Dorothy Farrell: How to close a big gap at the end of a poem - can anyone help?
January 26, 2020 at 10:14AM
    phill doran: place your cursor at the end of the text then keep your finger on the delete button while it 'eats' the empty space...


    write more


    January 26, 2020 at 10:52AM
    DR DIP: I think you mean where you have physically hit the enter button too many times

    if you place the cursor on thespace in front of the first letter of the line you want to bring closer then hit "shift
    backspace" that will bring it back up closer to your desired text previous.
    January 27, 2020 at 7:44AM
    Mary Kay Bonfante : Perhaps these other two replies have resolved your problem. If not, you can send me a message with part of the poem you're concerned about (or tell me which one it is, if you already posted it). I would be happy to suggest possible ideas.

Dorothy Farrell: Hi Folks, thought I should mention that I have changed my name from Fennell to Farrell. Possibly you wont notice they are so similar. Fennell was my maiden name (name before marriage) - Farrell is my present name (since marriage - a lifetime ago - LOL) - possibly no-one will notice. If they do they will probably think it is just a typo LOL. Cheers everyone Dorothy FARRELL from now on - LOL!!
December 2, 2018 at 7:45AM
    Mrs. KT: I certainly noticed!
    I went to search for you this morning to review your moving poem, and I couldn't find you! I had waited until today so I could give you the six stars your poetic offering deserves. Then I went back to my messages, and there you were, but as Farrell! Whew!
    Thank goodness! :)
