ok. I feel really stupid. I have written "something" and I don't know how to post it. It is in my draft folder and it has a title in bold but how to get the 1/30 *above* the title is my problem. I have a phobia about forms and instructions; if there's an ambiguity I immediately embrace it. So...I have it in my draft folder. I want to get the 1/30 *above* the bold title. Should I go outside DUP and suddenly learn how to use Microsoft Word so I can do this or is there--surely, Dear Lord, a simpler way.

I am not having a good day. And I feel like there's a sabot in the works. Help.

Don't worry about it, Mrd. We all go through it the first time.

Just copy the poem in your draft and paste it in the challenge thread. Before you hit submit, type the number above it. Make sure the title is bolded under the number so we don't count it in the word count.

Or . . .what is easiest for some is to include the number above the title in their drafts so everything is copied before pasting.

let me try the latter

after i rewrite, clean it up.

I delayed doing all this as I had hoped an example would be provided for those of us with rare but real phobias. This is worse by far than writing the "poem" itself. And I realize this is neither yr fault nor reponsibility (and I am so grateful for the above and beyond the team does) but...still...arggggghhhhh.

Ah. I feel so much better

An example of what? Copying/pasting really isn't that difficult ( I don't feel ). Just make sure you're in before midnight your time or the sandworm will get ya.

Remember this challenge isn't about the quality of poems, spelling, grammar, etc. It's about writing every day.

Look: what is easy for a person with legs is difficult for one without. I have tried to follow your instructions and the results are as shown. I do not know how to do this.

Okay 1) I'm tired. No. Exhausted. You think your days been rough? 2) Someone else please take this while I go educate myself on what works for one doesn't work for another.  I clearly had no idea.

Never mind. I'll try and do it outside the formal framework. TY at least for trying.
