You have a reputation! Now be sure to keep your name before the public. Making Waves will drop over time. It is merely a distraction until you've achieved Person of Some Importance status.
You can gain Making Waves in a wide variety of places, including publishing Short Stories; using items like Incendiary Gossip; and inviting friends to social events in your Lodgings.
Wiki note: Your level of Making Waves is halved every week when Time, the Healer arrives.
