It is likely that your company already has many rules and regulations that are in effect for its employees. Whether or not it's acceptable to smoke in the building, where and when employees are allowed to eat lunch, and even as simple as what time the employee should report to work each day, there are many rules that most of the employees already know.

Step one: Make sacrifices to get the book written
Charles Bock, author of Beautiful Children, has said,
"Truth is I worked on this novel for 10 years. Not ten years of watching Seinfeld at 11 PM. Ten years of a high priority in my life. When I was dating the woman who is now my wife, I would only go out with her two nights a week because I couldn't give more time to… Continue

Since my arrival in Bavaria, the action has been non-stop. It usually is with all the sightseeing we like to get in. On my first day there, all of my cousins and friends came to greet me and my family.

I am a big fan of Shel Silverstein, one of the best poets I've ever read (W.B. Yeats not withstanding). I have been re-accquainted with his writing thanks to my children. I recently posted a personal look at how I write. This one might work just as well.

I just received a wonderful email.
I signed up to receive the newsletter from one of my favorite authors, Nina Bangs.
I credit her with my having a blog. Three years ago, I wanted to contact her, but to do so I needed to belong to the web ring Out Of The Blogosphere. To do that I needed to join Blogger.
It's been a wild ride since then.
I've also continued to read and enjoy Nina's style of writing.

Isn’t it crazy how dependent we’ve become of that device that connects us with others?
Working as an over-the-phone interpreter, I literally live on the phone. For eight hours a day, I receive calls with only a couple of seconds in between. Grueling? Yep, it is. But I absolutely love, love my job. Why? Because I delight in speaking. So what better way to best enjoy what I do than to be able to speak in two languages?
But that talking also carries into my spiritual life. I… Continue
