Words Cannot Express

How much fun it is to be in a band like this.
And at my age.

And speaking of "words" and "expressing", I finally found the answer to something that has bugged me, as a writer, for some time:
"Your citation of the passage is to be in the text. Here is an example: “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life” (John 3:16, NASB).1

"Note a couple of things with the quote and citation above. (1) The final punctuation (the period) comes after the citation, which is in parenthesis ( ) not brackets [ ]. (2) Then, after the final punctuation, comes the footnote number. (3) Also, in-text citations require the full spelling of the Bible books; Thus, it is John 3:16, not Jn. 3:16."

It's funny how it's the little things that drive you the most crazy, "like a splinter in your mind, driving you mad." (Morpheus in The Matrix)

At least, now I know.
