    6 Traits Writing Prompts

    Jeffery Said:Score this SAT I essay on a scale of 1-6?We Answered:As you know, 6 is the highest score (not 1, as your other responder says).

Try not to think about "the big picture" of completing a longer work like a novel - the prospect can be overwhelming.

I did a reading group, just for fun, but now I can't read books the same way. I always look at the components that make the story rather than just enjoying it. Still, if you want to expand your thinking classes will help you. I always wondered how some writers made it through college with...

    Dustin Said:Need help understanding my college writing prompt...?We Answered:Sounds like your prof wants you to talk about things like the moral choices people might have to make when conducting interrogations of people suspected of terrorism activities, or telecom companies turning over a suspect's emails or text messages. What if a person doesn't want to turn over a person's emails to a law officer w/o some better proof than just a claim that the suspect might be involved in something. That person might go to jail, etc. Are there parallels?Edgar Said:What does this College Application writing prompt mean?We...

    Compare And Contrast Writing Prompts

    Gabriel Said:Compare and Contrast Revolution?We Answered:Off the cuff, I'd say it'd be easier to compare it to the Russian Revolution, as the Russian revolution is a bit of a cleaner cut than the Chinese Revolution of 1911, which gets overshadowed by later changes. So it'd be easier to compare the murkiness of the Mexican revolution ( let's be honest, when did Mexico not have a revolution trying to get started) with the Russian one. As to the quick organization, try who were they rebelling against/ situation prior to revolution, opposition forces & events during the revolution (don't forget...

    Creative Writing Competitions

    Glenda Said:I need some authentic Romano-British names?We Answered:One would have expected them to have had Latinized Celtic names, but the reverse seems sometimes to have been the case. The name Gladys, for instance, seems to be a Briticized version of Claudia. Your best bet might be to look at some histories of Roman Britain, such as Tacitus' Agricola and Gildas' De Excidio Britanniae (Of the Destruction of Britain), along with modern histories of the time and place. This isn't as monumental task as it may sound, since translations exist, and all you would really have to do...

    Tim Said:What are some writing contests I can enter??We Answered:There are not many legitimate contests. Glimmer Train is one. Their prize money is quite high too. However they charge a 35 dollar entry fee and they are looking for very "literary" style works. Check with Preditors and Editors. They have a lot of information there. However avoid Rockway Press. That is an error at P and E. If you look them up as a Publisher, you will see P and E does NOT recommend them. Pax-C...

    Creative Writing Essay

    Leslie Said:which is harder to write Creative essay or Personal essay?We Answered:A creative essay does not include a persuasive essay. When the topic or form of the paper is too defined, it ceases being creative. I don't know if there is any essay that isn't personal on some level. Most everyone incorporates their own opinions and views into the work of writing, giving it a personal element. In my mind, a creative essay, while it may be loosely defined by a teacher or professor, it usually comes completely from the imagination of the student. In...

    Creative Writing Examples

    Michele Said:How to decide on a creative title and write a hooking intro?We Answered:When I write essays, I typically leave the title for the last thing I do. I like to pull out words, phrases, or powerful parts that I used in the body of the paper to create a title. This way, it no doubt describes the paper well and it can become creative depending on the level of creativity of the essay. To hook the reader, I would start out with a quotation that will later be dissected into symbols/motifs. Another option would be to use an analogy....

    Creative Writing For Kids

    Betty Said:Looking for some nice comments to write for kids who are very weak in English language?We Answered:Sorry, but your typos/grammatical errors and poor punctuation don't reflect very well upon you as being an English teacher. Seriously, what English teacher out there writes "plz" instead of "please"? You should give them a grade for language and for content. That way, the content grade will reflect more upon their thoughts and effort at doing the assignment, rather than their English abilities. Then you can comment on what they say, not just how poorly they say it. If you...

Given that, I would recommend that you take: Journalism - The ability to produce solid writing for wide audiences is a skill that most admissions officers look for.

With all due respect, I wouldn't shout about that 4th book - after all, it's being published by someone who would publish a book containing lists of ingredients from supermarket items if he thought he could make money from it.

For instance, Jupiter, Earth, Mercury, Mars, Venus, Neptune, Saturn, and Uranus are the popular kids in school. Pluto, however, is the outcast.

Though before she went to Israel she kept hearing about Arab terrorism against Israel, when she arrived she found an apartheid state that oppresses Arab people more than how South Africa appressed African blacks in the 20th century. She finds out that Israel has built a wall around Paletinian cities and villages that is...

    Daily Writing Journal

    Marshall Said:I am currently writing a journal about the daily things that are happening in my life, will it get published?We Answered:I think that it really depends on the sheer content of the journal. I think that if it includes such things as what makes your life different than other teens and ways that teens could relate to your personal situation then people would want to read it.

    Daily Writing Prompt

    Tracey Said:Do daily prompt exercises help you become a better writer?We Answered:I don't like prompts, because they sometimes force me to write about things I don't want to.

You'll get in, I believe, if this is a college essay, and mostly likely without changing this essay at all. Just talk more about a particular major you are passionate about--no one wants a jack of all trades. However, it might be helpful to include a few more obvious mentions of a particular affinity for some higher calling--perhaps a medical, science, or law degree or a master's in education, who knows. You always entice them by ensuring that you...

    Earth Day Writing Prompts

    Brandy Said:What do you think of my college application essay?We Answered:This is extremely well written. Excellent work. However, my major concern is that I think you're misinterpreting the question. You're taking a philosophical approach to the question and that's acceptable. However, it only allows you to give a generic, abstract answer. The same generic answer that most people will give. You should aim for something more practical, something that shows you're aware of the world and don't live in a bubble. By choosing something practical it demonstrates that you're interested in learning and motivated to better yourself. Look for...

    Easter Writing Prompts

    Alberto Said:Christians and Pagan Practices?We Answered:There has been a rather staggering amount of research and investigation showing that almost the entire christian faith was plagiarized from Pagan beliefs and rituals. Everything Jesus said or did was done by previous pagan gods (Osiris-Dionysus)... Their only explanation for this was "Diabolical mimicry" - that the devil knew Jesus was coming and imitated the story several times beforehand... Yes it's weak, but it's their official explanation. Of course they don't have to explain it very often. The church launched a massive smear campaign against the Pagans, calling them evil, devil worshippers,...

My mom and dad met when they were in college and married shortly after that. I came along when my brother was 6. Because of the age differnence we are not very close, but from what I have heard, this will come in the future. Right now, we relate to each other in the typical brother and sister fashion.

By this I mean a female writing in a male perspective, or vice versa. However, one of the best ways to research this style (male perspective) is to read books written in a male perspective by a male author. Read books in a lot of different genres so you can get a feel for the male character. Also, KNOW YOUR CHARACTER. Even if your narrator was female, and you didn't know your character back to front, it wouldn't flow well.Maureen Said:Writers...

As he approaches he sees how armature he was, and remembers the resolution that has come almost back full circle. The ingredients have finally been collected.

Here is a better formula: 1) Grab their attention - don't hit the subject dead-on, hit it at a tangent so they don't realize where you are going. e.g. (a poor example) Do you know how many people die because they get lost on the way to the hospital? 2) Why did you bring that up?

    Roberta Said:Need a name for a photography page, I want to include my initials (J.A.B.).

Perhaps you can compare/contrast the two countries, time periods, and the kinds of love in both. Selfless, like Quasimodo, or selfish like Rebecca, for instance.

    Sergio Said:Life valued through character?We Answered:First, the value of a person's life is determined by the life's wielder. If a man is a mechanic and hates his job, goes home, and watches NASCAR until bed, he's probably not holding his life in a very awesome value. If he loves being a mechanic, has a wife at home, kids, or just REALLY loves NASCAR, his life is valuable. That being said, I don't believe you can assign value to human life. It is one of the few things in humanity that is beyond our comprehension. If I ask you to define a...

If you're still having problems, I'd recommend trying a loose outline - that way you have structure, but are free to throw in twists and turns when you get bored. If you're looking for...

Personally, though, I think that just making an effort and focusing on your positive qualities will be fine. Also, just use the sample essays as a guidline. Yours might not be perfect like the published ones, but that's okay because you're putting your personality into...

Educators debate extending high school to five years because of increasing demands on students from employers and colleges to participate in extracurricular activities and community service in addition to having high grades. Some educators support extending high school to five years because they think students need more time to achieve all that is expected of them. Other educators do not support extending high school to five...

    Scary Writing Prompts

    Jackie Said:I need help with an essay about "The Birds" by: DuMaurier?We Answered:That's the problem with kids today: after Saw and Hostel, nothing short of the threat of immediate decapitation scares them. If you can imagine what reading The Birds would be like withOUT having seen the kinds of horror movies and even TV shows that are out these days, the "terror and suspense"-filled sections may stand out better for you. All I know about the book is that Hitchcock filmed it in '65. Good movie, though not scary if you're under 45 or so. Good luck!Emily Said:I...

    Brandon Said:Why Nature vs Nurture?We Answered:.... I'm not witting a paper for you, but I personally think that nurture has a bigger impact on a persons personality.

It only makes sense that nurture plays a bigger role....

    Science Fiction Writing Prompts

    Alan Said:What role in society to Romance movies play?We Answered:I was going to say that its role is to irritate men....But seriously, I think that romance movies, like any other genre, simply put, give the audience what it wants. If you long for passion and romance, you will probably seek out this type of movie. Example: My wife LOVES the movie, "Under the Tuscan Sun." But, she especially enjoys watching it on Sunday evenings. I guess because it gives a certain romantic escapism which is well-suited for the day before going back to work.Olga Said:College essay about...

    Regina Said:grade my essay! 1-6 6 being the best?We Answered:This does not sound like an essay. It does not look like one either. The thesis statement tells the reader what the essay will be about, and what point you, the author, will be making. You know what the essay will be about. That was your topic.

    Short Story Writing Prompt

    Julio Said:What do you think of my short story? (link)?We Answered:I think it could use some tightening and editing (for example, in the first sentence, simply say: "The clock ticks" without "by" to omit needless words), but overall, has good cohesion and sticks to the theme and assignment. I'd like a little more character development to understand more motivation behind actions. Overall, pretty interesting.

Then I would write a paper on being an alien that landed on earth and the things I would do.

    Spanish Writing Prompts

    Ella Said:Spanish 1 writing prompt?We Answered:I'm wondering why you've been given this prompt, when the conditional tense, which would be useful here, is not taught until Spanish 4. I guess we'll just have to go with the present tense for this. From your avatar I assume you are a guy. A lot of sentences you could write would be really short, like "Me ducho" ("I shower"), so you should try to make the sentences more complicated so the essay isn't like two lines long. For example: "Necesito llevar traje porque un baile es una ocasión especial." = "I need to wear a suit,...

    Spring Writing Prompts

    Jamie Said:Does this start to a book have potential? ( A little lengthy)?We Answered:I'm of two minds about this. Your plot is a little cliched and over done, but I don't think that's anything you really need to worry about. After all, every story ever written is generally based on a few broad concepts (good vs. evil, impossible love, etc.). You didn't say where you intended to go with this story, nor how long it will be. Is it going to be book length? A short story? If it's a short story, you're...

    Standardized Test Writing Prompts

    Ethel Said:Please comment upon my short story.?We Answered:I like all of it alot. It has very good and constant tone throughout. However, the last sentence doesn't really seem to fit the rest of the tone. Maybe something more like: I held the rose close to my heart, its faint, but sweet smell, wafting up my nose. The very scene of when this was given flickered like an old movie in my head; my mother, young, sweet and smiling, my father, bashful but brave, chasing after her. Looking at the vibrant colors of the flower, I finally...

    Steps To Writing A Book

    Ernest Said:does anyone know the steps to writing a book?We Answered:Have you kept the spotlight on your basic theme and main characters? Sub-plots and minor characters should not overshadow these. Have you developed your characters fully, portraying them through their actions, reactions and interactions, and keeping them 'in character' throughout? Don't let them act out of character without a good reason. Has your protagonist changed (or been changed) by the end? A main character who neither changes nor grows in some meaningful way between the first and last pages will be static and unconvincing. Is your story logical? Even a...

    Story Writing Starters

    Nelson Said:Where can I find story starters?We Answered:A generic approach: Scetch details of your main characters. Looks, mannerisms, background, etc. Write the details down - or even draw them if you are a visual person. Then take your main character or characters and imagine them in some odd/out of the ordinary (out of your current works context) places or scenarios – anything goes! Write down ideas on what would have to happen to your type of character or how they would react to the scenario you placed them in. This may seem futile, but it will help you flesh out your characters further...

    Tips For Creative Writing

    Justin Said:Can someone give me some tips for creative writing?We Answered:The most important thing to do when writing a creative writing paper is to relax and let your imagination take the wheel. That might sound stupid, but it will help. You need to think of how the characters are. For example: A very irresponsible/wreckless character might end up going to Hollywood and getting into bad things and eventually dying. A smart/generous character might own his own business and be very respected and have a nice family of 4. The best part about creative writing is you can't be wrong! It's your own personal...

    Theodore Said:Can anybody give me some tips for writing a book?We Answered:If you want to be a writer and maybe, one day, if you're lucky, publish then you have to write.

    Tyrone Said:Court overturns air passenger rights law. Your thoughts?We Answered:I think the judge is right. Aviation is a federal jurisdiction, and you cannot have any state or city or county making laws about subjects over which they have no authority. For one thing, the moment any passenger tried to enforce his or rights under the legislation, the judge would have no option but to dismiss the complaint. You can bet that judges, very very often, hold their noses when they rule on something about which the law is clear. There was an interesting court case in Canada about air passenger rights. ...

    Andre Said:Writing prompts?We Answered:Hi. Writers block affects us all at one time or another. One method of overcoming it that I have found effective is to stop writing for a while. Read other books, do household chores. Your book will ferment in the back of your brain (hopefully). Another weapon is to make a diagrammatic representation of your story. Then think laterally. Read newspapers as triggers. Write a list of trigger words and see if you can find your way from there. Good luck Cheers Jim...

Beforehand, talk to him about what he wants to write. Encourage him to write about something that he is excited about, and before he starts writing, have him start telling you the "story."

First published as a book in 1883, it was originally serialised in the children's magazine Young Folks between 1881-82 under the title The Sea Cook, or Treasure Island.

Part of the grade is a solid demonstration of the English language, like spelling, grammar, etc. You have that part down. My criticism is your introduction. You need to define, in your own words, the conflicts between "knowing facts" and "understanding ideas." Without that, your first couple sentences make no sense. The most important part of the essay is the introduction. It consists of (1) definition of the two sides (2) a clear elucidation...

    Writing Prompts Fourth Grade

    Lois Said:Can someone help with this?We Answered:You seem to be off on the wrong track there. The assignment specifies that you need to "use forms for collecting data from the user" and use form validation to verify user data. So your method of prompting isn't going to work.

It might not work. 2: I've been doing this a long time, I'm a professional web developer with several years of experience and a computer science degree. So if you decide to submit my...

The whole reason you can hear it is because whatever is making the music causes the air molecules to vibrate until they reach your ear. That being said, music also cannot exist on paper because obviously you can only hear music technically speaking. 2) Similarly, poetry normally only exists on paper. ...

    Writing Prompts In Spanish

    Calvin Said:Did i blow the AP Spanish test?We Answered:...Speaking is 50% .....Listening/Reading is 50% Summarizing will result in a low score, *definitely*. Hopefully you used more advanced vocabulary on your summaries. As for the speaking, you are supposed to fill in all 20 seconds. It is a ridiculous (not to say the rest of the test isn't) since sometimes the response of the machine doesn't respond logically to what you said. Plus a 20sec greeting is silly. No of course you can not estimate your score. Like any other tests, you can only guess and hope for the best. I'm assuming you were not...

I swear, if you threw a baseball in a random direction where I live, you'd either hit a kid named Emily or a kid named Brendan. I too see absolutely /no/ reason why parents name their kids common, dull, overused names. Why would you want your child to be the same as everyone else? I know the name doesn't make the person, but it's pretty hard to grow up with a sense of identity when you...

These details should create a unified, forceful effect, a dominant impression. •Narratives, as stories, should include these story conventions: a plot, including setting and characters; a climax; and an ending.
