Brand Ambassador beBee, Inc.truly reflects nature's wisdom @Ali Anani, of high value for everyone who reads it.23/03/2017 #17 Franci🐝Eugenia HoffmanThank you so much for the mention, @Ali Anani. I believe life moves in waves and as we ride those waves, we experience what I refer to as life events. Some life events are pleasant and some are not so pleasant. But that's the way waves do their work by carrying us to different places in life and helping us grow.
Personally, I experienced several life-changing events, which some were not so pleasant. However, I was confident that the next wave would carry me through to becoming a stronger person because of it. I still believe life works that way.23/03/2017 #15 John RylanceMe too Ali. Your remark re waves in the sand somehow made me think of the river flowing over pebbles creating little waves and the sounds that prompted the phrase by a babbling brook. One of my favourite places to be, particularly if I'm sitting in a shady nook alongside the stream. #1423/03/2017 #14 Ali Anani#13 Thank yo @John Rylance- yes, two great examples of waves. These are fingerprints we see on sand. I like it. SUrely, this is a great example. As for the bombers, yes they are examples of waves, but what waves they are? I would rather enjoy the waves drawn in sand.
I greatly appreciate your comment, John.23/03/2017 #13 John RylanceFantastic post. Wave upon wave of imagery.
As always your post set me thinking. In this case the part played by the wind in creating wave patterns i e in sand dunes, the snow, even the dust.
The other image was of wartime and the wave upon wave of bombers on their way to targets or the infantrymen storming an emplacement.
The positive and negative aspects of the energy created by wave patterns.23/03/2017 #12 Ali AnaniSheer beauty your words are @Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMA. I loved it all and I felt like I am riding a wave while reading it. Changes are waves- what a beautiful image this is! Equally I enjoyed your saying change causes waves that "move" us for lng times. When we go in a trough we may "spin out" of control and this is the challenge we face. I aimed my post to highlight this point. I enjoyed greatly your ending lines and in particular our failure to put on our thinking caps. Bravo for writing a great comment my friend.23/03/2017 #11 Jean L. Serio CPC, CeMAI do believe your comment "Life is about waves" is absolutely true. One decision we make can stimulate a variety of changes (waves) upon which we must act to move forward or stall out; which we may not consider at the time the decision is made. Many times a decision or two made may continue to roll over (causing waves) in our lives in barely discernable ways for years. On the other hand waves may suddenly arise and lift us up and allow us to 'go with the positive flow'; or take us down, cause us to 'spin out' or lose control. All of which will force us to discover new options for flowing with them or taking unique actions to manage and discipline those waves to meet our own needs and goals. Once again, Ali, you've 'hit it out of the park'; causing us to put our thinking caps on and reconsider life using what surrounds us, daily, but which can be easily forgotten as potentially affecting our lives. Bravo!23/03/2017 #10 Ali Anani#9 More intriguing is your response @Harvey Lloyd. I loved your comment and its sensibility. Like a wave I felt the flow of your comment. This part alone is worthy writing the buzz for me "If data or observation tells us that the trough is the beginning of something new why would we look upon the trough as a bad place to be and require assistance to get out"?
Yes, a trough is not an easy place to be, but as you explained, it is the emerging from the trough that make success more valuable and enjoyable.
Yes, we stay in a trough when we lose faith, persistence, creativity and endurance. we surf in waters that are wavy and we should understand that a trough is destined to be followed by a crest- unless we get drowned in the trough.
Great comment which I enjoyed immensely.23/03/2017 #9 Harvey LloydI found the post interesting, especially as it applies to one of your final statements, "Life moves in waves and when we feel desperate and fall in the trough we should remember it is this trough that shall eventually push us up to the crest."
I read a lot about the trough and "why" you are there, along with how to get out in five simple steps. In review of many of my own advancements and the writing of many successful entrepreneurs there is always a trough before the success. If data or observation tells us that the trough is the beginning of something new why would we look upon the trough as a bad place to be and require assistance to get out?
I have learned to embrace the trough. It's not an easy place to be, it challenges our values, self esteem and confidence. Within the trough we forge a new steel of existence that on the other side we can move closer to success. One thing becomes clear when working with team members they are defending the wave top they think they are on or they are growing by finding the trough. They will either back up to the top of the previous wave or learn and adventure to the next wave. None of this can happen when we don't experience the trough.
"Lo though i walk through the valley of death..." or trough, removing the question "if" we will walk through this valley (trough) many times, rather implying we will emerge different on the other side, if we choose.
All surfers eventually lose the wave. Complaining about the trough will not find the next one you can ride.
Intriguing as usual @Ali Anani

Comments21/03/2017 #1 Robert CormackEverything you've written is very true, @Mercy A. Ananeh-Frempong. I'll just add one thing since I've been writing longer than most Silicon Valley billionaires have been alive. You can't just "pick" an interesting first line or paragraph based on what you think will be interesting to others. What you have to learn is "starting in the right place." Every article, every story, every novel and every poem has to start "in the right place." Hemingway spoke of this. He called it finding "the true, honest first sentence." When you've found that, then you know where to start. When you start right, people will know and read you. Thanks for the post.

To me the difference is a question of duplicity. @Phil Friedman put it very well somewhere down below. Close20/03/2017 #85 Aleta Curry#77 Doesn't bother me, for the reasons I've stated. I've been on the 'Net a long time and in a lot of places, and I've seen that people can feel quite differently about it. Glad you got that weight off your chest, though, Todd.
Hmm... I can now add 'confessor' to my CV ;)19/03/2017 #84 Robert Bacal#83 Ummm....@Javier 🐝 beBee has indicated one can't use faked photos on one's profile. The Jim Able site IS using a fake photo, and one that's probably copyrighted too. Also, nowhere on your profile does it say who it really is - ummmm. yeah, fake. Non-existent person, fake photo, faked account. Just sayin....since it's now become an issue for several people who have non "them" photos.19/03/2017 #83 Phil FriedmanFor the record, I do not use a "fake" profile. With the full knowledge of beBee, I do use a pen name for my satirical writings, which I have not, for several reasons, wanted automatically associated with my business profile. The use of a pen name for writing in certain genres is a long respected literary tradition. Anyone interested in the difference is invited to review the following post:
Then go to Jim Able's profile to judge for yourself whether there is anything "fake" about it. Personally, I believe it more "fake" to claim to be a Guru or a Universal Truth Teller or an Amazon Best Selling Author (when it has been well documented that anyone can achieve this last designation by publishing a two-page "book" and spending less than $50)
Fake is not a matter of using an avatar or a pen name. Fake is when you misrepresent who and what you are.19/03/2017 #80 Todd Jones#79 I just read through that thread, Michael. I doubt that he intended it, but Javier's response to you came across as a bit of a petulant threat, completely out of character from his usual self.
Anyway, I like the Beeker image. I hope he lets you keep it. I also find your thread contributions to be thoughtful, non-threatening, and well articulated.
As for me, if I am censored for using a visage de plume, so be it. I have no doubt that the platform will live on just fine without me. I should probably find more productive ways to spend my time anyway :)19/03/2017 #79 Anonymous#77 @Todd Jones , in a response to a question I posted in a thread started by @Dean Owen in the Cars hive, I got the following response:
Javier 🐝 beBee
7 h #21
#18 @Michael O'Neil we are working on it. Next platform will be amazing. Also beBee will not give reach to fake profiles. I recommend you to put a picture of you on your profile. Many thanks
So @Todd Jones , your reach on beBee will be curtailed when the next platform is released. @Javier 🐝 beBee clearly places great import on the photograph. You have just revealed yours is not you.
More than one participant here is putting pressure on me to post a photograph of me. I'll post one. It wont be current, but then no photograph is. Perhaps a montage of photographs will tell you more?19/03/2017 #77 Todd Jones#34 Hi Michael, and Aleta.... Heretofore untold secret. The brute in my profile photo is not actually of me. As I was scrolling through photos while setting up my goofy profile page, I couldn't find any of myself, as I am not prone to taking selfies. The pic is actually of a guy that I work with, and thought it funny the resemblance between him and the coffee mug that he was holding. The coffee mug was a gift from his kids procured from a garage sale. I guess I adopted it as my visage-de-plume, or pen-face, if there is such a term, for no other reason than I liked the photo.
While it is certainly not intended to be duplicitous, I suppose it does serve the purpose of maintaining my anonymity in the likely event that I offer nonsensical or imprudent commentary.
Phewf! Glad I got that off my conscience! Hope you don't think less of me.19/03/2017 #76 Aleta CurryAnother point I meant to put in here but forgot to, was that having to consider other people's profiles made me reconsider mine, and particularly, made me rewrite that intro.
After all, if I'm making judgements about other people very quickly, they're doing the same about me.
So this physician really did recognise the need to heal herself, too@19/03/2017 #75 Aleta Curry#74 I should probably move the lines about the buzzes up to the other criteria.
But you're contradicting yourself, you're acknowledging that I place primary importance on buzzes.
On the subject of seeing if they ever write in English - well, that should read as the previous phrase did 'in a language I don't read'. How on earth is that elitist? Following a person whose writing I can't read would do what, exactly, for me or for my fellow Bee?19/03/2017 #74 Pedro Casanova#58 @aleta-curry ....( quoting ) Well is the profile incomplete? – I may leave the notification in my inbox and check back in a few days to see if they’ve finished it.

Comments20/03/2017 #13 Robert CormackGood piece, @Mercy A. Ananeh-Frempong. Our inner voice isn't exactly hiding. Most writers, particularly young ones, have trouble finding it because of the noice. We're subjected to so much noise. In the quiet of night, if you really listen, your inner voice talks a great deal. Once you develop an "ear," meaning you let that inner voice speak, it'll eventually translate onto paper. That's when people say "Your writing sounds like you." When it doesn't, it's simply people not listening. Thanks for the post.20/03/2017 #10 Mercy A. Ananeh-Frempong#3 I agree with you, Jim. I had to test this out for myself to really be sure that writing was more than just a teenage pastime I indulged in. Over the years, no matter how many months I go without writing, I find myself coming back to it time and time again. I always have a journal or notebook with me to scribble thoughts down. Not to mention the neurotic self-editing when I writing even a comment or a simple post...haha...plus the smell of paper. It's kind of sad but at the same time, it's therapy and an incredibly great activity when I'm doing it at my own pace. Many thanks for sharing my post :)19/03/2017 #5 Marisa Fonseca DinizExcellent article that translates the reality of writers, current and future authors. To be a writer is to write with the soul, to know that your knowledge and experiences can be shared with several people around the world. Writing is an art, and we writers are always reading and writing so that more people can benefit from our knowledge. I advise many more people to follow this path whether writing articles (writers) or writing books (authors), as there are still many people thirsting for knowledge around the world.19/03/2017 #4 John White, MBATip!

Buzz on!19/03/2017 #3 Jim MurrayVery Interesting post, Mercy One area you did not touch on is the one that has to do with having a genuine affinity towards the actual act of writing. To wit: that some people may not be destined to be writers because while they may master the craft they will never feel the joy. I know a number of 'writers, especially in the marketing area who tell me that they actually hate writing. That it feels like manual labour to them. They only do it because somebody is willing to pay them for it. But I totally agree with you that the true motivation has to come from somewhere deep within. It has to be a passion, otherwise it will just be a pastime and you will never really get to experience the true ecstasy of it all.

Without them I wouldn't have all the wonderful conveniences of my lifestyle. I'd like to take this opportunity to thank all...
Comments19/03/2017 #13 Todd JonesHi Donna... You are welcome! I am a morning person by necessity, as my job as a utility lineman requires that I travel frequently to far flung jobsites. Rather than living out of a suitcase, I often choose to commute up to three hours each way. I spent way too much time on the road in my younger days, and now prefer the comforts of my own home and bed.
The problem with being a morning person by necessity is that the rhythm follows me into the weekends, and on vacation. Oh, how I would love to sleep past 5AM, but I just cant seem to do it, and staying awake past 10PM is practically impossible.
I will say though, that I was out of work for 10 weeks with a knee injury back in 2015, and found that during this time I would naturally wake up around 7:30, and stay up until midnightish. Would that qualify me as a night owl?19/03/2017 #12 David B. Grinberg#11 That's one way to look at it, Donna. But I think there's also something to be said for solitude which, for some writers, can be a catalyst to the creative process. Everyone is unique and different in their own special way.

For example those who are in 24x7 process plant (mfg., prod., service) industry in a local locale. Also those who tune up to keep in rhythm with service to other locales.. like IT work.

I actually admire and envy morning persons! My mom once told me I was never a morning person and she was right. Both of my kids and my husband are morning people. I feel out-numbered when we are all together. Like you, I thank all those who are morning people. I think most of my creative and positive thoughts come to me late at night... it can be lonely because there isn't anyone up to share your ideas with. Having some java now, which I don't make a habit out of! ;-) By the way, @David B.

Creative writing is any writing that goes outside the bounds of normal professional, journalistic, academic, or technical forms of literature, typically identified by an emphasis on narrative craft, character development, and the use of literary tropes or with various traditions of poetry and poetics. Due to the looseness of the definition, it is possible for writing such as feature stories to be considered creative writing, even though they fall under journalism, because the content of features is specifically focused on narrative and character development. Both fictional and non-fictional works fall into this category, including such forms as novels, biographies, short stories, and poems. In the academic setting, creative writing is typically separated into fiction and poetry classes, with a focus on writing in an original style, as opposed to imitating pre-existing genres such as crime or horror. Writing for the screen and stage—screenwriting and playwrighting—are often taught separately, but fit under the creative writing category as well.
