Cursive (wiki)
Cursive is also known as longhand, script, handwriting, looped writing, joined-up writing, joint writing, or running writing is any style of penmanship in which the symbols of the language are written in a conjoined and/or flowing manner, generally for the purpose of making writing faster. Formal cursive is generally joined, but casual cursive is a combination of joins and pen lifts. The writing style can be further divided as "looped", "italic", or "connected".

Good handwriting is having good focus and paying attention to how you write each individual letter, while at the same time, you have to know which letter comes next to form the word that you are writing. So writing combines focus and planning ahead, a type of multitasking. First you have to know what you are writing, then you have to know what words and symbols you need to write in order to communicate your message, then you need to focus on writing each letter as you are recalling the next letter so as to keep a steady flow of writing.

UCL Computer Scientists have developed Software Computer Programme that Replicates Handwriting
"My Text in Your Handwriting" programme, semi-automatically examines a sample of a person’s handwriting, which can be as little as one paragraph, and then generates new text saying whatever the user wishes, as if the author had handwritten it themselves.

Tips to become a Good Writer  -  Writers Knowledge

"Either write things that are worth reading, or do things that are worth writing about, and if you do both, you can't go wrong."

The person who does not write things that are insightful and educational has no advantage over a person who can't write at all.
This is not saying that you should not read and write for fun, or, this is not saying that knowing how to read and write has no advantages, because it does, It's just saying that Balance and Purpose should be of highest priority.

4: Be Creative with your words but not too fancy, make it simple and to the point. The reader shouldn't have to guess what you mean. If your writing is to advanced it may distract someone from fully understanding your message. Not to say that
Sophisticated writing is bad, there is a time and place for everything. You reach a larger audience with easy to understand
writing. Sometimes dividing long sentences into shorter ones can be more effective. A paragraph should support a single idea.
Try to reframe 90% of the passive voice. Use a Thesaurus or a Dictionary to find the right words. (Participle)
Try to be unique, informative, direct, simple and brief. Prefer a vigorous, lucid or Saxon Word to the romantic.
And use Transitive Verbs that strike their object. Prefer the familiar word, and the concrete or Root Word, to the Abstract
Avoid superfluous redundant or unnecessary empty words.  Idioms   Readability
Know the differences between Redundancy, TautologyPleonasm, Verbosity, Contractions and RepetitionCommunication

5: Be informative and educational with the latest information available on your subject. Try to limit your personal opinions and try to avoid using clichés. Make it exciting to read.

Writing Exercise     Complex Nouns 

The average writer who's doing research for a story, will spend at least 3 weeks interviewing on the average around 100 people, either in person or talking with them over the telephone. They will request information and facts from various sources from around the world, like press releases, technical papers and so on. From that they will create 100's of pages of hand written notes of 20,000 words or more. Then they will meticulously go through all the acquired information to retrieve the most important parts. Then they will spend about a week writing and rewriting the story till it becomes something to be published.  Journalism Tools

Context gives Meaning to Words, and words give meaning to context. In order to say what you mean you have to know a lot of words and all the definitions that apply to those words. So Vocabulary is valuable, but not as valuable as knowing how to use words to Express meaning.

Transcription Fluency:
Elementary-school kids who hand-wrote their work produced more words and more ideas than those who typed. College students who typed notes on a laptop remembered less about a lecture than those who wrote by hand. People remember lectures better when they’ve taken handwritten notes, rather than typed ones. But that is a problem with learning styles and memory, and not a problem with technology. A computer laptop is by far a more superior tool then a pencil and paper. So don't blame the laptop for you bad memory or your lack of creativity. Technology enhances and accelerates learning, if it doesn't, then that has something to do with you and not technology.  verbatim

"I try not to influence writers on what they should write about, only that they care about what they are writing. Try not so much to devise a piece of writing, try to realize a piece of writing, a piece of writing that has to be written. If you feel that you will be wasting time writing about something, then you should not write it. Don't write because you are a good writer, write because you need to write something good."

"Writing has therapeutic benefits. The process of documenting your thoughts can free your mind."


How Many Pages should my Novel be?

Publishers go by words, not pages. Most adult books are about 90,000 words, and no longer than 100,000 words
(unless you’re JK Rowling). Teen books are about 55,000 words.
A Book will usually have 250-300 words per page. Therefore, a 55,000 word book should be about 200 manuscript pages. A 100,000 word book would be about 400. Editors like 12 point font.
In short:
80,000 – 89,999: Totally cool
90,000 – 99,999: Generally safe
70,000 – 79,999: Might be too short; probably all right
100,000 – 109,999: Might be too long; probably all right
Below 70,000: Too short
110,000 or above Too long

Too long; didn't read (abbreviated tl;dr and tldr) is a shorthand notation added by an editor indicating a passage appeared to be too long to invest the time to digest.
Too Long; Didn't Read
Information Overload

Word Count is the number of words in a document or passage of text. Word counting may be needed when a text is required
to stay within certain numbers of words.

That is why a computer based article is better then a printed article. Because you can shorten an article by using links. If the person needs more information then all they have to do is follow the link. So articles can be shorter and more manageable without sacrificing other relevant knowledge and information. Short is not always sweet. But some writers love empty words and writing vague commentary without considering the readers need for quickly understanding the message. And an overlong composition may seem long, but it may not be, because not everyone can accurately calculate whether extra words were actually necessary. I don't mind investing the time needed reading a good article, but please, don't waste my time with your dribble or overlong prose and over-verbose writing. Just the facts, and please have a point, a point worth mentioning. To be clear enough sometimes depends on the reader and not just the writer. But digital technology solves this problem. That is why printed material is now inadequate in most cases. Technology accelerates learning if we use correctly. It's like reading a book, you don't have to read the whole book in one sitting, you can read some now and then read some later. To say something was to long to read, is to say that I  will never have the time or the motivation to read more of what I have already read. And the reasoning behind that decision not read more has other contributing factors, like the experience with previous knowledge and information, which may have nothing to do with the style or the length of someone's writing. So even when you think you covered all the different angles and possible scenarios, there is always going to be one more thing that you never thought of. Learning is awesome!

Writing Quotes and Sayings

I have never lived so passionately as when I am writing passionately about living. (Michael J. Budnicki)

"Either write things that are worth reading or do things that are worth writing about, and if you do both you can't go wrong"  

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page. (Saint Augustine)

A writer writes not because he is educated but because he is driven by the need to communicate. ( Leo Rosten)

The art of communicating thoughts to the mind, through the eye is the great invention of the world. (Abraham Lincoln)

"Try not to think about things that you're not willing to write about. This is not to say that you should write about everything that comes to mind, because something's cannot, and should not, be shared in writing. Mostly because something's cannot be fully understood enough. So if you feel the need to write something down, that might be considered crazy or hard to understand, do it privately so that it will give you some time to understand and process these particular thoughts that you have written."

"You never quite know what exact arrangement of words that people will understand, the intended meaning is not always a guarantee"  (Howard Polley)

Writing about your personal experiences is liberating. It also gives you a chance to better understand yourself by being able to reexamine what you have written later on. Writing about a moment in time that you have experienced, through your own perspective, is saving a memory. It's also creating a hard copy of a memory that will act like a back up in case your personal memory fades or leaves out important details, for what ever reason. If you like what you have written, then you should share it, like sharing a memory. We all hope that we will be able to take our memories with us when we die, but just incase, we should write some of our memories down because they might be beneficial to others, pretty much the same way that you benefited from the memories of other people  in your life, people who were thoughtful enough to share what they have learned with you.  Pass the Baton

"One of my problems with hand writing is that I'm not thinking about what I'm writing because my brain is thinking faster then I can write it down. So I find myself scribbling a lot, but it's not that bad as long as I can deceiver it later and rewrite it."

I'm sometimes more focused on what I'm trying to say then I am about the spelling of words. That is why writers have proof readers and editors. This way writers can focus more on what they're trying to say and not have to focus on irrelevant things, like the spelling of words. I would rather misspell words when writing about things that are important then write about things that are irrelevant but spelled perfectly, who cares. Besides, if you know that a word is misspelled you must know what the word is? So nothing is lost.

So the problem is not my spelling, the problem is that you're too easily distracted by things that don't matter, which is no surprise.

Sometimes I can't stop to think about the spelling of a word because that would cause me to change focus. And when thoughts
are flying by at lighting speed, if you look away just for a second you sometimes miss key information pertaining to that thought, like how the thought was generated? What was going to be learned from that thought? Do more questions need to be answered about that thought?  And some thoughts immediately create associations, so analyzing begins immediately, which also needs to be documented.  Can I get a Spell Check?

"It's much more important to communicate effectively then it is to always spell words correctly. Spelling is an irrelevant detail. Am I becoming a better speller, yes. But it is still not a high priority, as you can still see."

I love writing, even though I might not agree with everything that I write later on. That's why I love the digital world. I don't waste paper and I didn't print any books. I can just delete it or rewrite it. Correcting is all about survival. The more I learn, the more my understanding increases in size, so I have to update what I have written. Some of what you see on this website is just the first draft, and others have gone through a few revisions. How an idea comes to mind and the path it took is important. There are other paths that led to the same idea. I got here because I was thinking of this, but I also got here because I was thinking of that. Two different paths leading to the same place.

"I don't own the words or did I create the words, I just assemble the words. Sometimes uniquely, other times just a little differently."

The most important thing is to write down the words before you forget them. And it's always a good idea to have a place to put things, a place that will make it easy for you to find and remember the things that are important. So having some kind of a File System has always been a very useful tool and skill to have.


Perpetual
Some of the things that I have I learned about writing is that the more you write the more you learn. And one of the things that you learn when you write is that you learn to write better. And when you learn to write better you learn even more. So it’s safe to say, if you never stop writing about what you have learned, about yourself and the world, you will never stop learning.

Even though I’m a terrible writer, I myself look at writing as an incredible gift. At times writing can be so exhilarating to me that it’s better then any drug that I have ever done. But there were so many times in my life that I wished I had the words for those particular moments, but of course I didn’t. It was always much later and too late. But as I found the words, I realized that all is not lost. I can still say those words and share them by writing them down. For I am certain that those moments in my life will surely repeat themselves in other peoples lives, if not my own. So just maybe, someone would be lucky enough to remember what I have written, and not have to walk away from a very important moment, saying, “I wished that I had the right words to say”. To me that is the greatest gift a writer could ever give.   (Howard Polley)

How do I know what I mean until I see what I say?"

"There's a big difference between what you want to say and what you eventually do say. Remember what you were thinking and share it."

"Writing is like a form of meditation, you need to slow your thinking down and focus." 

"I don't write to impress people, I don't write to insult people, I don't write to manipulate people, I write to communicate with people."

"I'm filing a document of my thoughts. Just like millions of people have done before me. I am an accumulation of thoughts that have been passed down for thousands of years. And it seems that we are just beginning to think, because we have never had so much knowledge and information before, it's almost God like."

"It's very easy to look stupid while you are actually planning something incredible. There's genius under the chaos. But I wouldn't say that I'm doing it my way, I'm just doing it the way it happens, which seems to be perfect."

When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?

I'm thinking faster then I can write my thoughts down, so I don't always have time to check my spelling. I don't want my writing to slow down my thinking, because some thoughts are so new and unique that if I pause for just a moment I may forget the idea that I was trying to record and document. It's like trying to remember the details of a dream that you just had when sleeping, the longer you wait to recall the details of that dream the more details you will lose and forget.

"The two most important things about writing and reading are comprehension and relevance. Just being a good speller does not confirm good reading comprehension or does it confirm that you are reading and writing things that are important or relevant.
Make sure that kids understand what they are reading and writing, and make sure that they are reading and writing things that are important and relevant to them, things that will increase their understanding of themselves and the world around them."

Eco-Friendly Writing: Pencils are better the Pens because pencils are made of things found naturally in our environment, and they are also renewable and they breakdown in landfills.

Narrative Modes
Character is the representation of a person in a narrative or dramatic work of art (such as a novel, play, or film).
Narrator is the use of a written or spoken commentary to convey a story to an audience. Narration encompasses a set of techniques through which the creator of the story presents their story, including: Narrative point of view: the perspective (or type of personal or non-personal "lens") through which a story is communicated. Narrative voice: the format (or type presentational form) through which a story is communicated. Narrative time: the grammatical placement of the story's time-frame in the past, the present, or the future. Narrative Mode
Narrative is a message that tells the particulars of an act or occurrence or course of events; presented in writing or drama or cinema or as a radio or television program. Consisting of or characterized by the telling of a story.
First-Person Narrative is a story from the first-person perspective: the viewpoint of a character writing or speaking directly about themselves.
Second-Person Narrative is a narrative mode in which the protagonist or another main character is referred to by second-person personal pronouns and other kinds of addressing forms, for example the English second-person pronoun "you".
Third-Person a narrator with an overarching point of view, seeing and knowing everything that happens within the world of the story, including what each of the characters is thinking and feeling, having its own personality, offering judgments and opinions on the behavior of the characters.
Reconstruction is an interpretation formed by piecing together bits of evidence. Recall that is hypothesized to work by storing abstract features which are then used to construct the memory during recall.

Past Tense is to place an action or situation in past time, indicating that the event being referred to took place in the past.
Present Perfect used to express a past event that has present consequences.
Present Tense is a tense expressing an action that is currently going on or habitually performed, or a state that currently or generally exists.
Future Tense is an event that has not happened yet, something that may happen in the future.

Profanity


Potty Mouths - Foul-Mouthed - Four-Letter Words - Cursing - Vulgarity - Naughty Words - Colorful Language - Vulgar Language - Dirty Words - F-bomb - Ephemera - Pardon my French - Labels - Humor as a Weapon.

"Words can be liberating, but words can also be debilitating."

"Don't let horrible language distract you or stop you from learning."

Hate Speech
Slander
Obscenities
Anger
Pejorative

Swearwords, Insults, curses, harsh language or Profanity is used in some cases to express emotion and feelings about something that people are passionate about. But swearwords must be followed by words of deeper meaning and expression so that it helps explain your passion in better detail, other wise swearwords are just empty words of a incomplete sentence. You end up mostly communicating Emotion and not enough Meaning. So learn to Elaborate. Derogatory Words, Ethnic Slurs and Fighting Words are never effective ways to communicate. It's like trying to put out a fire with gasoline, it's just illogical. Don't make things worse or miss out on a chance to make things better. Think before you speak. If you don't have the right words then sometimes it's best to wait till you do find the right words. 

You need to learn how to make words powerful, but you also how to make words powerless when needed.
"Sticks and stones may break my bones, but names will never hurt me"

To feel insulted or offended by profanity is wrong and not beneficial to you. To be truly offended or insulted is to say things that are insinuating and meant to hurt someone, like you're fat, you're ugly, you're stupid, you're a certain color, you're a certain religion or a certain sexual orientation. There are many hurtful things that you can say to a person. But like a lot of words, a swear word has no definitive meaning, just like most insults do. Your fat because you eat to much is not always the case. Your ugly does not say that you are ugly to everyone. Saying you're stupid does not measure your intelligence. And the color of your skin does not say what kind of person you are. If someone calls you an asshole, this does not define you as only being an asshole, or mean and selfish, it just might be saying that a particular action you took was bad and wrong. So someone called you an asshole just to shorten the sentence, because there my be a time constraint. So what ever words are used, just remember, it's like someone saying "Hey you!", and you say "What!" or you just ignore them, which is usually the best reaction.

My swear words or curses are just emotional expressions of my disappointment. My intentions are not to offend anyone or to hurt anyone. My swear words are solely meant to bring attention to a serious problem, a problem that you may or may not be involved in. So the swear words are mostly directed at a problem and not so much at a particular person. Do I need to use them?  Obsolescence

Interjection is a word used to express a particular emotion or sentiment on the part of the speaker.
Superlative is a form of an adverb or adjective that is used to signify the greatest degree of a given descriptor.

Emphasize is to single out something as important. To give extra weight to something during communication. But if you don't explain why something is important, then bad words become just empty words, and sometimes certain words do more harm then good. So your attempt to bring light to something may end up being shrouded in darkness, where the problem will hide from the eyes of the ignorant. Swearwords can be used to bring attention to something that is important, or perceived to be important, like an Exclamation Mark. So f*ck could mean "please look and listen, this is important!" or perceived to be important, after all, a swearword does not replace the words "evidence, research or experience", you still have to define those words and explain what you mean. I want to bring attention to something, but I don't want to distract someone by using words that are biased. So use profanity wisely and respectfully. Go f*ck yourself and have a nice day a**hole is contradictory, and Mean.

Emphasize: To stress, single out as important. Give extra weight to (a communication) Give special importance or prominence to (something) in speaking or writing. Make (something) more clearly defined.

The human tongue is a beast that few can master. It strains constantly to break out of its cage, and if it is not tamed, it will run wild and cause you grief.”

"Just because you put some words together doesn't mean that you said something."  Communicate

Effects of Swearing, Speak Loudly Softly 

Harsh language, demeaning words, Humiliation, Condescending words or just plain mean talk, is just stupid. if you can't communicate what you are trying to say, then wait till you learn. There are always better words to use. But why does our relationship with a particular person effect our emotions, and why am I allowing my Emotions to chose my vocabulary? I don't get this. I always fall into that same stupid trap, a trap I created. I have to discover a way to let my brain do the talking without my emotions choosing my words. I love my emotions, but I also like to communicate effectively, and not just to other people, but to myself as well. Our language has incredible power, it's time we use it the right way. But don't get me wrong, we need our emotions, communicating emotionally is sometimes effective in certain situations, but it must be proven that the emotions were necessary at that time.

Righteous Indignation is typically a reactive emotion of anger over mistreatment, insult, or malice.

Mince is to make less severe or harsh. To be straightforward, plain-spoken, or blunt.

Expletive is a profane or obscene expression usually of surprise or anger. Serving to fill up, merely for effect, otherwise redundant.
Euphemism is an inoffensive or indirect expression that is substituted for one that is considered offensive or too harsh.
Diatribe is a forceful and bitter verbal attack against someone or something.
Vitriolic is a harsh or corrosive in tone.
Derogatory is showing a critical or disrespectful attitude. Expressive of low opinion. Bias
Anathema is something or someone that is detested or shunned.

Pleonasm is using extra words that are not needed in sentences. Using more words than necessary

"The danger with insults is that it could ruin your chances of having a good and Productive Conversation, so it can work against you."

When I see horrible people doing horrible things I sometimes use horrible words to describe them, there is nothing unique about that.

"Yes I do get frustrated and angry at the injustices in this world, so I do say hurtful and mean things, but that is not all I say. Besides that, almost every improvement in this world began with someone standing up and getting angry, so the freedoms that you enjoy are the result of people getting angry. Changes did not come from silent people who were to afraid to or to ignorant to speak their mind, they came from people just like me. So if I happen to use some of the bad words used by my culture, then so be it."

""I never said I was a good writer, but I am a good fighter. But I'm not looking for the knockout punch, I'm just looking to stay in the ring long enough to get some punches in and wear down those f*cking criminals, and eventually win by unanimous decision."

"If there is a better way to call you an a**hole, please let me know, I'm all ears."

The 100 Greatest Movie Insults of All Time (youtube) 

I take my expressions of anger and frustration and put them into words, words that express anger and frustration, that's it, don't go any farther then that. When I write words that express my feelings of anger and frustration, they are just words. To explain my anger and frustration I must write more about what I'm trying to communicate, which I do. So please don't get hung up on words that you feel offended by, just keep reading. If you stop to judge something before you finish hearing all the testimony, then you will never be able to understand the message accurately enough. If a spoon is dirty, you wipe the dirt off the spoon, you don't throw the spoon away. You keep the spoon. The spoon is still good, just wipe the dirt off. I don't mind if you ignore the dirt or hate the dirt, as long as you understand the message. Focus on the on the words that reveal important information, and don't let the words that express emotion distract you from understanding the message.

Just because I use certain harsh language, this does not mean that I approve of the words that I have chosen. I use words that are used by my culture, words used by millions of people in my generation, that is where I have learned them. I know how inadequate and rude profanity is, and that these are not all the words in my vocabulary. But when describing emotion, you use words that you are familiar with. I'm not saying that I agree with those words. But we must avoid quickly judging certain words. We should only listen to the message, and not be distracted by certain words used in the message. This is what reading comprehension is all about, which is to accurately understand the true meaning of a particular message. Interpret without judgment, translate the message cleanly before adding your own opinion to it. Then after you have successfully done that, then you can talk about your personal experience that you had with that particular message. And now we can have a real conversation.

I get angry when I learn the truth about injustices and ignorant criminal behavior, just like a lot of people do. But I don't recommend for anyone to use Anger, there are much more effective ways to communicate, and they are also a lot healthier.

Even though I'm embarrassed writing profanity, I really don't mind writing it because it's good to get those things off your chest. Plus, when I do write down my profanity ridden rants, in a way it releases those ugly words from my frustration so they don't build up inside me. So after I write ugly words down I no longer feel connected to those words, they become only some words that were connected to an anger from which they came. So when I do see you in person, I will not embarrass myself like that again and use such ignorant words. But if I accidently do say "f*ck you!", don't take it personally, just call it a Freudian Slip.

If you are the receiver of profanity, You're going to have to get over it. They are empty words that don't carry any useful information, so let it go. Focus on the core message and pay no mind to the extra words used around it. Look at the message the same way as you do an exclamation point, or bold letters, or Upper case letters, it's meant to emphasize and express emotion, it's not meant to distract you from the message, so focus, because I'm going to test you soon. In the mean time, If you ever have some useful information to share, please let me know, I'm all ears.

When I finally stopped being hurt or distracted by peoples harsh words, I was finally free. At that moment I experience a freedom that was so liberating, it was like I have just begun to live for the very first time. It was spiritual, it was enlightening, and it was exhilarating all at once. Till this day I am still thankful for that moment of understanding, it has been a Godsend.

Just because someone doesn't fully understand you, this does not mean that they will never understand you. Don't blame people for not understanding you, learn from them. There are always different ways of explaining something, and the more ways you know how to explain things, the more successful you will be at being understood correctly.

A real conversation, sharing your thoughts because you cannot always say what you're thinking, especially when talking to people face to face. So documenting your personal thoughts is a unique way of writing. Helps you capture some of your ignorance, as well as, it helps you capture some of the words of an earlier time, and not necessarily the person you are today. say what your thinking even if it's wrong or insensitive, you can that they are only words, not totally all my words, mostly the words of my culture, a culture that is evolving. I don't want to make people feel bad, just aware of the something that is bad and not good. The cause's and effect's of our personal life and our business life, which is our responsibility towards each other, and our responsibility to our local surroundings and our global surroundings.

You're going to own those words! First, you cannot own words, you can only use words. Language is a shared resource, a tool that everyone should have access too. To say "In my own words" is a lie. You don't have words of your own unless you created your own language. All you are doing is using words that the human language has created. So all you can do is either use words to transmit some new information, or use words to repeat some old information, or to use words to say something that everyone has no idea what you're saying. To say that you have said something that has never been said before is extremely difficult to prove.

I like to use words that are a symbolic example of a particular dialect used by a particular culture during a particular time in history. But still, most words are only personal and not totally representative of the entire culture. They usually represent a lower percentage of a particular culture. It doesn't express the current mind set. If you wanted to know what a civilization was thinking as a whole, you would see something different, varying degrees of knowledge and awareness cause different opinions about reality.

"If an inadequate education is the source of all our problems, then that means that an effective education is also the cure for all our problems." 

Go f*ck yourself means, Do to yourself what you do to others and see if you like it. Do unto others as you would have them do unto you, don't do to others that you would not like done to you. Golden Rule

Have a Nice day As*hole means, I wish you well, but I would appreciate it if you would stop being ignorant, selfish and immoral. Instead be intelligent, be compassionate, be human.

That's Just F**kingly Great: If "F**king" Is an Adjective, What Is the Adverb? What and how does "f**king" communicate?

"I can be such a jerk sometimes. It's not that I'm being insensitive on purpose, it's that I'm not always aware of how my words and actions are being perceived. I apologize when I'm aware of my insensitivity, so please let me know when I'm not aware of my insensitivity, so that I may offer you my Apologies and also improve my Demeanor and negative Attitude."

Swearing as a Response to Pain
Swearing as a Response to Pain—Effect of Daily Swearing Frequency

Speaking Publicly and Publicly Writing your Personal Thoughts can be Dangerous.
But I grew up doing dangerous things. So I learned that danger is not the only reason why you do something or not do something. There are many reasons not to do something that are beyond the fact that something is dangerous. That is why we have risk assessments. We can also base our success rate on previous experiences. Because things are not as dangerous when you have experience it before, and understand your abilities and limits. But that is not all, publicly sharing your personal thoughts is dangerous because of the chance of being misunderstood by others. But on the other hand, there is also a risk of not sharing your personal thoughts. Dammed if you do, and dammed if you don't. Risk assessment is very difficult when it comes to determining peoples reactions. Try to share more then just your personal thoughts, and understand, that it's risky if you do and risky if you don't. Speaking your mind has risks. Know when to speak, know what to speak, know how to speak, and know why you speak.

"When people speak publicly, or write publicly, there will always be some criticism, but criticism is not always bad, sometimes criticism makes you more aware of how people are understanding you, so criticism could actually benefit you and make you a better communicator."

"Name calling or angry tones are a waste of energy and time. When you learn to talk and communicate more effectively and Calmly you will learn very quickly that you will have much better results with people and situations when you refrain from anger and name calling. And you will also learn that there is very little need for drama and name calling when communicating."

You don't want to keep that shit in your head, writing it down releases it and makes it easier to delete it from your mind.

If someone who had Tourette Syndrome never heard obscene words or socially inappropriate and derogatory remarks, what would they say? What if they heard nothing but kind words, wouldn't they be screaming out nice things? You're Beautiful!!

People who curse a lot have better vocabularies than those who don't, study finds, I guess you have to ask, if your vocabulary is so large, why can't you find better words to communicate with?

"I've learned over time that you have to have a very high tolerance for a**holes and ignorant people. Because if you don't you will end up acting like an ignorant a**hole yourself. So I'm going to create a course that will give people the necessary skills and techniques that will give a person the tolerance and the appropriate responses to other peoples moronic behavior. I'm going to call the course "High Tolerance for Assholes 101". Believe it or not I have over 10,000 people signed up for the course already, mostly from people who are planning to work in government, banks, corporations and in the media."  So the lesson here is to rewrite this paragraph so that there is no vulgar language and no sterotyping, and then name the 10 things that you would teach in this course?

To call someone stupid, is stupid. Whether you are calling someone a moron, an idiot, an ignoramus, or any other harsh insulting words, but never the "R" word, because you clearly insult everyone, including yourself. The important thing is that people should not be insulted when called stupid, or any other harsh word, even if you're calling yourself stupid. It is merely a question of, "why is this thinking flawed and incorrect?" Was it a simple mistake that you made? Or an indicator that the process used in your decision making needs to be improved so that you can achieve higher quality results from your decisions? And that is only one way to correctly handle insults. Don't be distracted by the harshness of a word or words, just simply answer the question "why is this thinking flawed and incorrect?" Or simply ask "what is stupid?" or just answer with one word, "why". And the more questions that you answer that improve your thinking, the more intelligent you will become. You will still make mistakes, but now you will solve them a lot faster, and you will also make fewer mistakes. 

There's nothing wrong with calling yourself stupid as long as you don't take it personally.

It's the people who are not offended or distracted by profanity are the people I admire most. Don't get distracted by minor irrelevant details, the most important thing is did you understand the message? Once people fully understand how important the transfer of information is, we will communicate more effectively and efficiently, and at a much higher level of understanding.

The Bottom Line
I don't want to encourage Cynicism, I just want people to be aware and to understand that things need to be taken seriously. I Don't want People to Hate People for their Ignorance, I just want people to do what they can to stop injustices and corruption, without making things worse, and without lowering yourself to that level of insanity and total disregard for life.

And on top of that, who you are in person is different then what you write. So don't ever believe that you know someone just because you have read some of the words that they have written. That's like when people believe that actors and authors are just like the characters that they portray. These types of assumptions are illogical and stupid. It's just a lot easier to inquire and ask questions then to believe that you know the answers, like with prejudice and bias.

Just because someone uses bad words does not make them a bad person, and just because someone uses ignorant words this does not mean that they're ignorant. You can use logical deduction and say bad people use bad words and ignorant people use ignorant words, but with so many variables, there can be no accurate method of deductive reasoning, not until you answer the questions of How Much? When? Why and Where? How much of this language is used? When is this language used? Why is this language used? And where is this language used?

"I look at some of my writing to be like A Warning Label for Life, there's a lot of dangers in life, but there's also a lot of joy. Avoiding the dangers takes a lot of work, and this responsibility should never be taken lightly. Learn to maximize your fun."

There is always risk involved with communicating to a large audience. You can't guarantee that everyone will understand your message the same way. So you have to play the odds. In order to communicate to one group you may have to sacrifice communicating to another because of their beliefs. You have to learn to speak to everyone at the same time, and use words that have no bias and no preference, just express the facts and a clear understanding of those facts. Save the stupid comments for your standup comedy routine, where everyone clearly understands that your being an idiot for laughs and not trying to communicate something important.
