I was a good girl last week, I backed up my computer.
Murphy’s Law runs strong in me. If it can happen, it will.
So what do you think happened when touching the only files of the book I’m working on?
You guessed it. I accidentally wrote over it!
After much swearing, surfing the net to find answers, I finally accepted the inevitable.
I wasn’t going to get my files back. I had to go to my back-up, back-up files and recover the book.
I lost pages…about 5000 words. Three days worth of work.
I was devistated. I spent all day Saturday re-writing missing pages. I added some good material, but I fear one scene is missing something. Sigh. I’ll have to re-write it for the third time to see if I can get it ‘just right’.
It doesn’t look like I’m going to have my book completed this weekend. I’m about 25,000 words (plus) short. *wince*
Yeah, I had a great week last week. Kicked off the internet, lost 20 pages of my manuscript, spent hours of wasted time on the internet trying to find worthless answers. Yay, me.
Hey, it can only get better, right? On the bright side, at least I didn’t lose the whole book.
