LYN LIFSHIN
Earthquake Lights
crystals in certain rocks spit out electricity under high pressure as in earth quakes. Clear, circles, triangular in shape: white, yellow, red and blue. A routine thing now. Just before the earthquake, the bottom of the sea in Izmit went red and the temperature went up 44-55 degrees. But there were no under water volcanoes. Starting two days before the quake, hundreds of fish, crabs and other sea life forms died not naturally. Somehow, they were burned, fish nets were scorched and burned. Rocks and stones went black. There were fireballs, strange lights. Some say they saw an explosion under the sea. Fire balls, strange lights startling as a car perched on the roof of a three story building swept 1500 feet inland, smashing every house in its path to splintered pulp

LYN LIFSHIN's poetry, TSUNAMI AS HISTORY, will appear as the poetryrepairs.com 12.02 issue next month.

Writing Articles for the Internet - Five Tips

Even if you are a quality writer, writing articles for the internet is quite different than writing in other forms. When writing for the internet, articles must be written in a way that anyone can easily understand and enjoy them. Online content articles are used for websites, online ezines, newsletters, and more. With a few great tips to help you out, you can make your internet writing effective, whether you are writing for yourself or someone else.

Tip #1 - Clearly State the Topic

The first thing you must do if you are going to write for the web is to clearly state the topic in your articles. This is the job of your opening paragraph. Not only do you need to clearly state the topic, but you must also hook your reader at this point. If you are not clear about the topic and you don't do something to hold their attention, more than likely you will lose the reader and they will click on to another article for the information they are seeking.

Tip #2 - Keep Material Well Organized

Another important tip to remember when writing articles for the internet is to keep material well organized. Consider the points you want to cover within the article and then figure out how to portray them in an organized manner. Often using bullet points and numbers will help to organize the material and make it easy for readers to read.

Tip #3 - Talk to the Reader

Make sure that you talk "to" the reader in your articles, not at them. The goal of web content is to make it seem like you are directly speaking to the reader. Readers should feel as if you are simply having a conversation with them. Keep the style simple, write at a level that anyone can easily understand, and make your readers feel comfortable with you.

Tip #4 - Avoid Huge Blocks of Text

It's definitely important to avoid huge blocks of text when writing articles for the web. Keep paragraphs fairly short. Big blocks of text will look daunting to online readers and they will probably move on without even taking the time to look at your article. Instead of big blocks of text, use shorter paragraphs, bullet points, numbered lists, and more to communicate the material within the article.

Tip #5 - Provide Quality Information

Last, you need to ensure that you provide quality information within the article you write. Readers should feel that they have learned something when they finish your article. If you write articles without solid information that they can use, you will quickly lose the trust of your reader.

Writing articles for the internet is a bit different than other types of writing, but it is a writing style that can be easily learned. Keep these simple tips in mind and you will ensure your web writing is interesting and effective.

AVERIL BONES
My Lover Waved from a Train
In these parts, it is customary to swim, and I was walking on concrete to sand. Before I had even smelled the ocean but was still caged by traffic, and roads, my lover waved from a train. I smiled, and waved gaily in return until the train swung its rattling boxes, and flipped its loud metal tail in reply to my laughter. Strolling past strangers, I could not hold my face from beauteous smile reflected, at some location, I'm sure, by his.
