Sorry...I've been MIA as of late. I'll be writing tonight.

Margaret, if you're posting (or even just copying) from a word processor like MS Word, that may be the culprit. They do tend to toss in wonky clutter sometimes -- or, if not clutter, tags whose visual equivalent doesn't appear on screen while you're writing. So you might end up with bold text where there wasn't any, weird font sizing, etc. I went in and fixed your post from yesterday.
This might also explain why Shawn's post from the other day had those "" in it after I adjusted its timestamp.
I'd recommend using something like Notepad instead. Less clutter, and you still get the security of knowing your post won't just vanish if Blogger decides to eat it. :)
Sorry, no needling of anyone intended. I just think we've got some great writers here, and I'd love to see people writing more often. The dry spells simply aren't as much fun.
Here's one for free: Needling me never motivates me.
I'm glad to see folks are writing. That's neat. Hi and welcome and welcome back.

I think Erik/Generik is just a little overwhelmed with real-world work at the moment. (That's what going away on a European vacation for weeks on end will do to you, I guess.)
He, along with everyone else, has a standing invite to come back and write whenever they get a chance.
I do sometimes feel bad for the new people, though. It's been pretty quiet here.

Shawn, you were posting for "weird games," last Friday's topic. So I changed the timestamp to move it to that day.

Thanks for the welcome, Fred!
I think a lot of you already know me as the capper ArchHallJr. I am an aspiring writer (aren't we all) trying to find my genre. I know its fiction and I'm leaning toward speculative but I don't know if I'm geared for it. I mean, I love to read it but I get intimidated when I sit down to draft. (Sigh) I think it's time management in my case, of which I have very little between a full time job and four kids. But your stories and pieces don't write themselves so you have to schedule that time and stick to it. Ha. Easier said than done. I'm thinking of locking myself in my home office Saturday mornings. I wonder how long it will take before I'm served divorce papers. ;)
I've been reading back in the archives and I am really impressed with what I've read. Great stuff. My hope, besides getting some mind muscles exercised and to enjoy other folk's writing, is to add my limited talent to this fine pool of very talented individuals.
