"You miss 100% of the shots you don't take." - Wayne GretzkyIn honour of my nephew, Zack, who left his library book from French class here. Also in honour of French teachers in Ontario, my own having been Ms. Greensmith, I give to you a Wayne Gretzky quote because the French language book is about Wayne Gretzky and Zack doesn't especially like hockey so I think his French teacher was trying to give him a Canadian hero she thought a boy would like reading about. Unfortunately, Zack is just not a hockey guy. Anyway, enjoy the quote. Be glad it isn't in French because my French is very rusty.
"I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn’t say any other way – things I had no words for". — Georgia O’KeeffeQuote found on the Daily Art Fixx site. Do you watch your characters and the scene around them as you write or is it all just coming out as text direct from your brain to your keyboard? Do you see it in colour or black and white? Do you hear their voices as they speak? Can you feel their emotions as they go about their adventures? Have you ever found a word that said everything you thought you couldn't say in just one word?

If you are Canadian write about a character who is from any other country on the planet. If you are not Canadian, create and develop a character who is Canadian. What makes the character seem Canadian to you?

When poured onto cereal, milk is: A.) a beverage B.) a broth C.) a sauce Present your best argument.Maybe a chef would have the official answer from the official books of cookery. Myself, I guess it would be a broth. A sauce would need to be thickened, which milk isn't unless you add cornstarch or flour to your milk. Although cereal likely has cornstarch and flour in it, the milk doesn't really become thickened like a sauce. A beverage is served in a glass to be consumed on it's own.
