F**K, F**K, F**KING BOLLOCKS… F**K!

Well, the worst thing that you can imagine happening to an author, has gone and happened…

My laptop decided to develop behavioural issues, gradually getting worse over a period of days. In the end, I lost my temper (which is so unlike me! 😉 ) and proceeded to punch it until it took on the appearance of a strange platter dish that you would only expect to find at a nerdy computer geek convention.

I felt quite satisfied with myself, having brought this piece of rebellious technology to heel and reaffirming my dominance over a slab of circuitry and buttons. However, once the red mist began to settle, I soon realised that not only the hard drive had been obliterated under my rage-filled assault, but also the nine chapters of the new book I had been working on. Like an amateur, I had neglected to save a back-up copy on an external drive.

As you can imagine, my sense of triumph and glory quickly faded and was replaced by a sickness that could only be experienced by someone who had just woken up to discover that the beauty he had pulled the night before, was actually a dude. 🙁

Back to square-one!

    I’ve been there with random frustration/arguments against technology myself haha. Sad to hear your works been lost and I hope you’ll soon retrace your words through your mind and type that zombie magic to life (it is zpoc you’re working on?). Best of luck 🙂

      That’s right, Lee,

      It was a new series in the ‘zpoc’ genre. Struggling to get back to it now though, but it’ll happen. I promise! 🙂
