Who Wants to be a Luddite?

So I guess it's time to bite the bullet and get this computer fixed. I honestly thought I'd managed to do it myself with a rebuild but it seems there is just something fundamentally wrong with my videocard. I can't avoid it any longer.

I lost around two hours writing tonight and that was really the final straw. I shall continue to edit what I have and should have a new chapter of PP up tomorrow but I'm going to have to fix this once and for all.

It is one of the worst feelings in the world to have your computer freeze, leaving you staring at a screen unable to hit just one more key that would have seen the last two hours of work saved. I'm not going to say which story I was working on as that will only make a certain group all the more despondent.

On a more positive note, I have my library in order finally - my books are all out of their boxes and on the shelves. Once I have a few more things in place (like an actual desk) I'll have my wonderful writing environment back, which will please my muse to no end.

Something new...

Well, first I guess I should acknowledge all you patient little buggers and say thank you for all the support you've given me over the last few months, and all those little nudges that have let me know how much you've all been suffering :)

The first part of a new chapter for MVO is now up on the appropriate blog. I have split this chapter into three parts - the easier to post it so you guys have something to read while I get my act together.

My writing has been terribly fragmented over the last few months, and I have had to delve back into my stories, reading the last few chapters before I start to write again. Then I have had to get all my handwritten notes in order (which is a bloody pain in the ass) and then I could start to work again.

Fingers crossed that updates will be a lot more regular from now on. Part 2 of Chapter 22 should not be too long in coming, but the next section to see the light will probably be a new chapter for Pentonbridge Pig.

Stay tuned :)
