Some say change is good, but in my opinion, if change makes life difficult, it’s not good. Such is the case with WordPress’s block editor. Since it has infiltrated our sites, those of us who must use screen reading technology due to blindness or visual impairment are struggling, but we’re not the only ones. Many of my sighted fellow bloggers are complaining about this supposedly wonderful, new way of creating and editing posts, but is WordPress listening? No, they are not, and do you want to know why? Because it’s all about the money, and that’s why I’m resisting this change.
The above is in response to Girlie on the Edge’s six-sentence prompt for this week. The word is “resistance,” and the idea is to write a work of poetry or prose that is no more and no less than six sentences, using the word at least once. If you’d like to participate in Girlie on the Edge’s blog hop, click here.
The good news is that thanks to Girlie on the Edge, I’ve found a way you can still use the classic editor. After creating and saving your post, go to All Posts from your dashboard. Once you’ve selected the post you want to edit, you should find, below that checkbox, the option to edit using the classic editor.
By the way, for those of you who use the National Library Services for the Blind and Print Disabled, The Red Dress is available for download from their site here.

New! The Red Dress
Copyright July 2019 by DLD Books
When Eve went to her high school senior prom, she wore a red dress that her mother had made for her. That night, after dancing with the boy of her dreams, she caught him in the act with her best friend. Months later, Eve, a freshman in college, is bullied into giving the dress to her roommate. After her mother finds out, their relationship is never the same again.
Twenty-five years later, Eve, a bestselling author, is happily married with three children. Although her mother suffers from dementia, she still remembers, and Eve still harbors the guilt for giving the dress away. When she receives a Facebook friend request from her old college roommate and an invitation to her twenty-five-year high school class reunion, then meets her former best friend by chance, she must confront the past in order to face the future.
