* drums her fingers *

Tex, my email server has rejected over three-hundred
pieces of email, just today.

Gotta help me out. What is the server name for
your email? As least three or four letters so
I can run a search to find you.

sequential letters, Tex.

------------------------------------------------
Me book? hmmm, you two ever tried to write one?
It's alot more difficult than I thought..It's a creative fiction based on many factual events..Then I let my imagination soar...

Disipline is a problem, thus is the amateur, or is it..

Editing later is the way to go,right?
Do writers keep it all? then edit?

copyedited lottsa books...mostly college texts, but have helped on fiction, too...

yes, editing later...the *cliche* is "writing is rewriting."

another famous one? "writing is easy--you just open a vein and bleed." lol...

yup to the discipline...target so many words per day and hit around that, no matter what... keep going. Get it down, first.

Then when you feel story is over...???

time to review... a pro may need only a line edit, then a copyedit... amateur may easily need much deletion, *some* revisions before being ready for a line edit...

regardless...cuz you can't know in advance...the major thing is "get it down," the whole story that you "intend*

Dusty, sure nice to have you back.

Many have missed you.

Writing stories, hmm, some work from almost twenty
years back, my first year of junior college.

http://www.purlgurl.net/~callgirl/cybeblu1.html

Unedited, as is, first or second English class.

Ok, my androids will now allow you to send email.

Do not forget to duck if a laser beam comes
blasting out of your monitor.

...just in case. Roberta has my personality.

Purl, off topic.

You claim that you are such a great trader, investor or whatever...

I'm also a women, and I know that i am just as talented at stocks as you if not better. The difference is that i don't announce it to the world.

Oh gosh, do I ever understand your comment.

I took some journalism classes at a junior college.
Kinda fun. Not much funding for the college. Classes
were held in old homes alongside the college,
homes bought by the city and given to the college.

Instructor gave me ok grades but always added,

"Your article would never be published. Tone it down."

Ha!

I switched over to taking classes at a remote
campus located on a military base. Military
Police at the main entrance always gave me
a hard time, "Your name is Okpulot Taha?
What kind of name is that?" Sometimes they
would allow me on base, sometimes not.

I was driving our old one ton rust bucket then.
One MP told me our truck was too dangerous to
allow on base. Something about one headlight
pointing up, the other, pointing down.

I told him I would turn off my headlights so
none would become confused. He instructed me
to turn around and leave.

After that, I decided to try some English classes.
Boy, what an adventure that turned out to be.

Journalism is fun.

Will you be replacing Dan Rather?

Not exactly what I had in mind. Was thinking more like you in shorts, hand shovel, tank top, planting some bulbs. Knowing you a little better now, be more more like you nekkid driving a combination backhoe, dozer or crane. Either is jus fine wit me:) Have to see any manyana though, as my blankee and bed is a callin.

Well, the backside of my garden has become
significantly overgrown in more recent years.

I need to do some weeding out.

I have not had time to work on our website
for almost a year. Our family website is a toy
and of low priority.

Thank you!

Well, boys, more Home & Gardens pictures or not?

I know yardwork is not one of your favorites,
probably boring for you.
