Here are few few pieces of advice to motivate you while writing- fiction or nonfiction!
First and foremost, know your subject. If you are writing a story, know your characters. If you are writing an essay, research the topic. The more information you have, the clearer your topic becomes to explain or argue.
Second, be passionate! Whether...
Hello, Peggy and Jake!
I just wanted to put in writing some of the topics that were discussed earlier today.
First and foremost, Jake should hopefully be able to locate his writing folder.
Secondly, the sources we found online for his persuasive essay are listed on the back of the note paper I gave to Jake. One was a census pdf from...
Book, books... Table, tables... Phone, phones... Day, days... So... life, lifes, right? Nope! The plural of life is lives. And, isn't the plural of sheep sheeps? Nope! The plural of sheep is sheep. It's the same word.
Have you ever wondered how to handle all of the rules and exceptions to rules in the English...
For many (most?) high school students, compulsory writing evokes frightful visions of blue essay pamphlets, red editorial comments, and a taunting landscape of white paper refusing to be occupied. The battle between disinterest in the topic and angst towards
a looming deadline is matched only by the uncertainty of having anything worth saying, fear of having the ability to say it well, or both...
Most writing geeks are not fans of adverbs, and I'm no exception. If you believe you're a good writer who has mastered the basics (maybe you've received good comments from your teachers, professors, or peers), consider eliminating as many adverbs as you
can from your writing and replacing them with good, strong verbs.
An example: She walked slowly into the classroom.
I was assigned to write an objective summary of an anthology.
The title I Was going to use for my summary is: Summary of "Lackland"
"Lackland" is the anthology's title...
Learning is evolved by going through a transition. It requires certain skills which contribute for mental processes leading to deliberate human learning. Hence, its an opportunity for each one of us to get the best out
of this process and establish our own standards to improve and progress gradually towards success.
Who wouldn't like to communicate clearly and persuasively to others on the first try? After all, we have ideas and opinions that are important to us! While many people can make compelling arguments in person, explaining these same ideas in writing can
seem more challenging. Writing well is a process that involves research, planning, and revision. Once you have an initial...

I have been involved education as long as I can remember. My parents were educators. They helped start a school, were on the board of another, and were founding board members of the North Dakota Home School Association. I started teaching at the age of
thirteen, as a volunteer. I have taught professionally, for over fourteen years. I have coached soccer. I co-founded a school and taught a wide...

Ernest Hemingway is one of the American writers of all time, but that did not happen overnight. Hemingway was a great writer because he accepted the fact that even great writers write terrible first drafts. The real magic happens in revision. As a writer,
the most important thing to do is write. The time to be critical of your writing is when you come back to it for revision later.
In school, teachers will tell you the exact order in which they want you to write an essay. Often times they will want you to start with an outline, develop a thesis, gather evidence, and then write your essay. However, the more essays that you write,
the more that you will realize that this sequence does not work for everyone. In college, I realized that I often did not develop a good thesis...
Don't feel bad if your personal narrative uses a lot of the word "I." It's very common, and it's hard to avoid. After all, we're writing about ourselves. Ultimately, though, too much of the word "I" can weaken your essay (and even make or break your college
Basically, repetition of the word "I" makes writing boring. Not only does it keep sentence...
Verbs breathe life into your writing. They're responsible for the "vivid images" that your English teacher is always raving about. But frankly, our first drafts almost never use the right verbs; too often, they're chock full of the verb "to be."
"Is" and "are" make writing bland. Great writers use them sparingly, and so should we. Here are three easy...
