The world didn’t end last night…

Posted on: December 12, 2012


 

The world didn’t end last night. I’m not sure how it found the courage to continue on.

As suggested by Author/blogger Michelle Proulx, and on the off chance she might have, I re-confirmed with my ‘beta-reader’, no. *sigh* She did NOT have a saved copy laying about anywhere. “If I kept every copy of everything I deal with…”

But what if… Not her problem…

I agree. She isn’t my secretary. That’s me. And I think I’m about to be fired… (Probably skewered, basted with oil and BBQ’d on high!)

However, mercy of all mercies: My facts and figures file, at least a neatened copy, has appeared. I can begin the process of rebuilding my manuscript. I dread figuring out the bibliography again. WHICH snippet/webpage/article did I find THAT fact in? Arrgghh!

I am slowly going crazy…crazy am I slowly going…

I am grateful it’s NOT a scientific journal. It is simply a fabrication of imagination boldly sallying forth.

I begin to doubt the wisdom in laying it aside for a few months while I worked on other projects and completed NaNoWriMo, but that’s how I normally work! I exhaust my ideas on one file and then move on, coming back to the first when new inspiration strikes. Now I just have to question all those little electronic blips and bleeps – this wouldn’t have happened if I’d used a pencil! I should have just sent it in rather than holding it back for a few months, so I could read it one last time and be confident.

Still PRAISE GOD! I have found the parts list… now to order me up a fancy new machine… And pray for another miracle from data recovery… (Problem is: I don’t know WHAT they can recover? My machine didn’t crash (that I’m aware of…) and I sure as heck did NOT press delete… Are you sure? YES.) Still I remain hopeful.

Onwards I shall march… depression shall be vanquished; self loathing shall increase, but I’ll get over that soon enough.

Bless ya,

*hugs*
