How to Write Comparative Essays?

How many times did it occur to you that comparing one thing to another in academic writing is not a piece of cake? In fact, the incapability of doing a profound research to put two phenomena against each other might throw the quality of the whole dissertation in the question.  Therefore, conducting a fluent comparative…

Ski Accident and Time Period for Filing a Lawsuit

Each and every personal injury lawyer - good, bad or any other - must perform according to time limits forced by laws in the specific state wherein they work.

 

Commonly concerned to as a law of Limitations, such time period determines the capacity of an injured one to start legal proceeding against a supposed negligent party in the first run: the case must be considered in the time period defined or the claim is unable to be recovered.

Hello? Is anyone there?

I asked myself this morning what I am doing with my life?  So far, I haven't gotten an answer back yet. 

I asked myself if I was happy.  For me that's a pretty easy one, "yes". 

But being happy, isn't the same as knowing what you are doing.  Is it? 

Going over the checklist of a so called successful life, I'm looking pretty good. 

Nice house, check.  Good, kind, faithful, nice looking husband, check.  Successful, not in trouble kids, check. No health…

A friend of mine has a gift for writing humor. “But,” she says plaintively, “I want to write about deeper issues.”

What is humor anyway? Is it frivolous to write it?

I know people can twist everything, even humor, but I’m talking about the good stuff.

I don’t often write humor per se,…

Mammography Monday's-Week Three!

Mammography Monday’s

Mammography is still the most effective tool in our arsenal in the fight against breast cancer. While screening mammograms will not cure breast cancer, it will position us to stay ahead of the curve in which for most of us is half the battle.

Monday October 20, 2014 (Week Three)

It’s Week Three and if you have not scheduled your Screening…

Just Let Them Have Their Say

Just let them have their say…Anyone in your life who is older than you (okay, so it may be someone way older, but you get the drift)

Cuban Blog Day #22 Oh Hemingway

 

 

I woke early to enjoy my last full day in Cuba.  I walked down Obispo Street, famous in Havana Vieja for its shops and cafes. I was a bit early for all the shops to be open, but it was good people watching.

I walked to the main square and rode up an elevator to the top floor of the eclectic 20th century Gómez Vila building. This building has a periscope called Camera Obscura that gives a live view of the entire city.  It is one of only 74 in…

[SWP: BEHIND THE BOOK] Happy Accidents

I used to be a Birthcenter nurse and work with the nurse-midwives in a major San Diego hospital. Now I write books and design houses. I miss delivering babies with the midwives more than I can say. It’s the most mystical, amazing, rewarding work I’ve ever done. Part of my heart still feels broken, but I’ve found an excellent…

What Makes A Book A Success?

A year after my first book came out, a then-friend said to me, over dinner at an Italian restaurant on a cold winter night: "Your book was a failure." My friend didn't say it harshly--though perhaps it's no surprise that we are not friends anymore. He said it matter-of-factly, as in, the things you hoped for when…

Why Grammar Matters

I recently began watching "The Wire" (yes, I realize I'm 12 years late), and I love it! So far it has lived up to the hype. It also gave me a good idea for this blog post. In one of the early episodes, one of the main characters (a police officer) spends a lot of time preparing a report about possible criminal activity at a housing project in Baltimore, and then presents it to a judge in hopes of gaining authorization for a wiretap. In this particular scene, we see the police officer sitting…

How to Write Compelling and Balanced Backstory

How to Write Compelling and Balanced Backstory | Jeni Chappelle

It’s not an overstatement to say that backstory can make or break your book. Too much, and your readers may be bored to tears—too little, and they won’t know what’s going on.

So this week, I'm over at Elizabeth Spann Craig's blog, giving out tips on the best ways to find that balance in your character's backstory.

So come on over to read more

chapter two from my novel The Moment Divine

Part One: The End of the World; chapter two

Years spent making a comfortable living as a painter hadn’t killed off those brief seconds of doubt when Janie first set eyes on a fresh canvas. Strict gaze worked in tandem with the mind to calculate placement of the first brush stroke in relation to all that followed. Worry was transient. Forgettable. She knew her ability—she had to, or else fail miserably in a line of work that demanded a thick skin.
