What do you think?

As some of you may or may not know, our computer crashed a couple of weeks ago. I'm still having problems with the darned thing. Luckily when I got on last week I was able to enter all my blogging and set them up to post at later dates. Crazy machine. When did I get so dependent on a computer??

Anyway, in the midst of all this rigamarole, I lost all my writings -- short stories, articles, plot outlines for future books, all the revisions of all three books, as well as my listings of the agents and publishers I've submitted to and what their responses were. I have tried downloading my old copies and have had no success at all. It's like trying to cook Thanksgiving dinner on a hot plate. I am so frustrated.

It has occurred to me that perhaps this is a message for me. It could be God's way of telling me that writing is something I should not be doing; to give it up and let it go. Or, it could be a test to see if I have the heart and the strength to keep at it and not let a roadblock get me down. I can't decide.

So, I'm asking those of you who may read my blog, and those who may have read my work, what do you think??

No, don't give up! You LOVE writing, and you're really good at it. Success is just around the corner for you, my friend. And, I want to be the first one in line to get your autograph at your first book signing! Keep plugging away! I happen to be married to the best computer fixer in the world, give us a call if you need someone to look at your computer.
