Angry? Write and delete!

This campaign tip (no. 107) was published on Wednesday, 17th April 2019
Subject line says it all

Or most of it

There are times when campaigning that things won't go your way. And you get used to that - and you'll see comments through these pages. But there will be - hopefully a few times - where you'll be really angry. After all, if you're really involved it becomes personal ... and if it's personal, it's emotional

There are times you'll jump in and need to strike while the iron is hot. But also consider write and save locally, or write and delete. Looking back at anger can cast you in a poor light when you might have been better just to shrug

So - what makes you angry? Looking back, looking at a root cause, it comes to people. Perhaps better to pity those people that they have (intentionally or accidentally) done something to cause such anger.

These pages are written by Graham Ellis of Melksham, Wiltshire. Overlapping a life in IT and IT training, with running a hotel and campaigning for improved public transport, Graham has never been quiet - though he's starting to wind down gently now. He no longer takes overnight guests and has stepped doen from the "Community Rail Officer" role which he accidentally aquired. So he now has more time to write pages such as these and to travel in the UK. He'll be delighted to speak with your group or take a look through your case or camapaign, but be alerted that his time is not limitless even now, and he still has to keep the wolf from the door.

What a difference a campaign makes!

It probably wouldn't have happened without a strong community campaign with which I have been involved. Most days through 2019 I'll be sharing a thought, an idea, a way of working or an experience.
