Here is a neat little tool that is like a dictionary and thesaurus combined, with more. It is a rather nice program to use when looking for new words and there is a free version.

Wordweb

Need advise on a comparing and contrast essay for ENG-111, some insight on how to view the right approch would be valued.

Thanks for the wordweb, Sandra! I desperately need that for my more comatose moments. :)

Randall, I'm sorry. I didn't see yours or Sandra's comment until now. I hope you found what you needed.

Thinking about wordwebs: I use Visuwords (http://visuwords.com), which is a free, online word "webbing" tool. Word associations, thesaurus, etc, presented graphically. Type in a word, hit, enter, and watch the web build. This is very cool technology, and it's useful, too.

David, that is a very cool resource! I'm extremely visual so that's great for me. Thanks very much for sharing that. Mind mapping type tools are definitely my kind of thing.

The layout of your book is very important. The average paperback book size is six inches wide and nine inches tall, which is much smaller than the average size of a sheet of an 8.5 x 11 inch sheet of paper. This means that if you are submitting a book for printing, you will need to select the proper page setup.

Your page layout can be designed with any word processing software if your book is for a small audience of friends or family. Any serious work, however, should be prepared using a page layout program, namely a desktop publishing, DTP program. Book buyers will not buy a book if it does not have professional typeset. Often there are subtle differences in the typography, point type and line spacing; even line breaks can affect the appearance of a smooth and consistent paragraph. A page layout program is designed to give the user maximum control over the appearance of the page, including graphic placement and rotation, drawing capabilities, text shaping, and the position of type on the page. DTP software programs will also include tools for easy rotation, scaling and cropping of photographs and graphics.  Read more at DLite Press or see attached file.

Currently I am preparing a campaign on Indiegogo.
To make my campaign a success then I need to get support from writers like you.
Together we can create "A story with millions of your own adventure in it".
Hi there.
Do you ever read a very boring fiction?
Do you ever feel that you can easily guess the storyline?
Do you ever feel that the main character had made a mistake when making decisions?
Do you ever feel that the end of the story does not match your expectations?
Do you ever feel that you can make a better ending?
Do you ever feel that you can make a fictional story better than the story you are reading?
If one or all of the above answer is yes, then you can join us.
Together we can create "A story with millions of your own adventure in it".
A story with millions of your own adventure in it - looking for readers, writers, ghost writers, authors, editors, reporters, journalists, bloggers, influencers, entrepreneurs, sponsors (funders) like you who want to help by giving $ 1 or more and spreading this campaign and the story to the world.
With one dollar or more you can create a new entertainment industry and change the way you read a story.
And every dollar you give to support this campaign I will return with perks worth tens, hundreds or even thousands of times.
This is a new entertainment industry you must know.
Try to imagine this. When you're reading a story on the website, you are given two choices. You can choose the next story based on your own choice. After selecting then you can continue reading the story. Shortly afterwards you will be presented back to the 2 other options. The next choice is up to you. Then you continue the story you are reading. After that you will be faced again with 2 choices. So onwards.
If you feel curious then you can re-read the story by changing your selection. Then you will see a different story with the story that you have read previously. The question now is why is this so? Because the storyline will be varying according to your choice.

You might say like this. Sounds like a book "choose your own adventure". Books I read when I was young. Gamebooks are sometimes informally called choose your own adventure books or CYOA which is also the name of the Choose Your Own Adventure, a series of children's books published by Bantam Books.
Correctly. The idea is taken from there. My story is the development of gamesbook. But I wrote a story much more interesting than the gamesbook because due to the limited number of pages. When a child first you may already feel interesting. But if you re-read the book now then becomes no fun anymore because you don't get anything with the amount of 80-200 pages.
Choose your own adventure books or CYOA is evolving. CYOA evolved into MYOA or Millions of Your Own Adventure. Don’t leave your friends behind. So invite your friends to join us.
I, as the author (with your help) is planning to make tens of thousands of articles with millions of your own adventure in it. With tens of thousands of articles then you like to see a show of your favorite series on TV for several years.

A story that I make (with your help) will surprise the world as made up of tens of thousands of articles with millions of your own adventure in it.
You are the main character in the story you are reading. So life and death, blessing and cursing, from the main character in the hands of you.
With millions of your own adventure in it then you can be whatever you want according to the choice you make.
