Impact on school attainment Impact on school attainment Many schools have found that daily storytelling can have a dramatic influence on progress in composition. For instance, the initial teacher research into this approach focused on 4-and 5-year-olds in Reception classes.
New York Times and USA Today Bestselling novelist, screenwriter, editor, namer, critic, movie addict and chocoholic Sunday, November 24, Arielle Eckstut and Joann Eckstut talk about The Secret Language of Color, why there are now orange cars popping up, mismatched socks, writing a book with her mom, and so much more One of the reasons I love going to book festivals is because there's always a good chance I'll run into Arielle Eckstut and get to hang out with her.
She's married to the hilarious author David Henry Sterry, and together, as The Book Doctors, they help writers publish and promote their works. Arielle's also an agent-at-large at Levine Greenberg, a fabulous author herself Pride and Promiscuity: The Secret Language of Color, which she wrote with her mom, is both dazzling and profound.
It does what the best books do--it makes you see the world differently by examining and exploring the way we react and relate to color and why and how it's so important.
I'm so completely thrilled to have Arielle--and her mom, Joanne, here on my blog. What was your inspiration for writing this book?
I grew up in an apartment filled with color. There was a room filled with a rainbow of yarns that my mom used for knitting, crocheting and fiber art.
Other rooms had kilim rugs, Marimekko bedding, closets filled with hand-embroidered clothing, colorful Indian cottons, purple suede boots. My mom was a fine artist and her art filled the house with its primary theme—color.
My mom has what is the equivalent of perfect pitch when it comes to color.
This is actually something you can be tested for. I have not taken the test myself, but I'm sure I'm right up there.
Our perception of color was keen and we were always on the lookout for color in its myriad forms. A trip we took to France ended up being a search for the most interesting shutter and door colors.
Trips to the beach consisted of collecting rock rainbows. In the meantime, my mom had transitioned from a fine artist into an interior designer and color and materials expert for architects and developers.
Her signature palettes became integral parts of schools, museums, courthouses, apartment buildings, etc. After a number of years doing commercial projects, she started a residential interior design business with an emphasis on color.
I became a literary agent even though I really wanted to be an industrial designer. Instead I combined my interests in the literary and the visual and specialized in illustrated books. These were our first professional collaborations. Soon after that, a couple of friends and I came up with the idea for LittleMissMatched, a company that sold socks that don't match in packs of threes.
The idea behind that idea was to inspire creativity and self-expression in girls through color and pattern. We did what was considered radical in the business regarding color:Chris Brown continues to grind on the comeback trail, today serving up the video for 'Holla At Me', featuring Young Money star Tyga.
The song is lifted from the pair's new collaborative mixtape. Talk for writing approaches were initially introduced through a series of workshops, which the National Strategies provided in collaboration with professional writer Pie Corbett, in the South West, East and East Midlands regions in /8.
