Why I Hate "Strong Female Characters" Like nonplussed and literally, the phrase “strong female character” has come to mean its antithesis. When people hear it they picture a full fleshed out woman with her own wants and desires. What they get is a woman in a mini skirt and thigh high boots that occasionally punches people. But, and this is vital, that strong female character, cannot actually save the day. Her entire existence is for the main male hero. She may be spunky and sassy and is always met beating up some guys, but the second she teams up with MMH (main male hero) she abandons everything in her life to help him on his quest. Perhaps she manages to get captured and somehow fully forget how to fight allowing the MMH to do all the cool stuff while she sits around in a metal bikini. Strong female character is a buzzword. People know it’s something audiences...

Some people say that accounting students do not have adequate writing skills. However, that is not entirely true, since there are accounting students who have demonstrated excellent writing skills. But the academe should not be blind to the obvious fact that while accounting students have very technical skills, their communication skills – including writing and speaking – are somewhat lacking. So, how can an accounting student improve his writing skills? Below are some tips and pointers which an accounting student could follow to be able to gain and hone his writing skills. An accounting student could improve his writing by simply reading well-written materials like books, references, academic papers and even daily newspapers. The student should observe how the sentences and paragraphs were written and how the terms were used and applied in the materials. The student should also observe how coherence and consistency were achieved in the material. He...

*Note: Although I wrote this for the one year anniversary of my website: http://janachantel.com/ I definitely think that the advice and the message still applies to all. I hope you all find this helpful.* As some of you may know the one year anniversary of my blog is this week (Wed. June 13th). Starting off with only 0 hits, I’ve managed to end with a little over 15,000 hits (as of June 12th)—with some views coming from people in other countries. I have to say that I am pretty proud of how I went about setting up, promoting and maintaining my blog. So I would like to share some of my techniques with my fellow writers and all who is interested in starting up a blog. As some of you may know through my Twitter, my Facebook page, and even my Authors Info profile, I am a complete music junkie. And my favorite...

I’ve led you on and I am sorry. You came in good faith to discover precisely how to end another’s life and walk away untouched by the law.  In other words, you hoped this article would explain, step by step, how to exact justice without fear of reprisal.  Come on now!  In this technological age of advanced forensic science and DNA testing?  You’d be caught in a heartbeat.   Would you consider another option? One that does not lead to the death sentence or life in prison?  How about writing a flash story about someone who gets away with murder?  In 1,000 words or less you can lay it all out: the weapon, the motive, the murderer, the victim.   Okay, so you’ve changed your mind about ridding the world of some undesirable.  You’ve decided to let the cold heart of your oppressive boss go on ticking.  You’ll put up with...
