My Mac died. Need I say more? I’m hoping it can be resurrected. If not, it’s under warranty, and the tech guys promised me they’d get everything off my hard drive. Most of it’s backed up, but certain things like my address book, bookmarks, and everything I’ve added since Mount Hermon (the last time I did a back up) is out of my hands right now. Not to mention my calendar and sticky notes. I have no idea if I’m supposed to be somewhere or doing something.

So, since I don’t really want to recreate the last 4,000 words I wrote (even if they did totally suck) I’m wandering around the house feeling a little lost. In the nearly 20 years I’ve had Macs, I’ve never had this happen. I almost didn’t get the extended warranty. Oh, I’m so glad I did.

My daughter was quite unhappy I took my old PC laptop back. It doesn’t have wi-fi, so I’m tied to the office. And it’s slow, and it has a tiny hard drive that’s almost full.

Sigh. So I guess I’m on a writing break. I’ll be doing crits and maybe some Maass exercises to jump start me back into the story when I get my computer back.

Of course, there’s always painting.
