I know I should have done sooner. My contest was suppose to be titled Just the Facts. Looking for two stanzas one qustionku and one in the 7-1-4  format meaning first line has seven syllables, second line one, and the third line four. The stanzas can be in any order. Thank you.

    Robert - I am still a bit confused...what is the NAME of the 7-1-4 format and is it in the 'Forms' section on PS? (forgive my ignorance!) - Tim

    Tim, 7 syllables in the first line followed by 1 syllable in the second line ending with four lines in the last line. In honor of Joe Friday's badge number on Dragnet. This being my first contest and my computer having a mind of it's own I made a few mistakes. I promise my next contest will be much better. Don't forget the qustionku and it can be in any order. I hope that helps you out Tim.

    Robert, until your contest has a title, you will not be able to access it to lock it , judge it , or finalize it. You will need to contact TPS to ask them to temporarily title it ( usually they just call it XXX) because you will not be able to get into your own contest as it is ( yes, we've all done it too()
