Sucky Friday…whine fest. Bring cheese


I’m having a sucky Friday 🙁 Lost 2 chapters on Arak’s Love yesterday. Didn’t use my flash drive or external drive when I decided to pop over my mom’s and do some work. THEN icing on the cake, I tossed out the paper notes I had and deleted the notes from my phone once I finished transcribing them into the doc. Not sure what happened but apparently it didn’t save which I didn’t discover until now. Major bummed out because it was a crucial important 2 chapters not to mention almost 7k of words. Gone!! I could cry but now I have to try and fix. Obviously I know what happened in the scenes but I’m not sure I’ll have the dialogue the same or all the body language and gestures. (((WHINE)))

Hope going to see Pitch Perfect 2 with one of the kids today makes me feel better because right now I want to poke a fork in my eye.

    Thanks Beth and Susan. Just grabbed Starbucks. My taboo 2nd cup this week. BUT good news someone helped me sync my iPhone to recover deleted notes from my phone. It’s not the missing chapters but its almost 3k in notes which will go a loooonng way in helping the rewrite. Thank goodness for the freaking Internet and the kindness of strangers 🙂

    Oh no!!!! I hate when I lose something I’ve worked hard on writing. It happened a few times during my reporter days. But don’t despair! Usually the rewrite ends up much better than the original. You can dot it!

    You’re the 2nd person to tell me that Toni. AND Pitch Perfect was a bunch of laughs. Had a great time
