The other day, I said to myself, “Self, you need to back up this novel. This copy on your laptop is the only one you have.” Neglecting my own advice, I proceeded to drop said laptop on the following day. After much ado with Best Buy and other third parties, I have come to the conclusion that the data is lost.
Strangely, this brought me some sense of relief, which led me to believe that I was writing the wrong story. I had invested so much time into it though, that I had been reluctant to extract myself and start anew.
So I have done just that: Began anew. Fear not, brave reader, this blog will continue. Why this very evening, I have created bold new vistas, startling fresh characters and plot twists to set your blood aboil. So stay tuned to this channel, bat fans, for the same gripping commentary and aspersions that you have come to expect.
