A boy in my class
Attracts my eyes as he smiled at me
His warm face warms up my heart
For the first time ever I feel love
Love as it is the spring in my heart
I smiled back at him
We chatted for a while
I love him for we have similarities
He makes my heart go blossoming
I am Love Sick
Love as I am contagious
A dangerous virus that makes you go nuts
A strong feeling embraced
I am Love Sick
Love as if there's no tomorrow
Love that is to good to be true
A feeling that makes you longing
I draw hearts everyday
Who doesn't even know I love you
Who doesn't even care about it
Who made me draw silly hearts
Who doesn't even know I drew this for you
Who doesn't even notice...
Who won't even notice me!
Who's near me but feels so far away...
I am Love Sick
But you can call me Envy
I am Love Sick
But you can call me Lust
I sing songs about you
You, who is near
Why are you so far away?
There's a distance between us
This longing obsession
I am Love Sick
A strong feeling that kills

As an Earth Pony Doge is a naturally tall and muscular pony, as those who use their hooves for even the slightest task are. In spite of his demanding job as Ponyville's Doctor and Coroner he is not in bad shape; rather his physical condition is the same as any other Earth Pony of his age - strong, muscular, broad and tall. Strength, after all, is what sets the Earthen race apart from the Winged ones, Horned race, or those that have the advantages of both. He manages to stay in such fine shape through regularly galloping through the Everfree Forest - he does not share the same fear of this pl

Chapter 4 “Plot Points” – Section 2 “The Inciting Incident”
With Links to Supplementary Material
Once you have completed your Prologue/Beginning, your next plot-point will be the Inciting Incident. This is the point at which your protagonist's life or world are forever changed—pushing them to some sort of reaction. This will be Chapter 1 of your novel (unless you prefer to use your prologue as your first chapter, in which case this should be Chapter 2).
Step 1: Make sure that the Inciting Incident is your first chapter.

So god damn cold in here.
It's been thirteen days since my fourteenth birthday. Fourteen; the legal working age here in Vermont. My dad always promised me that once I turned fourteen he'd teach me about working in his "The Family's" butchery. I wasn't completely sure whether or not I was excited about working there, but 'luckily' my dad knew about my future better than I did. It's weird to have your whole life planned out before you without your consent. Good bye goals. Good bye dreams. Good bye ambitions. Hello staying with my family for my whole life. Hello probably never leaving the country. And, hello depression. Well, that could very well be changed now.
I woke up greeting the end of my life. I made oatmeal and a bagel for breakfast, carefully abstaining from the meat dad was cooking.

Melodrama, strictly defined, means a “song drama,” of the French tradition. The tradition of this story was characterized by over-the-top emotions, to the point that the character's emotions were unintentionally funny, or ridiculous. Melodrama in modern literature, is a term used for when the emotions of your characters are absurd, petty, beyond control, and seem to overshadow the story; and today I'm going to talk about overcoming the melodrama in your story. Please note that this is something to be considered in the editing process, not in the first draft. There will be melodrama—but don't worry about it until you have a whole story down on paper or digital ink.
Step 1: Identify the melodrama in your story.
If you have written a first draft with a good number of characters with different wants and desires, there WILL be melodrama. And so your first step will go to every scene where there are emotional flares—of love,
The Imperfection of Style 1. IntroductionThe Imperfection of Style5 years ago in Academic Essays More Like This
When you sit down to read a piece written by Baudelaire you do not expect Dickinson sentimentality, nor a Shakespearean wit or Poe's possessiveness with phonetically eeriness. You do expect a Baudelaire experience. But what is a Baudelaire experience? What makes Baudelaire a Baudelaire in comparison with Poe - is it the tonality, details, sentiment, or maybe the vocabulary, sentence construct or themes; Might it be the concepts, or maybe a certain point of view or an angle? Can you create your own style by analytical and critical thinking, learning the hypothetical curve and scale of those degrees, or by comparing different styles and reaching a sort of virginity in style, that which is uniquely you. Who is that which you describe through your style if not a human being, the imperfect creature of them all, and can we, by describing the imperfect, reach perfection?

For my thoughts do not sleep
but suffer to the darkness
that envelopes it.
And soon enough,
the realisation strikes,
you have no purpose -
all your dreams lost, absent.
The silence, so very silent
except for your thoughts
that just wont give you a break;
your nose for making those
constant sniffing sounds;
and the almost non-existent
sound of those dry tears
leaking ever so gently.
The night hides all,

Welcome to your conscience.
You may find some substance
in abject resistance.
Welcome to the planet.
Welcome to your summit.
You may find some merit
to throw down the gauntlet.
I know how you feel-
this emotive rawness;
I think we've all been there
in our self-awareness.
Then I dared myself to

Welcome to the world.
Welcome to the old lies.
Love is a commercial
wrapped up in a disguise.
Love is a chemical
you need to reproduce.
Love is a medical
condition I must beat.
over my own heartbeat-
a dollar for a touch
and a dime for some heat.
Then I dared myself to
love like never before...
And ever since,
words have failed
Because the pure and true
of what I never knew
seemed extremely askew
to my old worldview-
forgives every heartbreak;
is never give and take.

PLEASE NOTE! This guide is going under the assumption that you are making an Earth/Human-like planet, if you're going to do something drastically different DON'T BE ALARMED, many pieces of this guide will still apply but just know where your world would differ from the "standard" set.
Remember, when you know the rules, you will also know how to break them. The point of this guide is not to copy the world history of our own lives but to create a new history unique to the setting which you create BASED on the trends our own species has experienced.

Of Birds and Wings.Mr. Chuges was a man that didn't like going astray--he had never strayed from the normality of life and would never plan to, that's for sure. He was a man who would rather expect what would follow to having to deal with surprises and turbulances. Mundane prosaism was enough for him to be satisfied. His appearance gave out that much; mahogany, dull eyes which reflected no light, no life, looked through a pair of perfectly-squared, thick glasses. His lips were usually set on a hard line, their corners never lifting up to even fake a smile. A short, pointed beard covered the tip of his chin, giving him an austere look that made his students flinch in fear. Being wrinkled, his face was the proof he had completed at least fifty years of his life, even though none of them had been eventful. Whenever he spoke, his voice indicated no feeling, no emotion. To one, it sounded like it was emanating from a deep, hollow cell as he narrated today's Latin Lesson. He was lifeless.

The sun was bright overhead, the sky a clear blue with a few clouds floating merrily in the soft breeze. They day echoed springtime with bunnies and ducklings and pretty flowers. Not that anyone ever took notice of these things anymore. Charlie hardly glanced at the day’s serenity as she raced across the downtown streets; her feet slamming against the asphalt in time with the pounding of her heart. Her lungs ached as she gulped in each breath and then clamped her mouth shut in attempts not to scream out through pain and fear.
Charlie had to stop. Her side was splitting, her lungs were raw, and she was too close to tears to keep up the pace. She quickly rounded a corner and side-stepped into the closest building. The glass crackled under her feet as she tiptoed through a smashed front window. The building must have been a gym at some point: there were old treadmills, cycling machines, and weights set up in almo

The thick familiar haze of hospital atmosphere is suffocating, the plastic tinge paired with the scent of medicine and pumping machines doing little to give him breathing room.
