Ty, he said he could use paraphrasing, not all but few...I was merely showing him how to do that using my example.
on the other hand I also changed a bit of the info in the second line making it a bit different even if it may seem to be the same meaning. The second you change even the smallest of words like "started walking" rather then "walked" that changes it, making it his own. Also changing it from "the center of the road" to simply "on the road" is changing it again. Another is approaching his destination. Meaning it can be a whole road completely. :P No one can say for certain if that boy was on that same road as stated or not. Room for argument either way :P
You can always use the idea simply change the words so that it sounds more original. for example, if it says: "The boy walked to the center of the road yet turned back while reconsidering his path." You change that to: "The boy started walking on the road, as he was approaching his destination, he decided to turn back and rethink his route."
Saying what may have been written only using your words to express the same context making it more original yet meaning the same!
hope that helps.
If you're writing about a book that someone else wrote and you are only allowed to use a few quotes and paraphrases, you must cite your resources when you do so. Otherwise, you will have to write about the book in your own words from your own thoughts and feelings on it. Making short summaries about parts of the book when you're answering questions or writing a review is a great way to get it going.
What do you mean write from a book? I assume it's a paper you're writing. It's supposed to be your own words. Quotations and paraphrases are basically copying someone elses work. Write what you think. Talk about stuff you know.
You will just have to reach in your own brain for some creativity.
Temptress, that is called paraphrasing...
it was a good example thank you.
