Computer Scare

I had a bit of a scare today when my laptop slowed down considerably and had trouble opening any programs. Yikes! I ran my antivirus program, which showed nothing wrong, so I ran a clean-up program and took out a disk I burned a while ago. Once I removed the disk, everything appeared to go back to normal.

I'm very relieved, although I've also burned several new disks so I won't lose my writing or my e-books. I've already been in the habit of e-mailing my writing to a specific e-mail when I finish for the day, so I always have the latest draft, but I don't want to lose character sketches, etc. All I can say is back up your stuff if you don't do it already. You definitely don't want to experience the moment of panic I felt this afternoon.

I'm working on a new story, and I'm enjoying the feeling of getting back into writing. I'm still figuring out the hero's conflict, but I'm pleased with the beginning of the story.

In reading news, I've discovered e-book author Shelby Reed, and she's exceptionally talented. I'm so impressed by the characters she creates--they live in your mind long after you finish reading. If you haven't tried any of her books, I encourage you to do so. I've read Midnight Rose and A Fine Work of Art, and I look forward to reading the rest of her books.
