But Then: Grace, and an Audiobook

I had to plan my repair call appointment about a week out, and yesterday we did a thorough check-in and started a repair ticket. A mailer box is on the way, and directly after the appointment was over, my many-times-replugged laptop… awoke spontaneously before my eyes!

So I was able to trim up the 4th Sequence beta audiobook reading tracks, and post them to evaelasigue.bandcamp.com.  This one is currently reading only, though the first three include bookends of music by Phutureprimitive. All are listen/download by donation.

I’ve also retrieved all of my most recent draft work. I have done a bit of rewriting under duress of loss before, but it’s nicer when efforts aren’t wasted. So, I’m glad for this much, and a battery replacement may not take too long. It’s definitely been a while since my last major story threat. Adversity is not to be underestimated, but it is possible yet to triumph in doing what can be done. The wisdom of the moment.

 

Misfortune: Gremlin Attack

I was looking forward to adding another audiobook chapter to the story bandcamp, as stated in the previous post, but a new minor issue of an erratically charging battery just evolved this very morning into a laptop that won’t turn on.

This is a really heavy obstacle to a lot of things. I have some equipment to be able to keep writing and posting, but most production or development has to stall. The only current option is send-in service, and I’m not sure how long that could take during the shutdown crisis. Most everything is very recently backed up!

But, not the audiobook chapters I just recorded for the 4th Sequence. If you’d like to enjoy a version, all the live videos are stored on the Facebook page for Bones of Starlight (@bonesofstarlight). There’s a little bit of personal rambling along with that, but the story is all there.

Happy Earth Day.
