I will deal with you another day, my not so pretty.

<rant>

Can I just say that I hate this template?

I'm reasonably happy with the home page. It looks OK. It's functional. But my Published Works page is horrible.

Adding an entry for the Storybook Home, Enchanted Gardens article in the latest issue of Merrimack Valley Magazine should have been a simple task, right? Just enter a couple of hard returns, type some text, and boom, finished.

But no. Not simple.

It's the bane of a writers' existence: having to work around the limits and challenges of style sheets. Most of us don't want to become HTML wizards in order to control our on-screen destinies. I know I don't.

And I really don't want to have to experiment with a bunch of other templates just to find equally annoying issues with them.

So for now I'm just going to co-exist with ugly, pull a Scarlett O'Hara, and deal with it tomorrow. Or the tomorrow after that.
