Computer In ICU

Well, I went to work on my revisions last night and the computer was acting kinda funny. So I shut it down. And now I can't get back in. It won't accept my password. Reverts back to my old password and then won't accept that either. The box for entering the information shakes. And of course now I can't check e-mails or get to ANY of my documents. And of course I'm not one of those who learned her lesson about backing up stuff the LAST time this happened! I'm afraid to do anything in case I ruin whatever chance I have to retrieve my documents.

But a couple days before I did e-mail to myself my query and synopsis for Danger. I also e-mailed the last revied version of Danger right after I sent my Golden Heart entry. So all is not lost....

I'll keep you updated...

YIKES. Crossing everything for you.

OH, I just had heart failure reading your post. What a nightmare. I keep all my work on a flash drive, and back that up to an external hard drive (not often enuf, I'm thinking). Yikes. I'll keep my fingers crossed that you get everything straightened out and it's okay.

I know better, but I haven't backed everything up. Luckily, if my friend can't help me (or the expensive computer geeks), the bulk of what I'll lose won't be catastrophic. It would be unfortunate, but not the end of the world.

Danger is backed up and Broken Promises is all hand-written.

I am so sorry. Nothing is worse than the pit in the center of your stomach from computer problems:(
