what is a complete sentence

A complete sentence is simple a NOUN (or Pronoun), VERB AND a Complete thought. If you can put these 3 things together with a capital at the beginning and punctuation at the end, you’ll have a complete sentence.

Keep it simple

So to learn what a sentence is, it is easiest to start with the basics. We you have a NOUN, VERB and A COMPLETE THOUGHT. You have the most basic sentence or what we call an independent clause. This means the Clause can stand on its own, and it is a sentence.

Example 1:

Tom went to the store.

Tom is our noun. Went is our verb. Your Elementary school teacher used to ask, What did Tom do? He went to the store. It answers a question, so it is a complete thought.

You can also look at this way: Tom is our subject. The rest of the sentence is basically or predicate. I’m not going to get any more complicated with this.

Looking at a sentence this way we can see very easily what problems sentence are.

What is a run on sentence?

A run on sentence is when you have too much of a sentence. That means that we have more than a NOUN, VERB and COMPLETE THOUGHT not properly put together.

Tom went to the store he bought some milk.

Notice in this example we have 2 sentences. Tom went to the store. Is a noun, verb and complete thought, and he bought some milk is also a noun, verb complete thought. You have to connect these sentence properly or you get a run on. You can learn about compound senesce (how to hook them together) on our compound sentences page or you can read our run-on sentences page for more on run-ons.

For now let’s continue with the basics of sentences. A run on sentence is either a sentences with more than one complete thought (answering more than one question) or 2 independent clauses not properly constructed. Basically a run on sentence runs past the noun, verb complete thought.

What is a sentence fragment?

A sentence fragment is a sentence that is missing either a noun, verb or complete thought. Simple right?

So if Tom went to the story is our complete sentence, a fragment would be like Tom went, or went to the store. Basically we are missing the Noun (subject), or we are missing our complete thought. You can read more about this on our what is a sentence fragment page.

Boosting productivity with the Pomodoro Technique as a Freelance Writer

Boosting productivity with the Pomodoro Technique as a Freelance Writer

by Kira Carr

 

A lot of writer’s struggle with focus. Actually, this is a common issue for most people. There are so many distractions on any given day that people often find themselves wasting a lot of time and not getting any work done. This has a negative impact on several factors like stress levels, workload, and productivity.

For this article, let’s focus on writers. There are two types of writers in general. The first are writers who live off writing exclusively and this is their sole source of income. On the other hand, there are people who write but usually have another career to help pay the bills. Both groups, however, have similar risks and pitfalls when it comes to workloads and productivity.

There are so many freelance writing jobs online available today that most writers at a certain point take on more work that they can objectively handle. Having too many articles or  blog posts to write can result in sloppy work and decrease in quality which can damage your brand and potentially make you lose some clients. If you have another career next to writing and a family, it can be extremely hard to make time for all the tasks you are supposed to handle within a day.

The allure of writing for many people is that you can take online writing jobs from home and that you can, with a bit of skill and luck, earn some extra cash in addition to your salary. The downside is that bad organization often leads to many sleepless nights staring at a computer screen.

There is a very handy and simple to implement technique that many people are using to improve their focus and productivity it is called: The Pomodoro Technique.

What is the Pomodoro Technique?

The Pomodoro Technique is a great effective and simple technique to organize your time and improve focus and productivity overall.

How does It work?

Pomodoro works in a way that is designed to categorize your time with 25minute windows of pure productivity. The idea is that you work with one hundred percent dedication and focus for 25 minutes on a certain task after the window closes you make a five minutes’ break. After four of these cycles it is designed to take a larger break of half an hour. The idea behind this is that you never get yourself exhausted from sitting and concentrating on one subject for too long and after that, you cannot do anything else. It is designed to help you organize your busy schedule.

What do I need for It?

The beauty of it is that you don’t actually need anything to implement this technique besides your smartphone and some good will. There are some “specific” Pomodoro apps out there but they don’t add almost any value to the good old fashioned timer on your phone. Set it to 25 minutes and get busy.

How does it help writers?

We have already discussed accepting too many online freelance writing jobs. If you happen to have too many things to write, the Pomodoro technique will definitely help you out. Plan your Pomodoro`s so that you get a handle on your workload. Divide your time into 25 minutes’ sections and assign each section a specific task to focus on.  After a section for a specific area Is over just leave it be and move on to another task you scheduled in. This technique will let you better organize and plan your time and it will make you realize just how big of a time frame 25 minutes really is and how much you can get done when you truly apply yourself.

By having a set time frame for a certain activity, you are giving yourself a challenge, some positive pressure to beat the clock. You can implement all sorts of challenges to push yourself even further. For example, you can set a certain word amount written you need to reach within those initial 25 minutes. You can also optimize your writing by setting, for example, 2-timeframes for research and one for the outline. After that 2 or 3 more for the writing and one for editing. You will have a finished product much faster than you would usually do.

How does it help you in general?

The recommendation Is that you should walk for your five-minute breaks. Health issues related to sitting constantly for longer periods of time are well known and documented. This can especially be risky for people that have writing jobs from home. You are already in your home dressed comfortably, why would you take a walk or even stand up for your break when you can just continue to relax in your favorite chair watching YouTube videos. Rest your legs get some blood flowing through them and don’t look at a screen during your breaks. You will ease your body and reset your mind for another Pomodoro.

This simple trick will let you perceive your time differently during the day. It will teach you how much work you can get done in a certain period of time and you recognize when you have free spare 25minute windows that you can utilize to be productive. You can even use a slow hour on your regular job to squeeze in 2 Pomodoro`s of your freelance work and get ahead of the curb at home!

Should I Implement it?

Most definitely! Countless authors have testified about the benefits of the Pomodoro technique. It will even help you if you get writer’s block. 25minutes purely concentrating on the place you got stuck will definitely be beneficial even if you don’t push through the block from the first try. Whatever you do, structuring your time for obligations will have positive effects on your productivity.

The Pomodoro technique is a simple yet effective way to increase productivity and better your focus in this distraction heavy world. It is easy to implement and you don’t need any special tools or equipment to do it. It is applicable and beneficial if you have a full-time job in the classic sense and you write on your free time or if you are full on career writer. It will help you better organize your time and to better tackle your assignments and to finish them all in a timely manner and without wasting too much energy so you have the time and strength to enjoy the rest of your day.

Writer's Checklist for the Zombie Apocalypse

Writer’s Checklist for the Zombie Apocalypse

Writer’s Checklist for the Zombie Apocalypse!

Here is our Writer’s Checklist for the Zombie Apocalypse. It’s everything you will need if the zombies attack, as a writer. In light of recent events I thought I would give my suggestions on what writers should do to prepare for and during the coming zombie apocalypse. I feel writers will deal with the coming scourge differently than many normal everyday people. For writers the attack of mindless flesh eaters is really more of a chance to get away from the decaying world and back to the basics of writing. If you are a writer, this checklist is for you:

Writing utensils.
You will need something to write with. Computers are out, of course. They will be giant paperweights, and some people might think it’s a good idea to get an antique typewriter. I wouldn’t go that direction. Those things are heavy and sure to slow you down when you are running from a mindless hoard. I’m going with a pen or pencil. I like the pencil best being that you know when it will run out. You can sharpen it with a knife until it’s done. These do not make good weapons at all, so always keep them in your bag. Also if you are one of those writers who say that you can only write on your computer, let the zombies eat you. It’ll be easier.

 

A book bag!
This is every writers must have. Find a good book bag. Make sure that you have one that is double strap and fits tight. This way when you run it doesn’t bounce all over. Keep it light! Many a great writers will be eaten due to over stuffing their book bags. Resist the urge!

 

Notebooks.
Get a few really good notebooks. Try to get them light weight so college ruled is best (more words on each page).

 

Freezer bags.
You need some freezer bags to put the notebooks in so if you get wet, your work stays dry!

 

2 Paperback Books
A couple of your favorite author’s paperback books! Try to go as light weight as possible. 1 or 2 max. This will be difficult.

 

Food.
Anything in a wrapper. You going to be sitting and snacking most of the time, maybe on the run, so go with high nutrition, light weight. Just buy the same things you eat now while writing, but they have to be healthy instead of candy bars.

 

Alcohol.
Get a bottle of something strong! Think Raymond Carver. Vodka is your best bet. It will be ok for injuries, and ok for dealing with things at the beginning of the onslaught. Keep your head clear most of the time, but you might need a shot or two to get the literary inspiration in the middle of all the craziness.

 

Candles.
Get a pack of candles. I would go with the longer broad base candles. You are looking for ones you can hold in your hand and read with or just set on the floor and they won’t fall over. Get a couple or a few of these at least. Also, candles are less bright and less noticeable than flashlights. DO NOT GET SCENTED CANDELS. I don’t know if the walking dead can smell…never thought about it, but don’t risk it.

 

Flashlight.
You need a flashlight just for getting from one place to the other. Get a pen flashlight and use it sparingly.

 

Pack of disposable lighters.
Try to get at least 10 small lighters. You can’t write if you can’t see.

 

Aluminum Baseball bat.
This is for zombies and people you meet who use dangling participles. You want to keep the zombies at bay. Many recommend guns. I don’t think they will be of much help. A bat is easy, and helps you get away!

 

Toothbrush.
If you get a toothache in the zombie apocalypse, it’s game over.

 

Toothpaste
See above.

 

Large Water bottle.
Writers are still human until bitten by a zombie….so you need water.

3 Favorite poems that will inspire you to keep going
Examples: The Wasteland, The Second Coming, I Heard a Fly Buzz OR Charge of the Light Brigade, something that will help you keep your hopes up…

Coffee at least 1/4 lbs ground.
Yep, you will need it.

 

First aid kit.
They always recommend a first aid kit, but I’m recommending this for a different reason. If you hurt or break a finger or cut your hand, your writing days might be over. So this is a must! If you hurt your leg or foot, go out into the street and let the zombies eat you.

 

Duct tape
I don’t know why you will need it, but something always comes up.

 

Hoodie
Yes you will need your favorite hoodie.

 

Raincoat
This is great for making a small tent out of while you are writing.

 

Magnesium fire-starter
For when the lighters are all done.

 

Multi Tool.
Make sure it has a corkscrew and a can opener!

 

Handheld radio.
Writers I know can be a little antisocial at times, but a radio is always recommended, so I put it in here. Maybe you can listen in.

 

One pot
For boiling water.

 

A small portable stove.
This is nice to have until you learn the zombie patterns and can get out to where all the fires are burning.

 

Laminated map of your city and state.
If you have one of these you can keep notes in the novel you are writing about the zombie apocalypse. You wont have to go back later and do the research. “I was almost eaten at the corner of there and there…”

Compass.
This is just in case you have to live on the run. I would say as a writer, from many of the writers I know, it would be best to simply stay put as long as possible.

It’s important for writers to prep for these kinds of things. So get all this stuff ready and put it in a closet somewhere. When the zombies are at your door grab it and go! Remember, keep writing, even if flesh-eating hoards are after you.

We haven’t done one of these in a long time. Our Haiku, Horror Story, and 2 Sentence Stories are doing so well, we thought we’d add one more, Continue the Story…

This is not a contest, but if we publish the story, which I hope it turns out that we do, then you will get full credit for a publication with us.

The way you play this little game is simple. You just continue the story. You have to write a paragraph, each time that you continue the story, but you can write as many as you want as long as others are jumping in. You can take the story in any direction you like. Make sure it’s scary. We’ll start with one paragraph, and you continue it. If in the end we like the story, we want to publish it on EWR: Short Stories. Each person who adds to the story will get their name on the credits, with a bio and links to sites or books or whatever. One link per person.

We will edit this when we go to publish the story.

Continue the story is a time honored tradition of writers. It’s related to the Exquisite Corpse, which we also do on our site. Anyway, I hope you will add to this. It’a fun little exercise.

Here we go. Continue this story:

He heard the girl screaming in the distance. He was at least an hour from his home. The long walk in the night air had done him well. He felt rejuvenated until he hear the screaming, in the distance. He took his one headphone out of ear, so he could possibly get a direction to go to find her.

He had stopped jogging, and now roamed a large stone fence, listening. As he came to a break in the fence he could hear she was only a short distance away. He looked up to see, illuminated by the street lights, “Allan Park Memorial Cemetery.” He passed under the sign, and headed for the screams.

Chapbook Publishers

Our Chapbook Publishers list is updated. We need your help to keep it that way. Please tell us if we need to remove a dead link or add something we forgot. Please leave us a comment below to tell us if we have a dead link, you want us to add a publishers, or if you just have something to say.  Also, C= contest.

Chapbook publishers present one of the best opportunity for young and emerging writers to get started. They allow you to get your fledgling work out there, and they give a “bump” to many writers who would have to struggle along for a few more years before publishing. They are a tradition in publishing, and we hope they survive for a very long time. In the age of electronic books and fast publishing, chapbook publishers sometimes seem a little superfluous, but they are a very good way to have your work validated by a publisher at a very young stage in a career. This is invaluable for some writers to give them the confidence to continue on with their writing. Please note that you can find a complete and searchable listing of book publishers on EWR: Book Publishers.
