Simply maimed. Or my laptop is, at least. My shiny, 17″ HP g60-230US has… died on me. After seven months of ownership. My hard drive is completely fried, and I am… sad.
Thankfully almost all of my writing is safe. The laptop was backed up until the beginning of July, and I have a habit (thankfully!) of emailing myself or close friends bits of my manuscript, or the whole thing, as I go along.
And HP is being nice and sending me a new hard drive, since this one is still considerably under warranty, but still I am, understandably frustrated. My brand new Samsung camera started malfunctioning a few weeks ago, and now my laptop is dead!
In short, technology hates me and/or is doing its best to try my patience. Hello, library computer. I’m glad you’re here, at least!
So yes, until I get my new hard drive and get everything fixed up nicely, updates here will be rare. I’ll be updating The Hollow Tree, though, so look there—coming this week, Cyn Balog’s Fairy Tale and a Myths & Legends 101 on Banshees!
