Write a 250-word opinion piece on the lifecycle of cicadas. The audience for the article is nature lovers who are interested in insects, and the tone should be informative and interesting.

Draft generated by Grammarly:
As we approach the emergence of Brood X cicadas this spring, it’s important to take a closer look at the lifecycle of these fascinating insects. Cicadas, known for their loud buzzing calls, spend most of their lives underground before emerging as adults for a brief period of time.

Cicadas spend anywhere from 2 to 17 years underground, depending on the species, in a state known as “nymphs.” During this time, they feed on sap from tree roots and undergo several molts as they grow larger. Once they reach maturity, they tunnel upward and emerge from the ground, leaving behind their exoskeletons. 

As adults, cicadas have a brief life span of just four to six weeks. They use their loud calls to attract mates and lay eggs in tree branches. The female cicada uses her ovipositor to make small incisions in the bark and lay her eggs. Once the eggs hatch, the young cicadas drop to the ground and burrow underground to begin their own lifecycle. 

Despite their short lives, cicadas play an important role in their ecosystem. They provide a source of food for birds, mammals, and other insects. Their tunneling also helps to aerate the soil and improve soil quality.

While the emergence of cicadas can be a nuisance for some, it’s important to appreciate the unique lifecycle of these insects and their role in the natural world. So, keep an eye out for these fascinating creatures and take a moment to appreciate their brief but important time above ground.

For busy parents, a good cup of coffee is essential to starting our day on the right foot. But did you know that your coffee maker could be harboring harmful bacteria? Cleaning your coffee maker is important for maintaining the quality and safety of your morning brew. Here’s a step-by-step guide on the best way to clean your coffee maker.

  1. Begin by unplugging your coffee maker and letting it cool down completely.
  2. Remove any coffee grounds and filters from the machine.
  3. Fill the water reservoir with equal parts white vinegar and water.
  4. Turn on the coffee maker and run a brewing cycle. Let the mixture run through the machine until the reservoir is empty.
  5. Discard the vinegar solution and rinse the water reservoir thoroughly with water.
  6. Fill the reservoir with fresh water and run another brewing cycle to rinse the machine.
  7. Repeat the rinsing process until the vinegar smell is completely gone.
  8. Finally, wipe down the exterior of the coffee maker with a damp cloth and let it dry completely.

Cleaning your coffee maker at least once a month will ensure that your machine is free of harmful bacteria and producing the best-tasting coffee possible. By following these simple steps, you’ll be able to enjoy your morning cup of joe with peace of mind, knowing that your coffee maker is clean and safe.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are examples of different types of articles?

There are a wide variety of article types. Common examples include news articles, academic and research articles, how-to articles, blog features, and opinion pieces.

How do you write an article summary?

A summary is a high-level overview of the main elements in your article. To write one, start by identifying the key ideas that make up your article, along with the important details that support those points, and weave that into a brief narrative that your audience can quickly read through.

How do you write the title of an article?

The title of your article should be concise, descriptive, and give your readers a clear idea of what your article is about and why they should want to read it.

How do you write an article pitch?

If you’re pitching an article, your goal should be to catch an editor’s interest and sell them on your story. To do this, it’s important to be upfront with your pitch to ensure it doesn’t get missed. If you’re pitching your article via email, include your story topic in the subject line, along with a short description of your story, a potential title, your hook (the reason it’s a compelling topic worth publishing), a link to writing samples, and your contact information.

How do you write an article abstract?

An abstract serves as a brief, high-level summary of a research article, and helps readers quickly understand what the article is about and whether or not they should read further.

To write an academic abstract, think about your article through the lens of five key elements: an introduction to the topic studied; the purpose, or problem you are trying to solve; your research methods and approach; a summary of your key findings; and an explanation of why your key findings are relevant.

How long does it take to write an article?

How long it takes to write an article depends on what kind of article you’re writing. For example, a short how-to article can be written quickly, whereas a research article is something that could take days, weeks, or even months to complete.

Why are citations an important element of writing an academic article?

Citations are essential to avoid plagiarism. Anytime you use an idea that's not your own, whether you're quoting or paraphrasing, you need to credit the original source using a citation style, such as APA, MLA, or Chicago. The type of citation you should use depends on your course of study and your professor's requirements. For more information, see our citation page.

What is fact-checking, and why is it a critical step in writing an article?

Fact-checking refers to ensuring the information in an article—like key names, dates, facts, etc.—is accurate. It is a critical step to accomplish before publishing to prevent spreading false information and potentially damaging the credibility of yourself, the publication you’re writing on behalf of, or the parties referenced in your article.

What is an AI article writer, and should I use one?
