New Manners for New Times

I would like to write about etiquette. Even, "the Queen of Etiquette," Letitia Baldrige, admits that new times request new manners. There are manners in the workplace, with clients and fellow employees and there are business ethics protocol in customer services.
There are traditional commonsense polite business behavior and it is good to know and follow them.
A good team member works on wining respect and loyalty, and this does not happened overnight. This required efforts, and it pays off and a great value to you and the team.
Specially, when you are nineteen, you cannot apply at work the bully rules that you picked up at your high school. Be nice to people on the top and on the bottom job scale in your working environment! Never criticize your boss or "rat" on anyone (unless that person is a drug dealer or steals.) Never profile or talk behind the back. After all, the boss will evaluate your working performance and will give you recommendations for your future professional career.
Keep promises and add value to your personality. Use humor. (If you do not have one, work on one.)

At the end of 2009, the use of craft increased the context of creativity. The growing number of contemporary artists are using hand craft by incorporated in their work methods and materials traditionally associated by craft. It is both unique and economical. The Creative Branch was born in 1970s and made the emphasis on personal experiences rather than on a collective social message.

Narrative Skills

To tell a story you need good narrative skills. To describe things, happenings, and events are major power points of telling a good story. The best practice is to tell and retell your stories. This is a common way to improve personal literacy skills.
Information literacy overall has many components, and, as usual, brushing up on the narrative skills is one of them.
Narrative skills are important in preparing for descriptive detail writing. To tell a good story is a key element for a successful book from different points of view from reading choices to publishing your own stories.

1st of November and the 100st Post

Here is my first 100 post anniversary. Time fly fast!
I still have the enthusiasm as the Greeks would say "en Theo." I still keep posting opinions, facts, and information. I am keeping on reading and writing and, the exiting of the topic-of-the-moment makes me to exercise the art of rhyming. The essential part to stay positive and focused in delivering the messages. And here, let me start again!

What is NaNoWriMo?

National Novel Writing Month happens every November, from 1st to 30!
It is a fun, seat-of-your-pants novel writing event where the challenge is to write an entire novel in just 30 days. That means participants begin writing November 1 and must finish by midnight, November 30. The word-count goal for our adult program is 50,000 words.
It should be very rewording! Let's try! Writing friends, come on on board!
