    Writer's BlockIt's 1: 27 on a Sunday morning and I've been sitting in front of my computer for about forty minutes.

    705 words
    I believe that The Perfect Storm is a better that "The Wreck of the Hesperus", because the action was more intense, the writer explained the characters more, and the story was longer. A strength of "The Wreck of the Hesperus" is that the poem had good form. Another strength is that it was short. A strength of the poem is that is was pretty suspenseful, but not as suspenseful as The Perfect Storm. A weakness of "The Wreck of the Hesperus" was that the poem was a little hard to understand because...
  • Drug Addiction Alcohol Drugs People
    260 words
    Everyone makes mistakes in their life. Some people more than others, depending on who you are. I like to think one of the reasons why people stick together is to help each other out when they are in trouble. It is truly sad to see that this writer is too selfish to help those in need. One of the things that I noticed most about this article, is that the writer mentioned that he / she was sick of these heroic stories of people getting out of drugs, and that it was their fault for getting into it ...
