Ronnie Sowell, AKA resspenser, masters the most difficult of all copywriting genres: Telling stories with words.

Study these words and phrases taken from resspenser's hub,
"How old?" Detective Carl Hardin thought he heard the woman from Child Protective Services correctly, but still......
"Six months," Jane Audry said. She pulled her black frame glasses down on her nose and looked at the report in her hands. "Well technically, six months and ten days."
The detective division was upstairs in the old white concrete building that housed the Lancaster, S. C. Police Department in the winter of 1976.
A mug of cold coffee sat on the corner of his desk.
"In The Ghetto" played softly from a small radio on a bookshelf crammed with police supply catalogs, law books and training manuals."

Ronnie is a master novelist; a painter of sorts. Can you not see and possibly taste that "mug of cold coffee?"
Are you able to hear Elvis' voice once more as "In The Ghetto" played softly from a small radio on a bookshelf crammed with police supply catalogs, law books and training manuals?"
Although he ranks #5 on my short list of "My Top 5 HubPages Writers", he is a feasible prospect for #1 honors.
"Life is messy and beautiful. It’s full of so much. I am passionately curious. I want to experience as much as I can. I want to make a difference and expect to make a difference. I want the world to amaze me and disgust me. I am different because I live in this world. The world is different because I live here. We all make a difference. The world is both our canvas and sometimes it’s the brush. We paint, and sometimes we are the painting. Enjoy the magnificence of your life journey."
From the hub: "What Do You Want To Be When You Grow Up?"I Are We Asking the Right Questions? copyright 2013 by: rebekahELLE
As you read this intimate word collection, one senses a deep love of life, and an overwhelming drive to make it better.
Read this passage taken from "The Parisian Women Are (almost) Effortlessly Chic" copyright rebekahELLE
"I was walking with my Parisian friend to the crepes cafe and she had her hair pulled back into a low ponytail. As she was walking and talking, she looked over at me and pulled the hair tie out of her hair, and viola, there it was again. She shook her hair out over her shoulders and I thought, damn, these women don't even try and they are so sexy (and no, I am completely heterosexual!). Their CHICness is in their manner, the way they carry themselves, their nonchalance, their intelligence, their classic attire, their natural allure, expecting to be noticed but not showcasing any one thing. It's the whole package."
If one enjoys reading in-vogue, stylish articles, rebekahELLE is your 5 star writer!
Starting from hub titles ranging from "How I Planned My Wedding In A Month for Under $1000" to her poem, "I Can't Do It", prairieprincess is a nicely balanced, rounded writer. She knows a great deal surrounding life's daily struggles, then again, she is able to be pragmatic in her choice of subjects.
Contrast the phraseology between excerpts of "How I Planned My Wedding In A Month for Under $1000" and "I Can't Do It."
"I had long envisioned a wedding with simply a barbeque in the backyard. Since our wedding was in March, the out door cooking was out but we ended up with something very similar. My sister's brother-in-law brought a big pan of delicious pulled pork.
To that, we added another meat dish, salads, and some Indian fry bread. Indian fry bread is a traditional dish done by the Siksika people and many other bands in Canada.I had asked my sister's sister-in-law to make it, in order to incorporate some of the Aboriginal culture. You see, I had grown up being very close to First Nations people, and my husband Is an Aboriginal man that had been adopted into a Caucasian family. It seemed appropriate that we have an element of the Native culture in our day, for it was a deep bond that we shared together.
Takeaway: You don't have to spend thousands of dollars on catering. Here are some ideas:" copyright 2013 by praireprincess
I can't do it...
The voice cries out
Again and again
I can't do it...
Haunts her days
And then her nights
I can't do it...
A block is thereThat stops her flow.
There's no rhyme
There's no reason
Just an endless seige
Of not believin'
It stops this girl
From really dealing... .

Without a doubt, prairieprincess merits peak praise and a significant spot on the Top 5.
Positioning izettl in the number two post presented a dilemma, as she is truly deserving to occupy the number one position.
Izettl is bold and fearless in her choices of hub subject matter. Have a look at a few of those headings:
- "Kissing 101: Everything You Need to Know About Lip-locking"
- "An Educated Talk About Guns and Our Worst Enemy"
- "One-night Stands; Was it as good for you as it was for me?"
A masterful writer, izettl is able to manage these potentially explosive topics with candor and color.
Check out her choice of words as they apply to one night stands:
"Apparently there is certain etiquette involved when engaging in a one-night stand. Unbeknownst to me that there was a polite way of hopping in the sack last minute with someone you barely know. Perhaps it falls into the discussion one has while frantically unzipping zippers and tripping on that damn sock that won't budge off your foot.
But yes, there are how to's involved; two consenting adults who establish and understand the perimeters/boundaries of the relationship. Be safe in regards to using protection and for ladies you may want to let someone know where you're at or have a back-up plan. Don't forget to thank your partner for a lovely evening- I'm actually joking about this, but it would be polite. Also don't forget all your clothes and belongings because you may not see that person again and if you forgot something...awkward."

If a writer who is unafraid to tackle edgy subjects is your 'type of writer' choice, then choose izettl . . . Guaranteed to never disappoint!
#1 Mark Ewbie
Upon finishing my first Mark Ewbie-authored article, I was sold. This man, without a doubt, is blessed with an overdose of a special DNA molecule connected to a superior copywriting gene.
Mark can say more with four words than most writers could put across in sixteen. For more defined clarification, Mark draws stick figures - a lot of them - tactically placed in his every posted article.
Mark Ewbie, as one would expect maintains a giant, loyal fan club . . . deservedly so! In this writer's mind, Mark Ewbie is the most gifted and accomplished HubPages' writer I've discovered, to date.
Following, is his HubPages profile:
I write stuff. I draw stuff.
I hope that these articles are useful, entertaining or funny.
If they provide something to the visitor then I am happy.
To be honest - I am happy writing and drawing anyway. It's a fun hobby.
