Both of my computers simultaneously crashed. It was probably a power surge but that still leaves me without the computer my writing is on and without internet. (I’m at a friend’s house using their computer.)
This sort of thing always seems to happen when I’m out. I came home from New Years this year to find my basement had flooded with about $25000 in damage. Although, my computers crashing in no way matches the flood, it still sucks that I come home from a belated birthday dinner and movie to find both computers shut down and a page full or errors. (Fast Five was awesome by the way. Just make sure you stay past the credits, there’s a surprise scene afterward!)
This is beyond bad timing since I’m at a crucial point in my writing. I may be able to reconnect the internet cable to the second computer (which will only turn on with the boot disk). It might be a few days before the other computer is up and running and before I can access my files.
I’m still hoping for a May release for my books. It might be early June, I’m not sure. I have some ideas for the launch I’m playing with . . . It’s going to be fun but may take some extra time. We’ll see. . . .
