Thank you mmainar. Here's wishing you a happy and prosperous new year, from the UK. First tip for 2014 – beware of international raconteur Vic-k. He is, together with his fetid cat Fluff, a habitual visitor to this otherwise fine forum. DON'T LEND HIM ANY MONEY! In fact, best ignore him altogether. I didn't, and look what happened to me:

Young mmainar,
you can see from the above response, that you have deposited yourself in what is tantamount to a literary cesspit!:( AKA Scrivener! You may, if you see fit (and are wise), liken Scrivener, to a leaking, creaking old pirate ship, barely able to stay afloat upon the tempestuous Sea of Literary Endeavour and an ever expanding area of nefarious usage.
You may liken Scrivener, to a cross between The Ship of Fools: Image https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ship_of_fools and a Marie Céleste like ghost-ship, albeit, one crewed by by the aforementioned fools.
There is no escape from Scrivener (save for a lonely walking of the plank… Image)
Welcome aboard, young mmainar. Best wishes to you too.

Furthermore, I was happily reading through Vic-k and a three word story story from the beginning, and my bookmark fell out. Darned if I can find where I was.

Young Twolane, Is it really necessary to vent your frustration on other innocent creatures. The humble fly plays a considerable role in the great scheme of things. Why not ease the tension by sending poison pen PMs to other members of Scriv's crew. :? Except for the other feline crew members, obviously, most of them serve no useful purpose at all… well none that springs immediately to mind.
Happy New Year Young Twolane
