All these are forms of art and expression which can be enhanced by inspiration and education. For instance, writing poetry can be written by someone inspired by a certain episode in his or her life or by someone who just knows how to write one. Here are a few tips for those who want to know how to write poems as a profession or as a hobby.
It is easier for people to convey their thoughts when they are inspired. For amateur poem writers, looking back into inspiring moments in life can be really helpful. Listening to music and looking into photographs can also bring imagination to some writers.
Read Good Books

Anybody that has a story can write a book. You do not need to be a journalist for you to write a book. I have known so many people who have written and published a book without even taking a journalism course. But then, when we talk of writing and publishing book, it always connects to journalism because that is what journalism is all about – publishing. But did you know that even people who are out of school are capable of writing a book? Not all authors and writers have actually finished their schooling. Some of them are just too smart and gifted to write. So, what I mean is you do not have to study journalism just to write your own book. But if you want to have proper knowledge about journalism then you can take a journalism course and become a good journalist someday. There are actually different types of journalism, from print publishing to electronic broadcasting, from newspaper to television, as well as the web, and to digital technology. There is actually a wide scope of jobs and work that you can do as a journalist. But right now I will be more focusing on publishing your own book. What you need to consider when writing a book?
The very first thing that you need to think about and arrange is the story or topic that you want to tell in your book. You can tell different types of stories depending on your passion and style. You can tell a fictional story or base on true to life story, or you can also base it on what you have observed in your surroundings. Your story will depend on your target readers. If your targets are children of course it will be more humorous, educational, and fictional stories. But if your targets are teenagers and adults, then it will be a different level of approach.
Another factor that is very important in writing books is the characters. You need to be sure that you know the characteristics of all your characters. In every story, there is always a leading character where the story is focused on. You also need to be sure that the characters portray their roles in the entire story.
Lastly, you need to know the moral lesson of the story. You need to be sure that your reading will have something to learn after reading your book. Make sure that the story could influence their life in a good way.
Now you see that it’s not that hard to write your own book. You just need to understand what you want to send to your readers.

Before we realize its worth when it’s already too late, where we are already suffering from serious illness and we have this regrets within us.

Poetry comes nearer to vital truth than history. This is what the famous Greek philosopher, Plato, said. Writing poetry then must be a great challenge since the truth is always difficult to write about. The difference between the two is that history is a collection of facts, with a consensus being made about what actually happened. It is also only what people have observed from a third person’s perspective. They have to agree first before considering it as the truth. On the other hand, poetry is a collection of what a particular person considers as the truth whether it may be his/ her feelings, ideas, thoughts, perceptions, etc. It is what he/she has observed within his surroundings and within his/herself. It doesn’t only describe the way things happened from a third person’s perspective but also includes what he/she feels or thinks about them. Poetry is nearer to the truth because we can never get away with the fact that an observation is never fully objective. It is always influenced by our emotions and thoughts.
We have established that writing poetry is a great challenge since it writes about the truth yet we can say that it is even a greater challenge that we can imagine. We can never write poetry just in our whims. We have to think of certain rules and limitations and how we can use them to our advantage to create an outstanding poem, one that can reach deep within a reader’s soul. An aspiring poet should think of poem structures, poetry meters, rhyme schemes, etc. that he/she will adopt. Yet, this is not even the hardest part. The hardest part is identifying what to write about. We can always write about random thoughts but will the readers relate to it? The question of whether why one writes poetry will come to the picture at this point. Do we want to write just to express our emotions and thoughts or do we write because we want other people to relate to it and feel the emotions and think of the thoughts that we have? We can always have both but we have to know what is more important.
When we’ve identified our purpose in writing, the time is set for us to know what to write about. We have to think of something unique, something new, something that can influence something great. Or we can always stick to writing about normal things such as our daily experiences but we have to give it a twist, so that it will just not be included in the list of poems no one reads. There are tons of things to write about, endless ideas to come across with. The world is full of what we feel and what we think and we can always write about mundane things or matters out of this world or even this universe. There are a lot of truths existing and we have a lot of choices to pick. The most important thing is that we get to pick out that one that we feel is true for us and can also be true for others. If we have tackled this step, we can do the rest. Writing poetry is never as easy as we think just as the truth isn’t.

When it comes to books, there are too many to mention when it comes to choices. This is because there are different types of books available that you can read. But there is one type of book that stands out among the rest – fiction books. Fiction books from its name, the stories and events happened in the story is all fictional or just came from the imagination of the author or writer. But of course, each reader has his or her own choice of fictional stories. I’m sure that you are also a fan of fiction books especially if you love to read. Later I will tell you some of the popular fiction books that really made a reputation in the market.
These fiction books are very available in the market and the downside of it is it cost a little expensive especially those hard bound and if the new release books. You might be familiar with some of these popular authors who have made a reputation in the market and their books have been turn into movies: Dan Brown, J.R.R. Tolkien, Yann Martel, Suzanne Collins, J.K. Rowling, Cormac McCarthy, Stephanie Meyer, and George R.R. Martin. These are the authors that wrote the books that became very popular in the market. The books that they have written are: A Gme Of Thrones, The Fellowship of the Ring, The Hobbit, Twilight, The Road, Harry Potter, Angels & Demons, Life of Pi, The Hunger Games, and The Da Vinci Code.

But fiction books have made its popularity in the market and have made a big impact to many lives. Many people have been entertained and have found something that they can do during their spare time.

Creating non fictional books is not an easy thing to do especially if you are just a novice in terms of writing books. Since it is non fictional, the contents should be valuable and should be accurate. Aside from that, you first need to come up with an idea with regards to the topic you want to write about. One tip is for you to first try to analyze your target readers. Why does that mean? It means you should try to decide if what type or kind of audience you want to have as the readers of your book. For example, you want to share your knowledge with regards to helping people lose weight effectively. That means that your target audiences as the possible readers of your book are those who are overweight who want to become successful with losing weight.
One technique that most authors use in order to come up with an idea or concept to write about is to try and analyze what most readers are interested on reading. They try to identify what most readers are looking for and what they want to learn about. For example, a lot of people are looking for ways on how to earn money. Since there are many ways for a person to be able to earn money, try to look for a way that will surely capture the interest of the readers and then write about it. Make sure that the content of your book will be able to help them find the answer they need. Of course, you also need to ensure that you are knowledgeable and are passionate with the topics or ideas you want your non fictional books to have as their content.
Once you already have an idea on what to write about, you must do thorough research about the idea or the topic. Make sure that every chapter of the book is worth reading and will continue to catch the interest of the readers and make them want to continue reading the next chapter. Once you are already done with writing the content of your book, try to read it from the very beginning. Try to find out whether it made you become interested on reading the contents up until the end. That way, you will not only be able to find out whether your book is indeed interesting and worth reading, but will also let you locate errors that need to be corrected if ever there are some. Typographical errors are very common in write ups. Even though it may sound to be a very simple error, trying to correct a lot of typographical errors can be a waste of time for editors and publishers.

Not everyone has the talent to write a poem or to write poetry. But the good thing is this can be learned for those who are interested. Not all poetic writers were born to have this talent; some of them have just developed or learned it. So, if you also want to know how to write poem, you need to learn the basic rules of writing poetry. But most of the time poem is a form of expression of oneself. Other people use this as reliever for their stress because this is where they express their feelings. But this is not always the case. Many people write poetry as hobby and simply expressing what they feel on that very moment. Now, here are my recommendations before you start writing poetry.
Think Of The Subject You Want To Write About
Of course, when you write something, you can’t just write anything without following any rules. That will defile the meaning or the sense of the poem. First, you need to know what subject you will be writing about. Will you want to write about love, family, and other topics that interests you. Make sure that you know what you want to achieve in that poem that your readers may appreciate. It’s hard to write if you don’t know what to write about. Another factor is you need to write when there is a spark in you. It’s easier to write if you are inspired.
Choose Right Words
Next, of course you need to sound good and convincing when you are writing poetry. Choosing the right words would give that deeper meaning to the subject that you are writing and also it will give a big impact to the readers. That’s why you need to widen your vocabulary so you can use different words that would perfectly describe your subject. Another thing is when you choose the right words it will also give the right meaning. It will be easily understood by the reader.
Use Poetic Device
Next will be the use of poetic device. The most common poetic device used is the rhythm. Another device is the rhyme which could add suspense to your lines, it will also enhance the meaning of what you are writing, or make the poem more consistent. Other poetic device that can also help in enhancing your poem include: meter, metaphor, assonance, alliteration, and repetition.
Now, you realize that it’s not that easy to make a poem. You need to learn and understand these devices if you want to improve your writing skills.

Studies have shown that a large number of children and adults are battling obesity. This has increased health and weight management awareness. People who want to lose weight and stay healthy should consider buying health books.
There are numerous health related books on the market. Many of these contain diet plans and make unrealistic claims. The best health books are the ones that inform readers about different types of foods and exercise regimes.
The more consumers know about health issues, the better choices they will make. For instance, if buyers know a particular brand of margarine contains more fat than its competitors, they may not buy it. Listed below are a few different types of health related books that can help consumers.
- Food Books will tell readers which foods to eat and which ones to avoid. Many of them will also list the calorie counts of different foods.
- Exercise books will generally outline an exercise plan. The best workout plans explain why readers should perform each exercise. For example, a yoga book should clearly explain the benefits of yoga.
- Specialist health books will teach readers how to deal with specific illnesses and problems. An example of this would be a book on gluten allergies. This book would advise readers on what foods to stay away from and how to cook gluten free meals.
Much of the information found in these books can be found online for free like info on garcinia cambogia, and other weight loss supplements.
