I screwed up. I've taken too long, and I still don't know if my article is good enough.
Here's the situation. The article is finished, though it is in dire need of peer review. I wanted to send the article to the few members I know, but there isn't an attach function anywhere. I wrote the article first in LotusPro, which nobody has, but I find it more user friendly than Microsoft Word. I had copied and pasted the document to Microsoft Word, but because that program is so infuriatingly screwy, my indentations and paces have been messed up. Even if I could remedy it, I can't find a way to attach that file in the PMs to the people who I want to check it out. Regrettably, I did copy and past the article onto a PM email to I Live... Again, and because it's unreadable and imperfect in that form, I haven't got a response from him. I want Tchernobog and Elric to check it out, but since I can't do an attach function in PM, and also because I included some quotes from I Live... Again from his PM, I'm stuck. I need to know if what I used from I Live... Again meets his approval before I show it to others to peer review, and I need to be able to send the article to my peer reviewers in a format which they can read. I also have long quotes, which may be very problematic for my readers.
What should I do now?
P.S. By the way, I got a B+ in my non-fiction writing class. Portfolio assemblage was the problem. Fellow classmates were compelled by my Transfusion article, even though none of them were computer game fans. At least I know that I'm on the right track, even though it doesn't have smooth reading quality of The Masters of Doom or that DNF article WIRED had awhile ago.
