Tips for today's Internet Op-ed Writer- Think about a particular topic and how it makes YOU feel, then immediately type it out. Having a rough draft or checking of spelling & grammar is illegal.Tips for today's Internet Op-ed Writer by MuttMix
- Researching a topic is unnecessary, since its impossible for Internet Op-ed writers to be wrong.
- Be contrarian as possible, because having an opposing opinion is more important than having an educated one.
-If someone is offended it's either because; A)they don't share your ethnicity/gender/sexual preference/location/STD and therefore aren't allowed to comment on your work or B) they don't understand "satire".
-Use gratuitous amounts of swearing to show how edgy, original, & rebellious you are.
-Remember to talk about truly traumatic experiences like someone calling you stupid in a chat-room or having to wait two minutes longer then usual for your coffee.
-Title your article about one subject, then proceed to write about something completely unrelated. For example, title your article "Baseball" and
Lazy Essay type PoemWhere are we headed?Lazy Essay type Poem by MuttMix
Today humanity is facing a series of choices.
Religious fundamentalism mired with Nationalism & backed by Oligarchy
A Pseudo-Social Democracy that keeps pushing itself towards a vague idea of Freedom
Or will we simply have to settle for a Brave New World?
Can a Generation that has better communication devices then ever before bring peace?
Or are we merely doomed to succumb to material wants & simple selfishness?
Does writing bad poetry answer these questions?
This ever happen to you?June decided to call her boyfriend.This ever happen to you? by MuttMix
Only to discover he wasn't home.
Then June decided to leave a message.
Only to discover her boyfriends answering machine was broke.
June decided to go look for her boyfriend.
Only to discover her car would not start.
June then decided to take the bus.
Only to discover she had no exact change.
June then decided to give up.
Only to get a text that read:
"Why didn't you call?"
MomentaryDream-like, rivers of silver and gold within the every corner of the room. Articulate decorations, heavy with luxury hanging from each corner and within all the furniture. Halls dressed in silver and light, moonlight faintly falling through the high windows brushing everything in them, surrounding with a halo everything. An atmosphere unlike any other, filled with people, familiar and unfamiliar alike; and yet strangely lonely and deserted.
A ballroom wearing rococo; filled with an endless loop of dancing guests. Gold, silver and a thousand coloured gems within every corner, and worn by every single guest. Laughter and happiness around, surrounding the redhead at the centre of it all. A waltz in the midst of a palace, couples all around; a grace and a strange serenity filling the halls. The redhead in the midst left a stranger, alone though surrounded by a hundred guests.
An image of the past, perchance; of cities long abandoned and left behind, surrounded by air permeated with new his

Writer's Tip: Writing Effective SentencesSentences—if the plot is the backbone of a story, then sentences are the muscles and tendons keeping it glued together. Unfortunately, writing solid sentences isn’t easy for everyone. As Human beings, we don’t speak the same way we write. Unless you do a lot of writing, you may have trouble putting together even the simplest of sentences. The last time you took a good look at a sentence and broke it down into its individual parts was probably around 3rd grade. Don’t worry—I’m here to help.DarlingMionette
There’s More Than One Type of Sentence
There are (roughly) four different types of sentences, and we’re going to get into each of the different types (with examples!).
Simple Sentences – This is a sentence in its truest form. A simple sentence is the statement of a single idea in a direct, clear way. Most simple sentences contain less than 20 words, but it is best if you keep your word count aver

How to stay MotivatedHow to stay Motivated.Robotpencil
I’m writing this article for the type of people who say that just can’t find motivation to:
Make a portfolio
Finish a painting
Work on their personal project
I got three tips I’m about to write, and it’s just advice and things that I found useful for myself. If you are capable to do any of these things you should definitely try them.
Fear. Get rid of it. If you are fearful of the outcome it will unmotivate you immediately. Just finish whatever it is and think about how you can improve after. If you can’t see what you need to improve ask someone else to tell you. There is always room to improve, and if you go into a critique with an open mind you will grow exponentially.
Think of it like this. If you were running one lap, and half way through you stopped because you were afraid you were going to throw up or pass out, you will never really know how fast you can run that lap. You didn’t push yours
At Your Side -- The Battle of the Five Armies SongDo not fear, my lovex-Kaelara-x
As arrows rain down from above
I will be your shield
When enemies refuse to yield
As the darkness closes in
I will be there
Don't give in
Dodging scarlet swords
Tears rolling from the grief of war
Seeing allies fall
I try to reach your desperate call
When everything but fear has died
I will stand close
At your side
At the sound of horns
My fears of losing you reborn
When all hope is lost
Nothing lessens the painful cost
As blood puddles at our feet
I'll lie with you
As we sleep
