Well, it happens to all of us, sooner or later. My laptop hard drive has crashed taking all my data, including my address book with it. I spent 12 hours trying various ways to boot the hard drive. No luck, just access denied.
Besieged was backed up. But I have only half of the Gothic novel. I'm just too bummed out to even try to resurrect "Moon" for now.
So, I think, this will be the last bit of writing I do for a few days.
My husband will take the laptop to a shop, see if they can get my data back.
I don't have a whole lot of hope.
