Once again, I apologize for not getting a post up on Monday. I have no laptop currently because it is in the shop, so it is more difficult to get a post up. I’m not making any promises for next week.
Well, I was right about being able to start typing out my third draft by this week, but I was wrong about how far along I would be. Very wrong. I’m only a few pages in, which is unfortunate. I was hoping to be much farther along than about five or six pages. I was able to do one full page on Monday, but that’s when the incident happened.
My dog broke my laptop.
Yeah, you read that correctly. I was sitting down on the couch editing and then my dog, who was right beside me looking out the window, decided to start barking and ran into my laptop. So, the screen broke and I have to get a screen replacement. No laptop for a while. Fun, fun.
I was hoping to be able to finish the third draft by the end of 2014, but that’s not gong to happen now. I guess I just have to get used to the fact that things like this will happen. Writers always have something happen to them, and I guess a destroyed laptop is one thing that has happened to me.
I don’t like it, but I guess I’ll just have to deal with it. I may not have a laptop, but I still have my dreams. I hope to be able to continue as soon as I get my laptop back, but we will see.
The man at Best Buy said that I would have to wait two weeks at the most, but I’m hoping it won’t be that long. Bear with me as I try to get my laptop back and try to pay for a replaced screen.
Thank you for your continued support, everyone.
