The Tales of Beedle the Bard

In December 2007, J.K. Rowling unveiled The Tales of Beedle the Bard, The Tales of Beedle the Bard, Standard Edition
a very special book of five fairy tales illustrated by the bard herself, embellished with silver ornaments and mounted moonstones. Amazon was fortunate to come into possession of one of the original copies, and it was our privilege to share images and reviews of this incredible artifact. Now J.K. Rowling is giving millions of Harry Potter fans worldwide cause for celebration with a new edition of The Tales of Beedle the Bard, available December 4, 2008.

Offering the trademark wit and imagination familiar to Rowling's legions of readers--as well as Aesop's wisdom and the occasional darkness of the Brothers Grimm--each of these five tales reveals a lesson befitting children and parents alike: the strength gained with a trusted friendship, the redemptive power of love, and the true magic that exists in the hearts of all of us. Rowling's new introduction also comments on the personal lessons she has taken from the Tales, noting that the characters in Beedle's collection "take their fates into their own hands, rather than taking a prolonged nap or waiting for someone to return a lost shoe," and "that magic causes as much trouble as it cures."

But the true jewel of this new edition is the enlightening and comprehensive commentary (including extensive footnotes!) by Professor Albus Percival Wulfric Brian Dumbledore, who brings his unique wizard's-eye perspective to the collection. Discovered "among the many papers which Dumbledore left in his will to the Hogwarts Archives," the venerable wizard's ruminations on the Tales allow today's readers to place them in the context of 16th century Muggle society, even allowing that "Beedle was somewhat out of step with his times in preaching a message of brotherly love for Muggles" during the era of witch hunts that would eventually drive the wizarding community into self-imposed exile. In fact, versions of the same stories told in wizarding households would shock many for their uncharitable treatment of their Muggle characters.

Professor Dumbledore also includes fascinating historical backstory, including tidbits such as the history and pursuit of magic wands, a brief comment on the Dark Arts and its practitioners, and the struggles with censorship that eventually led "a certain Beatrix Bloxam" to cleanse the Tales of "much of the darker themes that she found distasteful," forever altering the meaning of the stories for their Muggle audience. Dumbledore also allows us a glimpse of his personal relationship to the Tales, remarking that it was through "Babbity Rabbity and Her Cackling Stump" that "many of us [wizards] first discovered that magic could not bring back the dead."

Both a wise and delightful addition to the Harry Potter canon, this new translation of The Tales of Beedle the Bard is all that fans could hope for and more--and an essential volume for the libraries of Muggles, wizards, and witches, both young and old.

The Children's Voice Campaign
Children's High Level Group The Tales of Beedle the Bard is published by The Children’s High Level Group (CHLG), registered charity number 1112575, a charity co-founded in 2005 by J.K. Rowling and Emma Nicholson MEP to make life better for vulnerable children.

All net proceeds from the sale will be donated to The Children's Voice campaign.

The Children's Voice campaign is run by CHLG. It campaigns for child rights across Europe, particularly in Eastern Europe where over a million children and teenagers are growing up in institutions, often in unacceptable conditions. In most cases they are without adequate human or emotional contact and stimulation, while many only just survive without life's basics such as adequate shelter and food.

CHLG's Children's Voice campaign helps around a quarter of a million children each year through education activities; outreach work in institutions; and a dedicated telephone and email help line.

Standard Edition Product Features:
• All five fairy tales from the original The Tales of Beedle the Bard
• A new introduction by J.K. Rowling
• Illustrations reproduced from the original handcrafted book
• Commentary on each of the tales by Professor Albus Dumbledore

Vote and Choose your American Seafood Recipe

The first time I visit I was surprised by the site. This site is about American seafood cook off and there are many chefs with their recipes from all over the US compete in the contest. The site also offers many things. The offer that attracted me most is the recipe contest, which offer a trip package to New Orleans. Then I tried to vote for one of American Seafood recipe. I really hope I win the prize that is a trip to New Orleans.

I vote for “Shrimp and Andouille Cassaulet” by Chef Brian Landry from Louisiana. I choose the recipe because it is made from shrimp and I like Shrimp very much. For me, any cooking which made from or one of the ingredients is shrimp, will always taste delicious. Moreover, the steps in the recipe are easy to follow. Not only the steps, which are easy to follow, but the ingredients are also easy to find. Furthermore only a little time is needed to serve the recipe.

In addition, the recipe is using fresh Louisiana head-on shrimp that will make the cooking healthier and more delicious since shrimp has a lot of protein needed by our body. This recipe is “Louisiana seafood” cooking it will always great to try a “local recipe” but “national or even world wide taste”.

For you who love to cook and want to broaden your recipe collection on seafood just visit the site and find your favorite seafood recipe. Moreover you can have a chance of winning the trip to New Orleans prize package by voting for one of the recipe.

Breaking Dawn (The Twilight Saga, Book 4)

It might seem redundant to dismiss the fourth and final Twilight novel as escapist fantasy--but how else could anyone look at a romance about an ordinary, even clumsy teenager torn between a vampire and a werewolf, both of whom are willing to sacrifice their happiness for hers? Flaws and all, however, Meyer's first three novels touched on something powerful in their weird refraction of our culture's paradoxical messages about sex and sexuality.

The conclusion is much thinner, despite its interminable length. Everygirl Bella achieves her wishes quickly (marriage and sex, in that order, are two, and becoming an immortal is another), and once she becomes a vampire it's almost impossible to identify with her. But that's not the main problem. Essentially, everyone gets everything they want, even if their desires necessitate an about-face in characterization or the messy introduction of some back story.

Nobody has to renounce anything or suffer more than temporarily--in other words, grandeur is out. This isn't about happy endings; it's about gratification. A sign of the times? Ages 12–up. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.

Product Description

Twilight tempted the imagination. New Moon made readers thirsty for more. Eclipse turned the saga into a worldwide phenomenon. And now, the book that everyone has been waiting for....

Breaking Dawn, the final book in the #1 bestselling
Twilight Saga, will take your breath away.

About the Author
Stephenie Meyer graduated from Brigham Young University with a degree in English Literature, and she lives with her husband and three young sons in Arizona. Stephenie is the author of Twilight,New Moon, and Eclipse.

JK Rowling opposed the Distribution of the Age to the Book

The plan to group books was based on the age of her reader was opposed hard by the writer of the book of Harry Potter, JK Rowling.

Rowling has also signed a petition that refused this plan with the other famous writers, like Anthony Horowitz, Terry Prachett and Alan Garner.

The plan grouping the book was based on the age of this reader was begun when the association of the publisher of the child's book carried out the research two years ago and afterwards suggested that 86% of the consumer gave precedence to the age guidance.

They suggested the cover of the publisher's book contained the logo that showed their book was suitable for the age reader 5+, 7+, 9+, 11+ and 13+/teen.

How to make Article that was Good, Interesting and Awakened

One of my friends who was named Jonru gave several tips so that our article interesting and awakened.

In this article, he said that many questions concerning the method wrote that was good from friends who just began written. All that could be overcome with:

1. Continued to practise wrote
Don't had stopped wrote. Because wrote that as driving the car. It was increasingly high that the hour flew you, then your expertise then will increasingly good.

2. Hard-working Read
Read quality books. If our body was compared the "writer's factory", then input him - including being the reading material, and output him (or the product that was produced) was the article.
Therefore, the activity read for a writer was very important.
Our article will often be coloured by the reading material kind that was devoured by us. When you hard-working read teenlit, then you will become a writer teenlit. When you hard-working read the opinion in the newspaper, then you will become a writer of the opinion.

Was like this henceforth.

Tips above possibly was impressed very simple. But, believed! The method above when being practised seriously, sometime in the future you will find one -in fact possibly many- the startling fact.

Friday, June 6, 2008 the Most Attractive Paid Review Program

Almost two months I’m become a member SocialSpark.

Much easiest this program offered that. From the registration to payment to review that have we posting in blog/our site.

A few months ago, I wrote about SocialSpark in this blog. According to me, SocialSpark had several surpluses compared with the similar program that is in bargaining opportunity.

In SocialSpark was gotten by 3 types opportunities, which are Sponsored Post, Blog Sponsorship and Spark.

1. Sponsored Post. Like the other program, in this first choice we were required reviewing a site that was chosen by us and when being agreed to, then advertiser will pay review we this.

2. Blog Sponsorship. This second choice for me was a unique choice and was different from the other program.
When we chose the type blog sponsorship, then every time blog we were visited by the person, then a bar will emerge underneath browser and will give the explanation of details about whoever became the sponsor blog/our site on that day.
Oh, the other profit for us was blog sponsorship paid us every day.

3. Spark. This third choice was the choice that was mutually beneficial between blogger that one and that was other.
When we chose Spark, then we could reviewing blog/the site of the other person and in accordance with the agreement then the person that too would me-review blog/our site.
This third choice according to me was very beneficial to develop the popularity blog/our site.

And still many profits and other surprises that were offered by SocialSpark. I has proven, how about you?

Was curious? Just direct sign up here and proved personally.

The experience Write Non-Fiction

This article was obtained by me in the Forum for FLP Hong Kong. Hopefully helped and brightened.

Allow me to share the experience about wrote non-fiction. The experience that really personal, because I was convinced we respectively had style that was different. Hopefully continued to give the benefit.

Initially, wrote non-fiction not something that was interesting for me, because since small I more liked to read books a group Lima Sekawan, or the classic book a kind of Robin Hood and Ivanhoe, or the puppet story (this still to my hobby now, especially because the content his value of the character that was high). I just was interested better understanding the writing of non-fiction after beginning to scrutinise works naturalist a kind of David Attenborough, David Quammen, or David Stokes. That made me fall in love with their work was the simple delivery method, the way it is, but the draught thought, and strangely for me, there his beauty! Then I also afterwards tried to write works of non-fiction about natural. And because by chance I choosed in the field insects, then was insects became my fad "casualties" wrote. The uniqueness, the intensity, the insects peculiarity was completely translated by me in my works. Results of two books that were published in 1994 and 1997. There were several matters that were noted down by me for friends for the process of the writing of these works.

1. I did not know, why did I tend to use the style wrote spoke. So if being paid close attention to, all of my articles certainly said an incident with "my" leading figure as the speaker. This style most was good to be used by me, because flexible. Meaning that, I was not loaded to look for the other leading figure. I did not know, what was this style of being suitable for the writer of fiction? But for me who tried to explore the problem that was connected with nature, this speaking style was most appropriate, flexible and flowed. I remembered words of one of the editors of the big publisher who published my first book. He say that had been never that wrote with the style like that to the writer of non-fiction that his book was published by his publisher. At that time I only said, so my style, and I will never change him, because there my strength, at the same time my enjoyment. He smiled and nodded-angguk agreed. He said, I also felt the same with you, because if that your typical characteristics, that is why became your strength also.

RealRank from Izea

Had been disappointed when seeing the ranking blog you were not in accordance with the visitor's size blog you?

Confused with the calculation of the ranking that was carried out by Google PageRank or Alexa?

Now, you might not again confuse, because of having Izea Ranks. With the system RealRank that was different, Izea Ranks will count the ranking blog we in accordance with the reality.

Here, I give you a little question and answer, so you can learn about RealRank from Izea Ranks.

What is RealRank? How is it calculated?

RealRank is the first site ranking service that focuses exclusively on measuring the traffic and influence of individual blogs throughout the blogosphere. The service is designed to help advertisers analyze the relative reach of blogs and make informed online advertising purchasing decisions in the long run. RealRank aims to replace historically unreliable influence indicators such as Google PageRank, Alexa and Comscore by providing more accurate statistical data collected directly from the source.

While other services report rankings based on traffic sub-sampling, inbound links and external data, RealRank utilizes the IZEA Toolkit (ITK) to provide real visitor data collected from a piece of code blog owners embed on their blog. The data is used to define an individual blogs overall standing relative to other blogs participating in the program as well as in specific categories such as entertainment and technology.

Unlike other ranking systems, the RealRank scoring algorithm is public. The system weights blogs 70% on daily unique visitors, 20% by daily active inbound links and 10% by daily page views as reported by ITK. Participants can choose to expose just their RealRank score or expand reporting to include other data such as pageviews and visits. This provides advertisers with the most comprehensive and relevant view of a blog's ability to meet specific campaign goals. RealRank is the first site ranking service that focuses exclusively on measuring the traffic and influence of individual blogs throughout the blogosphere.

What is ROIRank?

ROIRank is another IZEA ranking system that will be launched in January 2008. ROIRank looks at the return on investment advertisers can expect to achieve on a given blog. Look for more information about ROIRank after launches.

Why do we need another site ranking?

Until today, there have been two major site ranking standards: Google PageRank and Alexa.

Google PageRank is determined based on the combination of an unpublished ranking algorithm (which rates the quality of your site based on the number of other sites linking to it) and some apparently manual overrides to that algorithm's result. PageRank is not based on real traffic, but on what Google perceives as the quality of a website as determined by a link rating algorithm and some cloudy rules. The arbitrary and unpredictable nature of this ranking system has left both bloggers and advertisers longing for accurate statistical measure.

Alexa Rank uses Alexa toolbar users' browsing activity to extrapolate a guess as to a site's actual traffic, and what percentage of Internet users are likely to visit it. While Alexa attempts to estimate traffic based on a sample, they are inaccurate and do a terrible job when it comes to sites with smaller niche audiences.

RealRank is a more accurate ranking than Alexa and Google PageRank because it isn't based on a small sample of a site's visitors or on a censored link-weighting algorithm. It's based on real traffic.

I tried to get the stats on a URL and got the error, "Site statistics unavailable." Am I doing something wrong?

If you're getting this error and you've double-checked that the URL you entered is correct, the site you are trying to track is either not in our database or has been marked as private by its owner. If it's yours, add it to your account (create an account first if you haven't already). In order to get real statistical data from a website, it must have a piece of javascript code embedded in each page that lets us track visits, pageviews, and other goodies.

How do I hide my site's statistics from the general public?

You must have an account with IZEARanks and claim your site in order to hide its statistics from the general public. Once you've completed the site claim process your privacy setting will become active.

Interseted? Just go to Izea Ranks.

The Clear Concept

Some time before, I carried out the interview with one of my friends who became the famous writer in Indonesia.

The question that was given by me around his activity as the writer and how him so that could write well.

According to him, wrote that was good that must have the clear concept. So that our book could the behaviour in the market.

Evidently, wrote not only about ourselves, but also must pay attention to the person's other wish.

I Signed Up for SocialSpark!

Still remembered with my post about the invitation from SocialSpark? At that time, several hours after I sign up, finally I was received as member SocialSpark.

For your information, SocialSpark is a Social Marketing Network that connects advertisers and bloggers through an online advertising marketplace. Advertisers are able to target blogs based on conversational topics and make cash sponsorship offers to the bloggers who publish them. Bloggers can make money by either placing display advertisements on their blog or by writing sponsored content. The sponsorships offered through the SocialSpark marketplace allow advertisers to build buzz, generate traffic and maximize social media exposure

After circling for a moment inside they website, I found several matters that were different from the other PaidReview programs, including being the Opportune system that was given. If in the other program only was one that is Sponsorship Post, then in SocialSpark was provided by three Opps choices, that be:

1. Sponsored Post
This kind was the same as the Program kind PaidReview other. We must be able to reviewing the site advertiser that we took they Opp with content that original, unique and definitely spelling as well as grammar him must be true.

2. Blog Sponsorship
This was the new kind that was offered by SocialSpark. This kind was significant blog we were made by a media by advertiser to put forward their advertisement. If we were received to receive Opp this kind, then anyone who was opened blog we will find an advertisement bar below browser that said that blog this was sponsored by advertiser this.
As your seen in this blog! :)

3. Spark Sponsorship
This was the kind that more was social, because usually without requirement especially and free.

Unfortunately, although still new and I could enter as member in the beginning they're operational, Opps that was offered often has been full by member that came from Europe or America.

Until now, just two Opps that was successful I took and the rest was in the list was waiting.

But, I believed that SocialSpark would be the greatest PaidReview in the future!

Wrote that was Easy

When I was browse on Internet about writing, I found a website that have a good article.

Title is “Wrote That Was Easy”.

How come easy? According to the author, the origin has filled the formula 5W+1H, an article indeed filled the condition as the article that filled the completeness of information. The simile built the house, we could have seen him as the appropriate house: had the foundation, the pole, the wall that formed rooms, the roof, the door and the window.

When we wrote, has been almost certain his aim wanted to be read by the other person totalling possibly. Rarely very the person write afterwards was kept personally and at one time was burnt. So that the other person wanted read, this article must attracted their interest. To make an article interesting asked many people who became our target, to need the addition of the factor again. That is magnitude — that his free translation: the attraction for many people. The article that met 5W+1H cannot attract many people read. Possibly saw his title already direct he passed.

After read his article, I totally agree with his opinion. What about you?

Start Writing and Free Wrote

I’ve written this post after make conversation with my friend.

He is a good writer that I always learn for him.

So, this is my post!

Everyone, anything his background, could write a work,
Fiction and non-fiction. Provided that he was not blind the letter. His problem is did he have the desire to write and afterwards carried him out.

If he wrote or told each incident be based on the fact that was remembered by him without the wish to guess, increased or beautified, he was a writer of non-fiction.

On the other hand, if in writing he wanted to change various matters, grew-increased, beautified him, or even created something that was new, it was available that his relations with the beginning material, he was a person the writer of fiction.

This the simple limitation that was given by the writer of this book, Josip Novakovich.

However, generally all the works of fiction were the mixture between the facts and fiction. Remained how the writer's imagination could gather him to an interesting narration.

In this case could be mentioned Pramoedya Ananta Toer, that most of his novels have a background behind the history. In his novels, Pramoedya Ananta Toer 'mengotak-atik', the history fact became the series of the narration that completely just. None was wrong regarding this.

The writer of fiction free to treat the 'fact' whatever him was appropriate with the aim that he wanted.

"Wrote the simile swam". In other words, was as clever as anything about the theory wrote, if we did not begin underlined our pen in paper, then until forever we not would be able to.

But that was the problem, why did I have difficulty very much to begin him and headed him? So I felt not in to make the work wrote scientific, because of my scientific capacity that still was very minimal.

With the problem, how to be able to head one the paper? How eliminated the feeling not all that the Self-confidence?

Capital of the foundation became the writer was:
1. Had the determination and training perseverance.
2. Had the motivation, the very strong intention, so as not lazy at practising and being not easy to lose hope.
3. Hard-working read the book and other information to increase the concept, developed the idea, and sharpened the analysis power.
4. Hard-working practised. In this case, a beginner could did "free writing" (wrote free), his theme any, including your problem about various available problems. From "free" writing with the freestyle, you could develop him to the article.
5. You practised compiled outline, namely the outline of the channel the article that will be compiled by you, beginning with intro, the identification the problem, the contents or the discussion, as far as the cover.
6. Don't be lazy did rewriting, wrote repeated draft the first article. Carry out revision in everywhere. Afterwards editing, especially the matter of grammar and the use of words.
7. Don't be lazy wrote, because that became effective means practised at the same time bring up very the self-confidence. Please was an opened news site on internet, read the news, and write your comments on their space.

Don’t shame just actions!

How to Reviewing a Book

Many times, I wrote about how to make good stories for children’s. I hope that can help you to understand definition about writing and make a good manuscript.

Now, I want to talk about how to reviewing a book.

First, reviewers should stick to reviewing the kinds of books they like. Do not try to review the kinds of books you don’t like. Trust me, its very difficult.

Second, reviews should describe what the book is like, and not just represent a visceral reaction of the reviewer.

Three, You can put a book in context relative to other work by the author is great, as long as there is clarity in doing so.

Forth, Review the book, not the author. You know why? Because we are talking about ‘Reviewing a Book’ not ‘Reviewing the author’.

Fifth, Give your objective review. Not just because the author is your friend, you reviewing the book and always give the review with the hyperbola words. It’s not fair for your readers.

A Writing Tip from Journalism Professor Peter Jacobi

This morning, I open my e-mail and found a new massage from my friend with the subject: A Writing Tip from Journalism Professor Peter Jacobi.

I want to share this e-mail to you because I think this e-mail is very good for us.

The necessity of voice—with writing we cannot ever become someone else. Yes, we can learn much from other good writers and, I guess, from bad writers, too. We can emulate the good ones, but ultimately if we are to succeed, we must discover and disclose our own voice, our own sense of style, our own particular embrace of language and information.
Consider by way of explanation, by way of definition, these words: authentic, no formulaic, rhythmic, properly detailed, nuanced, musical, magical, bone-and-sinew touching. Consider the show-verses- tell concept. Consider noun-and verb-cantered writing. Consider experiential closeness. Consider the startling, the inescapable, the visual, the conversational, and the different with a purpose. Consider the vital and the energetic. Consider writing that pulses with a heartbeat of the writer—his soul, her personality—something that cannot be duplicated because it comes from within a someone.
This tip comes from a general session given by Peter at the Highlights Foundation Writers Workshop at Chautauqua. If you'd like to learn from Peter in person, join us for the 2008 workshop. Find out more at
Please feel free to forward this e-mail to others who might want to see this writing tip.
Peter P. Jacobi is professor emeritus of journalism at Indiana University and a consultant with magazines and corporations, helping CEOs, writers, and editors learn to express their ideas more effectively. His articles have appeared in World Book, The New York Times, Highlights, and others. His two guidebooks, The Magazine Article: How to Think It, Plan It, Write It and Writing with Style: The News Story and the Feature are standard reference sources for journalists.

Fiction: Re-Writing, Translating, Adapting, and Writing Masterpiece

Sometimes, when I wish to write fiction, I rather confuse how to start it. The problem is that I frequently find, there are many kind of fiction written, start from rewriten fiction, translated fiction, adapted fiction and so on. One of my friends then told me some tips dealing with it. Below are some tips I remember:

1. Rewriting
The fiction whichis written not based on our own idea. We just re-write the story. Mostly the fictions are folklores in the society which are difficult to traced who the author is, Sangkuriang, for an example. We can re-write the folklore, ofcourse in a better version.

2. Translating
The fiction is a translation of fiction from another country of foreign fiction. For novice authors translating fiction is a good start to write a fiction. From this point they may learn so many things dealing with fiction including idea exploration. As long as the fiction has a good story and it's not published yet or is unfamiliar to he society, the publisher such as children magazine will easily accept and publish this kind of fiction.

3. Adapting
For some fiction author, they are not satisfied if the are just simply translate the foreign fiction. Hence, they are adapting the fiction from another country. For example, a fiction from China will be different in their hand. They may adapt the story and take Javanese culture as the setting, change the name of the characters and finally it become a new fiction. Therefore, the author of such fiction should honestly state the source in the new fiction.

4. Writing masterpiece
The idea of the fiction is our own idea and we are free to state our name as the author of the story. Sometimes, maybe we are not so sure with the diction, evenles if the fiction take a far away country as the setting of the fiction. To convince the publisher we may state that the fiction is original and is written based on our own idea.

Then the next question is about fiction with famous characters in it, such as Kabayan, Abunawas, and other cunning character. For those kind of fiction, the author may take it as someone's masterpiece so that they can rewrite, translate, adapt or even take it as their own masterpiece.

Fiction: The Infinite Story

In early I write, fiction charcoal is not easy work.
I cancelled sending several fiction I have written, to magazine. I think, my masterpiece is not as fanciful as existing folklore.
Afterward, I classify publicized fable based on their form, namely:
1. Folk Tale: This fiction is the form wich I like since my childhood.
In Indonesia there are so many fiction classified to folk tale. Such us Sangkuriang, Lake Toba, Malin Kundang, and so on. It seems that most of fictions in Indonesia take the origin of either name, place, or thing as their background. I my self wrote some of it, its title is "Nyi Koneng", about the origin of a very useful turmeric. It takes Pasundan or West Java as the setting.
2. Fairy Tale: This fiction tells fairy story.
To whom has read Cinderella, I'm sure it's easy to classify fiction belonging to this group. I called it miracle story. It is because in this type of fiction anything could happen. Mostly the setting of the fiction is beyond aour imagination and to create by the author. Its true that in fiction the author can create anything beyond logic as said by Khalil Gibran that children's fantasy is boundles. Their imagination can go anywhere they want to go. We should be proud as an author if our story can drive children's wild imagination.
Some authors of this type of fiction are HC Andersen, the Grim Brothers, and so on.
3. Fabels: Fictions with animals as the characters.
The kind of fiction will be more attractive with animal pictures as the character as the visualisation of the story. They are written in order to introduce children to animals world.
I have written severeal of this kind. Walt Disney is famous for making fabels. One of the famous author in Indonesia is Renny Yaniar (Ms. Kesumawijaya).
4. Contemporary Story: It's a combination of "reality story" and "miracle story". One of spectaculer story I've ever read is Pipi Si Kaus Kaki Panjang. It inspired me to write such kind of story.
5. Other types of fictions.
In Indonesia there are stories such as chronicle, Panji stories, etc. Some people state that Rome/Greek myths are also fiction.

Some tips in writing fiction:
1. Determine the type of the fiction for example: whether is it fabel or fairy tale.
2. Think the setting (place and time). To enrich Indonesian fictions/suggest to take the setting in Indonesia. It is easier because there are so many beautiful cultural background to adopt in Indonesia.
3. Then make the story plot and something to emphasize (not a must).
4. More over, to novice writer, pay a great attention to the grammar the punctuation mark, and so on. The book about grammar and the punctuation mark is cheap and easily found in the book store. :)

An Idea, Is Beginning

Free Fall Writing Story For Children

An Idea, Is Beginning

A few days ago, i make conversations in messenger with my friend, Tari. One thing which become priority to be asked is an idea.

Actually, it is cliche, and it depends on the writers. If I may share my experience, I always push to my self, my idea must be a unique one. The next question which arise is how to get it?

Then, I asked Tari to mention a thing. Anything near her. "Brooch," typed Tari.

Yup, brooch. Then I ask her again, whom do brooch use or wear by?

Yes, thats right. Women and rich people only.

If we want to tell story about brooch used by rich women, that would be not a unique idea. Then we have to twist that fact. I offering to Tari, how about if that brooch used by poor boy or bagger boy.

Definitly people will be amazed. And from that amazed, will be bring to ask which will be delved our basic idea. Why the exspensive brooch used by the little boy? Is he stolling? Or that brooch is inheritance from his mother, who was a rich women.

From here, an idea can grow up and can directions accordance with our taste. (In this case, I prefer to purpose the story to suspense/thriller stories).

If for writing short story, we don't have to depp to discovered. One more things, we can search anything which corelation with brooch. In internet, books, etc. Mybe we can find out about classification of the stone, what the different with liontin, etc....that is all can be inserted to our story.

Later, our book can be memories by the readers not only a book story but also a book science about brooch.

The ways like this too general in children books. I ever found it when I editing and translating books from Japan. But we have to improvisation, if we're not, Im affraid our story can make our reader bore.

Ok! Just that things I can share to you. Maybe you're have something different about ideas. Let's we share together!
