Oops!

2013-02-16 13.53.03I thought the day was going bad yesterday when I found out that two clients were continuing to be late in payment of their invoices.  But things really hit the fan when, as I was editing TIME AWRY, my sequel to THE WISDOM OF SOLOMON, I goofed, big-time! 

I hit a wrong key and over-wrote the entire 75 pages with a blank page!  It would have been simple to retrieve it if I had just deleted it; but no, I had to over-write it!  James Pickering spent about 2 hours this morning trying to recreate it, but no luck.  The only saving grace was that, about 2 months ago, I had emailed  James the 62 pages of what I had completed as of that date.  So the thirteen pages I lost had taken me those 2 months to write. 

I hope that my brain can reconstruct those 12 pages!!  The word file is now entitled TIME AWRY-OOPS!  If you don’t get anything out of this post, but what I’m about to say, then this all might have been worth it (not!)----SAVE, THEN BACK IT UP!!!!!!
