So frustrated! I am a little fanatical about saving my work in multiple locations, so I don't lose anything. While I've been recuperating from my eye issue, I've been sporadic about my computer usage. I spent a significant amount of time last week working on a character profile, and then I apparently saved something else over it? I don't know . . . still getting used to the way Windows 10 does things when I save a document, but I went to open the profile and . . . it was a different document altogether. All of that work is gone. I was waiting to save it in my Port until I'd had a chance to fill in some of the gaps (eye strain took me away from the computer before I could do that) so it's not there either.
Also I've gotten myself so disoriented by not working directly on the computer, and saving my Prep to my Port as soon as I've written it! I have one assignment that had the wrong date on it. I can't find another assignment altogether and now I can't remember whether I actually wrote it or not. It may be in my notebook somewhere but I didn't type it up. And the assignment with the wrong date has the date of the one I can't find. Gah! Working in a notebook is not for me.
Back in October of 2015, I started working on a writing project. I got about 2/3 of the way through the first draft during NaNoWriMo in November 2015, and stalled. I continued working on it for NaNoWriMo 2016, but again I stalled. I was determined to get the first draft finished before October, so I could begin Prepping for this year's project.
I did it! Today I finished the first draft of Like It or Not, my YA contemporary retelling of Shakespeare's As You Like It!
