I have noticed that I get stuck sometimes when writing. More often than not, I only get stuck when I have a pressuring deadline on my shoulders. What would you do if you are in this position?
Firstly, I would take a breather. Time is of the essence, and to write a good piece you need to be in a good mindset. I would do something relaxing for 5-10 minutes. Then I would go back and free-write for 2 minutes to get my creative juices flowing. After sparking a connection in my mind, I would go back to the assignment and write first, edit later. 30 minutes of writing equates to 3 minutes of break time. Hope this helps!
I have trouble concentrating on studying. I have tried everything from background noise to silence, to noise-canceling headphones. What do I do now?
I have realized over the years of being a student myself, chewing gum or having a mint helps my mind focus. Another tactic that I have to combat the struggle of studying would be time it. I study for 25 minutes and take a five-minute break. It is essential to let your mind relax to better absorb information.
In the poem written by William Carlos William, "The Red Wheelbarrow", why does he not use punctuation throughout the poem?
In the poem "The Red Wheelbarrow", the lack of punctuation exemplifies how Williams' is trying to convey that the most beautiful things in life are the simplest. The lack of grammar and punctuation allows him to gracefully paint the picture of the wheelbarrow with no interruptions.
