What A Writer Shouldn't Do.....
Learn from me......

I want to cry. Curl up into a little ball and just cry.

I was working on my latest at work yesterday. This morning I wanted to work on it more and I went to open it and guess what.... it wouldn't open. I got some message about checking for permissions etc. I have this saved to a memory stick so I can bring it to work with me or use it on my laptop or desktop.

And for the GOOD news??? I DON'T HAVE A BACKUP!!!!!!!!!!

I might have pieces here and there, like the first sex scene, but nothing that will save me huge amounts of work.

Why oh why oh why don't I learn to make backups?!?!!?!? I was well over 18k into the story and rewriting it is going to be a huge task. Well, not huge, but its going to be a PITA and I don't know it I can get the same things from it.

Jim is trying to fix it or restore it. I'm also going to see if it'll open for me at work where I was last working on it. And then I'm going to back it up EVERYWHERE!!!!!!!!!

    I have a special email account set up that I email all my stuff to every week. Just in case. Plus we back up on a different computer here.

    My computer system has crashed TWICE and I've lost everything except what I might have had out with a crit partner, printed or in a class at WVU.

    Yeah... it took me twice to learn my lesson.

The Legacy:


THAT KIND OF MAGIC--AVAILABLE NOVEMBER 17,2010 What's a witch to do when she refuses to use magic to find love? Beautiful Wiccan Charlotte Noone has a shop for magical supplies and a goddess who's pushing her to find the man of her dreams. When Patrick Riordan, a straight-laced non-believer enters her life, Charlotte falls madly in lust with him. Despite their very different lives, neither can stop the erotic journey they’ve embarked on, but will it be enough to break through their barriers so they can accept that love itself is magical?. .
