Clarion, Day 29

Happy 4th!

Andy Duncan left today, and Kelly Link and Gavin Grant arrived, but I haven't done more than say hello to them yet. They caught me shirtless in my room, eek. 4th of July barbecue at Lister's. Was good. We taught Grace, who is from Australia, how to make smores. She wasn't impressed. I think Njihia was slightly more impressed, but still not especially.

Lots of butt-in-chair time today. Finished my current story, tentatively titled 'Moving the Sun'. Total 7200 words, woof. Longest story I've written at Clarion so far. Wordcount in the past 24 hours: 1900 words. Ouch. Last half is still fairly first-drafty, but I really want to get it in tomorrow for crits Tuesday. Plan is to sleep on it tonight, review it in the morning before crit circle, make last minute revisions, and print it out.

Now I go to do my crits for tomorrow.

Temp: 80.4. Humidity: 63%. Fan: on. Shirt: off. Stuff going on outside: intermittent rain.

congratulations --

I am all drooly and jealous again ::sigh::
I have a question about how you did your regular journal's layout.

I know you have a paid account so it may not be possible, but I was wondering if you knew/knew where to find the code to get the image into the navigation banner of the generator style, without having the thick background border around it. (as i have it now in my journal)
any help you could give me RE this would be greatly appreciated!
I did it through editing my S1 style sheet, which is possible only if you have a paid account. So -- this may or may not help you. It may be possible to do the same thing through overrides, but I know next to nothing about overrides.

In addition, I think I did it more than two years ago, and have forgotten how I did it. ^^;; I don't know much html, and even less CSS, and I did it by tweaking the code almost randomly.

But if it will help, this is the style code from the relevant section, for what it's worth.

Good luck!
