I've Got Nothing

For the last several weeks I've been posting my Friday Snippet on Thursday night. But I did not get it prepared in time this week. Spent too much time with Harry Potter and to tell the truth that is where my druthers lie at the moment.

Last week it took me four hours to get my Friday Snippet prepared because of problems with Blogger platform getting snippy about formating. After several attempts to fix paragraph breaks one by one in the compose side of the platform, I finally had to do it directly in HTML. Putting in the paragraph tags in a 1000 plus word document is just not something I feel up to doing right now. Neither my mind nor my eyes are capable of the focus needed for working in code in 10pt font.

So I will work at getting part 2 of Rag Doll Babies and Million Dollar Maybes ready to post sometime tomorrow, Friday.

Meanwhile, I'm going to give myself the treat of cracking open Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince for the first time ever. I probably won't get very far though. Between eye-strain and sleep-deprivation, I'm pretty much due for some hours of unconsciousness.

5 tell me a story:

Yeah - on Blogger I normally have to put in linebreaks manually (just by pressing Return) and to put in italics by hand. I look at it as an opportunity to do a final copyedit. :-)

Although I haven't used Word in quite some time, I believe you can export in HTML. Now, normally that exports some horrible mass of Microsoft-only HTML which is unusable, but I think there _might_ be a stripped down version. 'Export as plain HTML?' or something like that? Maybe I'm making it up...

That's weird; I just cut and paste straight from word and I get indenting and everything. Takes me about 2 seconds.

I wonder why your formatting doesn't stay?

I have to reformat, too.

Enjoy the day off, the reading, and the SLEEP. You've earned it all.

I have to reformat for my wordpress blog, too. I typically copy the section into notepad first, and then use the html window to paste the text in and add paragraph breaks. It's a pain, but I've got it down into somewhat of a system now. :-)

I'm glad you were able to do the formatting so we could read this week!

I have to add the paragraphy breaks too, but just hitting return takes care of it. Sorry it's been such a bother.
