Table Manners For Writers

It is perfectly okay to bring a notebook and pen, phone or even a laptop to the table as long as they are used for writing purposes.

If you aren’t entirely comfortable with the above, then you can and should excuse yourself, so you don’t forget your incredible idea. This goes for any conversation you find yourself in as well. 

After all, ideas have a terrible habit of getting away. 

I give you full permission. Not like you need my permission. Or anyone’s permission for that matter. 

I’m just joking. Sort of. 

Personal Reflection

Testing My Patience

People just love testing my patience.

For the longest time, I could not for the life of me understand why certain individuals make rude remarks.

But I have come to realize that these people are simply testing my patience and are improving my tolerance for bad manners.

That doesn’t mean I condone their words or even their actions.

However I will like to thank them for teaching me an important lesson.

You don’t get respect if you don’t give it. Or at the very least, you won’t have my respect if you don’t treat me with respect.

Is it really too much to ask for?

Tweeting

5 Things You Should Never Do On Twitter

It seems like almost everybody I know has Twitter. I don’t blame them. With that being said, there is etiquette and protocol to follow. It isn’t that hard to be respectful and have good manners online.

These are, in my opinion, 5 things you should never do on Twitter. Despite how tempting some of them may be.

  1. Spam people. Nobody likes a spammer. Not even the spammer himself.
  2. Promote yourself all the time. Especially if you are a writer.
  3. Insult or attack others. If you watch what you say, you should watch what you tweet too.
  4. Involve yourself in controversy. When is controversy ever beneficial?
  5. Get too personal. Enough said.
