NaNoWriMo Day 4 - Disappointment
I go look through my notes and... nothing. What? Where did all my hard work go? Why do I only have half the info I thought I did?
Because several days ago my computer fell asleep and never woke up. I had to do a hard reboot, and it appears I forgot to hit save before the computer fell asleep. I lost eight hours of research time.
Fortunately, I remembered my search terms and Google remembered which pages I'd visited, so I was able to recreate most of my research in half the time it originally took.
Still, most annoying, as those several hours recreating my work could have been better spent creating new wordage. Also annoying are those few factlets that would have been perfect, if only I could remember what they were.
Her Grace wants you to know that 19th Century clockmakers all clustered around Clerkenwell.
