Writing - beBee


+ 100 buzzes
Writing is a medium of human communication that represents language and emotion through the inscription or recording of signs and symbols. In most languages, writing is a complement to speech or spoken language. Writing is not a language but a form of technology that developed as tools developed with human society. Within a language system, writing relies on many of the same structures as speech, such as vocabulary, grammar and semantics, with the added dependency of a system of signs or symbols. The result of writing is generally called text, and the recipient of text is called a reader.

    The transition from employee of any type to entrepreneur is challenging. I did it very young. I can still remember the fear and anxiety of feeling like a long tail cat in a rocking chair store.

    You bring some valid points to the discussion. What i had to learn is that my knowledge, skills and wisdom would be present within each new experience. Wisdom may have been elusive, but with knowledge and skill i could develop the wisdom needed to traverse the new.

    Hi @Suzan Savarese, I'm a newbee too. And, I too, am an EA large company (Fortune 100). AND, also a 50/50 partner for a small business. Both jobs are vastly different as you describe here. Yet, our core values are the same, in fact must be the same in order to be successful at both AT the same time. My condolences for the loss of your Dad. I ALSO can relate to that. My 93 year old mom was in my care directly for the last 10 years. She is still "kicking," but we moved her to a long term nursing home close to my two sisters in another city. I didn't want to do it at the time, but I'm glad we did, as my life has been given a much needed break. I wish you all the best in your future.

    I am a living embodiment of what is said here because I began my life in a state of extreme protection. I never understood why I was protected or what from but I learned not to say NO. Now had I at that time learned to say NO, I would have been a damaged human being rather than a human being living in a bubble of protection. So it is not simple as saying NO but assessing the wisdom contextually. Understand the context and what seems wrong is under some contexts what was right.

    Had I said NO when I was younger and escaped this protection, I would have walked into the same fire other people did, which was right into the hands of the major gangs in our town. I was not brought up in a middle class home with natural protections of middle class existence - I am extremely thankful for that protection because that allowed me to recognize in retrospect just how lucky I had been.

    Now just because someone has been in that bubble of protection does not erase their natural intelligence. If had been utterly simplistic to the point of being stupid about life I would not have come to a point where I learned the power of saying NO - but without betraying my past and a mother fiercely protective of her children. To this I say forever thank you Mom.

    That being said I also became self-aware enough to know the downside of living in a bubble, that when one is not touched by the hard stones and knives of reality, there is a blissful ignorance of life as it for many people. In that regard I do identify with the story of Buddha who came out of his protected state and was shocked to the core of his bones when he saw reality first-hand. That led to him exploring how to end suffering. Of course I am not Buddha, but here I accept the meaning of "NO".

    An important subject to tackle and well-written post, @Victoria Toumit. Sometimes, it is difficult to say no for various reasons. We get caught up in situations we don't like nor do we have time for because we can't say no. Perhaps, we don't want to hurt another person's feelings or we feel sorry for them and we give in to their request. Too many situations can foster angry feelings and damage relationships.
    Lance  🐝 Scoular
    10/06/2017 #11 Lance 🐝 Scoular
    Well put Victoria.
    While you put it in the context of personal relationships, the importance of being able to say no applies in our work, professional and involvement in not-for-profit, causes or religious organisations.

    The reasons can vary but can particularly relate to being over commited with our time on other responsibilities or unwarented high expectations of others.

    Often in these cases, it is some thing we actually want to do, yet if we say yes, it will impact other activities with a higher priority or impact.

    Sometimes, just take a deep breath, say why and end by this is why is say No..or to be politically correct..why you decline for today the favor you have been asked for. If they insist because of many reasons...say you are not the appropriate person and point someone they despite or you despite. For the no receiver, it helps him or her to grow,

    You can never go home again ~ which is why I never intend to. A new country every year - and never going back. You see shit in the military that none in the civilian world ever understand - eventually you just give up trying to explain it to them. It is easier to start fresh with a new name, different language and in a far away foreign land, than it is to 'integrate' back into America.

Many buildings have been razed, while other structures have been built. I was a longhair teen in a 'redneck' logging town; now it is full of hobby shops, arts & crafts and even an art gallery. It now has an aire of a counter-culture hamlet long since the counter-cuture has faded. Almost like a ghostly apparition.

    #29 Personally, they've never worked for me. Some people say Kava works. Studies have been done which state Kava doesn't. I never benefited from it. Maybe others would know? They do sell teas specifically for stress, a company named Yogi sells one. You can get it in the grocery store. It wouldn't hurt to try, maybe it would work for you. B vitamins are supposed to be really good for anxiety. You have to take B Complex with B12. I buy both and get sublingual drops. They sell sublingual B12 too. It takes time for a vitamin regime to begin to work if it's going to but that is well worth trying.

    #15 Hi @Renée 🐝 Cormier, sadly with GAD (Generalized Anxiety Disorder) thoughts do control you in a strange way. That's one of the reasons I'm in therapy working on reprogramming my brain per se. Intrusive thoughts are unwanted thoughts that play over and over like a broken record in your mind no matter what thoughts you try to replace them with, they return instantly. I never realized how much my thoughts controlled me until I sought help. That is *one* of my issues and I actually thought for a very long time that I was weak and should be able to control my thoughts- I worked hard daily w/out success and just became more worn down physically, When people are inflicted with intrusive thoughts they beat themselves up more than anyone. Logically, a person will keep saying, "This is BS, I need to stop thinking these thoughts, re-direct... think about all the positive things going on, think of wonderful memories," eg, it's only a temporary (very temporary) reprieve. Don't get me wrong, I'm not a negative Nancy no matter how it may appear when I write. I agree, we can choose our thoughts but we aren't always in control. I appreciate you taking the time to read this. :)

    You'll excuse my language, @Lisa 🐝 Gallagher, but one of the most therapeutic things you can do is tell your brain to "f**k off." I know it sounds crazy but our rambling minds can sometimes create panic that goes way beyond reality. Every time you feel anxious, just use those two little words. Say them to yourself or say them out loud. And just keep saying it until your brain calms down.

    Thank you for thinking so of this post @Paul Walters. And very interesting analogies indeed .. feel compelled to add a verse here arising from your reflections on writing ...and what is alluring about it.

    Mystic of this mistress....
    In the unforgiving toughness
    is the challenge to continue
    In her demands to deliver
    Is the discipline of approach
    In the chiding of the critiques
    Is the attempt to evolve
    Beyond the punishing schedules
    And in that trusting knowing
    Writers write, painters paint
    Singers sing, dancers dance
    Finding purpose in the passion
    In the artistry of creativity...
    And as art empowers in the connectivity
    Life carries on...

    @Savvy Raj Writing, she is a tough and unforgiving mistress !! She demands, except's no excuses, chides quickly, blesses rarely and punishes often...yet we continue. @CityVP 🐝 Manjit talks of voice recognition or transferring thoughts to the page in a nano second. I cant wait for that, for my fingers alas are too slow sometimes to capture the thoughts . Great post, thank you
    Savvy Raj
    15/04/2017 #14 Savvy Raj
    Every time there is a comment from you @CityVP 🐝 Manjitty one knows there is a comment which emerges from a waltzing mind that takes you on a journey and delivers you a concotion of heady turns in the flow of thoughts and thinking through beyond the maze of mundane to the relevant interconnections in the evolving patterns. (By the way Waltz happens to be one of my favourite dances.😊)
    The quote share by @Chas ✌️ Wyatt is on the dot as it touches one of my reasons for writing ... a sense of equanimity amidst arising thoughts .
    The touch of pen to paper by a writer is deeply connected to the heart and mind . And it is sadly missing in todays hifi world.But the art of writing and sharing is healing and transformative . AI has already started exploring this route although it remains to be seen how it will predict the choice of freewill.
    Like I mentioned in my reply to @Sara Jacobovici here , I also appreciate the enriching links you care to share often as a reader and I do enjoy equally in engaging and revelling in these arising thoughts shares from thinking .
    As writers here in Bebee and anywhere else would agree, in simply having a reader dance a while with your writing in his mind and in caring to express with their uniqueness makes any writer feel fulfilled as to why they write.
    CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    14/04/2017 #13 CityVP 🐝 Manjit
    The foundation of writing has been described by Chas ✌️ Wyatt in his opening comment "The act of putting pen to paper encourages pause for thought" The thought part is not in dispute, what I am tapping out now is a thought, but the writing part - that act of putting pen to paper evokes a certain relationship between the pen and the paper - neither of which exist in the digital space I am typing in right now.

    Voice recognition systems will mean that we can voice our words and create a digital representation of them. At least there is some linkage between typing and writing that we can call writing - but the next leap is voice command and after that pure telepathy - to produce words by simply thinking them and if we think that is science fiction, then we have not been looking in the development pipeline what technology now has the potential to extend.

    While we are decades away from mind-reading AI science is looking for ways of moving this from the realm of science fiction to supercomputer reality. http://www.synthetictelepathy.net/our-mission/ Compared to that state of development we today are still living in an innocent time, but we are also living in a darker time because trust is an issue today and it has to be a transformation tomorrow.

    Writing is still a freedom, an edited flow between imagination and art. At the individual level there is still beauty in the art, at the group level there is transformation in the science. Am I writer here at beBee. No. I am a thinker in a time when what we think is each our own responsibility, and if a part of that thinking expresses humanity through writing, that is a good connection. The purpose of art someone once said is to make us think. I embrace this buzz, as a thinker rather than as a writer.

    Hybrid Publishing for the 21st Century
    Hybrid Publishing for the 21st CenturyWhat happens when Hollywood gets bored? Remakes, and remakes of remakes. It would seem these days that Hollywood just doesn't know when to end a story either. They film it out to the bitter anticlimactic end. What movie? Oh, pick one of late, I'm...


    Donna Wood
    14/04/2017 #7 Donna Wood
    I don't think it should be run on a contest platform. Using data analysis and market trends, books can easily be transformed to script format. The Big Five have enough data to know what the market wants. Hollywood is begging for writers, new ideas and new stories. It would be interesting to see what would happen if PRH and Lions Gate collaborated. People who make movies obviously read books, and care about what is hot on the market: Twilight, Fifty Shades, The Shack, anything Stephen King...
    Jerry Fletcher
    14/04/2017 #6 Jerry Fletcher
    A friend has a story written for the screen coached by an award winning screenwriter and playwright. She then paid for an edit by a script doctor and fell into an insider connection that is shopping her story. As that lady put it, "The people that get movies made don't read books. They read scripts."

    There's the rub. No matter how good the book is it must be translated to a script before it can get any traction and when the contests draw up to 20,000 entries that are pitched with words like, "It's a cross between Seinfeld and Star Trek..."

    @Paul Walters I think the publishers and the filmmakers need to be more intentional about it. The interesting thing is, now that you bring them up, agents would also have to be somewhat of a hybrid breed themselves, maybe being able to traverse both worlds. Hollywood seems to be dying a slow, agonizing death that is painful to watch.

    @Donna Wood Ah..the elusive film deal. I was fortunate enough five years ago when a big studio to a 2 year option on my first book Final Diagnosis. Oh how excited I was, skipping down the street and mentally spending the royalties. Two years came and went without a peep and the fellow who worked at the studio who tokk on the option was no longer there when I called...Oh dear! The trick is to have an agent and getting an agent is akin to the Pope inviting you to a one on one private mass. I wrote a piece on this ( on beBEE ) entitled , "Finding an agent is like trying to catch the wind." Some of the reviews I have received , i.e. Boston Globe said , and I quote, " A rollicking ride, can't wait for the movie" Yup, Hollywood is all out of ideas and you are dead right there is a mountain of material in some great books out there. My publisher methinks is a little lazy which doesnt give me much hope...but I will keep trying !
