Okay Red, I have succeeded in shattering my own nerves so I am going to go do something constructive outside...in the rain...and the cold...to get my mind off the Challenge. Thanks for kinda looking after me. I appreciate your kindness.

No worries Wren. I don't always check my email everyday. But if it looked good on the preview then it will turn out okay most likely. Some people don't realize they can hit the preview button so that advice is more to them. Every once in a while a piece gets through with weird symbols instead of quotes but most everyone realizes it is just a glitch and they understand. The judges also know that happens sometimes so don't stress about it! HUGS

Wren - I've entered plenty of challenges and ALWAYS copy and paste. I've never had any problems - I'm sure your submission will be fine.
Hallo, hallo, hallo Shann and all my other FW friends. I've missed you lots. Glad to be back!

Give me the love that leads the way,
The faith that nothing can dismay,
The hope no disappointments tire,
The passion that will burn like fire.
Let me not sink to be a clod,
Make me Thy fuel, Flame of God.

Thank you, Shann. I betcha I don't do that again but I feel better having heard from you. It has taken me until today to figure out how to get to the msg on the board when it is not on the first page. I got a msg in my email to check this forum but nothing new was there. Duhhhhh, it took me stumbling around on the southern porch to find it. @Joan, thank you. I feel better today. I thought well, I did the best I could. I didn't wait on my help so I have only me to blame but...I got a handle on it now and I hope to be ready for the next one. You guys are fantastic and have made my day!

As I've mentioned in another post, I just wrote a whole book of tips--not just for the challenge but helpful for all creative writing. Check out Bring Your Writing to Life here: http://www.sparrowsflight.net/Amys-books.htm

Have a question: How do I put italics into a plain text document (for submission to the Challenge)? Likely, I'm just overlooking something. Thanks in advance.

For italics, use <i>text goes here</i>
Bold: <b>text goes here</b>

And you can imbed them to make it bold and italic, like this <b><i>text goes here</i></b>
