I now have a habit

...of writing poems in the body of an email. This has been going on for some time. I guess I feel most at home in the message composition box. I then copy and paste the poem into Word and print off a copy. Most of the poems in the manuscript I'm working on now have been composed in this manner. I think it has influenced the overall tone of the work.

I guess, when it .com's right down to it, it doesn't matter how you get @ it.

Ha! That's terrible. My fear in a nutshell.

That's actually very cool, you know? And I couldn't come up with any kind of respectable pun after gm's comment. I bow to a master.

Thanks, Paula Jane. I hope it soon passes. It feels like a bit of a crutch.

SMS, do you mean txt as in texting on a cell?

I now have a habit of checking your blog and wishing there was new content (she said wistfully...).

Ha! I have a good excuse. I had a brainwave. And it turned out to be a lengthy one. So I've been writing. Writing! Yay!
