When I try to use an unusual or made up word my Z10 gives me a corrected version that sits over the space bar and won't let me advance the message. Any ideas on how to put in the unusual word into the message easily?

hit back space until it changes back to what you want

Don't see how that helps--for instance, if I want to use the word "Starbucksing" the space bar changes to "Starbucks" as a suggestion. If I backspace on starbucksing and retype it the suggestions is still "starbucks"

Sorry fo rbeing unclear--I use Swipe a lot and it works just fine, just not for that uncoventional word that is right above the suggested one, hence my comment on finger position.

FYI--Just spoke with a friend who also has a Z10 and she has the same problem. The unusual word above the suggested one is not flickable. If you try to flick it it puts in the suggested word. It's a design flaw, possibly because the desired word and the suggested word are too physically close on the keyboard (we are both female and neither of us has large hands).

Myself, if I place my finger/thumb firmly onto the 'corrected' word shown in the space bar (when the desired word is showing above) and swipe it halfway up into the keyboard and it will insert the desired word into the text.
Do you have 'Use Learned Words' switched on? You can access this and a range of other settings via Settings / Language and Input / Automated Assistance.
Good luck, I believe it should work for you with some persistance. My point earlier about 'suspending disbelief' was a reference to how counterintuitive this action actually feels.
Edit: You can actually drag the suggested word quite slowly up into the centre of the keyboard and it will still work.
'Flicking' can cause the occasional undesired result - (in my experience).
