But in one of my less-than-bright moments, I downloaded the WIP from Google Docs (makes sense to do it there when the laptops and netbook end up falling into a "general use" category) onto my laptop. Then I promptly forgot that I had done so.
I opened the doc from the other laptop, which, thankfully and luckily, had actually remained with its charger, only to realize i had two missing pages.
I usually reread after a break to get back in the swing of the story. But I think that in this instance, I'm going to have to skip to the next chapter.
When thinking about my stories, I tend to skip around in time. But when I attempted to write that way, it never seemed to work out for me. Instead, plunging head on in a thoroughly linear fashion has worked best.
Which has always seemed a bit contrary. I think one way, and I work another--but I suppose that's how it is.
I know that I shouldn't let a little thing like a laptop charger that was shoved in just the wrong box hold me back. I mean, that's the entire reason for the cloud right? Any device, anytime, anywhere?
So stealing myself to skip to the next character, skip to the next scene, and go on. I can add the missing scene when I find the charger :(
Missing more momentum is the dangerous bit. Can't lose momentum.
