Book Gone

So, I had your basic good-news/bad-news scenario - the kind folks over at iGargoyle, a site dedicated to the future-is-now cool cyberpunk tech and wearable computing, agreed to serialize and publish the sci-fi novel I started writing a while ago.

It's a nano-technological science fiction story about resistance to ecological spoiling in a post-diaspora future. There are augmented human beings, strange nanotech, and other elements of a story that might fit well at iGargoyle. I had gotten about half way through it, but set it aside when I got stuck, and then was inspired to write "Three Lions" my fantasy novel.

I got up early today to go to a coffee shop and re-tool the first chapter for submission. I had the file on my laptop, but hadn't done anything with it in months - really, since I got to California. I dug up my old notebook that my story notes on it, and set out....

Only to find that the file is corrupted. Gone. I am hoping against hope that I have a copy on my computer at home .... if not, it's just dead. I don't know if I could recreate it, to be honest. I suppose I could, but obviously that would take a lot longer than just editing.

don't delete the file. there are a few possible ways to fix it, or at least recover most of it.

Oh dude.... Hmn nano technology? thats terrible that its corrupted. is there anyway that you could get bits and peices of it off the file before the deletion?

oh no! when my hard drive got wiped out per a nasty virus (I had an old computer, and it wasn't worth it to try to remove the virus after all the damage it had done) I lost some of my writing as well. I know how disheartening that is!
