I would have written more words tonight but NOOOOOOOOOOOOO WINDOWS UPDATE DECIDED I SHOULD NOT DO ANYTHING FOR AN HOUR AND A HALF.
That’s how long it took for this blasted computer to update and get to the login screen. And of course, it shut down right in the middle of a scene. So I bitched on Facebook from my phone, cried a little, and put on an episode of Peaky Blinders.
And now we’re back! Too late to do anything! (This is because I spent most of the day at the salon and now my hair looks insanely good. So I got that going for me.)
Fortunately for me, Atomic Scribbler saves constantly, so I didn’t lose anything. It also creates a backup anywhere you choose. I picked my flash drive, but it also lets me export my book as a Word document, which I then upload periodically (should be every day, tbh) to Google Drive. I really, REALLY need a new computer.
We’re under a tornado watch until 5:00 a.m. (yes, in November. Welcome to the Ozarks.) And I have to get up early in the morning for my Buddhist group. I’ll update my word counter on the home page tomorrow.
Lovely readers, I appreciate you being with me for this month of NaNoWriMo.
Congratulations! I’ve been thinking my computer is probably due to crash since it’s several years old.
No tornado watches for me in Los Angeles, but the recent Alaska earthquakes are making me think about tremors here. Hope we don’t get any.
Tossing It Out
I hope you don’t either. Even though California is unstable and on fire most of the time, I’d move back in a heartbeat if I could.
Oh, and by the way, we’re all dead today because we did get warnings but OF COURSE they didn’t happen until one a.m. -_-
