I am so happy you did not loose your story!

This week I had trouble with my laptop. The Dell people thought it was my hard drive and when testing it they reset my computer to Friday. It was Tuesday when they did this. I lost everything I had written over the weekend--about 4 chapters. It turns out my Instawrite CD program was causing the problem so when I was trying to save my story to disc, the computer would shut down. I only had to remove the program and save it to disc the normal way. If they'd only figured this out before I lost a weekend worth of work!

I change my characters' names often. Do you have a "Find and Replace" feature on your word processing program? It is very helpful and then you don't have to hunt and search.

Speaking of characters, is KatieScarlet after my favorite character, the famous O'Hara?

Woowoo, Linda! Sounds like that could be a story itself! Glad you're in, my friend!

Kristen: Yep :P KSO herself.
I'll look for that change feature on my computer. It hasn't been apparent before.

Joanne: Thanks. I hope all who are racing to the finish line make it too. :)
