Creative Writing: Year Long Period Of Solitary Confinement And What I

Creative Writing: Year Long Period Of Solitary Confinement And What I
During my assignment of a one year long period of solitary confinement
on Antarctica the three things that I would bring with me would be: a computer
equipped with internet access and teleconferencing capabilities; my ski
equipment including my climbing gear; and a snowmobile that is run by
electricity because of a lack of Mobil stations at the South Pole. The computer,
ski equipment, and snowmobile would allow me to endure and make the best of a
year long period that would be pure Hell without these three things.

Four Useful Lies About Writing

Four Useful Lies About Writing
Four Useful Lies About Writing
Most writing “experts” favor a particular way of looking at plot, and will adhere to it for years or an entire career. That’s all well and good, but its important to realize that any way of modeling story is just that&ndasha model, not the depths and living essence of story itself.

Problems arise when young (or experienced!) writers mistake a simplified structure for some deep and eternal truth. It’s much better to examine several structures, see what their strengths and weaknesses are, and try to glimpse the truth they are trying to convey.

The actual “truth” of story is beyond any structure, but they all point in the same direction, toward that misty, hidden metaphorical mountain all storytellers have been climbing since the beginning of time. As long as we don’t mistake the finger for the mountain, the structures can be quite useful indeed.

The worst story model that is at all useful might be” “It has a beginning, middle, and an end.” Well, yes, but so does a piece of string.

Writing information products (eBooks) is one of the most popular ways of starting an online business.

Why? Because the subject range is unlimited as is the angle or perspective you can bring to the subject. Plus, it costs nothing except your time to create it.

But it is not always trouble-free. How do you get started and how do you manage if you have never written a book before?

First, and most important - write about something you know. This allows you to keep the book flowing, give credibility and shows your readers you have some insight on the subject - and hence something to offer they may not have heard before.

Next, the hardest part of writing is - the first sentence. When you look at the whole project, it seems like an impossible task. You have to break it down into manageable tasks.

Wildlife Preservation in Thinking Like a Mountain

Wildlife Preservation in Thinking Like a Mountain
In Thinking Like a Mountain, the author, Aldo Leopold, writes of the importance of wildlife preservation through examples of the symbiotic relationship of animals and plant-life with a mountain. He asks the reader to perceive the processes of a mountainous environment in an unusual way. Aldo Leopold wants the reader to ?think? like a mountain instead of thinking of only the immediate, or as the hunter did. Taking away one feature of an ecosystem may eventually destroy everything else that that environment is composed of. Nature and wildness is essential for the well being of life on this earth.
The excerpt begins by telling of the echoing sound of a wolf?s cry. Every creature has a different perception of the meaning of that howl, while the mountain has a different view as well. A deer might be alarmed by it and flee. A hunter may become more alert and trigger-happy. All the while, it?s a comfortably soothing sound for the mountain.
