The Meanings and Variations of “Mother”

 

The word ‘Mother’ derives from the Old English term modor, which is cognate with the Latin word mater and the Greek word meter. (From the Latin term, such words as maternal and maternity are derived.)

The term refers not only to a female parent…

Write when you really feel like writing

Yes, we've been trying to encourage you to write more and we do have reason to do so.

It takes a lot of time and effort to write skillfully or…

Onee's Poem Challenge: My Ode to Distillation

Well, I am laughing while typing these lines! To join such words like DISTILLATION, FLEXIBILITY and FREELOADER in one verse is not an easy task. But I like to solve insoluble problems. So, here is my verse. Sure, it is funny and is not good at all, but I like ad-lib, so there you go!

Why not to write about distillation,…

Onee's Dialogue Challenge: Meet A Stranger - At the graveyard.

She was an elderly woman in her early seventies. She was a very well maintained and beautiful woman, with eyes so blue, that people who looked at her, got the impression that she could see directly into their soul. Probably she could.



She had never been married, earthy men was too mundane for her ( LOL, okay I was laughing when I wrote that ).



Also today as her daily routine, she was sitting at the graveyard, a habit she had kept from her younger years. She liked the…

Everyday is a New day

Hi All,

Everyday is going to become a new day for us. None of us can predict how the day will be. It is not in our control.

Suppose we lost an opportunity yesterday, that may come tomorrow. Or you may get a better one.

So stop thinking about the unfulfilled past think about the brighter future tomorrow.

What is going to come tomorrow is purely based upon your thinking. Today if you are thinking good, you are going to get something good. If you are thinking bad,…

Make it a Regular Habit

It is 19 Jan. 17 today and I see only 71 (the number may increase when I am writing this blog) blogs posted. The decreasing number of blogs shows something. Maybe the bloggers have no interest in blogging or the passionate bloggers of EC have no time to write more blogs. Maybe the motivators are here to motivate the EC bloggers to write.

I would like to remember a constant…

4 Opportunities to Kick-start Your Career While Studying

Some people decide to use university to have fun, hang out and sample the different flavors that life has to offer. More power to them, I say. Others, however, decide to use it to more professional ends. They use it to kick start their career.

And that too I can understand. After all, there really is no better place to start out your career than a university. After university, you’ll have to deal with being seen as young and inexperienced. And that is something you can only change by…

Pay and Kill (Part 3- Officially Outlaw)

“You don’t tell what to do! I won’t take any orders now...” he said with his sarcastic devilish smile, while still holding firm the thin as blade knife against the leaders’ throat. “Red! Magenta! Pink! All of you get outta’ here now!!” he shouted almost in all corners of that hide-out. “Dark, my boy, you know you can do better than this, we’re family.” The junk leader said with the slightest beg and fear in his voice, but still confident. There is no perfect moment than now, Junk leader’s…

“Only You or None!”

 

It was winter, all the mountains around were covered with thick layer of snow fell last night and the light flakes of ice were still falling.  Far away there was a guest house on the high mountain, light from the lone window of the only occupied room was trying to give the sense of life in the area, so as the man lonely loitering on the…
