We'll blog no lines before it's time

Sorry I haven't been posting lately. I've just had some stuff going on that I haven't quite got settled enough in my own head to post about just yet, and I've been a little busy too. So I hope to be back soon, but I'm just not quite there yet.

Sorry folks.

"...before it's" time...? Is it?

"...before its" time.

I stand by my headline. I will blog no lines before it is time.

But I could use help with affect and effect. I still struggle with those. I have not found a good "trick" to make the distinction stick in my head.

That and which also used to be a problem, but I think I have that one figured out now. At least, that is my belief, which you may or may not agree.

A-ffect is generally a verb. I want to affect your behavior.

E-ffect is generally a noun. The effect I want will be determined by how successful my attempt to affect the situation becomes.

That with which we find fault...:-)

E-ffect can sometimes be used as a verb. I will effect the effect I wish with my attempts to affect the situation. Generally, though, e-ffect is a noun. According to my handy-dandy dictionary, affect the noun is limited to an emotional denotation. (Who knew?)
