  • Is my villain a bad idea? I'm extremely skeptical about it and I need advice.?

    Best answer: You're right to be sceptical. Not because this character is necessarily implausible, but because it would take huge writing talent and skill to convey that history and personality in a way that's convincing to the reader but not so distressing and repellent that they just don't want to read about him.... show more

You're setting yourself a really hard task here.

  • What's another word I can use?

    This was a first for me. Two beautiful women baring their fangs and showing their claws… over me. I didn’t like it. What word could I use instead of "showing."

  • Was homeschooling legal in the UK in 1965?

    Best answer: Yes it was legal. Less commonplace than it is now, but some still did it. Home education has always been common among the country's elite.

    Best answer: Yes it was legal. Less commonplace than it is now, but some still did it.

    Home education has always been common among the country's elite. The Royal Family have
    all in the past been educated at home, including the current Queen, though more recently
    royalty have attended various public schools.
    In the UK home education as a mass movement began in the late 1970s and began to rise in
    numbers from the mid 1980s.

    The law was/is that children must be educated. It does not say that it HAS to be in a school.

  • PLEASE READ AND GIVE FEEDBACK?

    *CREATIVE WRITING PIECE* The hardest part of this is the pretending.

    *CREATIVE WRITING PIECE* The hardest part of this is the pretending. Sitting in class with tears welling up in my eyes, but not letting them fall. “Are you alright?” Ask my friends, teachers, and family. “I’m fine”. They believe me. They think I have a perfect life, and that I have nothing to worry about, but they’re so oblivious. My fake smile that doesn’t quite reach my eyes covers up all my emotions. I’m just so tired of pretending. My parents barely glance up as I walk in from school, and don’t notice my tear stricken face. I reach my bedroom, and as I close the door my vision goes blurry from the tears that I finally release. I’ve had enough. I look in the mirror and hate the thing that stares back at me, hate everything about who I am. As I open up the cuts in my body just one more time, a strange sense of calm washes over me. The familiar sensation of the blade running across my skin has become my escape from the world, and brings with it not pain, but euphoria. The blood that flows like a river from my body and reminds me that I am alive. But I’m sick of being reminded of what I don’t want. So I cut a little deeper, and then deeper again. *COULDN'T FIT THE LAST HALF IN*

For her real name, you need to think about her parents - their ethnicity, personalities, tastes, and hopes for their child's future. That's where people's... show more

This lead me to wonder WHY nobody ever just extracted their memories for judges to see so they could prove their truths!! Is it just way more complicated than that??

    Best answer: Are all parties "born in the USA"? and don't follow (or don't want to follow) ancestral customs?

    You probably know that Puerto Ricans and Cubans are not alike. Neither are Chinese and Japanese. They have different histories, different customs and the two Asian nations have different languages.

    Which two peoples you pick is up to you.

    I suggest that you research each country via the Internet, and/or through books. As and overview of "[Country] -- Social life and customs" (Library of Congress subject heading) Travel guides usually provide the most information in brief in one place. Wikipedia might have correct and useful information too if it used good sources.

  • I'm writing about magic, and there are 2 ways to get powers: Being born with them, and using spellbooks. Has my book idea been used?

    Best answer: I don't think that idea has been used before. It certainly hasn't been in any of the books I've read. Even if it has, that doesn't mean your book isn't original, isn't your own. Everyone's writing is unique, even if premises are similar.

    Good luck!
    Isabelle.
