Boy did I panic! I almost lost my book! The floppy I had it on decided not to work. I've been working and editing all week and probably part of last week and have just used the disk and not backed it up on my computer. Stupid, I guess, but the last time I tried to back up from my disk to the computer I somehow accidently wrote over the new on the disk and lost my revise. So....
I FINALLY found where I could automally repair, I think, and look for and repair bad sectors on a disk. I did that and it fixed it so that the disk worked. But, apparently where it was bad cost me a few pages. I only lost about three pages of part one and it messed up the format some. And, being in a panic..when it did decide to work, I saved it immediately and, naturally, it saved over the existing copy on my computer. Hence the lost pages. All I wanted to do was save it asap before it decided not to work again!
I went back to my part one on Share a Story, copied and pasted it into word but now it's different print and will not format properly. AAARRRGGGHHH!!!!! to use one of Lynda's little notions. lol
But, thanks to my posts here I can at least recover the part that I lost. I'll just have to retype it. (SOMEWHERE THERE IS ANOTHER TYPED COPY, BUT OF COURSE I CAN'T FIND 1-7 PAGES. And Pam has a copy she's reading)haha.
