Tragedy! The programme I use normally does an auto save about every ten minutes. And if you don't save it and it shuts down, it always, always presents you with a recovered file. So how come today, after I finished the chapter (adding 3445 words) and saved it, how come when I opened it up, it gave me a version that was without most of those words?!!! I did everything I could but it was nowhere to be found. On a positive note, at least I knew what happened in that chapter, but there was some really good dialogue - actually a soliloquy if you want to be particular - that is gone forever. I rewrote as best I could (that's the problem with being a pantser, I suppose!) and finished the chapter with exactly 3500 words (added to the 1013 I'd done yesterday). Man, what a way to lose motivation!! So what have I written today? 6945 words, or just 3500?
