I got my novel out to proofreaders last night and both said they've received it as of today. I'm extremely grateful for them, taking the time to read my rough draft prose so that they can explain to me everything that's wrong with the novel. I don't know what I'd do without them.
Meanwhile, I've started work on a short story I want done for this month's Critical Mass meeting. I'm 2,000 words in, and I may have figured out what was wrong with my Asus. We're using a different flash card, one that's been carefully reformatted. I'll see if that makes a difference.
