    Re: GRRR! I hate this! Someone give me some advice!

    One of my favorite quotes. I've seen it several different ways but this is the most common.

    "A good plan violently executed now is better than a perfect plan later."

    Is it just my computer? The headlines of the last four posts are black instead of blue. Ve-e-e-e-ry interesting.

    Had a nice, long, note that cyberspace promptly ate.

    Irritating. I actually had polite stuff to say to Corey.

    Guys, what's the code here to italicize something? Thanking you in advance.

    Re: GRRR! I hate this! Someone give me some advice!

    First type the < (It's that mark that shares your comma key.)

    Then, an i (for italics)

    Then the >

    Start typing the stuff you want to quote.

    When you're through quoting,

    Type another <

    Then a slash mark / (to kill it)

    And yet another i

    Then finish the whole thing off with another >

    (Yay, you did it! Or not.) :-)

    Hi Corey,
    I'll add a little bit of advice although by this point it's a little repititive.

    I'm a professional writer. I have a MA and a BA in Creative Writing so I not only write but I've just started teaching as well.

    Back when I was in school I got two of the best pieces of advice I've ever heard.

    1. If we only write when we're inspired we'll only do it about once a year.

    2. If you become a writer for money you're wasting your time. There are a thousand easier ways to make a million bucks.

    On average I write about 2,000 to 10,000 words a day. However, I only write about four or five days a week. But every writer is unique in their own way. Just find what works for you and you'll be fine.

    Let's see if this works ...

    I want this sentence italicized.

    (And if it worked, thanks, Kitty!)

    Butt+Chair=Manuscript

    I'm probably jumping into this late, but think of it this way.

    Butt+Chair=Manuscript.

    The people who make a living from writing don't have the luxury of writer's block. They just write.

    Re: Butt+Chair=Manuscript

    Thank you for the response, bro. I appreciate you taking the time to do so, and what you say makes a lot of sense. I will indeed save my writing, whether or not I think it'su useful, as you, Mark, and Jeanne have let me know, I'll never know when I might need it, as it actually may come in handy at a later time.

    And I should apologize for the poor punctuation and grammar in my posts. If it makes any difference, I DO indeed know how to spell and how to punctuate, but, when Im in the moment, and trying like mad to get my thoughts down, I sometimes miss the odd comma (or in this case apostrophe) and spelling.
