I tried to add a links bar to my template last night. Since then I've been unable to make this blog "republish." If you see this post, you'll know that I finally got it to work. Still: aargh!
In the pipeline: I've started a prequel short story about Epli, a legendary hero of Mâvarin whose sword has the voice of his people. Stay tuned!
P.S. Shelly informs me that it was Blogger as a whole, not just me. That's a comfort. I was worried I'd ruined the template just trying to add those few things.
