SOME THINGS JUST DON’T WORK RIGHT.

No matter how hard you try some things just don’t work right. DEATH BY BASEBALL is a prime example of that. As I was finishing this book, many word changes needed to be made so this dummy used FIND AND REPLACE. Caution – DON’T EVER DO THAT. I replaced UMP with ARBITRATOR. Do you know what an scrarbitratortious is? That’s what you get when you replace ump with arbitrator in the word scrumptious. How about parbitratoring. Try pumping. I’m sure you get the drift.

Then there is a quirk in WORD that doesn’t save a file in all one file. When you look at the listing for your saved file you will find not only the main file DEATH BY BASEBALL.docx or doc, and WRL under ~s files. Now any reasonable person would assume those were temporary files that didn’t apply much to the work at hand in the main file. BUT, never delete those. If you do the worms fight their way to the top and your docx file will no longer be what you imagined it would be.

Not being a professional programmer or a WORD guru, I am not sure how those files relate to the docx or doc file, BUT they will destroy all your refining of the main file if you delete them.

Now is the time for all good men to come to the aid of their country. VOTE.

Now go write or something productive.
