Some are welcome, while some are forced upon us.
Recently, as I worked on my current WIP, I stepped away to reheat my tea. When I returned, I realized a Windows update had begun. Twenty minutes later, it was complete, but unfortunately the negative effects lingered.
When my computer restarted, I saw this.
Ten minutes later, this appeared.
Everything was working fine before the update.
Next, I attempted all of the “Advanced options.” When no option solved my problem, I shut down the laptop. Once I powered it back on, I was greeted with this screen.
I did as instructed and I signed out. After multiple attempts to log on, the computer finally accepted my User Name and Password…all was well…or so I thought.
My entire C drive was gone!
Including my current WIP.
Everything I’d saved over the past 3 years. Gone.
I would have completely freaked out had I not saved most of my documents and photos on a thumb drive…but still. I couldn’t help but think, my computer had been operating fine until the Windows update.
The next day, I purchased a new computer and two days later I received two welcome updates.
The first came from my editor at Harlequin letting me know my third book, the second in the Whispering Slopes series, A MOTHER FOR HIS TWINS, had been scheduled for release on September 1, 2019.
The second update came from my editor at Woman’s World Magazine. I’d sold another 5-Minute Romance, A SUPER BOWL SURPRISE, in stores now.
Any good or bad updates in your world?
