So, it's 2020 already. Wow, there goes another year that I didn't finish novel #3.
HAPPY NEW YEAR to you all. I hope that 2020 treats you well.
William Shakespeare is considered to be the greatest of writers in English. His literary masterpieces are many. He sprinkled just the right words in just the right places to make a specific point, define a character, create drama, continue the plot, or provide a punch of comedy. His countless words may not be used much today, but they made his work come alive and stand the test of time. Like a master craftsman, Shakespeare has used his knowledge of words to entertain audiences for over 500 years now. The parts of speech serve as the foundation of literacy.
How many of his literary works can you name without looking them up?

Ronald W Reagan,40th President of the United States 1981-89. Noted for being a Conservative Republican, his fervent anticommunism, and his appealing personal style, characterized by a jaunty affability and folksy charm. The only movie star to become President, he had a remarkable skill as an orator that earned him the title "the Great Communicator". During both his Governorship and his Presidency he wrote all of his own speeches. He also authored 33, yes 33 books! One particular speech from over 30 years ago discusses the same problems that the USA are facing today. Watch this U-tube clip.

Although I enjoy hearing your comments about my blog articles, I really DO NOT appreciate some of you using my site as an open forum for you to advertise your various wares. Some of which I find to be highly offensive. DO NOT ADVERTISE ON THIS SITE. Thank you.
A book is not just a book.

Write what you know
|Posted on March 26, 2018 at 1:04 PM||comments ()|
Whatever you are writing, whether it be an essay, newspaper article or book it is generally rule of thumb that you know what the heck you are writing about. Do your homework on the subject, research it to make sure that you really do know what you are writing about. If you don't know the subject well it will reflect in your writing.
Another rule of thumb is don't try to impress the reader by using big, uncommonly used words which some of us have probably never even heard of anyway. There's nothing worse than having to read a book with a dictionary by your side, it's frustrating and off putting.
English is weird

The English language is weird;
It can be understood through tough, thorough thought though.
A Murder of Crows
Back in the Middle ages someone decided that a group of crows should be called a murder. What do crows have to do with murder, who knows for certain. Some people believe that they are a sign of death, while others see them a sign of luck. This makes for a macabre collective noun.
