As is my custom, this Blog of Writing has a preview of two images for an upcoming article.

Decoded Science published "Is the Elevator Puzzle a Math Paradox or a Paranoid Delusion?" on Aug. 30th.

The Elevator Puzzle is a very real effect, but can lead to feelings of paranoia: "Why is the elevator going the wrong way whenever I want it"?

"Other Elevator Puzzles with 10 Floors" by Mike DeHaan
This is, surprisingly, the larger image.As always, I also promote my article in my current DeHaan Services blog, "Decoded Science Answers the Elevator Puzzle" and on the "DeHaan Writing" page of the DeHaan Directory.

Writing Tips

One of the ongoing challenges, for me at least, in the Math section of Decoded Science is to stick to a reasonable length for the article.

I do blame Microsoft Word (and any other word-counting word processor) for breaking text by the obvious characters such as ' ' [blank], ',' [comma], and ';' [semi-colon]. Those are perfectly reasonable choices, but math articles have lots of 1-letter symbols.

Regardless, the article is a bit long.

Today's writing tip is to break up long text with headings and images. This reassures your readers that you are, indeed, making progress.

    Flexible Sidebar

    Weebly's "Blog Author" widget from the Blog Sidebar's Elements menu provides a lot of flexibility. You can change both the title and the text.

    It has all the capabilities for text editing that you find in most Weebly text widgets.

    At this point, I don't see a way to code any HTML in this widget.

    The "Picture" does what you expect: it displays an image of your choice. I just added my home-made picture of "Copyright DeHaan Services 2013" as the top element in this sidebar on Jan. 22, 2013.

    The "Search Box" is a "Pro" feature; if you're paying for Weebly hosting, it may be worthwhile.

    The other widgets are pre-programmed to do what they say.
