Now I have another movie to watch! Tom Hanks is our former school secretary's first cousin! She told me he is just as nice in person as he is portrayed on the screen.

If Charles Dickens is not considered to be gramatically correct then there is something wrong !! Dickens is my hero !
That's not to say that grammar isn't important---but don't let it stand in the way of the writing. Get it down on paper first ... there's always time to clean it up afterward.

I think the checker flagged a lot of Dickens' stuff because grammar checkers are based on CURRENT usage, and slanted toward business and academic writing. It's not equipped to deal effectively with creative writing (or Victorian patterns of speech and text).

Busy day so far ... bookkeeping, laundry, haircut ... 3 or 4 hours editing and mixing audio for a podcast segment (and still not finished! it's like doing a jigsaw puzzle of a painting you're still working on!) ... still have to fold laundry and put the fresh sheets on the bed. Then I'll be ready for ... I was going to say tea, but it's about dinnertime. And some relaxation. Whew.

How's your weekend shaping up?

Eight hour work days over until Monday but I will still probably be working over the weekend as I usually do. I generally do not work more than three or four hours and then I usually go and relax.

I have just four more lessons left in my creative writing class and the final exam is March 29. I am a bit disappointed in myself as far as the quizzes. There have been eight. I have gotten four 100% grade and four 80% grades. I don't know what this averages out to.

I just was hoping I would do better overall and not just with the grades but with the assignments. As each new assignment comes every week I am discovering more and more I am NOT a writer. Oh well. Guess it may be time to find a new dream.

HomemakinGirl - I hope you find some help from your doctor appointment with your headaches xo

CAH - So glad your grandson is doing okay now - How terrifying that must have been xo

Brad - Glad you are feeling better and so relieved you caught this in time. xo

Have a good Christmassy night dear Christmas Family xo
