What the heck does that have to do with anything, you may well wonder! We tend to have short, thick fingers. Hmm. Pretty often we have short, thick waists, too, come to think of it. So we are doubly damned in this era of high fashion models and text-messaging ;-). Besides the fact I live out (waaay out) in the countryside and must drive about 5 miles to get a cell signal. So, old-fashioned me, I'm typing my text in from my laptop ;-). For some reason the formatting doesn't stick (I've contacted tech support and I'm sure they'll educate me appropriately :-). But until they can help me out, I have huge single paragraphs that run the length of entire chapters.
Don't get me wrong--it's still readable, but it looks daunting. I can just imagine ADHD readers' heads exploding when they glimpse my first chapter (maybe that's just the certified teacher in me, though). I noticed some of the other writers actually have theirs looking like you could read it on a cell phone--I wonder if they texted (yikes--is that proper conjugation?) their text in from a cell phone.
So, I'm just waiting to see what I need to do to make my stuff more readable before I post too much more. I'm liking my story thus far, I'm liking the TextNovel.com site (other than this little snare) and their founder. I haven't chatted with any of the other board members, but I'm sure they're decent, too :-).
Maybe tomorrow after I drop my kid off at his summer program I'll try seeing if I can access the site on my cell phone. I'm curious to see what it looks like on the cell phone screen, too.
Once I'm happier with the look of it, I'll link so you can pop right over to my story (because of course you will :-). Until then I'm afraid you're eyes will bleed if my chapters are too long. Perhaps I need to study the venue a bit more...
Anyhow--I'm having fun with writing my TextNovel--still learning the ropes!
Keep writing (and reading)!
