"This is part of quote. The first line must be interesting or catching, and I'm prety sure quote is the best choice." 
— Enjel Hutasoit


The content of prolog consist just one or two paragraphs. Simple. Too much paragraph on prolog makes your reader boring. Prolog is shorter than body of article, but it doesn't mean it's not important. I always take special attention to create a prolog. What for? Of course to make my reader keep reading till the end of the article. Yes, I know that I've said the quote took that responsibilities before. But, you know what, if you ask me: "When you decided to stop reading an article?" I diffinately answer you: "Anytime, when I bored with that long journey text." So, why you ever though to make some part of your article not important?" Think twice, gen-Y!


Body is all what you want to say. There's no limitation. Some article provides 15-20 paragraphs, another just 3-5 paragraphs. So, it's up to you. which one you think can explain your purpose clearly. Yap! When you want to tell your reader about how to make English Breakfast Tea, maybe 3-5 paragraphs is good enough. But, when you want to explain how our digesty system working on these English Breakfast Tea, you need more paragraph. So, it's really flexible. I can say, you can do anything on your article. There's no rules. The rules just for followers not for you, Gen-Y.

Since there is no rules, you must have another rule that made by yourself. "WHAT? What for? You just said the rule only for follower and now you say again I need another rule and maybe tommorow you gonna say again I should..." (Ok stop!) If you ask these questions, well in your mind, I want you to watch my words carefully. Look, the last thing I said about rule is not the rule that made by people out there but the rule of yours. The rule that made by yourself. You know what is that mean? It means it's no longer a rule but it's a way (specific way) of how your article has made. It's characteristic of your article. ID of your article, then when people read your article, they will say "this is written by you." Is that cool? You always cool, gen-y!

So, what is my rule? I repeat, "my rule" not yours. As you read on FAQ page, I told you that I need about 1000 words on my article so that it can explain my purpose and data. A quarter article tells my data, anoter 3/4 part tells my purpose. Where is the calculation comes from? Just comes out from my head. As you know, my blog totally talks about Generation-Y or millennials. I need data to support my argument. My argument needs 500-700 words to tell about itself. About 300 words for data, 500-700 words for argument and all about that. I believe 1000ish words is a good proportion for an article with data.

Next, let’s talk about inside of content. I mean messaging. I know and I am sure you know this too. Data can be used for anything we want. ‘Anything’ in this terms as a tool that can does both a positive and negative impact. Now I have a question for you, “which one would you chose? A positive or negative?” I believe everyone would say “I chose a positive one.” And I hope that ‘everyone’ would do as they say. Someone told me, “In the world you can do anything, be good.” The good in all terms, include in your writing.

What is a good writing? It’s so relative when we talk about something ‘good’. Some people said it’s not good to talk actively to old man, you need to watch your word. But another one says it’s would be good for young to speak all their idea, so the old one can give a proper advices. Now, what do you say about it? I believe both of them is a good one. Why? Cause a good thing is all thing that brings another good thing. When you write an article, then your article brings value and perspective for someone to take action doing a good thing, your article is a good one. What is the good thing? It’s beyond where you live in, who you live with, what your live for.

Ok, welcome to the last point of articles body. I think it must be put on the 3rd or 4th paragraph, but It still ok put this on the last paragraph. Why? Cause we will talk about “DATA”. The data can places on anywhere of your article. But, you can’t take a data from anywhere. You must take it from a credible and accurate sources. Where is that? You can use data include a survey or statistic from goverment site and another site that use actively someone who trusted. Then you chose again, which one makes you think trusted. Again and again, the hard part of your work just how to chose the best from the best. Make your best choices, Gen-Y.


Hello, hello, hello. Hello from the outside, Adele!
I mean, hello from the conclution part, Gen-Y. The purpose of this paragraph is to make your reader remember all of the text or article that they've been read. Just write one or two paragraphs. But now I just write one paragraph (well, an half paragraph).

Oh, ya! Once again, although this paragraph took on the end of your article, remember to keep all of your text important, so your readers will keep watching you! I mean, watching your text. I mean, reading your text. Oke, stop! Happy writing!


I think you don't need any explain about this part. (I still need it!) Ok, calm down. (Who did shout out to you?!) None, but your exclamation mark (!) indicated that someone has shout out on my ears! Well, let's stop it.

So, this is my rule for me. I write all my article is based on data. Since the data is not mine, so I need put the credit of my sources data. Then there will be no plagiarism in your article. Be original, Millenals!
