What I’m about to tell you is my excuse for why I didn’t work on my NaNo project (i.e. Her Demon Lover) over the weekend.
It all started with my husband and I discussing the merits of updating all our Windows machines to Windows 8. Friday night I spent my time looking into upgrading and checking to see if my machine and current software was compatible. I did a complete backup of my system and put everything up on my SkyDrive.
Then Saturday, after doing some yard work I decided to go for it. The Windows 8 install took under and hour and I had no problems whatsoever except that I lost the laptop’s onboard camera. After uninstalling the Dell software I was able to get the camera working again, then had to find new software to take the place of the Dell software. I was up until about 2am. I also had backed up my blog Saturday morning in anticipation of Sunday’s website migration.
Then Sunday I had the website migration scheduled with my host provider. I spent the morning cleaning the house and the afternoon testing the websites that were being moved, including mine. Turns out the WordPress installation was screwed up. When I attempted to fix the issue, I blew up the entire thing and had to start over. Truth be known, had I left it alone and just had the domain names transferred – it would have probably been fine. Live and learn. So that is why there may be many missing images in the blog here. I will have to go back in and update posts with images (if they’re important enough) as I have time.
And this is why I didn’t get any writing done over the weekend. At least it’s a better excuse than, “The dog ate my manuscript.” I don’t have a dog. Instead, I have two very geriatric, needy house cats whose worst offense to my writing is trying to sleep on my shoulder and crawl on me as I type.
