Calling All Students of the Bible………
I guess everyone knows Delilah (you know, the “whiner”?)Well, I’ve written a short description of her and her story, with some deliberate misconceptions and other mistakes. Can you find them?It’ll be too easy if I tell you how many there are; all I’ll say is that there are more than…
Delilah, of the land of Gaza, was a Philistine woman whose story is found in the Book of Judges. She was the wife of Samson, an Israelite judge who was very strong.- She was not his wife, she was a whore.The Philistines wanted to capture Samson, and realizing the romantic power Delilah had over him, some axis lords asked her to help them. They reminded her of her duty to the nation as a citizen; she needed to keep her country from being destroyed.- no I think they just forced her to do it under threat & perhaps payment. No patriotism here… also “axis lords” huh?She accepted, and after the whining to him and him misleading her five times, he finally told her the truth about his source of strength.- I think it was only 3 times that he misled her. And she wasn’t whining but nagging – saying “if you love me you’ll tell me the truth” etc.When he fell asleep on her lap, she cut off all of his ten braids of long hair.- She cut off all his hair & shaved him I believe.Then quietly she picked up her cell phone and called the axis lords to come and get him.- No, they were pre-arranged to be there at a certain time. No cell phones, obviously…The axis lords came over from the city, shook Samson awake and captured him and led him away……..- He awoke and started to fight them like he had the last 3 times, but this time he realized his strength was gone.

How many people alive today remember the first moon landing in 1969.
Or… what percentage of people alive today remember the first moon landing?
First you would have to narrow down the term “people.” All people in the entire world? OK. Then you’d need to figure out how many people alive today were old enough to have seen it or heard about it–say, maybe the cutoff age could be five or something, so how many people alive today were born in 1964 or earlier? Then you’d need to figure out how many of those people had any access to any kind of technology–pygmies would not recall it because they never saw or heard of it. Then you’d have to figure out a way to account for all the people who meet all of those qualifications but who have an impairment, such as Alzheimer’s, that might prevent them from remembering. Whew. Then you could take the total number of people left and divide it by the total of people in the world today, and…are you still with me? and then maybe you’d have a very rough approximation of the percentage of people alive today in the world who remember that event.I sure remember it–they preempted Dark Shadows to show it on TV, and boy was I upset about it.
What is the title of this book.
When I was a child I read a book and the cover featured the painting, “Girl with a Pearl Earring.” Note, I know for sure that the book is definitely NOT “Girl with a Pearl Earring” by Tracy Chevalier.The beginning of the story starts out with a young girl in what I remember to be in an…
Elske by Cynthia Voight”The fourth and final title in Voigt’s Kingdom cycle (begun with Jackaroo) is thrilling, from its dramatic opener to its stunning climax. Newcomers to the Kingdom books can read it with as much pleasure as fans of the entire series (and without ruining for themselves the surprises of those previous works). Set in an imaginary continent that resembles medieval Europe, the story begins in the brutal realm of the Wolfers, a ruthless people among whom 12-year-old Elske has been raised and, horrifyingly, chosen for a sacrificial death. How Elske escapes this fate is the first of many ingeniously plotted turns, reversals that depend on the heroine’s intelligence and determination rather than coincidence or authorial sleight-of-hand. There is much to marvel at. Voigt demonstrates a remarkable breadth of imagination in dreaming up the customs of the various lands Elske moves through; e.g., a Scandinavian-type city builds a thriving economy by hosting biannual “courting winters” for young marriageable, wealthy foreigners. The cast also includes a princess wrongfully deprived of a throne (and willing to go to war to claim it) and a man worthy of Elske but chosen for one of the princess’s sisters”

You can try with this:The Crucible Book EssayBen O’ConnorMr. RichardsEnglish 10January 11th, 2009-Crucible Essay-The Crucible written by Arthur Miller was a story in which takes place in a town called Salem, Massachusets. This story was directed towards the topic of the witch trials of 1692 and how the people were effected by the deaths and horrific torture treatments. The Crucible portrayed the perfect description of how the time of witch trials were so curropt and unfair. In this time if someone were to blame another person of something then the person blamed would immediatly be guilty and thrown in Jail or hung. Is Salem many people tried accusing people of different crimes so that they could gain power aswell as land. Thomas Putnam was greedy for land because more land meant more power. Thomas Putnam had giles killed because he wanted his land, so he simply acused him of something which would result in his death from “pressing”…The full essay is here:
How many teenagers are writing books .
As a 16 yr old writing a book myself, i am interested to know how many other teenagers are writing books, in what sort of genres and for what kind of audience. And how many of you are serious about getting your books published??
Well, Ive been writing stories for about 4 years now, that means i started when I was 12. So yeah most of my writing is set in times before, you know, modern times. I write mostly in a medieval setting, with swords, and bows, and mythical beasts. Just recently I got together with a friend and we decided to coauthor a novel. It was a very… demanding task. It really was an outstanding book, it dealt with deities, you know like god’s and demons. But we put it on hold for the time being. I also began writing a story about pirates because, besides the fact that my school’s mascot is a pirate, I have NOT found a SINGLE book out there, that is decent enough and with enough fantasy, that is about pirates.My writing mostly involves fantasy, lands which don’t exist, and the supernatural, that is, for the most part, magic, xD. I love books which are epic and therefore write epic stories. My audience range is from 15 year olds all the way to, at the max, 35 year olds, although they may be enjoyed by all kinds of people, and even older ones. :pI am completely serious about publishing my novels, I love to write, and I wish to share these grand stories with the rest of the peoples of the world. =]. I plan to make a living out of writing, of course besides my carrer, plus if writing may sustain me on it’s own, then I’d love to become a full time writer. Poetry, I’m strong at that too, and it sure does bring spice to novels, well, sometimes. 🙂

It depends on how good your story isI wouldn’t depend on the number of readers you had on wattpad (if that’s what you’re using) as a criteria. I’ve read pretty crappy books that were on there. had a ridiculous amount of votes as a reader and everyone commenting was like ‘Oh what an amazing story’ when there are so many glaring problems, I’d need a bulldozer to pull them out. Or maybe readers have just become more tolerant of bad writing as long as there’s a plot thread somewhere
How many books are there based on the 1st, 2nd and 3rd ages of middle earth and the undying lands.
I know that there is:The hobbitThe fellowship of the ringThe two towersThe return of the kingThe SilmarillionTales from the Perilous Realm: “Farmer Giles of Ham”, “Leaf by Niggle”, “Adventures of Tom Bombadil” and “Smith of Wootton…
Do you mean story-format about the Middle-earth universe? The Silmarillion, Children of Hurin, Unfinished Tales, The Hobbit, Lord of the Rings are pretty much it. (The Bombadil, Tree and Leaf (by Niggle), Smith of Wooten Major are not part of the tale, really).The rest are about Tolkien and his works, or artwork about the same. The ones finished by Christopher or compiled by Christopher, which Sillmarillion, Children of Hurin, Unfinished Tales, (and the enormous History of Middle-earth series were), were all published after JRR’s death.There are the parodies: The Harvard Lampoon’s Bored of the Rings, and The Soddit by A.R.R.R. Roberts.By JRR Tolkien:There’s The Father Christmas Letters (all illustrated by the Professor as well), letters to his children from Father Christmas….very funny.Mr. BlissFinn and HengestThe Legend of Sigurd and GudrunRoverandomPoems and StoriesPictures by JRR Tolkien (he was a gifted artist…and unsung for it).I have collected Tolkien for over 30 years, and have over 100 books by and about the Master (not counting the massive paperbacked pile). There are on-line lists if you are looking at collecting. But for the stories of Arda and Aman and Middle-earth, written only by Tolkien, you have a limited tome-list. The Hobbit and LOTR. The posthumously published Simarillion, Unfinished Tales and The Children of Hurin are the only ones with story lines. All the others are related or unrelated poems, songs, creative progress bits…that don’t read along, like the encyclopaedic History of Middle-earth series, it’s a study guide.http://home.earthlink.net/~dbratman/tolk…http://www.abebooks.com/books/collectibl…http://www.tolkienguide.com/modules/wiwi…http://www.tolkienlibrary.com/jrrtolkien.htm
