Sending many thanks your way, Jan. Can this list remain at the top of the Forum/Thread? I have yet to figure out the difference. :roll: :?

I write even when I think I can't, because I must. :-)

I love to write. Nothing escapes the crush I have on the written word. I'm hooked on words!!

Lillian, it's been stickied, so it's not going anywhere.

The forums (plural) are the totality of this area.

A forum (singular) is any one of the locations you can click on from the previous page. "Jan's Writing Basics" is one forum; "The Water Cooler" is another (for example).

A topic is any entry in a particular forum. This topic is "Alphabetical List of all Writing Forums."

A thread is a topic plus all of its responses.

I hope that makes sense to you! Let me know if I can clarify any further.

Yes, it does. I've made it easy to remember. F(s), F, To, Th (Two F's, Two T's.) Just like the two A's for age and accommodations. :D

Thanks, (To you, too, Joanne).
