Spring Break

The spring break is almost arrived. Everybody needs a break after hard work term of school. I would like to introduce some ideas -what about to practice your own first-person writing or try to write the unthinkable. Sometimes, a word and an expression stocks in your head, and it just ask for collaboration in the form of writing poetry to tell the inspirational story. In then, who knows, from a real chaos to stories of real-life situations develop a piece of writing art by simply exploring the use of memory from your past, present situations (encounters, speculations, etc.)facts, autobiography or biographies of other people.

Nowadays, we are living in a fast time, but things such as parenting, traveling, hobbies in history, sports, health and nutrition, pop culture, humor and music are not a short-time projects, more like a long-time goals, a life style and life commitment.

Or, please finish the book or books you start and did not have time to finish. Read a book!
