COMPUTER BACK-UP :(
"Evolution and all hopes for a better world rest in the fearlessness and open-hearted vision of people who embrace life.” ~ John Lennon
One month ago, I logged on to my computer. When ten minutes had passed and the log was not on, I realised something was wrong.
Four weeks, three technicians and one rebuild later, I am the proud owner of a mystery. Even the most tech-savvy computer geek couldn't find what had caused the fault nor could he prove that a virus ate my computer's brain. (Bless him, he did rescue my documents.)
BACK UP YOUR WORK!
When every thing seemed at it's worst, I refused to continue writing Mortimer: I abandoned him half way to the Mess Hall. I was too angry because I had allowed my back-up systems to slip.
The two weeks worth of writing that I hadn't backed up involved experimental work on tenses and all the directions on areas to revisit later. I also had the latest draft for my query letter and the notes for the synopsis in the same document.
I had no idea if I would see any of it again.
Unplugged, I spent the month working on some ideas in long hand.
Even Blogger has changed since I was allowed on a computer last. I like this new format.
HOW IS EVERYONE? I MISSED YOU ALL.
