My writerly failings this week were not overly sinful, just a major pain. You see, OpenOffice saves
your document, but DropBox doesn't upload your edited file until you close the file in OpenOffice.
I had a great writing day on Monday, plowing through several chapters of rewrites. What my major sin was, was heading to the kitchen for a break and never coming back. Instead I thought I had earned a little XBox time. I haven't played in weeks, so why not?
So my snack break, turned into a six-hour Fallout marathon that ended with my sleepy head closing my 'saved' laptop.
What this did was create a 'conflicted' copy of my story. So now I have two copies of my story: one with the chapters I'd been working on, and one with the additions I wrote the next day.
Now I have two files I need to find changes in, and make one completed copy.
Forgive me for I have sinned.
