WRITING: THE 5 W’s October 13, 2017...

WRITING:  THE 5 W’s                                                                   October 13, 2017 We’re constantly reading and writing, aren’t we?  Even if we aren’t, someone else is, and we want all necessary key elements to be included in the story.  You’ve probably noticed that in writing, nearly every newspaper story tells who did the what, as well as when, where, why and how he/she did it (unless some details are not yet available to law-enforcement personnel or they cannot be released to the public until after next of kin have been notified).  Those “W” key elements are known as the 5 W’s of journalism, with “how” sometimes included, too.  The same basics hold true for other story forms, too, whether nonfiction (true) or fiction (not true).  The game of “Clue” is a good example. Who:  especially the protagonist/main character.  Miss Plum? What:  a key part of the story’s plot.  What happened? When:  daytime? Nighttime? Between 4 and 6 a.m.? Where:  the setting for a story or a scene in a story/an article, a short story, a poem, a book.  In the drawing room? Why:  motive.  Because his partner had embezzled all of their joint funds? How:  With a gun? A knife? A candlestick? If you don’t have the 5 W’s in your story, you...

DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 25, FALL 2017 DANCING WITH THE STARS SEASON 25, FALL 2017, WEEK 4 Dear DWTS Fans:  Thank you for enjoying our blog and for bearing with us until we could enter all of the latest signups into the database. Some weeks, we receive so many signups that we have a heck of a time getting caught up.  Again, thank you!   Welcome to Week 4 of Season 25, Dancing with the Stars!  Tom and Erin hosted. Carrie Ann Inaba (CAI), Len Goodman, and Bruno Tonioli judged.  It’s “Most-Memorable Year” Night, which usually brings truly vulnerable and heartfelt personal stories and performances from the celebrities.  This week will be vastly opposed to last week’s Guilty Pleasures Night, when a few celebs’ stories/performances, such as Frankie’s and Lindsey’s, were entertaining and appeared to be genuine, while a few others, such as Nick’s and Nikki’s and, worst of all, Sasha’s, really did not work. Here’s hoping for high quality across the board tonight!   THE FULL CAST! “Property Brothers’” real-estate expert Drew Scott & pro Emma Slater Retired NFL Receiver Terrell Owens & pro Cheryl Burke (2-Time MBT winner) Vanessa (Minillo) Lachey (Nick’s wife) & pro Maks Chmerkovskiy WWE Wrestler Nikki Bella & pro Artem Chigvintsev Actor/Singer/Dancer...
