This was really interesting and pretty straight forward as far as the do's and don'ts go. If you didn't know where to start, I think this would be a good resource to at least get a feel for things. It does seem to be a well- thought out and precise way to writing a query letter. Certainly food for thought.
You know I pricked my finger on a rose before. Not a good time. That's how I learned roses do have thorns. I think it's sad alot of us feel we have to go through life playing make-believe. It's sad when you feel like there's no one you can just be you with. I'd hope most people would have someone to turn to if needed.
It's interesting how beauty is perceived differently depending where you go. Shakespeare, made sort of a satire piece on his mistress once and it exposed the reality of life more than the image we have of what beauty is. I'm afraid to think about what that says about us as human beings.
I'm sorry about your friend. Sometimes nighttime seems to bring to head the fears we try to ignore during the day into focus. If you can't sleep, it seems to exacerbate the situation. If they haven't already, your friend might try getting professional help if this is affecting their life on a regular basis. I hope your friend finds the peace they need and knows they're not alone in their struggles.
Now I'm hungry.I can definitely do an omelette. There's so many and they're very good. That's right up there with french toast. I don't usually see butterflies except now and again they pop up for a visit.It's nice to think of happier things. You've reallybgiven me a more positive mind now.
Wow,I'm not sure what to say after that.Sometimes people can be really awful. Hopefully, you were able to get some good memories with it.I'm glad you weren't hurt worse from that incident. Sometimes the actions of people can't be fathomed.
Welcome to WDC,hope you feel like part of the community before long.
I like the phoenix mention. It seems very old timey. Could it together folks or you'll be sorry. With poetry, I think it's not always what ypu say but saying it well.Sometimes I think people throw in words to sound more sophisticated but end up not using it properly. I really liked this poem. Going to be thinking of phoenixes for a while yet.
Hi, I think there's somerhing to say for being short and sweet and to the point.Trying to read some poems is a challenge.Shakespeare can be hard till you can get a handle on what he's saying.I don't consider myself a poet.I have to be rather inspired for that.
Thanks for sharing. I'll be sure any future poetry gets to the point.
Food allergies are definitely something you have to be careful with.I think people with nut allergies have something similar. It's amazing how many things you have to watch out for when you can only take in certain foods. It's usually not something you actively think about until you have to.
I wish you well and that you stay healthy during this time.
Interesting, a little unsure if this is.I guess it's meant to be a translation of a rhyming poem. It sounds really sad and still very lovely. Any particular reason this stood out to you? Sometimes it can be for even English natives to try and tackle grammar and the like.Trying to explain all that isn't any easier.
You know your poem really resonates with what's wrong with the world of today. It's very me centric and how does this benefit me. it's not supposed to be like that. Ideally, we're meant to help each other out. Make the world a better place then when we came into it.The world seems to have lost sight of that. Sadly, we live in the world that is and we all most make the best of it however we can.
Anything involving quests can be awesome. You certainly got my attention. I felt bad for Albert when he said ''By myself?'' It's harder to be brave on your own when you don't have the support. Certainly a good group of characters to keep the story going and worth while for the reader.
I like the idea of a hermit convention. But the hermit at the end is probably right. People who want to be by themselves will likely stay that way. Every once in a while people should be able to interact with others when they have a chance. Some may be more in need of it than others. Overall,an interesting idea and a good read.
This was really lovely and so profound in a way. It really gets behind the idea of inner beauty. The soul of a person, their core inner being. Idk if I ever heard it mentioned in such a way before. It's all so peaceful and airy and I just like the tone, it comes off so light.
I can relate to this alot. I also have two good friends. One of them moved to another state.It's harder to keep in touch when great distance is a factor. I'm happy for them but still.I hope you were able to have many happy memories and still have more to come in future.
That's actually pretty good poetry.Getting it flow just right can be a hastle but you pulled it off quite well. Airports aren't alot of fun anyway.Then you add scurity and it can turn into a nightmare.I tend to opt for the aisle or at least the window seat. Never found the middleseat to be ideal.
Idk why but I found this rather profound. People can definitely tell alot more through your actions than anything that comes from your mouth.Be the change you wish to see in the world. You don't have to save the planet but maybe you can many small things that do alot of good. It doesn't always have to be a grand gesture. Sometimes little things we do can make a big difference.
The conversation between the narrator and the lion cubs is interesting. I don't know about the roaring/boring lines you could probably cut that out if you wanted to. It's not till the 'sphinxes' line comes up that this is more evident it's something more than just lion cubs. I guess the ending makes a bit more sense knowing that. So really, it's more a guy trying to pick up girls. Unique way of going about it. Idk how I feel about the last four lines but it could just be me.
The idea is certainly very intriguing. The last sentence, i think thats meant to be a period. Certainly something that would catch people's attention for sure. New innovative ideas are always welcome, especially these days. Definitely around college is when [hopefully] they encourage you to think for yourself. This was an interesting read.
I worried about Deana and I was right. Let them get their own coffee!
I have to say, the space frontier is a great place for the imagination. There's much like the ocean, in which we just don't know what's all out there.
I don't know if they still want to shoot people to Mars any more or not since Bill Nye crushed their dreams. I heard someone saying in five years they wanted to 'stay' on the moon instead of visiting. What would you even do?
Something about gothic genre, be it writing, poetry, whatever, it just feels the melancholy part of you. Maybe when you want something not so cheerful and a little angsty you go gothic. I think that rose at the end could be ominous. But the setting is definitely set and actions are about to take place.
Alright, I'm down with that. I like the leprechaun image that goes with this. Simple, fun, very true. I know in the states it's more of a drinking holiday. My understanding was that Ireland was a bit more reverent of the day. Not that drinking wasn't involved at some point but maybe not as much as elsewhere in the world.
When Dorian was coming through, I had to think about what I would miss if it hit and we lost everything. If you think about it, lot of times, it's just stuff. Stuff can be replaced but life can't be. Somethings have sentimental value and of course we'd be devastated if we cam home and it's all gone.
The human spirit is very hardy and get through a lot of hardships.
I get where you're saying about humanity. Sometimes it sucks to count yourself among humanity.
You as an individual can be who you want and decide what you want to do with your life. It can be hard, and sometimes you don't see anything positive in your life or the world in general.
It doesn't mean you should give up or resign yourself among the masses. People make choices and sometimes they're really terrible ones. That doesn't mean the opposite isn't true as well. You just hear more of the bad than the good and the beauty that's out there.
Everyone has the choice to be part of the problem or part of the solution to making the world better. It starts on the individual front. Within us.
I hope you decide to stick around. I think you have poet in your future.
Haikus are fun to read but a bit harder to write. I love nature haikus. There's just so many different ways to describe nature and fitting it into haiku form can be tricky. I certainly admire people who seemed to have a much better grasp of it than me.
You've certainly got homeschooling down to a science. If you have the time and are able to do so more power to you. You certainly seemed to have it covered on various fronts. I'm sure your kids are getting the very most out of this. To do all that, you have to be pretty disciplined to be able to do that and make sure the kids are doing what they need done. I don't know if that's something I could do.
