    Wow I'm sorry to hear that. I just lost a short story, about a quarter of it is posted here. It's the first story I have written though so it was a very slow 3k words haha. Can't imagine losing whole novels.

    I worked at the VA for three weeks after my enlistment was up. I couldn't take anymore. I was a patient once last year and it was the worst experience I have ever had in a medical facility.

    Sorry to hear it, Omni. I've had pretty good luck with the little outpatient clinic we have here, but getting through labyrinthine phone menu is ridiculous. The VA: If you don't have PTSD when you start dealing with them, you're guaranteed to have it by the time you're done. LOL

    Yup, six novels written over ten years. Three were a sci-fi series. Won't redo the first three, but will have to rewrite the series because it was awesome. I don't sweat about losing the early short stories and poems. Those have been gone forever now.

    It'll be better next time you do it.

    What I'm doing now is wondering why I even bother plotting out ahead of these cantankerous characters. They always manage to mess up all my plans.

    Well, I'm wishing I hadn't taken Excedrin on an empty stomach.

    Trying to get over a near miss sub on a full. She said the first chapter was the only culprit. Cut it down and get to the action. Loved everything else. Can't figure if that is a R & R or not. She didn't outright say it. I'm working on the chapter now and gonna do a fast edit on the whole thing. I guess I'll send it back but won't say that it was requested, only that I followed some advice.

    Achieving nirvana. You see, I've spent half the day already on the shitter, and I'm just so happy to have a good book and Bluetooth headphones that get signal in the bathroom. I've found happiness in turmoil and anguish.

    Just got back from the VA. All in all, a fairly good and productive visit. (Surprisingly!)
