Moving & Writing & Missing Files

Hello everyone! Many of you already know this but I'm making it public and official- my family packed up and moved across country this summer! We left Whidbey Island, Washington and bought our very first house in Western Kentucky. I'm so relieved to finally have that bit of drama behind us. What a trip...maybe someday I'll write about it but for now it's best left in the dredges of my memory.

Writing is picking up. I'm gearing up for NaNoWriMo which starts on November 1. 50,000 words in 30 days. I've been taking notes and brainstorming on the story I'm going to work on.

I've been working on a book the last few weeks, working out some kinks and getting the storyline back on track. I went to work on it yesterday and the file is gone. The main file it was in is still there along with the synopsis, pictures, notes, etc...but the writing is gone and I don't know what happened to it. I know I saved it because I've been working on it for weeks.

Thankfully I printed it out and have a hard copy of it but retyping it all in is going to be a pain in the rear.

Anyway, I'm reading "What Happens In London" right now- another Julia Quinn masterpiece. She is quickly working her way up in ranks of my favorite authors. Up there with Jane Porter, Francine Rivers, and Karen Kingsbury.

We'll start painting our house here soon, the interior. Everything is white right now and now that I actually own the place I'm going to use COLOR!! The kitchen is going to be 2 different shades of orange that I think will look amazing with the white washed cabinets. That's where I'm starting first. I'll post some before and after pics when I'm finished.
