Would you like to become a better composer, advance your skills, and increase your creativity? This book can help you: Become a more skilled composer. Be a more prolific composer. Promote your work. Get your pieces performed. Publish your music. Even now, as a published, award-winning composer, if I saw this book, I'd buy it. That's because earning a high school diploma, a college degree, or even an advanced degree is a wonderful, promising achievement--I know. I did that. But the problem is: Diplomas and degrees don't guarantee that you know how to advance your skills and increase your output and success. Degrees don't ensure your continued success in today's complicated, competitive world. A degree doesn't guarantee success especially when you make major or even minor career changes. This book's huge amount of specifics makes it a valuable reference that you read, reread, and consult often. This book is a vital standalone guide for composers outside of formal learning circles and a practical supplement for composers who are studying or who have studied in classrooms. Because composing music is so varied with an enormous number of opportunities, a diverse, international group of 24 fellow composers contributed their ideas to this book. These composers work in different genres and styles. This book includes details of specific composer how-to skills, so composers and those who want to be composers get an intimate, unique view of the private professional procedures and practices of fellow composers--a perspective few composers ever see in one comprehensive source. Let this book's wealth of guidance, insights, and suggestions inspire you! Dive into this book and watch your skills, output, and success blossom!

Creative writing is any writing that goes beyond the boundaries of ordinary formal, journalistic, scholarly or technological types of literature, usually characterized by the emphasis on narrative art, character development, and the use of literary conventions, or the different traditions of poetry and poetry.Due to the lack of definition, writing such as feature stories can be considered as creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of the features focuses specifically on narrative and character development.Fictional and non-fictional works fall within this category, including novels, biographies, short stories and poems. Within academic settings, creative writing is usually split into fiction and poetry groups, with an emphasis on writing in an original style, rather than imitating pre-existing tropes such as crime or horror.Writing for the screen and stage - screenwriting and playwriting - are often taught separately, but they also fall within the category of creative writing.

This is the digital version of the printed book (Copyright © 1998). This book answers the call for a concise, comprehensive introduction to IDEF0 and its application in business process reengineering (BPR) efforts. Here is all the essential information about the IDEF0 method, the function analysis portion of the Integration Definition (IDEF) Methods—its definition, basic rules of usage (including the standard language syntax and semantics as contained in the Federal Standard), and lessons learned from many years of application in the real world. The book features examples based on actual models of commercial clients and government agencies. By studying IDEF0 models, readers learn how the method might be applied to the various aspects of enterprise analysis or systems analysis and what goals and benefits are reasonable to expect from its application. IDEF0 is at the heart of the DoD's version of BPR. In the private sector, industrial organizations that may have initially discovered IDEF through one or more government contracts have adopted it as a method for use with their own corporate BPR efforts. Use this book to apply the techniques of this increasingly popular member of the IDEF family of methods! Three Major Elements of the Method: 1. The concepts are at the foundation of IDEF0, and they preserve the logical sense and intention of the model. These concepts answer why one approach is used over another in the application of IDEF0, and they provide the experienced analyst with the rationale for when it may be necessary to bend the rules. 2. The language of IDEF0 is the analyst's means of describing the activities of an enterprise to other analysts, readers, enterprise management and staff, and others. The language is written in graphical box-and-arrow notation on diagram forms that are structured to form IDEF0 models. 3. The pragmatics of IDEF0 provide the engineering procedures and the do's and don'ts for the use of IDEF0. In many cases, the pragmatics are so closely tied to the concepts and language that they are inseparable, and analysts who have attempted to use IDEF0 without employing the pragmatics have typically been unsuccessful. The most common misuses of IDEF0 are illustrated to show the kinds of problems that can occur if the pragmatics are not followed.
