Migration — Mail Merge Hell

Friday, October 24, 2008

I’m starting publicity for At Home Inside: A Daughter’s Tribute to Ann Petry. (Yeah, I know I keep pushing it.) Decided that I’d try to create labels for the announcement cards. I opened Microsoft’s instructions for mail merge – OMG! Didn’t even get through step one, and it lost me! Then I read down and saw that if one wanted more than one page of labels, it could be a little “gnarly.” And Microsoft has the nerve to ask if the instructions are helpful?! Well, Bill Gates may have killed Clippie, but he lives on in “helpful,” Hellpful, hell…pful! Today’s post is also limited as I’m running around with copies of The Narrows, which goes on sale next week, to various and sundry friends and relatives.
