Hello Owlets! Arria here. I hope you all had a fun Halloween. On behalf of the entire OWLS team, thank you very much for supporting us through our “Dreamers” blog tour last month. It was a very meaningful and touching blog tour to us. This month is our 11th blog tour. What?! Wow. We’ve come a long way. Our Chief Creative Officer LynLyn assigned us quite a difficult topic this November, but we participants will do our best. This November, we OWLS will discuss “Diplomacy”.
Whenever we have a disagreement with someone, we use our words to express our thoughts and opinions. However, there are those who would rather use fists instead of words, those who forget that being “right” isn’t the most important thing, and those who lose sight of compromising and acknowledging differences in opinion and belief. Diplomacy is an important skill and tactic that not many of us have or are able to utilize properly especially in “social media wars” for sensitive issues and anime discourse—we just express our opinions without really listening. For this month’s prompt, we will be exploring some of the best negotiations scenes in pop culture media and discuss how effective these diplomatic moments are and what we can learn from them. We will also discuss why communication and listening are important traits to have and whether or not there are other means to enforce peace.
“Diplomacy” Blog Tour Schedule
Please continue to support us in this month’s blog tour, as well. We’re all challenged but also excited to write about this difficult topic.
We welcome new members. If you are interested in joining Otaku Warriors for Liberty & Self-Respect (OWLS), please send us an e-mail. One of us will assist you. Don’t forget to follow us on Twitter, Facebook, and Youtube. Thank you.
Have a lovely day. Cheers!
Free to be ME,
Arria (OWLS Secretary)
