I did not
a journalist. I felt limited, fearing
that I wouldn't be
motivated to write anything new or
interesting. Just Bad luck of
getting into the
her choice. One Very Unlikely Day The best part of the day, though, is when your art comes around the corner, waiting to take your ideas and form them into beauty. As Oscar Wilde once said, “The artist is the creator of beautiful things.” Art is a goddess, changing from a bodiless melody to a book of hidden meanings. This goddess lives in each of us, waiting for that ember to spark, and it is her job to ignite the flame. We have our individual styles, passions, and talents, but that doesn't mean that we, the student artists, are each doing something different from the next department. A Day Out of A Billion: Paragraph Four We are all creating art, practicing the basics and exploring the universe of artistic possibilities. Whether you’re in music, dance, visual arts, theater, or creative writing, all of us are doing something that we love, and are willing to do for 90 minutes or more daily. Our art is our muse, our influence, and has become part of us. She waits for you in her corner. She kidnaps you into wonderland and has you begging for more than the tour. Luckily, we return to her with an open heart, and sync into harmonious work pace. Art is a good way to end, start, or transition your day at school. A Day Out of A Billion:
Paragraph 4 What Drives the World? Passion Unity Communication Money Power Music Determination THE EXPLORATION: Freelancing You know how some people say you can travel through writing? I wanted to see what personally can be found inspirational and write about it. What is writing driven by inspiration and how can it be different from writing something you love? THE DISTRIBUTION: The Inspiration Page Higher then the Present: The Future Fiction and Poetry Journalism? I know that people sometimes get stuck when they are writing, so I wanted to create a page that people could explore and have motivation to do something. There's so many places, objects, people that one can stumble upon...and sometimes its that one memory you never forget. It was more of a personal experiment to see what would happen. Inspiration?

Blakes Lee Child In reaffirming the greatness of our nation, we understand that greatness is never a given. It must be earned. Our journey has never been one of short-cuts or settling for less. It has not been the path for the faint-hearted - for those who prefer leisure over work, or seek only the pleasures of riches and fame. Rather, it has been the risk-takers, the doers, the makers of things - some celebrated but more often men and women obscure in their labor, who have carried us up the long, rugged path towards prosperity and freedom.
For us, they packed up their few worldly possessions and traveled across oceans in search of a new life.
For us, they toiled in sweatshops and settled the West; endured the lash of the whip and plowed the hard earth.
For us, they fought and died, in places like Concord and Gettysburg; Normandy and Khe Sahn.
Time and again these men and women struggled and sacrificed and worked till their hands were raw so that we might live a better life. They saw America as bigger than the sum of our individual ambitions; greater than all the differences of birth or wealth or faction.
This is the journey we continue today. We remain the most prosperous, powerful nation on Earth. Our workers are no less productive than when this crisis began. Our minds are no less inventive, our goods and services no less needed than they were last week or last month or last year. Our capacity remains undiminished. But our time of standing pat, of protecting narrow interests and putting off unpleasant decisions - that time has surely passed. Starting today, we must pick ourselves up, dust ourselves off, and begin again the work of remaking America. Excerpt From Obama Inaugural Address
20th January 2009 "So writers are taught to focus on ingredients and their combination. They’re told they should create attractive, sympathetic characters, so that readers will care about them deeply, and then to plunge those characters into situations of continuing peril, the descent into which is the mixing and stirring, and the duration and horrors of which are the timing and temperature.
But it’s really much simpler than that. “How do you bake a cake?” has the wrong structure. It’s too indirect. The right structure and the right question is: “How do you make your family hungry?”
And the answer is: You make them wait four hours for dinner.
As novelists, we should ask or imply a question at the beginning of the story, and then we should delay the answer. (Which is what I did here, and you’re still reading, right?)" Excerpt from A Simple Way to
Create Suspense The Power of Music When writing I would often listen to music without words, and it helped me to keep writing. Sometimes I became stuck so I would close my eyes and listened. This help me create a overall theme which motivated me to finish the piece. Flowing Ideas Coop Voices Academic

What is going on? Whenever I write a piece, I want the reader to connect
with it. I use imagery as a hook to lure the reader in.
What I want is to guide the reader
and keep them intrigue. In this this
type of writing. Imagery helps people
places the sometimes impossible places or issues that one talks about. Can you feel the conflict? Do you see where
I'm coming from? My voice seeps
through the pages... Tone is like music; it flows and affects the reader as they dive deeper into the piece. It is important to provoke pathos for the reader. "The way I speak is the way I think, and the words I use are the words that are me." DON'T ARGUE WITH ME!!! p
