I don't know how to cut and paste my story on to my you tube web page


highlight the parts you wish to copy by selecting with left mouse button. Now hold the CTRL key + C key (thats the kb shortcut for copy)
Next, go to your webpage and use CTRL+P (kb shortcut for paste)
Sometimes the mouse function for cut and paste may not work with all sites..

Try this first and let me know..
