I've read your Facebook updates... You'll be getting a dictionary this year.
We spoke with someone who knows.
It’s not that there is nothing shocking left to do with art. Only that the language capable of describing the shock won’t appear until after the slap. A red mark that I’ll wear happily across my face

A zine creating community.
We Make Zines is an online community for zine makers and zine readers.
A group for all the zinesters out there who are sick of all the whining and pointless arguing you get on some othere zine groups. If you're interested in arguing, stirring up crap or just being a jerk in general you can go somewhere else. There are literally millions of place on the internet where you can be as big a jerk as you want, let us have this one small corner where we can get along and talk zines or... whatever we want to talk about. I was gonna call this the "no pompous wankers zinesters list" or "the cool zinesters list" but I didn't like those titles, but that's basically what this list will be- a place for all the cool zinesters to hang out away from all the jerks.
The Word "Selfie" Is Oxford Dictionaries' 2013 Word Of The Year One of my many selfies The digital age is more influential than anyone could ever imagine. Don’t believe me, just ask the folks behind Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year.
Describli is a new community combining social networking, writing prompts, and friendly competition to make a revolution of writing awesomeness. Respond to writing prompts each day, and then watch your audience grow. The more people who rate your writing highly, the more it will get seen. You can reach new readers, promote your work, and have fun, all while improving your writing!
Sounds interesting and maybe a great idea... but, I can't find the actual community. So far they are asking for money and offereing to link on Facebook and Twitter.

Writers on Writing
We want you to write for us! The daily Facts & Arguments Essay is a great forum for you to share your own experiences, viewpoints and writing flair with other Globe readers. Whether you are young or old, female or male, newly arrived in Canada or deeply rooted here, we want to be inspired by your unique perspective.
So what makes a good Facts Essay?
A few things we look for are: an original voice; an unexpected view; an unfamiliar perspective; humour; vivid details that show us rather than tell us; anecdotes that illuminate a wider theme.
A successful Essay may be funny, surprising, touching or enlightening – or all of these. It may present a slice of life or a powerful experience that changed you in some way. It may be a meditation on something that matters to you. It goes beyond a rant, and it is deft in moving from the particular to the universal.
Above all, an Essay should be personal rather than political. It must be true, not fictional.

Average copywriters write average sentences. You, I'm guessing, don't want to be average. You want to be great. You believe you can be remarkable. Tha
Early last November, a few of my students and I attended a poetry reading given by Prof. Stephen Frech of Millikin University. I've heard Frech read a couple of other times and I adore his work. You can find some of his works ...

We all need one of these for our writing. Like being "Scared Straight".
Writer's Block. It sounds like a fearsome condition, a creative blockage. The end of invention. But what is it, really?
Good advice. I liked the last bit on revision. Sometimes it's just difficult.
Do you or have you ever been guilty of writing crappy content? I have but want to know how I learned to avoid the crappy content syndrome?
