    Finals week and the Death of a Pet

    Things have been pretty shit these last few days. Due to the last months of school and the demise of my dog today, i've been unable to work on any of my stories as i planned. However, this coming Thursday the semester is over and i can begin work on writing anew.

    I apologize for the lack of updates and i hope to rectify this in the coming months.

    Unfortunate News Regarding Dark Shores.

    Well, Chapter 14 is going to be delayed due to the file i stored it on being corrupted. Meaning, i have to restart from scratch. Thankfully i was nearing completion and will go and so it shouldn't take as long as it has to rewrite everything. Please be patient, as i know you are itching for the latest installment.

Ouch! and ouch again, best of luck!

C'mon, just use Gdocs like I do! It's safer!

2232082 Actually, I don't use GDocs, for the simple reason that I write during my train commuting time, when, notably, I got no internet :ajsmug:

But yeah...
1. Use a simple format like RTF for storing these things; it's much harder to corrupt, and even when messed up somehow, it's easy to still retrieve text from it.
2. MAKE BACKUPS! :flutterrage:
3. If you get me that corrupted file... I might see if I can recover something from it.

Thankfully i was nearing completion

Not sure how that is in any way "thankfully"; it just means you lost more :unsuresweetie:

Its a double edged sword. While i did lose more, having it almost done lets me rewrite it with a near exact idea of how i want the chapter to go.

Google docs. Save yourself some hassle and start writing on there. All you need is a gmail account.

I wouldn't trust Google Docs, personally, but then I'm just wary of cloud storage in general. I prefer paper for drafts of things I wouldn't want to lose to the vagaries of electronic storage. You also don't need the internet for paper.

Yikes. Good luck rewriting all that.

Unsmiley face.
