Since my last post I haven’t felt too great. The first week after Jerry’s death I managed to write a chapter. But this past week was awful.
On Saturday I had a computer disaster and had to reinstall. I backup so none of my writing was lost. But if you’ve ever had to do this you know how long it takes. Because I have backup drives I was able to reinstall and recover programs I use. Somehow this took me all week.
Now I know it was because of Jerry. I couldn’t have written anyway. I was far too sad. I was able to deny this until the computer was back in shape. The computer horror kept me busy and my feelings at bay.
I probably won’t be writing this coming week either. I have other things I’m going to do. So when I get back to work I will have been away from the novel for two weeks. It’s okay. I don’t feel ready yet anyway.
