Woe is me. My hard drive melted into nothing last week, taking with it months of emails, photos, three interviews, and the novel I had been doing so well producing for Nanowrimo.

I could still pick up where I left off, continue writing until the end (about 3000 words each day until the end of the month, as I’ve had a week of trying to get a computer and pick up the pieces of life and work which left little time for writing), then on December 1 start once more from the beginning and recreate what was lost.

A daunting task, as well as an exercise in letting go and moving on. And backing up your work, every day.

Stay tuned for some new book reviews this week.
