Pawswords for my 69,000 word "novel".
Charlie comes towards me to comfort me as I turn off my pc in despair.
Why? I have a 69,000 word novel that I wrote and abandoned three years before saved on my hard drive.
My main assignments for my writing course is an assessment of the first three chapters of my novel. What an opportunity!
Unfortunately I had password protected it.
Could I think of the password three years later?
Could I unlock the document trying all sorts of fiendish things as found on the internet?
Oh lookee here – here’s the FLOPPY DISK I used as back-up.
I have bits and pieces of the novel scattered around my C:drive but this one document is the whole kit and kaboodle.
Charlie helps out checking all my wiring is ok! He couldn’t find a floppy disk drive either!
