Question:

How can I write with more creative expressions?

Answer:

There are many ways to make your work more interesting to read. The use of similes, descriptions, metaphors and idioms will give colour to your story. Instead of saying 'I'm anxious about going on stage.' Here is an alternative that will reel readers in: 'Beads of perspiration dotted my face as I pace around like a cat on hot tin roof. I can hear my heart beat palpitating in my ears, a steady increase in rhythm as each second goes by, as my time on stage creeps closer.'

Question:

1. I will be visiting my family in Canada on Christmas. 2. I will be visiting my family in Canada at Christmas. Which is the correct sentence?

Answer:

The correct answer is Number 2: I will be visiting my family in Canada at Christmas. The English preposition "on" is usually used for days of the week, dates, and holidays which falls on specific dates. Number 1 will be correct if it were to be "I will be visiting my family in Canada on Christmas Day". With a more specific day/date, "on" will be the appropriate preposition to use. "At" is normally used for the time of day and festive periods. In this case, because "Christmas" is a festive season that covers a span of three days and there aren't any specific days specified, number 2 will be the correct answer.
