The Physick Book of Deliverance Dane By Katherine Howe
"Okay, so we’ve all heard of the Salem Witch Trials, right? Everyone knows that in 1692 there was a witch panic in Salem, Massachusetts where about twenty or so innocent people were hanged. These people, obviously were going to be hanged for being considered a witch. Katherine Howe’s question was, could there have been any actual witches hanged during this time. I know the question is silly, but after reading her book, it makes me almost believe that actual witches were hanged.
Now, lets fast forward to the year 1991 in Cambridge Massachusetts. I know, these two time periods are centuries apart, but Katherine Howe magically puts them together. So, let’s meet Harvard Graduate student, Connie Goodwin, her specialty is in colonial history. She has been advanced to candicy and is writing her doctoral dissertation..."

Dreamland By: Sarah Dessen
"Have you ever loved someone so much it hurt? Caitlin O’Karen can tell you all about it. Ever since she met Rogerson there was something compelling, different, and something her sister, Cass, had never done.
Cass ran away on Caitlin’s birthday and her mom was constantly worried about her. Caitlin always felt as though she lived in her sister’s shadow. So, for her Junior year of high school, now that Cass was gone, she wanted to do everything she could to be different from Cass. She even joined the Cheer leading team with her friend, Rina. Then, she met Rogerson. As I stated above, he was the kind of guy Cass had never dated just by looking at him..."

Land of a Hundred Wonders By Lesley Kagen
"What would you do if you were in a car accident where both of your parents died and you banged your head very badly? Gibby McGraw of Cray Ridge, Kentucky wants to be a reporter, it’s one of the few things she remembers doing after her accident. The only problem is, Gibby is NQR, or Not Quite Right by her Grampa’s standards. She forgets everything, and doesn’t know what is appropriate or not.
She could just be saying, “Hi” to someone at the Top O’ the Mornin’ Diner where she works with her Grampa, and then call them a name. A name that if it was said on TV would have to be bleeped out. Being so forgetful, Gibby forgets where she is and what she is doing. Gibby’s Grampa takes care of her."

Symptoms of Sleep Paralysis are: According to Stanford University, one of the symptoms of sleep paralysis consist of not being able to move your body
when you are sleeping or when waking up. Another thing you might notice if you have sleep paralysis is that you feel as though someone is choking you and you are unable to move and try to stop them. Or the person is lying on top of you so you cannot move. You struggle but nothing happens the person holding you down just gets stronger. Well, that’s how I feel when I get sleep paralysis.

Because of career training and work experience, I feel more comfortable and qualified to write about relationships and life-coaching type articles. Nevertheless, some of my most successful articles published on Triond are not those that address what makes life easier, but what makes living easier in the home.
These first four (below) hit a spot on the internet. I think what makes the series so popular is not just the title, but the fact that they describe hilarious scenarios. They outline cheap, useful and unknown uses for various household items, but as a change from the norm where advice and tips are generally painstakingly listed, this amusing but handy series show someone walking around the home with a jar of Vaseline or salt, a bottle of baby oil, and a pack of toothpicks taking care of the many tasks around the house that particular item could be used for - all in one go. The articles in the series are:
Top Ten (Legal) Things to do if you Find Yourself Holding a Jar of Vaseline
Top Ten (Legal) Things to do if you Find Yourself Holding a Jar of Salt
Top Ten (Legal) Things to do if you Find Yourself Left Holding a Bottle of baby oil
Top Ten (Legal) Things to do if you Find Yourself Holding a Pack of toothpicks
As you can see, the titles are very catchy indeed, and do describe perfectly what the articles are all about.
On a lesser note, I published How To Clean Pet Feces, Yucky Spills and Other Mucky Things. This has always performed well, but the views came in constant dribbles rather than a mighty force of a Caribbean wave. I suppose this shows that more concise pieces do better than just general household-tips ones.
It was then I realised that ‘Why duct tape Became the Love of My Life’ had to be written. I’ve always had a good selection of duct tape at home because I think out of everything else, this item has been most useful to me through the years.
What’s your favourite ultra useful household item?

Learning about the different religions gives you more insight into their followers every day life. Did you know that in Hinduism that if you were bad in one life, in your next you will stricken with poverty? Like I said, different. But that is how the religion teaches morals in Hinduism- the better you are in one life, in the next life you will a better off person. I think that it is interesting.
The paper I wrote on the this topic is fairly long and informative. It goes through just an overview of each of these religions with a comparing and contrasting section of them. I hope you enjoy it!

I've often shared my passion for writing with friends and family. Your passion may lie in other areas. Perhaps you have a secret yen to market one of your talents. In this article I share instructions on creating your own business card. I provide a step by step guide and places to go to to download templates or order online. I've created a pretty generic business card, but it would be just as simple to add a background, or design. Because I am almost out of ink I kept it pretty simple:
Handing out a card is going to be so much simpler than standing in the middle of a store searching for scrap paper and a pen.
I love writing and want to share the love. My friends on this blog, and I have found a wonderful outlet where we get paid for doing what we love. What do you love? I'd love to see what you can come up with.
Take care & G♥d bless!

Many years ago a young man decided that he wanted to be a writer but he wasn’t sure what kind of stuff he really wanted to write. He just wanted to be totally dynamic and cover everything in his work.
So, he studied and wrote and wrote some more trying to perfect his art. This went on for many years. When asked what he really wanted to achieve as a writer he often repeated that he wanted to write things that everyone in the world would read and words that people would react to in a really emotional way.
He just wanted his words to affect them deep down, and make them scream, and howl in pain and deep emotion.
After struggling as a writer and having to take other jobs to get by, he found what he really wanted.
He now works for Microsoft as an error message writer.

I find reading a joy, whether it is an article or a book, and always carry reading materials with me wherever I go. Yes, it might also make me look smart, but really, I don’t want to waste my time doing nothing.
Reading can spark my own thoughts of what I want to write about. Sometimes, a word, an image, or a title inspires the creativity in me. It is advised that we should write what we know.

I’ve created quite a number of writing-for-web tutorials which are scattered about on the internet. I thought it would be a useful to make them all accessible in one place. Here’s a list of some really helpful ones, designed for writers desiring to establish a platform of contacts and fans in the writing world of the web - a thriving and progressive community.
One of the requirements of modern agents and publishers, is for the new writers they take on to already have something called a ‘platform.’ What better way to establish one, than to use the internet to connect with potential fans from all over the world.
I created this first set of tutorials as a reference point for both writers seeking to better their use of the written English, and also for speakers of foreign languages learning to write English correctly.
The Art of written English
Written English Part 1: The apostrophe
Written English Part 2: The Comma and the Full Stop
Part 3: Semi colon and hyphen
Part 4: the dash, question mark and exclamation mark
Part 5: the inverted commas, brackets and capitalization
This second set of articles deals with getting your online content in shape. It discusses the value of adding friends to your network, and the art of sharp writing which attracts readers and keeps them hooked on your work. Issues of getting the right content to the right people, and how to keep topped-up on a good supply of ideas, are also tackled.
Skill and technique are examined, and several ways in which we can become the sought-after web writer that everyone wants to read. This is a definitive writing series for anyone serious about building a career in online writing.
How to make your online content earn you money and recognition
Part one - Why add friends
Part two - How to keep people reading your work
Part three - How to keep the ideas coming
Part four - Developing skill and technique
Part five - Setting out your article for internet skimming

If you ask any American what language they speak in their country, in most cases the reply will be that it's English. However, American English sometimes has a completely different vocabulary to British English.
Many Americanisms have entered the language on this side of the Atlantic, but they are a long way from being established. It's quite strange how some Americanisms have been accepted but others have completely failed to make any impression on British English.
On our side of the pond we say: apartment, ball park, buddy, cab and cookie. However, we don't say: pacifier, realtor, popsicle, duplex and gurney. (A British English spell checker objects to these words.)
The way words are used is also different sometimes. For example if you ask an American how they are, you will get the answer, 'I'm good!' In English English we say, 'I'm well.'
Among the young in Britain, there are those who regard American English as 'cool', but their use of this alien (to us Brits) tongue causes annoyance amongst those who don't.
For more information on this and examples of how British English varies from region to region, you might find these articles useful.
