Question:

How do I edit my essay?

Inactive

Answer:

Sometimes it’s helpful to read the piece “backwards,” starting at the conclusion and working in reverse to see things differently during editing. And here are some questions that might be helpful: Is the thesis clear? Does each paragraph work to support the thesis? On a sentence level, are there any unnecessary words? Do the sentences vary in length and structure? Are there any words repeated too often? Any sources that need citation? Good luck!

Question:

I need a picture of a cheetah for my presentation. Where can I find a copyright-free image to use?

Answer:

Many of us would just go to Google Images and copy a picture. The problem with this practice is that many images are protected by copyright, and it’s hard to know which ones are safe to use. Try web sites like unsplash.com, pixabay.com, pexels.com, or ccsearch.creativecommons.org to find images that are free to use. Then be sure to attribute the photo’s source.

Question:

What are some correlations between literature and classical music?

Answer:

Literature and music are artistic representations of the human experience. They capture emotion, mood, and pathos. For instance, novels and symphonies both employ rhythm, patterns, and tempi to tell their stories. Some characters are as bombastic as trombones; others are dramatic divas, like violin soloists. Both authors and composers state their ideas on “paper.” Then an interpreter brings the work to life, with the added color of the reader’s/conductor’s context. Thus, authors such as Austen and Beethoven live on, resurrected, reimagined, and refreshed each time they are read or performed.
