Well I figured out what's wrong with the first page of "The Demise of Moe Silverman". It is locked and can't be edited. Don't know how to fix it. Word, old version. Anyway, I copied and pasted then typed in the first page. If you are interested, check my port in the Longer Works folder. It won't be there for long.
I finished one of the stories I've been plugging away at called "The Demise of Moe Silverman"
It's quite long (3638 words) I attempted to put it in my port and it did everything but the first page. If I want to post it, how can I do it? Spit in half maybe? Five pages in one part and six in another?
Make a Part 1 and a Part 2 *Smile*
A file that size should still fit in one Static item.

If you maxed out the drag & drop, you can split the file into two on your computer, drag and drop each part to a create new Static item page (two of them) using the Simple option, and then copy/paste the second half to the bottom of the first half in the create new Static item page, and save that one. Close the other (extra) page without saving.

Are you sure you're not talking about dogs? *Laugh*
Amen to that, dragonwoman!


Words are our true gods!

I don’t think I could live in a world without books.
Today is National Read a Book Day! Whether you're a sci-fi fanatic, a non-fiction buff, or a not-so-often reader, there is a book out there just for you. Entertainment isn't limited to what you can watch on a screen or hear through your speakers - books bring whole new worlds to life! So, switch off the electronics and turn some pages for a while. *Smile*
I've been reading some of the blogs on here... Some are really disguised books, trust me *Laugh*
Escape this horrid reality!
Enter a whole new realm of your imagination as those words slowly creep into your mind, turning the unbelievable into the believable and casting you into places you never knew existed...
Come into my world!

Here's another Garfield and Jon conversation about coffee.

Jon: Garfield, you'll never find happiness at the bottom of a coffee cup.
Garfield: I beg to differ.
Jon and Garfield look in his cup together.
Garfield: Look, there's some right there in the corner.
Jon: By golly, you're right

There’s none of this “In the corner” BS about it. The happiness is infused throughout the entire cup of elixir.

I’m not addicted, we just have a mutually beneficial, symbiotic relationship.

Cups of pure happiness!

I love you coffee; you make me glow.
You make me smile, I love you so.
My nerves don't like you, but what do they know
@ Fangus They do seem to have common grounds... *Laugh*
Oh, ya! *Coffeep*

Garfield and Lilli and I all feel the same way about coffee. “There’s no such thing as too much coffee!”

My coffee mug is a porcelain Krug from Germany that holds one liter and I drink 3 to 4 of them full a day. Sometimes 5. I do not get headaches or a buzz and I have no trouble drinking one full at 11pm and being asleep in an hour or less. If I go without for a couple days it doesn’t bother me either.

I like the taste of coffee, it’s the only reason I drink it.

If only I could be respected without having to be respectable.

You can be.

One method:
First determine who you want to be respected by then, using their rules of behavior define respectability then live your life that way.

Another method:
Live your life so you do the least harm and most good and you will be respected by others that feel as you do.

I prefer the second method.
How many people work on more than one writing project at once? I didn't used to until yesterday. I was working on "The Demise of Moe Silverman"(don't know if anyone noticed, but he's changed his last name from Simpson to Silverman. Anyway, my eyes fell on a list of first sentences I'd compiled and I was inspired by the first one. Thus was born "Blood Will Out". But how do I finish my unfinished at that rate? Can't discard as to me it would be like killing a child. I know, I know...
