Rich, yes, we gotta have a man cave! What do you strum on that guitar? I don't watch a lot of TV, unless a movie catches my interest, but I won't go out of my way.

Re: Second Tense

Hi Jan, I apologize for that. I meant to say second person. I am wondering if a person could use it in a devotional style writing would it sound awkward?

Also both links go to the entry from the writing challenge.

Second Tense (Writing in Second Person)

Dear Jan, Is it acceptable to write a piece in second tense for the writing competition? I have had difficulties with tenses in the past and wanted to know if you had a lesson on tenses or could possibly a link where I could brush up on my tenses?

Thanks,
Richard

Re: Tenses all over the place ---Help---

I am sorry my mind was not thinking right. Maybe after the challenge is over I can post my piece and you can offer me some red ink or even during the brick throwing? Whew, are you sure this post thread is okay?
