When technical difficulties strike

In my experience, computer problems steal a day from a writer now and then.

My lottery ticket has come up, and my great plan for the week has been unceremoniously shoved aside.

I am both bitter and apologetic.

Rather than reporting, reading and offering analysis today, it appears I'll be on and off the phone with tech support and inserting all sorts of CDs into my drive to reinstall.

I cannot imagine more fun.

Anyway, wanted to explain the lack of posts.

We are doing what we can and may be able to write a bit from an alternate computer or the very iPad this was written on along the way.

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.
