The bitter part - all of the manuscripts I was working on (Charlie MacCready The Dark Angel, Secrets and Lies, and two others) are gone. I thought I had them backed up but when I checked I realized that instead of copying the files from my thumb drive to my computer, I moved them. ARRRRR! Thank heaven I still had copies of my published manuscripts on thumb drives. . . or I did until I cleaned my desk and discovered three missing from the box. Just shoot me now.
The moral of the story: BACK UP! BACK UP! BACK UP!
Now I am and I'm getting back to writing. Who knows, it may be a blessing in disguise. The new versions are sounding better.
