I always include a cover letter in my applications. It helps to demonstrate genuine interest in a position when you write a cover letter that is tailored to the specifics of the job. Even if employers don't read it or just skim over it, the fact that it's there is an advantage in itself.
02/24/2017 at 14:59
Just ran a hiring process, and almost every one of the applicants included a cover letter. I'd wondered too. It does help if they include the right job and the right organization though.

I used to like this quote, but now I am more like "don't compare your chapter 20 to someone else's chapter 20, because you're two different stories."
Everybody is unique, no story is written twice.

As a foreign speaker of English, I'm always so shocked at these types of articles, cause in most of the cases mentioned, I use the correct terms/words, and this is where I find out that all these incorrect uses exist. Afterwards I try to forget them because I don't want to get them mixed up in my brain :D

Greek word, deriving from noun onoma< όνομα (=name) + verb poio < ποιώ (=make, create). So onomatopoeia means the act to make names. In Ancient Greek, there was a motto saying "αρχή σοφίας η των ονομάτων επίσκεψις". That means that philosophy starts with considering the names of things.

I have close to 20 novellas on Amazon and some of them were easy, while others were nightmares to edit. The times I self edited as I wrote created terrible drafts. Better were the stories I wrote at full speed, like an angry painter I threw my story onto a page, and you know what? Editing was a breeze because the story was direct and raw.

This is a seriously bias article in many ways. From the small number of lol players I've dealt with, and the number I've heard about from others, they are some of the most toxic players around, and the even fewer I've met in person, are often very on edge, and quick to get angry.

I always try to do that, writing as plainly as possible. Unfortunately, there are people who are still clueless about what I'm writing. Because of this, they fuss at me. No, they are not stupid. I'm not trying to be mean. It just hurts. Do you understand what I mean?

How unpresidential! As Orwell notes, political writing is deliberately constructed to be euphemistic so as to defend the indefensible.
