I have been so caught up with grading and teaching and organizing, I haven't been working on my novel at all. Part of the problem is that I got slammed with Union grievances and events to coordinate, so I was writing. Ha ha ha.
Now, I am back at it. Unfortunately, my laptop died over the weekend. I hope my friend will be able to replace the hard drive, but the good news is that the nerds at the Micro Center backed up my files. I pick up the digital corpse today. Luckily, I put my drafts on this forum, and I remembered that my editor has a copy of my anthology. Phew.
However, I have learned my lesson and am backing work. I get a new hard drive today.
