Lucinka's Halloween Challenge: My Horror Story

Juggernaut

In the middle of the night I woke up lying on the path in the dark forest. Suddenly I heard the steps coming - almost running to me. But I could not see him clear. Just two X-ray eyes on the background of the dark silhouette. Somebody was approaching me. My heart beat increased and fear took control of me. In a while it all stopped and I could finally see, who was in front of me.…

Between Night and Day.

Between Night and Day.



When the sun goes down for sleeping,

says "Goodbye, Day" with colorful light.

The sky looks as if it is bleeding,

before it kisses the dark of the night.…

What Does The Future Hold For Translation Productivity Technology?

Being a professional translator in the 21st century has become a double-edged sword. On one side, you have a profession that you know and love, offering you a secure income when everything else failed to do it for you.

With that said, what does the future hold for translators and…

Luci' Halloween Challenge: Ghost in my house

This is a true story and I have witnesses who will assure you that this really happened at the house. It happened with my younger sister. We were in our teen years and summer vacations were going. During those days our state was struggling with power crisis and almost every night power was cut for 8-12 hours, yes that is almost all night. 

As I said it happened with my sister, she was quite a tom boy and always tried to prove she never fears with anything. So we have a big 2 story…

Streetwear or Stylish Wear? What is in Fashion this Halloween?

Wearing a witch’s costume and high-heeled knee-long boots these days has reminded me of my favorite comfortable clothing I prefer to all others. This style won most of young hearts long ago but now it is about to become one of the most popular among people of any age.…

English Expression: #10: As Dead as a Doornail

Trick or treat! Halloween is coming and what an appropriate time to share with you an English expression that something related to the dead.

The expression ‘as dead as a doornail’ simply means something is very dead or totally dead. It’s obvious that it’s not moving. According to BBC Learning English, this expression was commonly used during Shakespeare’s days. Other notable writers such as Charles Dickens included…

''Nowadays everybody wants to be different so why not a witch!, and to be honest watching  scared people and  listening to them scream every now and then  is rather boring,'' Natalia was thinking in this way last night while she was resting on a tall Palm tree after having her dinner.

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…

To Luci's Halloween Challenge: My Horror Story

My Halloween nightmare



I was in a sound sleep when someone suddenly opened my bedroom's door. It was very dark, almost midnight. I opened my eyes. At first, I couldn't see anything. My eyes weren't accustomed to the darkness. The only things I could see: two red points on my white bedsheet.



It was creepy because I did not know what would happen.…
