This site behaves really oddly when trying to write a post with various interesting elements of punctuation, using my tablet pad. I watch the gremlins grab the cursor each time quotes marks, or, parentheses are wanted. It is fascinating seeing the cursor jump from the point I have placed it at and somersault back to a point it was previously at. (Grrrr).
Could I place single quotes either end of a word once I’d passed it….no I could not. The cursor was determined to quickly sidle up to the spot where it had been before to create a doppleganger. There I was with two single quotes togther. Sure they looked like great buddies, even if they were not what I wanted. Under my breath I said ‘shove off’ except that is not exactly what I meant.
There are other cursor quicksteps, they don ‘t happen when I am writing in other programmes, just when trying to post on WordPress with the tablet pad. It is odd and really irritating. On balance though, going for a digital dance when it matters even if it is a nuisance , is probably better than the words freezing up. If, therefore, you notice a few punctuation marks out of place, a space or two where they are excess to requirements, you will know why. Metaphorically speaking, my script has been going off the rails!
