Spring is beginning
Flowers are blooming
Rain is falling
Children are playing
Birds are signing
Grass is growing
And I am sneezing
This is an interesting book to read, because of the differences among the authors. They were able to discuss corruption from different cultural, educational, and economic backgrounds/viewpoints.
Here are a few of the main points:
- Corruption hurts life outcomes in a variety of ways. Economically, it diverts resources away from their most productive uses and acts like a regressive tax that supports the lifestyles of the elites at the expense of everyone else.
- Corruption incentives the best and brightest to spend their time gaming the system, rather than innovating or creating new wealth.
- As the difficulties and risk of corrupt behavior rise, fewer people will behave corruptly.
- While auditing doesn’t sound like a glamorous nation-building activity, it is a critical part of ensuring that governments are spending public money responsibly and effectively.
- Corruption is a cancer. At first, it can look small and harmless. Before you know it, it has taken over your entire body. Likewise, the losses from corruption can start small, but in the end the damage is enormous.
Writers spend a lot of time writing, but that’s only part of the job.
Writers must also read constantly. They should read books, magazines, news articles, fiction, and non-fiction.
Writers need to go out into the world and explore. Writers need to try new things and have adventures. If you spend all your time locked up in your house reading or writing, what will you have to write about?
One major benefit of being a writer, I can turn anything into a work related activity. If I spent the whole day reading, I was working. Going to the movies, museums, hiking, amusement parks, and having all sorts of adventures may be fun, but it is also research.
As a writer, my brain is always thinking about how I would describe everything I see, hear, or do.
I am a writer and I am always working.
In case you didn’t know, Rednecks know how to have fun.
A writer uses words to pour their heart and soul onto the page. As a result, they leave themselves open to the world. What happens next is out of their control.
People may react with love, kindness, or admiration. They have the ability to inspire the writer to continue their work. They lift up the writer’s self-esteem and give the writer a feeling of power,
People may also respond with ridicule and hate. They have the ability to rip out the writer’s heart and stomp on it until the writer is left broken and dejected.
Writing can be dangerous. Writers need to have an inner-strength to continually put their words and ideas out there for the world to see.
