This is a great article by Linda Joy Myers:
Who hasn’t been in this state of mind? My latest excuse is that my laptop was broken. Yes, people, it does happen. My computer has had viruses before which were curable, but never have I had a broken hard drive and motherboard. Just like that.
Back in the day I wrote pen to paper and I still use my paper journal every now and again. As it was this last time I contented myself using my Kindle Fire’s journal app which was fine for short notes. The Kindle is not the tool for stream of consciousness writing, that’s for sure!
Now that I am back on track, it’s time to get busy again, although I am still waiting to get the back up disc from our storage unit. The most recent back up anyway. So yes, I have lost some of my work, but I don’t think it will be too bad. Fortunately I had printed out some hard copy.
Thank you Linda Joy Myers, for your expertise, and for your encouragement!
