The missing button ALt Gr a very very handy key when reviewing poetry. If, through regional settings, you set your pc to use an extended keyboard, you can then type é and hence cliché. The Gr in Alt Gr stands for Gallic Riting.

Touché you may say, and put that skill on your résumé, then go wild and flambé your toupée.

Ooo, so my alt squiggly line with a minus sign is option. :-\

—  Yep

Thanks Sio, Mark. :-*

The Option key is also marked alt, Ma. So, for an em dash — it's Shift plus Alt plus the hyphen key, and for an en dash – it's Alt plus the hyphen key.

The size/breadth of the character in old typesetting m is slightly larger than n. ;)

Thanks shvon. Another added to the vocab warehouse.


While I've got you here, what do you think of this for a title I'm working on? Which to you seems a 'hook?'

The Little Sisters of the Poor, A Memoir

The Little Sisters of the Poor

The Little Sisters

The above being a Christian Institution for the elderly and infirm and the terminally ill. This is what I'm writing about, at the minute. I'm having so much fun with it. It's me and mine and others. I'm gonna post something of it soon, but not yet. Not till I'm sure. B

None of them, as they are all basically the title of the institution.

Maybe something like:

Living/Surviving With the Little Sisters

Nah sorry, it's not that kind of a story. Never mind, I'll just pick the best one I feel is right and run with it. Cheers.

Just give it a working title, such as 'little sisters' for now.  Something better or more resonant will probably emerge during the writing, a line or phrase that sums up the overall theme.
My website is currently having a holiday, but will return like the $6,000,000 man.  Bigger, stronger, etc.

In the meantime, why not take pity on a starving author and visit my book sales page at http://stores.lulu.com/gyppo1

Cheers gyp. I'm actually leaning towards The Little Sisters cos it has a pull to it, to me. I just sought a confirmation from someone removed from it and you came through, so thanks. B
