Bright Idea

October 30, 2012 Uncategorized  4 comments

I had this bright idea that I would start posting some writing I worked on for a while, some time back, a pretty long piece, actually.

I could serialize it, in effect, meaning I have something in backup if I don’t want to write or don’t have time to do a blog.

So, I started looking.

Clearly, based on this blog, I didn’t find it.

I did, however, spend enough time looking that it’s now really too late to do much else.

I am going to keep looking, I virtually never lose a file like that, but it’s hard now because I can’t remember the name of a single character other than there was a cat named Stiletto.

Of course, I can also not remember the name of it.

Thus far, using those parameters, I haven’t found it yet.  I have an old hard drive I haven’t looked on, and an external drive.

I have disks, too, but let’s hope it doesn’t come to that.

I’m pretty good about my file organization, although I have never liked using the whole My Documents, My Pictures, My Music stuff.  I always used my desktop and specific folders, but now things are not as tidy as they used to be.

So, if I find it, I’ll do that tomorrow.

If not, I’ll keep looking.

    OH, I feel that pain, Ms. Constance…that is so *frigging* annoying when that happens. And you can only remember one character name, and not even the date you last worked on it…yes, I’ve done that. Makes me grrrrrr!

    Looking forward to reading this (when you find it!) …anything with a cat named stiletto has caught my interest!

      I know, it sucks that I can’t find it. I really thought it was in my email, it’s common for me to email myself a file, but what I may have done is just emailed the file, not the text, without any comments to remind me. I need to simply go through my sent folder, but that’s a longish process and since mid-October, I’ve been out of town both weekends, changed a work schedule and then changed back, and started the dining room renovation…

      I do, however, have two days off now, and while I have social commitments – two munches and a wedding – it’s all in town and it’s just a few hours total, so I am hoping to do some real catching up – and looking for – over the next couple days.

    I suppose you can’t search on the word “stiletto”?

    • MsConstanceExplains  says:

      I have searched for stiletto and stiletto cat and even a few random nouns, too, like tea or bed or shirt that I KNOW were in it. I fear my next look is going to be through old disks.

      On a bright note, though, I did find a file with some old writings that I have updated and recycled, so that’s something, isn’t it?
