Thanks. Obviously I am hopeless. I feel humiliated.

Some hours later: seems I finally figured it out. TY for your help. It was that last lady who got me through this thing, but thanks to all of you who tried.

It took me a couple of tries, but it finally worked. I am utterly exhausted. TY. I was ready to throw in the towel. I am in your debt.

Hi, Mrd

I see your challenge(s) and want you to know there is help.  Ahavati has given you sound advice.  If you have further challenges, please let me know the details, and I will try to help.

Do you use a computer to type your poems?  Do you know how to copy and paste text on your computer (or phone, or tablet, or i-Pad)?

Respond to these and let's take it from there.

I am confused. Are we not to number our poems as #1, #2... asn it states in the instructions, I was told that I should be putting 1/30...which is correct?
"Your entries must have its number on top corresponding to the date of its posting, then a title in bold text, and lastly the body of your poem. Example:

Gahddess, I've always understood that either is fine!

Moonshine - I look forward to getting to know you and reading some of your work. Unfortunately, the cut-off for registration was the end of March.

It doesn't matter how you number it. The example is just that, an example. We don't care if you use 1, One Number One, #1, 1/30 whatever. As long as it's numbered, we're happy.

Look at me, posting poems in the MORNING, and not having to worry about it for the rest of the day!! Who IS this girl??? There's no way this is going to last but I'll ride the wave as long as I can.

Amazing poems so far, everyone!!
