Write About - Challenge: Write about peeling a potato for at least 3 paragraphs. I felt the potato in my hands. The skin was smooth, with little dimples where the eyes were. It was about the size of a large orange, with light brownish skin mostly covered by dirt and muck. It fit wonderfully in my hand. I reached for the faucet, hearing the water swish out like a waterfall falling from a snaky silver mountain. I pushed the potato under the stream of water and watched as the mud came off in flakes and rivers.

A Brief History of National Grammar Day National Grammar Day, which is celebrated on March 4, was established in 2008 by Martha Brockenbrough, the author of Things That Make Us [Sic] and founder of the Society for the Promotion of Good Grammar (SPOGG). Former President George W. Bush sent a letter commemorating the day in its inaugural year. In an interview with Grammarly last year, Martha explained that she founded the day because she wanted to help her students with their grammar in a lively and positive way. As the National Grammar Day website states, “Language is something to be celebrated, and March 4 is the perfect day to do it. It’s not only a date, it’s an imperative: March forth on March 4 to speak well, write well, and help others do the same!”

Ten Tips for Fiction Writers - the important things every novelist should know about writing stories In no particular order: #1) Write what you know More of a mantra than a tip. You'll have heard it before - but it's not about the mantra, it's about the interpretation. SVOMPT - word order in English SVOMPT rule is one of the most important rules in English. If students learn to follow this rule, their English will improve dramatically, and they will be understood. Once a student knows some words and follows the SVOMPT rule, we can say that he/she can speak English. I love Darren Crown’s explanation of the origin of the SVOMPT word order. In his humorous book “Angličtina na rovinu” he writes that English was first used by a primitive tribe whose members did not want to use their brain too much and thus they created a word order which is always the same – Subject, Verb, Object, adverbs of Manner, adverbs of Place and adverbs of Time. So let´s stop looking for some complicated explanations and let´s think like the primitive barbarians and stick with the SVOMPT word order.
