Unexpected Blogging Break

        I'm sorry I haven't been posting regularly, and even more sorry to say that improvement does not seem to be close at hand. My computer is dead at the moment, and since my mom doesn't really like me to use hers too much (that's what I'm doing now, shh), I won't get very many opportunities to post. In all honesty, though, this is probably the best time for this to happen, because my best friends from Maine are coming to stay for most of June. One is coming on the eighth and the other is coming on the sixteenth, and they're both staying until the twenty-sixth. Expect a couple of posts, but not any more. I don't want to get your hopes up. ;) 
        As you might guess, I'm super excited to see my friends again! I haven't seen them for two whole years, so we'll have a lot of catching up to do. And sewing and movie-watching and stuff like that. We write letters, probably more than most people would think healthy, but we actually haven't even talked on the phone during these 24 months. Neither one of use are huge fans of talking on the phone, so we just send letters like mad. 
        On the other hand, this might not have been the best time for my computer to die because I just started my very thorough (hopefully) study of World War 1, and I am putting all of my essays, biographies, timelines, and just plain musings on a blog called The Great War I started just two days before my computer died, but I suppose it's good that I have a valid excuse for blogging. :) 
        That's not the worst of my troubles, however. I have 35,000 + words of my first novels stored on my computer. If I can't get it off, well, I can't imagine ever wanting to write again. I'm just praying with all my heart that my dad or SOMEONE will be able to retrieve that file somehow. Ugh. If all that work was lost, I think I would just cry.



  1. If you're studying World War I, it would be worth your while to find a copy of Sir Martin Gilbert's History of the First World War. It's out of print, but I was lucky enough to find one in a flea market.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation! Our local library system actually has it, so I just ordered it now. :)

  2. Reyna, dear, I am so sorry about your computer crashing I'm assuming it's a laptop? That is icky about your novel! I admire you for being able to think/write it up on your computer as you think up your story. My creativity usually sky-rockets when I try and think and write on the computer at the same time! lol My sister and I usually have about 100 note pads lying around our room that are scribbled with an array of words! lol

    Hope your computer starts working again!

    Blessings -
