What’s the Difference Between ‘Will’ and ‘Shall’?

In this post, our focus will be on explaining the key differences between the modal verbs ‘will’ and ‘shall’. Many students have the misconception (a wrong opinion) that we use ‘will’ with the second person (you) and third person (he, she, they, it) pronouns and ‘shall’ with the first person pronouns, namely ‘I’ and ‘we’. And while it is true that ‘will’ can be used with any pronoun to denote a future course of action, there are some situations when we cannot use ‘will’. Doing so may not only change the meaning of the sentence, but the sentence may end up being grammatically incorrect as well.

Who Designed This World?

Here thoughts arise with sight,
and fade away like floating clouds.
Days appear like dreams seen at night
And nights seem like the tales I read daytime.

โ€˜Writing a Book a Feat, Making Sales the Icing on the Cakeโ€™

With all her books being published by Meryton Press, a full-service publishing company for books in both print and ebook formats, Ms Miller, who mothers a twenty-one-year-old girl, says that she first actually purchased and read several books published by Meryton Press, and it was only after being impressed with the quality of their books that she decided she would like to work for them.

In Memory of SPB

Like the way rain washes all dirt,
taking them to places not known,
death’s an end with one beginning;
That beginning’s to an end prone.
All we have is time that’s running.

โ€˜I Fancy Writing Something That Ridley Scott Would Want to Directโ€™

Upon being asked if she has something to tell budding authors who lose motivation in the starting phase of their career, Ms Swartz points out that selling is hard and that half the job of an indie author is marketing. She stresses, โ€˜Once you are sure your cover and blurb are good, itโ€™s all about ads, social media, and promotion of all kinds. It is the toughest and most stressful part of the job, in my opinion. It takes money and a ton of time and effort. Finding your readers can be the most difficult thing in the world, but with enough determination, you will find them, eventually.โ€™

Where Is God?

You ask me who engendered these small worlds,
but ask I who begot the cause of all.
If God exists, where is he now, please say,
and also if he likes spring, summer, fall.
My mind does boggle sighting cosmic curls.

If Youโ€™re a Lover of Short Crime Fiction, Then This Book Is a Must-Read for You

Sweet Southern Charm begins with an interaction between Janet Cramer, a ‘trashy’ woman living in a posh locality, and Chester Barfield, a guy masquerading as an employee of a company that offers a free assessment of personal security. The latter manages to make an entry to the former’s house, and it is what ensues that makes the story. Janet is found murdered, and investigator Georgia Beaumont and her subordinate Collin Cavanaugh are consequently roped in to figure out who perpetrated the crime. While the story on the one hand fast unravels the mystery, it also details the love-hate relationship Georgia and Collin share on the other.

If I Were a Bird

Were I a bird, would I sure fly that high?
As high as eyes yours can now see, my mate.
And from above would I see this seaโ€™s fate?
That flows illumined by the stars in sky?
Do you think I would find out what is sly
by seeing through the sky, the strange estate?
Or ween do you that I just might predate
With wings that could engulf the worlds too nigh?

How to Compose an English Sonnet?

English sonnets generally possess an element of love or romance, but as has already been stated, modern sonnets can deal with social issues, politics, nature, and even death of a loved one. Be that as it may, English sonnets are phrased in iambic pentameter, which is a line of verse with five metrical feet, each consisting of one short (or unstressed) syllable followed by one long (or stressed) syllable. The sing-song effect generated by English sonnets is by reason of this very meter.

Time to Tip Those Tormenting Thoughts

Those
that trod
the true track
tell tales too tough;
Talk turkey to them,
train them to tell those truths
that treat their troubling thinkings.

Meet This Gay Author Who Has Served the American Military

Upon being asked to give a glimpse of the life he had led before turning into a full-time writer, Lovejoy divulges that college was a place he never went to. โ€˜Notwithstanding, I have worked in the criminal justice system. First as a cop and then a private investigator where I specialized in criminal defence and helping the families of missing persons. I spent two years as an investigator for the defence team of a federal capital offence case,โ€™ he explains.

One Man, Many Faces

Talking about his very first book Zumanity, which he started working upon two years ago, the 26-year-old, who often jokes his blue veins are filled with ink, says, โ€˜Every zombie story has the one character that holds onto its humanity for a bit longer than everyone else. But what if that continued for a longer period of time? The main character in Zumanity falls to her death shortly after being bitten by a zombie, so she has an odd transformation.โ€™

Key Differences Between Simple Past Tense and Present Perfect Tense

We generally use the present perfect tense to talk about actions that have a link with the present. Nonetheless, it is also possible to use the past tense to express such actions. Also, the adverbs โ€˜justโ€™, โ€˜recentlyโ€™ and โ€˜latelyโ€™ can be used to denote that the action being spoken about happened in the recent past. It is also possible to use the adverb โ€˜alreadyโ€™ to denote that the action is completed. However, if the sentence happens to be negative, we oftentimes use the adverb โ€˜yetโ€™ provided the sentence is said in the present perfect tense. Look at the example sentences given below:

What Happens After Death Could You Find?

I do my duties diligently, all of which I come across in this very place,
What I doubly ensure is to try my best in all situations to be kind;
Oh, yeah! I also ask this question today as I only everything embrace:
If nothingness exists, what happens after death, could you find?

The Procrastinator

You look at me with what I call a smirk,
And your thoughts are kept hidden from my soul.
These are the thoughts that deep within just lurk.
Is there a thing that might just make them whole?
