summary of work week, and busy days
Hello all, This has been a busy week, with only two evenings free the whole week. I'm still working on my 75 freelance articles, and I have gone out of town to grandson's soccer game, visited preschool, and brought another grandson home with me.
I am enjoying my time spent here at Author's Den. I don't know why I didn't use it more earlier in my writing career. It's awesome! I'm still trying to figure out how to use all the features but hey, I'm getting better!
My problem is that many of my works were on a flash drive that suddenly went dead on me. Did you know that you have to have your computer turned off when you withdraw your flash card? Me neither, but apparently that is what blew mine. I had lots of work on it, short stories, poetry, essays, columns that had been printed in my local newspaper. It makes me sick. Every now and then I think of something I want to look at or revise and remember it was on that flash drive.
So, be careful, you don't want to lose your valuable information. I know it hurt me. I even had the first part of my second book saved on it. Boo-hoo.
Ok folks, got to go, in pool tournament this weekend and next, so have things to do before I go.
Write on, it's never too late to reach for your dream.
