Sooooo good!!! I was laughing and crying the whole time. Letting us into her and her father's battle's with cancer was very moving. Seeing how their family relations formed and played such a key role in how they dealt with things was an honor. Loved it!!! It made me love and appreciate my family, yet want to be part of their's too. I highly recommend it.

Book List - Wish List

I'm going to add my wish list here!

writing
Date Posted: 7/16/2013 |

http://www.forbes.com/2010/05/03/better-business-writing-leadership-careers-tips.html

 

Start by using short, declarative sentences. Never use a long word where a short one will do.

 

Never use a foreign phrase, a scientific word, or any kind of jargon if you can think of an English equivalent.

 

say what you need to say, and move on. If your big idea isn't in the first paragraph, move it there.

 

use active verbs instead of passive verbs. Active verbs help to energize your prose. Instead of writing "The meeting was led by Tom," write: "Tom led the meeting."

 

Know when to use "that" and "which." "That" introduces essential information in what's called a "restrictive clause." "Which" introduces extra information in a "nonrestrictive clause." Here's an example: "I'm interested in speaking with you about our new product, which has the potential to increase sales." The second clause provides extra information, and it isn't essential to the first clause. Therefore, "which" is correct. In a sentence such as "Computers are the only products that we sell," the clause "that we sell" is essential to the meaning of the sentence, so the correct word is "that." You can't remove the "that" clause without changing the meaning of the sentence.

 
 

Organize, capture and share your photos. You can upload any photo or you can link to your photo albums outside of BB. Currently, you can upload 25 photos or photo albums.
