I am the author of A Shot At Redemption. It has been just shy of a year since I have logged on to this site. I started rewriting A Shot At Redemption about 2 months ago, and I felt that I had made some real progress. I was going to start reposting the story as soon as I had finished editing what I had posted before and had new chapters to share. I made a mistake...I had the story, outline, and miscellaneous ideas all saved onto 1 USB device. Something bad happened, and it was all erased. I lost 60,000 words of completed story, as well as numerous pages of ideas and my chapter-by-chapter outline. I tried several data recovery programs, but I couldn't recover anything. If anyone has a copy saved, or knows how to recover a copy, I would greatly appreciate not having to start over from scratch. I highly doubt that will happen though. I might start from scratch some day, but I don't think I could see it through right now.
That being said, I am writing again. I have had a Harry Potter idea firmly planted in my head for several months now. I lost the first 2 chapters to the USB issue, but the ideas are still fresh and I have already started again. It does not have a title yet. I probably won't post anything unless it is a one shot or a substantial portion is already written. I apologize to anyone who was waiting for me to repost A Shot At Redemption, I am disappointed too.
