One of the first novels I wrote was a sprawling 100,000 word fantasy with dozens of different characters and storylines. The result was a confused morass; the reader had no idea what to focus on. It remained unpublished, but was a great learning experience.
A must have for babies and children, Roman chamomile eases asthma, colic, infections, skin problems and temper tantrums.
We’ve all had runs that, for no obvious reason, were more difficult than usual, yet the foods we’ve eaten, the running route, the time of day, have all been the same as normal. If this happens to you, think about how much you have had to drink over the previous 24 hours – dehydration may be the cause of these tougher-than-usual runs. Better still, keep a note of how much water you drink and aim to consume enough to keep your urine almost colourless… and then note how much easier your runs are!
The last paragraph of your book will need special consideration if you don't want your story to peter out. This is a good place to sum up what has happened to you, or to give your views on life, or to pass on some advice based on your experiences.
Tet is a festival to celebrate the end of the lunar calendar and the beginning of spring. Following lavish meals, the Vietnamese join parades and let off firecrackers to ward off evil spirits. Both North and South Vietnam had broadcast that there would be a two-day ceasefire during the festival.

It's useful to put your ideas to the test during a debate and listen to other views on the subject. You may even get ideas for future speeches.
Lack of integrity is a double-edged sword. It cuts both the giver and the receiver. Both parties have lost. If the ripples of betrayal extend beyond the two people, many others can be affected.
Stay sober before your speech – your friends will thank you.
I hate cleaning my camera’s sensor and only do it as a last resort. To reduce the risk of dust and debris finding its way onto the sensor, always switch your camera off before removing a lens and change lenses as quickly as you can, and out of the wind.
