I totally love hearing from you guys. Your requests are my command. And most of the time I read all my reviews. I haven’t read any reviews lately, so if I haven’t liked them it’s not because I don’t like them. I’ve been avoiding them so I could focus on writing. Once I get past these looming deadlines, I will go back and try and catch up with all the reviews I have yet to read.
Which brings me to a note I received on one of my post. A reader really got on my case for changing deadlines with book releases. I felt so bad. I really try and meet them, but my life has been all kinds of crazy this past year. I’ve had many strange illnesses that I haven’t talked about and other life changing events that remind me I’m human.
But no excuses. I’ve been writing everyday so far lately. New Year’s Resolution. I’m so pleased about that. And I’m really hoping to make all my deadlines this year.
With that said, I offered to post another chapter for a patient Jade who is ready to read Broken Lens. And of course, because my life can never be easy, I ran into a little trouble.
I’m not sure what other authors do, but I try to write whenever and wherever inspiration hits. And sometimes that means I’m not using my main laptop. In fact, I have three computers that have files saved on, my main and two others. And I have a handful of thumb drives I keep in case I’m out and can use a different computer not my own.
I open up my Broken Len file and I’m scrolling past the first chapter when I notice a note in between the first chapter and the rest I’ve written. What does the note say?
(There are missing chapters that need to be added)
I started this book a while ago and I for the life of me can’t remember where I’ve saved those “missing chapters.” In fact, reading the chapter that follows it, I know there are at least two chapters I’m missing. So I search my other computers and thumb drives and come up empty. I know I wrote them because I know what I said.
For a couple of days, I searched until I finally gave in and rewrote the first of two chapters. And I’ve posted it. Sorry for the delay, it’s chapter two on this post. This is for you Jade. The link is below.
