Ack!!

I am officially stuck in no computer land. Little man destroyed my laptop charger and the battery died. Hubby's boss man asked me to help fix his email program and I thought I'd give it a try. I almost killed HIS poor computer. So we were almost stuck without any computers or internet access. I tried to download a new anti-virus program but the operating system was too old. I updated his version of XP and installed the new software and the computer crashed. And yeah...I panicked! But fortunately I was able restore his system...about the time he decided to buy a new computer. Hopefully I won't screw it up tomorrow when I install the software. *sigh* I also went online and bought a new charger for my laptop. Hopefully I'll be back online by Wednesday or Thursday. Try not to miss me too much. Haha. :)

So no new progress on the chapter. Nothing to report. I'm not one to write down thoughts and it almost seems as if I've shut my writer's brain off. I might need a bit of a kick start to get it going again. I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Computer problems are the worst! But hopefully you can enjoy a few days off!

You're brave. I don't mess with anybody else's computer.

Hope your charger comes quickly.

Jody:) No rest for the weary. I've got crits to catch up on and I'm doing a beta read for one of my RWA writing group sisters who is about to sell to a YA pub.

Chicki:) I warned him that it may mess up because there may not be enough memory. I just didn't think it would crash. I had to do a system restore just to get the computer to boot up. He was wanting a new computer and was glad I gave him the excuse.

Hang in there. Computer problems can be SCARY! :)

What you need to do is get you a notepad and pen and write when you can. Srsly. When you type it all in, you can edit as you go. It works. You need to be writing. Listen to me crackin' the whip over here.
