I WON!!! I WON!!! I WON!!!

Thank you Scrivener for making my first NaNoWriMo far less painful than it would have been without you!

Oooh! Look at my special prize! I can't wait to vanquish it!!! 8)

Hmmm, isn't there some writing rule out not using too many exciting marks?

Congratulations Ellen M! :D

And watch out for vic-k. A careful reading of his post demonstrates his true intentions: he's after your whiskey...

Oh, whiskey. Tell you what, you guys bring the whiskey -- make sure it's Bailey's Irish Cream -- and then I'll have some in my house for absconding with. Deal?

Probably not. You guys probably don't want to deal with people who end their sentences with prepositions, huh?

Mistress Ellen,
Aboard Scrivener, it's best to assume that the majority of the people you will encounter aboard this rat infested dirty stinking, leaky old tub, wouldn't know what a preposition was, even if its definition was tattooed onto the inside of their eyelids, let alone when and where to use it.

However, in attempting to assuage, your concern, let me point you toward https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9OLxLK_ ... DBEB7D975C
Hope this helps
Congratulations on winning NaNoWriMo, although aboard Scrivener, it may prove to be a pyrrhic victory

PS Welcome aboard, Scrivener, The Ship Of Fools. Mistress Ellen :wink:

Ellen! :shock:
These aren't the forums to be prepositioning online on!
Oh, and, er, you'll buy the whiskey for me to abscond with if vic-k brings the Bailey's? Did I get that right?

How do you think I asked my wife to marry me if I didn't know what a preposition was?

Nom,
Are y' having a pre-senior moment? I'm sure I have an email, wherein you detail the events leading up to your marriage. Didn' you have to, bribe, her? :?

Nah, you're getting confused. I didn't have to bribe my future wife, just the future inlaws.
