    Default Lesson 5 - Signature and Graphics Files

    I've asked superwiz Karenne to post the illustrations for this lesson. While we're waiting - could you do a quick poll for me? I will be watching this thru the entire month, so if you're coming in late, go right ahead and answer.

    Default Awesome! Thanks Karenne...

    These two files are SnagIt pics taken from MS Word. You could make the same thing in any word processing program. I keep mine open in the background while I'm chatting, then switch over by clicking the window icon in the task bar at the bottom of the screen.

    If you are a total noob like I was (many moons ago) and have no idea what I'm talking about here, just hang in. I'll go over specifics in another lesson, and then all this will make perfect sense.

    The graphics file is awesome - I have 3 pages of goodies I can copy and paste into myspace comments.

    I can hear the grumbling now... "but there's no way to paste anything in there!" Oh, but there is! Here is a short list of the most useful and timesaving hotkeys you will ever find on the computer. Print this list, cut it out, and paste it on your monitor's edge so you can see it. Pretty soon it will be second nature.

    These hot keys make it possible for you to rapidly copy, paste etc during a chat. For a PC, use control (ctrl) for a Mac, use Command (cmd). For ease of writing, I'm using ctrl here, but if you're a Mac person, substitute cmd.


    ctrl-Z Undo
    ctrl-X Cut
    ctrl-C Copy
    ctrl-V Paste
    ctrl-S Save
    ctrl-N New
    ctrl-I Italics
    ctrl-B Bold
    ctrl-U Underline
    ctrl-O Open
    ctrl-W Close

    Highlight the text you want to use, ctrl-C to copy, then go to the comments section or signature area for your message, and do ctrl-V. Ta da! Once you practice this, you'll be copying/pasting like a champ.

    I'm the Word queen, btw. If you want it to do something (or stop doing it) post your question here. I'll give it a shot.

    Kayelle,

    A question. How did you come up with your brand, 'Unstopable heros, Ucompromising love, Unforgetable passion'?

    Whenver I try to come up with something like that for myself, it either sounds dumb, very dominant, or a mile long, and I just give up. Thoughts, suggetions?

    I did answer you, Jude, but apparently the forum lizards ate it.

    I'll give it another shot, though. How did I come up with this? I played with ideas and kept trying different things until it looked right. I worked on three things that could tie together. Here's what I came up with:

    Erotic - Unique - Unforgettable
    Power - Passion - Possession
    Enigmatic - Compelling - Undeniable

    Nothing in stone there, but I liked the words. Liz Maverick's site was good inspiration. She uses: Kick-butt heroines, sexy heroes, sticky situations…

    I wrote down a page of them and whittled it down to these as possibilities:

    Unstoppable heros, Uncompromising love, Unforgettable passion
    Timeless romance, eternal passion, forever love
    Not the usual heros, not the usual setting, not the usual romance

    Across the galaxy, right next door, deep in your heart
    When it absolutely, positively has to be different.
    Think you know what'll happen? No way! It's by Kayelle.


    In the end, I chose the first and the last. So, simply put - a matter of brainstorming and then ditching what didn't sound right.

    Kayelle, beautiful. You've given me a starting place at least, thank you. Copied and pasted into my new folder for Marketing. *G*

    Sas, I don't go with something dominant because that's not all that I write. I think that's my big problem. It's all sensual, it's not all whips and chains, there's got to be a happy medium, yet erotic. I'll work on it.

    Hugs
