Some Days are Frustrating...

Silly cape-making follies left me exhausted, and I hit the pillow early last night, slept a lot, woke for breakfast, and started falling asleep again. So I went back to bed. Woke feeling much better, and tackled the flash fiction piece I was doing for #fridayflash and Brigit's Flame.  (How the heck do you get a community tagged as such using the html?)

Got that done and tried to post it; had too many technical difficulties and headed out for the Lytheria Halloween Party late and very frustrated.  Talked with people and did music, which was good, though some stuff I wanted to do in honor of it being Halloween I normally do on autoharp and I had only the guitar--one instrument is enough to drag into a monster party, and I didn't have time to tune the autoharp before the party anyway.  Did pretty well on those, though.  Left feeling much less frustrated, to hurry back and re-read my entry to the Torn World contest, polish it, scan the art, and submit it.

And I couldn't find it anywhere. Not in this computer or the ancient one upstairs or on either USB drive.  I found other stuff I'd wondered if I still had, but those words appear to be totally lost.  Sigh.

So instead of starting NaNoWriMo, I rewrote the whole thing.  (Why waste a perfectly good piece of art?)  Still, it's not the same.  Maybe better, maybe worse (most likely a bit of both), but not the same. 

Hopefully, I redid it in time, though with the Daylight Savings Time change and the differences in time-zones, I'm not positive about that.

So now I'm reading on twitter people's 2000-3500 word NaNo brags and feeling frustrated.  And tomorrow I have to take the girl to a meeting, which will tie up my time for probably several hours. 


Then I turn to my e-mail and find other stuff to talk about.  But it doesn't fit the theme of this post, so you'll have to wait for the next one!
