Writing section! 08.11.2007

I’ve spent the last couple hours adding in a writing section to the site. Words cannot describe the lack of effort it took to build out the fairly full featured section.

My chief goal was automation and organization: putting the disparate pieces of writing I have lying about here and there into a work->piece hierarchy. In brief:

Each piece of writing is a piece object on the backend. Each piece object belongs to a work object. Each work object holds multiple piece objects. The main writing page automatically lays out this relationship in terms of blocks of works.

In the future, it really is as simple as adding in a piece of prose, selecting a work group it belongs to, and saving. The templates and backend logic will handle the rest, including creating new work blocks, and detailed work and piece lists.
