogue is distinguished from conversation, debate or discussion by the fact that with ‘true dialogue’ there are two critical factors that do not exist in other forms of communication. These are the need to listen; listen in true dialogue is defined as hearing the other person’s position without waiting to interject, and without bias. The other is the intrinsic instinct for dialogue that is inherent in all of us and is an underlying basis of understanding that goes beyond conscious dialogue to something much deeper, which is a communal dialogue.

The Best Way to Solve Writers Block: Part 1

Untitled design-2

You often hear writers and authors talk about experiencing writers block, but you hardly ever hear of a person who gets talker’s block. No one wakes up in the morning, discovers he has nothing to say and sits quietly, for days or even weeks, waiting for the inspiration to arrive.

Why then, is writer’s block so ‘talked’ about? One reason we almost never experience talker’s block is that we’re in the habit of talking without a lot of concern for whether or not our freely spoken words will come back to us. Talk is cheap. Talk is temporary. We often start by talking poorly and eventually, perhaps only sometimes, we talk smart.
