'The scene was set before the Moon was seen;
Each twilight hour rendered the bliss they’d missed
On lanes of a town that lay well between
Two rivers now dry, thanks to rains dismissed.
Today the band was to laugh, rejoice, play
En route to the hills that in the north lay.'

'Lightnings of fury and pain
Were flung to burn a painful hole
Through its joyful core.
They kept pricking it,
Trying their best to cause- destruction;
But it wasn't built to shatter.'

Author Ann Wuehler admits she has not been writing as much as she normally does. Speaking to The Literary Juggernaut in an exclusive interaction, the quinquagenarian, who is currently residing in Eastern Oregon, close to the Snake River and Hells Canyon, says she almost always sets herself on a schedule to break free of the general hopeless malaise coupled with impotent fury. ‘I try to start writing or doing something ‘writerly’, such as submissions, by nine every morning. I try to make it a habit,’ she begins, adding that she has lately been wanting to write, which she asserts is a good sign. ‘I have stayed up late into the night writing at times, of course. Or jumped into it nearly as soon as I woke up, eager to continue. It depends. On mood, on time, on if the project is due or just something for me,’ she explains.

Subject-verb agreement is a grammatical concept according to which there must be a formal agreement or concord between the subject of a sentence (which can be a noun or pronoun) and its verb. In layman terms, the speaker or writer must ensure that the verb agrees with the subject in number and person and that a cordial agreement between the two exists in person, number, and tense.

'The knight that night with might set right
Each plight of men with tempers frayed;
The men then penned their thoughts then light
And journeyed to far lands as aides.
Each land did stand each hand they had;
Sun tanned their bright and chiseled forms;
When time was ripe to slay the bad,
They were no less than ruthless storms.'

'Conditionals allow you to express a wide range of scenarios. You can talk about an event that is unlikely to take place with the help of a conditional. Similarly, you can use conditionals to talk about purely imagined scenarios or hypothetical situations. You can also use conditionals to talk about something likely to happen in the future.'

When Morning and Night met again that day
To greet the ocean of marred, frozen milk,
I bade adieu to Ball of Fire to bilk
The shadows that had wrecked my life, my stay;
And like a caged bird hoping hard to say
That blank cheque is better than food, its ilk,
I willed days when I’d freely hit the silk
And nights when I’d know I’m on the right way.

But my bound mind did maim my heart and soul,
Ensuring Light of Wisdom was unseen;
And even as I yearned to be loved, whole,
Became I gory and unholy, mean.
Well, my vision was obscured, so was goal;
Thus, found was I ‘lying’ with a changed mien.

Author DL Link began writing when he was young, and like a lot of other authors, he took time off for his career and family. In an exclusive interaction with Vatsarah Stavyah, editor-in-chief of The Literary Juggernaut, the forty-three-year-old author, who lives in Northern California, says he happened to return to writing eight years ago, starting with writing exercises and short stories.

The passionate writer, who edits for Gold Man Review, a literary journal based on the west coast, lets us know that he knew quite well that writing was for him when he was a kid. ‘I wrote over a hundred pages of a sci-fi novel on a typewriter when I was fourteen. It took until I was older before I had the patience and the fortitude to do it and stick with it,’ he shares with us.

'Embolism, spiral and residue,
Crepuscules, pinnacle pentacle tentacle.
When the surge breaks and births
mirk monsters,
Glinting in Poseidon’s trident,
The slow knotted crippled mandible
approaches
The long night of knives wet.'

Fallow farrow in the narrows;
The gulls herald their blows in dire trumpeting,
Broken neck birds crying circling necrosis.

'Author Robert Stubblefield started writing around the age of ten. As a matter of fact, he began composing poems at the time as a way to cope with the loss of his grandmother. Speaking exclusively to The Literary Juggernaut, the twenty-eight-year-old American author and poet, who is currently residing in Maryland, the US, says poetry has always helped him express his feelings towards the world around him. Emphasising that he usually writes when he has the urge to pen down his thoughts and whenever he feels low, Mr Stubblefield, who holds a bachelor’s degree besides two master’s degrees, says he composes poetry so he may articulate the deepest of his thoughts in ways he cannot do when he happens to be speaking.'

In leading what you’re leading – gruesome life;
You think not of superb acts dropped
Before you say the thoughts that stay well popped
Until slain is the mental strife!
And goodness goes on to stand sadly done.'

'Also, what makes English different from other languages is its complex vocabulary coupled with the rigid subject-verb-object order. Learners and those looking forward to bettering their existing level of English need to note that very many English words have more than one meaning, with a few having more than two hundred meanings and many commonly used words (like have, do, go, etc.) possessing over fifty meanings!'

On his birthday he drank some sauce, and happy he was with no loss.
His mother said at twelve exact, ‘twenty seven you are, a fact.’
And then a call he came across; his girl to him said, ‘Come across!’
What he then did you might know of, to girl’s he soon went with a cross.
To her he said, ‘You are my boss.’

The words ‘ballad’ and ‘ballade’ are often used interchangeably primarily because speakers, sometimes even native English speakers and teachers of the English language, assume they mean the same – a narrative poem. The fact, nonetheless, is different.
