Expector's Writing Challenge : A Weathered Old Lady

I used to watch the white haired old lady sitting on her rustic rocking chair with a vacant look on her face. Her weathered and wrinkled face looked so sad. Sometimes I noticed her gnarled hand would tremble ever so slightly. Other times, I noticed that she would grip the rocking chair as if her life depended on it. Once in a blue moon, she would break into a little…

The Way Through The Mystery

It's the end of November. Winter has already announced its presence in the air. Blankets are now needed at night, and it's difficult to leave the warmth of the blanket in the morning. 

My home is at the far corner of the city and my office is out of the city. After five or six minutes drive from my home towards my office, the road becomes narrow and bumpy. So it's difficult to sit up straight in the car. We bounce up and down on our seats. And everyday it feels like the bumpy road…

•THIS IS OUR PAST•

Hello, everyone. 

Today I was thinking about my past and about my childhood in particular. I remember so many things from that time and today I bought one. It was a tasty thing right from the age when I was 4-5 years old. And it caused the waterfall of my memories and I want you to show my past. 

When I was in my kindergarden, it was the USSR time so not so many things were available there but at the same time we were dreaming to get all those stuff I'm going to show you. So,…

Final Exam.

This is my very first post, and I hope that you'll read this (I'm sorry for grammatical errors)

I will be facing my final exam tomorrow, and it's so terrible because I have Math on the first day. I don't think it'll be easy as I thought because Math is hard if we don't understand it. While me, I don't understand the whole of it. Integral, Linear Programming, Matrix, etc. I keep thinking about how do I get a motivation to study when all I do…

Expector's Writing Challenge: Try to use adjectives before or after every noun

Are you ready for one more writing challenge? I hope so.

You could always add one or more adjectives before or after every noun to enrich the sentence. You usually do so for a colourful sentence or a vivid description.  Let's compare these two sentences:

-- A man in the village was sitting in a chair.

-- A white-haired old man in the peaceful village was sitting in a black wooden chair. 

It can be…

what should we do? (part-3)

Today, I am going to share one of my experiences with you. Then I just completed my S.S.C examination. That day one of cousins came to our place so my brother and I had a great day. After passing a busy and joyful day I felt tired. So, I said goodnight a bit early and went to my room to set up the mosquito net. But, when I was tucking the net, suddenly a flying insect (looked like a grasshopper but small in size and color was light ash-black) caught my…

oh my english

English is my second language; I have been learning English since primary school. During that time I thought that this language was not really important therefore I gave least effort to learn it. In test and exam I always got lower marks which represent my weakness in this language. If I had learned English at my best during that moment, I would be fluent in English now.…

Don’t Procrastinate

Snooze………  Alarm is ringing; you still want to snooze by pressing right side button of your mobile and sometimes you keep on doing like this and as a result you get late and try to finish your work in a hurry-scurry manner, and then have to think of excuses to tell your boss.  So, “Don’t Procrastinate”.  Waking up early in the morning is a good habit; not only it is good for health but also gives you decent time to do your daily chores satisfactorily before going to office or…
