POB: Favourite Article of The Day 010


Another day happily spent reading some great content in the #pob community, there is always something for everyone, there are some purely formatted or presented pieces, but with good information of interest to share.

This helped me to form my choice for the #faotd, by providing feedback that would help some creators to improve their creations by learning to format and present their work in a way that will be more pleasing on the eye, "YES" it takes a little more time but can be much more rewarding when you know you are creating content to the fullest of your potential.

I'm on vacation this week. So will try to keep up but might miss a day here and there! My favorite article today is this one on the creativity of our brains where author @hranhuk shares his creative process and how he gets his brain to become more creative.
I chose it because I am always in awe of what humans are capable of doing. Currently during my vacation we organize a festival every year with a group of friends (tiny tiny festival) but the fact that each year we manage to build a stage, set up a festival and come up with new ideas never ceases to amaze me! #dcc #faotd

A really nice article and possibly something every creative writer understands, writing in itself is not hard, but coming up with unique and original spell bounding story's is.

A handful of exceptional writers can at times make this look easy, it takes dedication hard work and a very organised mind.

That being said I believe everyone is capable of writing a book and achieving success, with the right understanding of layout and procedure which can be thought. Nice article thanks for dropping in.

Hope you are enjoying your vacation

thanks for your mention

It's very gratifying for me to know that my post touches people in some way or that it's interesting to read.

I'm happy for that

My #faotd was an article by alekst7 The Wisdom of the Unknown It examines the stages of insight leading to a Eureka moment and explores the idea of Eureka from both an intellectual and a spiritual perspective. Well crafted, well researched, informative and balanced article. I thoroughly enjoyed it! Very insightful. Highly recommend...and it happened to win WOTW too! #faotd #dcc

Wow a really long one from @alekst7 but worth the effort, a great article with a very dedicated, well researched understanding of the word Eureka, I can see why it won the WOTW.

Sometimes showing an insightful understanding of a topic or in this case word, pays dividends as we are able to construct a realistic and in this case rounded view of our own thought process.

This clearly shows a proof of brain.

Congrats to myself, I hope more people get to know about this initiative and have fun with it also.

My Favorite Article of The Day is the post titled Genuine Affection - What True Love Is And What It Isn't written by @finetune30

The exposition in this article is so commendable and so detailed, I was attracted from the title to the body and till the end of the article. She shared different ways to keep a true love alive.

And of course she shared what true love isn't along side what true love is. Her points fall in place and I couldn't agree more with her when she mentioned some characteristics to keep true love.

I may not have enough to say but check it out to confirm the professionalism of this article.

Unfortunately I was unable to include this article in Today's contest as there has been a dispute as to it's originality, with referencing material showing the post was reproduced word for word.

This is by no means a reflection on you as it can be an easy thing to read something for the first time and believe it was an original post.

Posted via proofofbrain.io

It's fine, I understand. I'll try to participate in the next one then

That would be great, I am sorry this has happened but copied material is frowned upon, I look forward to seeing you in the comments participating.
