Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?
Specific Imagery: What Makes a Poem Good?
So what makes a poem good?
According to Samuel Taylor Coleridge (please, never just call him Sam) the definition of poetry is "the best words in their best order".
Fine. But what exactly does that mean?
It means that good poetry is about much more than just matching rhythm and rhyme. What elevates any poem above its peers is the specific choice of words to match the poet's intent.
Say what now?
Think of it this way: our chosen words are our color palette, and the way we combine them equates to brush strokes and blending. Strong words equal bold hues, while overused and cliché terms are a lot like faded watercolors. You want your hard work to stand out, not blend in, right?
Of course I do!
Then my biggest piece of advice is this: choose your words.
What do you mean? I always choose my words; I'm a writer, after all!
What I mean is, do your best to choose the most appro

4 Tips for Niche Writers
4 Tips for Niche Writers
Anybody Can Write a Novel
Chapter 9 “Types of Writers” – Section 10 “Niche Writers”
With Links to Supplementary Material
We all prefer certain genres of writing and storytelling. For some writers, however, this preference goes beyond mere interest and becomes a specialty, a sole interest, and a experience that makes the writer an authority in the subject. The only problem with this is that niche writers often become repetitive and develop their works in a way that makes readers feel like reading one work by the author is enough to get a feel for everything they've written. Today, I'm going to give some tips for making your niche into something dynamic that keeps the interest of your readers.
Tip 1: Create foundations and rise from them.
Though I do not claim to already be any sort of top-tier ex

Banning Dog Breeds Is Wrong
The unjustful discrimination of dog breeds- Not just Pit bulls(This is the real title of my article)
I have never heard of this or looked into it much, until now. It should be put out there, people need to know about this if they do not. Pit bulls are not the only ones in this concern. In the US, 75 and a possible increase of breeds of dogs are being labeled with bad raps and considered dangerous in many states. Some breeds are not allowed at all in certain states/cities, they are banned completely. If you own a dog, find out about the restrictions for the dog and before moving to any new town or city, check with the city hall. The infamous list below has been making it's way through the internet, convincing gullible owners that it's true.. well, not all of it.
    List of breeds banned/restricted:(#- repeated or fake breeds)
    1. AIREDALE TERRIER
    2. AKBASH
    3. AKITA
