Earlier in the week, I laughed at a terrible proofreading mistake I’d made when I forgot to remove a sentence I’d reworked. It resulted in two sentences using variations of the word “Devastated”.
Tonight, I feel the word acutely. I just accidentally deleted my almost completed Chapter 27 in Winter’s Icy Caress. I’m using a new program and despite the backups the program makes and its constant self-save feature. I’ve lost the file forever.
I’m going to bang my head against a typewriter (I don’t want to destroy my laptop) and cry. I will also curse, but I refuse to write the words I will think and more than likely say.
Wish me luck!
