Somehow, I have lost about a week of work on my James manuscript. I can’t find the relevant file anywhere on my main drive, on my backup drive, in any way, shape, or form. My best guess is that Microsoft Word crashed sometime in the background, and I didn’t notice, and hadn’t saved for a few days; that would be highly atypical of me, but “atypical” doesn’t mean “impossible,” and when we eliminate alternatives that appear to be counterfactual, then that which remains — no matter how uncharacteristic — must presumably be the case.
Sighs deeply. Back to the writing board.
