Animals are sensible!!

Being belong to a farmer’s family I must understand animals and their behaviour, it is very simple if one concentrates on them.  Actually, I do not spend much time with animals but my mom and her friends always tell and teach me about their behaviour like when they get angry with us or furious by our wrong activities. They have their own ways of showing anger and we should understand them.

Milk selling is one the main sources of earning money. It is beneficial not only from…

Some things just happen...

Some things just happen. Life doesn't ask us, what we want because life actually doesn't care. What counts is our attitude and decissions we make. They are like a huge arrow, which shows us the direction. No matter if we choose easy or complicated way - eventually we end up somewhere. All the slaps and backstabs are without doubt painful but after all... going through the burning hell makes us…

Writing Challenge: A News Report

Hi bloggers and everyone who likes writing. :)

I’m sure all of you know what passive voice is. Passive voice can change the focus of interest by placing the object at the beginning of the sentence. Subjects are often omitted in the sentence as they are usually unimportant, unknown, or obvious.

Passive voice is commonly used in news report. Hence, for practicing the passive, I challenge you to write a news report. :)

Here is your task:…

Luci's Halloween Challenge: My Horror Story

I was in a dense forest on MyEC Island, somewhere in the world. There were so many people and I didn’t know them so well. However, it is they who accompanied me there in happiness and laughter for 3 years. I was so kind and beautiful (LOL *kidding) that many people liked me. But since that day, everything has changed.

One morning, my body was transformed into something scary. Some sharp small swords grew in my both hands. I may not realize that I hurt people around…
