    AHhhh i fixed that by setting a c = getchar() before the while loop. Now, How would i fix the fact that once i do ./ex8-6 that i hit enter, then it is a blank line, then i hit enter then it prompts me for my Enter message: ??

    scanf() and getchar() both take input from standard input (stdin) in this case your keyboard.

    That is a logic issue and how you've set up your code. Think on what you want to happen and work it out in pseudo code, post your code afterwards and we'll take a look at it.
