When using the word 'half' as an ADJECTIVE it's either a closed word, e.g.halfhearted or hyphenated, e.g. half-baked, NEVER an open compound. #writing

Adjective say: Which one? What kind? How many? An INFINITIVE functioning as an ADJECTIVE will do the same, e.g. “Four Doors Open is the book to read” http://buff.ly/1lTR0Gd --"to read" modifies "book" - it describes which book is being recommended.

When an INFINITIVE functions as a NOUN it is called a DIRECT OBJECT. In the sentence, "Everyone wants to #write ", the infinitive 'to write' is the DIRECT OBJECT of the verb 'want'. ?What does everyone want? They want 'to write'.

Be creative in #writing_use LIVELY LANGUAGE. Try moth eaten_Neolithic_passé_prehistoric_quaint_vintage vs "old"

My tip to remembering How To Hyphenate Age: When I'm using the singular form I hyphenate, e.g. ten-year-old girl, fifty-five-year-old building. When I use the plural No Hyphens, e.g. a girl ten years old, the building was fifty-five years old. (We write & hyphenate numbers between twenty-one & ninety-nine) #writingwednesday

How is it we become fascinated with the most ordinary everyday items?  As girls, we sisters understood our appearance was vital to our mother's prettiness-eye.  We were taught to groom our eyebrows to ensure not one random hair needed to be plucked.  Today, it feels more like a battle than a beauty routine.  Enjoy!
