Guest Post Rights

From time to time, interested bloggers may contribute to CuteWriting. All the guest posts on the blog are copyrighted to the respective authors. While, contributions may be retained exclusively within CuteWriting for a brief period of time, any republication of the material should be with the express permission of the original author, with link back to the original author's website, which can be found on the guest post page itself. For such republication, you may contact either the original author or me for obtaining permission. Though it is not required, I would much appreciate a link to CuteWriting's post page for contributed posts.

Image and Video Copyright

All the images, videos, or animations I use in this blog are taken from either various public domains or my own. In the past posts, all the images I have posted are directly linked to the original image pages from the image itself. This link is meant as a credit to the owner of the image file indirectly. From now on, all the images I use will be hosted within Blogger itself, and I will provide an explicit link at the bottom of the article to credit the image owner. The same rule applies to videos and animations.

Though in my tight schedule, I do not contact the owner of the image before adding it to this blog, I believe a link is sufficient to assert his/her authority. Images are not more financially valuable than text, and that's why I followed this procedure. If you are the owner of any of the images you find on this blog and feel that I am violating any rights, then please convey me your concern (with verifiable proof that you are the owner of the image), and we will negotiate the possible course of action.

When republishing articles with images here, you should place the image links to the original image owner as mentioned in the post. All image links should be either directly linked to the owner's website from the image itself or mentioned in an explicit link credit at the bottom of the article.

Derivative Works

Originally, you are not allowed to create any derivative works based on the work you find in this blog. However, you may contact me, if you feel the need. I will give you the guidelines to follow.

Let's not copy others' works and build upon them. Let's not do plagiarism. Let's make our original creations, by properly researching and incorporating our fresh ideas, thus giving our readers the best content.

Power of Short Sentences

Post dedicated to Thomas Hardy (see History Today below). There are monster sentences like the one you encounter as the first paragraph of Oliver Twist by Charles Dickens . One of my friends, whom I am getting equipped for his IELTS ( what is this? ), told me that the examination recommends long sentences. In writing classes also, I guess it’s longer sentences most tutors promote. But indubitably shorter sentences are more powerful . We will see why. Take a long sentence for instance: Tom Cruise, one of the finest actors in the whole world, is perhaps the most powerful celebrity to exist ever according to Time Magazine, but many people still dispute this fact and point out that there are more powerful and popular actors than Cruise, though they were unsuccessful in providing the total number of fans, who liked the films of those actors. This is a long sentence and it is very confusing . Though it has a logical construction and conveys a meaning, it falters in many occasions and seems

Creative Writing: Crafting Characters With Emotional Appeal in Mind

When you read the greatest fiction works ever, have you ever asked what was so compelling about them that you not only kept reading it, but you ended up reading all other major works of the writer? It may well be because the writer touched your emotional quotient quite a bit. Every reader has a unique taste . Some like to read suspense thrillers , some tender love stories, and some others dark horror and bloodshed stories . That’s why there are all sorts of genres out there. When a writer gives you what exactly you want, you will keep reading. Here we come to the emotional appeal. Character Imperfection Perfect characters may not always be the upshot of a writer’s deliberation. It may well be due to ignorance . Usually the upcoming writers take it for granted that if they create perfect characters, they will be able to garner a bigger audience . It is not true. You have to ask yourself what a character would do in a particular situation. Perfect characters—perfect gunmen, perfect

Another Tiny List of Confusables

Earlier, you may remember we published a list of confusable words . Here we are again, with such a list of words. Abjure/Adjure: Abjure means "to formally renounce (give up) something" such as a position. Adjure on the other hand means 'to appeal to' or 'solemnly order'. The governor decided to abjure his position due to political pressure. Normally, adjuring to the subordinates doesn't give many results. Amount/Number: Use amount when you have uncountable subject. Use number when it is countable. The amount of love one gets depends on the number of friends one has. Appraise/Apprise: Appraise is the word applied to quantitative evaluation of something. Apprise means 'communicate' or 'inform'. Appraising diamonds is the work of an expert. Joe apprised me of the schedule of events. Attorney/Lawyer/Solicitor: These terms are highly misinterpreted and confused by many people. Let me clarify. In the US, an attorney is any member
