Just wanted to say hello!

Thanks Alex for feedback. Will make noted changes.

Thanks kt6500. Will make change to "wept." Re: "Kerfuffle"--I checked etymology of word and it dates back to 16 th Century Scottish origins as "curfuffle." Word used

Thanks KT6500. Definitely too long. I'm presently contemplating breaking up most of my chapters. Yes, "Gallimaufry" is a strange word not used very often. Appreciate your views.

No worry, Don. If it were truthful, your wife would probably kill you. Glad to see anything from you -- even a shout.

If I wrote a memoir of my childhood I'd have to go into Witness Protection.

Thank you Alex and KT6550 for your positive feedback and suggestions. I will certainly take them into consideration. I have been very busy with our new grandchild so I haven't had a chance to c

You're welcome, Mike. Cant relate to you're "Funny" tho since i neber mist misteaks in my stuf.

Thanks Alex. Funny how obvious my error in title was. Funny how writers can sometimes miss blatant mistakes. I appreciate your comments--you are the first person to critique my novel!

An indent shows there is a new paragraph. The first sentence in a chapter or scene doesn't need that.
AlexScribe October 18 2018 11:25:55
You're right, Don. 20 of my English langauage fictions, multi genres, all US: 4 with & 16 without initial indents. Maybe CAN & UK more consistent.
Don Roble October 17 2018 17:45:48
In fiction, there is no space between paragraphs unless the focus changes. Non-fiction is different.
Don Roble October 17 2018 17:44:22
In fiction the first paragraph is never indented.
AlexScribe October 13 2018 07:23:15
As I did here, I sometimes omit the indent on para 1 of story/chapter as some books do. No special rhyme or reason as to when. Sorry for the confusion. V5 full speed ahead.
Routh October 13 2018 00:00:56
I'm guessing you forgot as I just tested and the indent is preserved for the first line. I'm going to presume this is all fixed and go back to v5 dev now.
Routh October 12 2018 22:41:46
Did you forget the indent on the first paragraph Alex or was that chopped?
AlexScribe October 12 2018 21:54:12
KT, there are only 4 f's in pfffft.
AlexScribe October 12 2018 21:52:52
Routh, just updated my latest with the first few para fixed: worked fine. Will fix the rest later. Thanks.
