Thanks to Tess over at Tess Hilmo I've won $10 Amazon gift certificate! What a great way to start a Monday.
It definitely made the near combustion of me easier to handle. Decided to copy files from scrappy lappy to usb stick. Manually copying and pasting takes a while. 1 hour 30 mins later I'd succeeded in copying:
Imperial Intrigue (entire first draft, plus first 8 chapters of new edit)
A Spy's Legacy
It helped that the latter two were already in Open Office. Just as I was copying over Gem Manipulator....my scrappy lappy died. Much mild cursing from me (very mild - hopefully I won't offend people: damn, damn it, blast). Info is safe. But I was really close to getting all my wips onto the usb!
I daren't restart scrappy lappy tonight. It'll probably protest at me. So, I'm blogging (that thing which I do when I don't have virus gremlins) and have got to sort out the format for those files. They may have copied and pasted over, but some of the formatting has ended up a little odd. I'm only going to work on Termion - the original version of II won't be needed for a while so no point wasting precious time on that. I need to get cracking with Termion as of yesterday. Yup, feeling better now :) Onwards with the editing! Muse is rearing to go on edits of Inescapable Ties (next wip) which is a sure sign she's restless to finish Termion.
