We had our monthly Smoky Mountain Romance Writers meeting today. We met at the home of Mallory Kane. It was a good meeting with lots of members present. The program was on using a Virtual Assistant and was very interesting. Normally we break for lunch, but today everyone went their own way.
Afterward I came home and wrote making progress on a new direction that my story was going in. Then tragedy hit. For some reason my word program froze up. My auto save function didn’t work. I lost over 400 words. 400 words! This isn’t the first time this has happened. But I’m soooo over it happening. I have a new computer that is less than 2 years old but I’ve been having trouble with it since I purchased Word 2010 and installed the program. I’m not sure if it is the MS word program or if it is the type of computer I’m using. I lost more than 400 words when I was working on Because of Rebecca, the same thing happened except instead of the document freezing on the screen, the program shut down with a stroke of a key. The auto save function failed again that time too and I was livid. In both cases I rewrote the scenes I lost, but I feel they lacked something the second time around.
One thought on “Play Date Saturday”
So sorry to hear of your computer gremlin. It’s awful when that happens after such hard work!
